Top 10 Upcoming FPS Games of 2017

Whatoplay presents our 10 most anticipated First-person shooters of 2017 Opening our list is Overkill’s The Walking Dead We’ve known how expansive Robert Kirkman’s Zombie franchise is, but we’ve never been given good games to deal with. Sure, we have Telltale’s, but that’s a completely different game. This time, Overkill, creators of Payday, decides to put our zombie-survival fantasies in Overkill’s The Walking Dead. Based on the critically-acclaimed source material, players will be left to survive in a doomed Washington DC. However, its focus on co-op is a game-changer compared to previous Walking Dead games. There will role-playing elements present throughout the game and also stealth mechanics. Not to mention VR is supported! It was slated for release in 2016. Unfortunately the delay was abrupt but it’s a good thing since they’ve just been completely funded.

The game releases sometime this Mid-2017 on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. 9th on the list is Get Even. This game has been on development since its announcement during 2013. It is survival-horror mixed with puzzle mechanics and its developer The Farm 51’s biggest and most ambitious game to date. It takes psycho-horror to a whole new chilling degree. Just recently, on Gamescomm 2016, the devs gave a 45-minute demo on what this game looks like. Of course, it was still in development but the game clearly shows a promising atmosphere from the brilliant sound design, to its eerie walls and floors.

While no other details have been revealed yet, we’re expecting this game to get a 2017 release on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Number 8 is Farpoint We’d like to think that this game takes space-survival and adventure to a whole new level. Considering you’re trapped in a very hostile planet, things will never go the way you expected it to.

Farpoint is a game that places you in a base located near Jupiter. It’s said you need to find your lost teammates and there’s a strange anomaly going on. This PSVR game takes the idea of solitude in an unnerving cosmonaut adventure. It’s not branded as a horror game but the foreign wildlife is gonna leave players uncomfortable. The redeeming thing is that you get to shoot back! The game uses the PlayStation Aim Controller for its shooting mechanics. No release date has been revealad but we’re expecting a 2017 release. Seventh in this list of upcoming FPS games is Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 For a game that was once a product of a small development company, it amped its ambition higher with this third installment of their Ghost Warrior franchise.

It’s the first of the series to feature Triple-A content including diverse mission choices, in-depth exploration and an unforgiving open-world to discover. Being a master marksman isn’t easy and the game runs around three cores: Target, Execute and Survive. You’re an expert marksman on various missions behind enemy lines in Georgia, near the Russian border. How to accomplish the mission is all up to you. It’s a whole new Ghost Warrior and it’s gonna be promising. Mark your sights this April 4, 2017. Number 6 is Robo Recall This was considered as our Top Pick for the most anticipated VR game of 2017. It’s because of two reasons: It’s fun and it’s free! Judging from the trailer full of slick robot killing, it’s gonna be an adrenaline-pumping experience.

We love to see rogue robots inciting a revolution and we love watching them squeal as we pop their mechanical heads with our shooting skills. Aaanywayyy, the game is quirky at most, and it has a wide range of abilities to take down these metallic creatures. You can punch them, bash their heads together, slow down time, or just simply shoot a barrage of bullets right on their chestplates. It’s an Oculus Touch exclusive that’s set to release this 2017. Fifth on the list is Prey There’s just so many First-Person-Shooter games that takes the horror in space. Bethesda finally bootstraps the classic Prey series to the modern platforms. This time, experience the thrill of sci-fi in an alternate 60’s where the Space-Race is still active and JFK was never assassinated. Play as Morgan Yu as you are abducted in a weird yet luxurious ship filled with shadowy creatures. This first person adventure lets you customize your character for crazy alien abilities. It even gets crazier as you uncover a deep secret in its mysterious world. No details have been released but the game is set to release this 2017 on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

Fourth is Borderlands 3 The next big entry to the the acclaimed Borderlands series is still on the works. It was teased during PAX East 2016 and rumors say it’s not gonna be called “Borderlands 3”. Other rumors also mentioned that Handsome Jack might make a return to the series and also tying together characters from Telltale’s Tales Of The Borderlands. New faces are to be expected on the third game and also returning ones. It’s been awhile since we get a new Borderlands game ever since The Pre-Sequel’s not so good entry. With Gearbox still busy with Battleborn, it looks like we might have to wait for more news to come out.

Hopefully, before 2017 ends. Number 3 in the list is Destiny 2 Bungie’s next installment to its Sci-Fi shooter gets more exciting as it promises brand new content and… wait for it… a PC Version? Players will expect new weapons, customizable gear and abilities to make the game fresh and brand new. For sequels, it also expected they will introduce a new gameplay mode and a bigger and faster combat. For its campaign, Bungie promises a good one to make up for the original’s lackluster single-player experience. Perhaps the most anticipated new mechanic would be the space exploration. Although no reports have been confirmed as of the moment, but we know it might happen. Fingers crossed this 2017. Ranked number 2 is Star Wars: Battlefront II DICE has been very busy since the release of Battlefield 1, but with all the success from the game, they managed to tease us with what’s to come on the future of the galaxy far, far, away. Battlefront II focuses on the new movies since the previous game was so focused on the first trilogy. There will also be new maps in relation to the new movies and of course, new game modes. So expect we’ll be seeing the new cast from The Force Awakens and maybe from Rogue One! Aside from Battlefront II, EA has multiple Star Wars titles at their disposal and hopefully they’re gonna shed more light this 2017.

Star Wars: Battlefront II is eyeing for a 2017 release on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Maybe the Switch can get some love too? Here are the runners-up before we reveal the number 1. 11 Rising Storm 2: Vietnam early 2017 pc 12 Strafe early 2017 pc 13 John Wick Chronicles mar 2017 pc 14 Insurgency: Sandstorm TBA 2017 pc,ps4,x1 15 Bulletstorm Remaster 2017 pc,ps4,x1 16 One Life TBA pc 17 Vertigo 2017 pc 18 Due Process TBA pc 19 Project Nova 2017 pc 20 Traction Wars TBA pc And the most anticipated First Person Shooter game this 2017 is Quake: Champions With Overwatch taking the center stage for Competitive FPS E-Sports, Bethesda releases their own big guns with Champions. It’s not as vibrant and kid-friendly compared to Blizzard’s latest IP, but it’s over-the-top hardcore. It’s so fast, and it still has the Quake mechanics we love. It is the first Quake game since 2005 and perhaps the biggest surprise is its diverse set of Champions to dominate its arena-based shooter. These Champions have unique skills and abilities to conquer the battlefield. While details have been scarce, the only good thing we’ve known so far is its focus on the Competitive scene.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t have any console versions. It’s a Microsoft Exclusive and it’s set to release sometime in 2017.
