To say the least 2016 has been a great year, especially if you are a gamer. With 4k, virtual reality, and so much more. Here are some newly released gaming titles.
Released October 21, 2016
Battlefield 1 is one of the most realistic first-person shooters released in 2016. Set in the time period of World War I. Battlefield 1 includes destructible environments, reworked melee combat, various different vehicles; which includes horses, and a collection of World War I era weapons. The game strongly emphasizes teamwork to be used in the online setting. Even in the campaign as well. For instance, while in the campaign, players can take control of various different characters while in playing through the missions. If one of the specific characters dies or gets killed, instead of being set back to the latest checkpoint, the player then switched to a character that is still alive.
CALL OF DUTY: INFINITE WARFARE
Released November 4, 2016
Infinite Warfare is set in space. Yes…SPACE. Except it’s not the first time a Call of Duty game has been set in “space”. Infinite Warfare will be the first that you get to play and actually be in space. With a reworked engine, zero-gravity environments and futuristic guns, multiplayer should get interesting. The game will have zombies, just like the last three Call of Duty tiles have. Even though it’s unclear if the beloved zombie mode is going to feature the same mechanics as multiplayer and campaign, my guess is that it will not.
So, the “disclaimer” if you will, Infinite Warfare has had the lowest pre-order numbers in all of the Call of Duty titles. Also, has become the second most disliked video on YouTube. Take that however you’d like.
(Just facts, not bashing Infinite Warfare or its creators in any way, also not trying to skew anyone of purchasing the game)
CALL OF DUTY: MODERN WARFARE REMASTERED
Released November 4, 2016
The game that started it all…at least is thought to be the game to set the standard in current gen first person shooters. Call of Duty 4 featured strictly “Boots on the ground” gameplay, which is said to make the game so balanced that made it so you had to rely on skill, tactics, and awareness. It is only right that Infinity Ward did what was right and remastered it. Retexturing, remapping, revamped sounds, small and major tweaks with the original Call of Duty 4 engine. The nostalgia alone should get you to purchase this game.
Released October 7, 2016
Set in 1968, Mafia III is an open-world action-adventure game. If you haven’t played Mafia I or II, you may have overlooked III. The game is a reimagined version of New Orleans. Mafia III is very decision based, meaning something you decide early on in the story mode can alter what happens later on in the story mode. You can be smart about how you approach missions or go in “guns blazing”. From using to handguns and shotguns to knocking out mobsters to steal their riches, Mafia III is one of those games that you can play for hours and it only feels like minutes.
Released October 28, 2016
Titanfall 2 is very much like its predecessor. The game is a first-person shooter where players can control the pilot and also mech-style exoskeletons called Titan (hence the name ‘Titanfall’). The pilot has a various amount of different abilities to use during combat. Titanfall 2 introduces seven brand new gameplay mechanics, all with a unique quality, a sliding mechanic, the pulse blade, and much more.
