Let's review a game together...
Earlier this month, Chinese gaming giant Tencent announced a “brand new” game that will be released later this year. The game, War of Zombies isn’t exactly a new game per se, it’s actually been talked about since 2010.
The Chinese blogosphere is abuzz with excitement over a demo for a new single player first-person shooter. That’s right, there is a lot of buzz for a demo. So what exactly makes this demo so exciting for Chinese players? It’s a domestically made FPS, done by a one man studio over the course of one summer.
ArmA III, the next entry in the sandbox tactical shooter series, is expected to be released later this year. But the alpha is already up and running, waiting for people to join. And when something is still in development, you can expect a great deal of glitches and bugs, which fortunately won’t do much harm. They will, however, create funny moments that those who are in the alpha get to experience.
In December, former Battlefield developer Ben Cousins revealed The Drowning, an ambitious first-person shooter aimed at both hardcore shooter fans and casual players alike. The game’s simple two button control scheme is key to bridging the audience gap, and now we get to see how it works.
I wasn’t aware people play video games like Call of Duty in public libraries, but evidently they do in the US state of New Jersey. Or did. The library board there specifically banned first-person shooters from being played on library computers last month.
As the former creative director of DICE Sweden Ben Cousins knows console shooters. His team at Scattered (formerly Ngmoco Sweden) has collectively worked on five Battlefield games, the first three Halo titles, two Far Cry and Crysis games and the upcoming Tom Cruise film All You Need is Kill. If any development team can create a mobile first-person shooter that can appeal to hardcore console and mobile gamers alike, it’s this one, and The Drowning is the game Cousins believes will get the job done.
