Hundreds of new games have launched recently that aim to offer something fresh to gamers who crave a collective collective experience. As we look forward to the gaming holidays of 2019, we’re keeping an eye out for games that are worth investing in.
Console titles like for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will fill the void of new game releases for some time. Online gaming is certainly looking to expand its potential.
This year, Doom hit retail consoles and pushed titles from Valve (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds), EA (FIFA and Madden), Bethesda (Fallout 76), and Namco Bandai (Dark Souls III).
Truly great online gaming comes from interesting combinations of game mechanics. Tournaments, in-game purchasing options, and loot boxes have introduced new components to online games. But we’re intrigued by the next concept that could be pulling the rug out from under gaming foundations: DUST 514.
When you go to buy a game, the only possible element that is not possible is actual multiplayer. Until now.
DUST 514 is a massively multiplayer online battler set in the post-apocalyptic E.T. universe. The game combines online and off-line play in a manner that introduces a (highly modified) version of Call of Duty’s offline multiplayer experience.
At the heart of this game is a single-player story, but a lot of the action is done in a free-for-all, massive competitive multiplayer format. In practice, DUST 514 serves as a tactical online-only shooter with a focus on hero “skins” that represent different units.
Players can choose from a large array of military models, including robots, ships, tanks, and other vehicles.
To put it simply, they can invest in weapons, upgradeable vehicles, and the chance to become the player who ends up battling E.T. Their experience points provide character leveling, progression, and early, late, and high-level PvP gameplay.
If that sounds like “Call of Duty,” then you’re not alone. It wasn’t that long ago that the original game burst onto the scene to a great degree of popularity.
Two decades later, but not for nothing, the player base is still astounding: Call of Duty is the biggest game franchise on Earth.
The company Activision Blizzard (which includes Call of Duty) owns more than 15 million active users, many of them rabidly dedicated. Without question, the franchise is doing everything in its power to capture another generation of gamers who want to experience it like it was originally meant to be played.
The game will be available for the PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One in the future. Like Dark Souls III, the game looks fantastic.
