Have a 'blast' with our pick of FPS games on PC
First-person shooters might be the most popular genre of PC gaming and for good reason.
It really places gamers in the midst of hectic combat whether it’s a stirring single-player campaign or a tense multiplayer match with your friends.
Why don’t we take a look at some of the top first-person shooters available for PC gamers?
2016’s DOOM reboot gets its long-awaited follow-up with DOOM Eternal. Set on Earth, not unlike the original DOOM II, DOOM Eternal launches players through time as they fight all-new demons with an expanded skill set and more challenging combat. Multiplayer goes in a new direction with the Battlemode 2v1 experience.
Hunting Simulator 2
If you’re looking for a more realistic shooter with a slower pace, Hunting Simulator 2 is the one to get. Wield over 100 weapons as you track down critters in the United States and Europe.
Some of the environments are quite stunning to look at and there’s a few DLC packs available if you really get into it.
A throwback FPS to the days of yore when first-person shooters were all about action and not about story, Hellbound takes gamers on a gory demon blasting good time!
Inspired by Quake and Doom with a more modern look and sound, you’ll feel every ludicrous gib splatter onto the dingy ground with this one.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection
At long last, many of Microsoft’s acclaimed console shooters are on the PC. Why not start with Halo: The Master Chief Collection, featuring 6 legendary games in the series including the acclaimed Halo 2: Anniversary and Halo 3: ODST.
Over 100 multiplayer maps with a bevy of modes await you outside of the meaty single-player campaign set in a thrilling science-fiction universe.
Star Wars Battlefront II: Celebration Edition
While it launched with a flurry of controversies, in the years since its launch Star Wars Battlefront II has turned itself around. Although there’s a single-player campaign set in the aftermath of Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, gamers will have more fun with the multiplayer.
Whether you’re doing massive 20 versus 20 matches across iconic battlefields or flying through space in a starfighter, this game scratches that Star Wars itch. This new Celebration Edition tacks on dozens of skins, emotes, and quirky voice lines to the core base game experience.
In the game, you will be hunting down eight targets before the day resets. You will use your wits, skills, and the timeloop to your advantage as every time you die or run out of time you will be starting the day again. It’s not just fast-paced parkour where you go into every fight guns-blazing, you will also have to mix up your style with stealth elements to get through the levels.
You’ll have to stay on your toes too, as whilst you hunt, you’ll also be hunted. As you play as Colt and try to stop the loop on the Island, you will be hunted down by a rival assassin, Julianna, who can be controlled by the AI or by another player in a multiplayer mode.
