Visceral Games’ “Exciting New IP” Could be an FPS

The last we heard of Visceral Games’ new IP, all we knew was that it was apparently “heavily backed by EA leadership” and that it was a “thrilling online action shooter game”.
-PSLS (Next-Gen, PS3, Visceral games, Xbox 360)

Hard to tell

Agreed
...it was apparently “heavily backed by EA leadership” and that it was a “thrilling online action shooter game”...

Translation: lots and lots of DLCs.

A FPS Dead Space spin off?
MattyG  +   860d ago
That would be awesome, but could that be considered a new IP? Even if it didn't have Dead Space in the title, but was in the same universe?
MizTv  +   860d ago
That could be interesting
Red_Orange_Juice  +   860d ago
you deserve more votes down, cos that WOULD NOT be interesting
MizTv  +   859d ago
Thanks
And I'm sorry for being interested in a game

Please be a next-gen launch! Might be awesome if so.

I really hope it's a brand new IP. I'm a big fan of Dead Space (and Visceral Games for that matter), but Dead Space 3 looks like they're reaching a bit too hard. I think they could use a fresh start for awhile and then come back with a killer Dead Space in a few years.

I will be glad when most companies remember that there are other types of games to make than FPS.

Which part of FPS is new and exciting? Ever more of the same and they wonder why sales are down.

Title has a grammatical error.
FanMan  +   860d ago
i noticed that too.

If the F is pronounced eff, it gets an an, rather than an a. Words like fart, however, are pronounced differently, so it's a fart.
TooTall19  +   860d ago
my mistake Edit: I don't tell people, "I play eff pee esses." I say, "I play first-person shooters." That's why I think it should be a instead of an.

Yeah, but the 'word' here is still FPS, even if you don't use it.
so:
Visceral Games’ “Exciting New IP” Could be an FPS
or
Visceral Games’ “Exciting New IP” Could be a First Person Shooter

are both correct, but you can't go with a FPS because the word in use here is the short form, and that's pronounced with an eff.
TooTall19  +   860d ago
Even though it was abbreviated FPS is commonly read as first-person shooter. In that case "a" is correct according to the Chicago Manual of Style.
doctorstrange  +   860d ago
I disagree that it's commonly read in full, that's like saying people read PS3 and PlayStation 3.
TooTall19  +   860d ago
Sorry it's not even that big of a deal. I read just about everything by the abbreviation (RPG, RTS, PS3). FPS and TPS are the only exceptions I can think of. People can read it differently.

What's exciting about another FPS?
from the beach  +   860d ago
They're all the same right, oh ye of discerning taste.
BitbyDeath  +   860d ago
Nothing exciting about yet another FPS
RandomDude655  +   860d ago
A new fps was exciting 7 years ago.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   860d ago
Well technically 5 years ago. After Cod 4 any new FPS Ip was considered exciting because the game could be influenced by "Cod 4's style." If only we would of known the FPS genre would turn for the worst.

Reads first line
*exiting new ip*

"yayyyy =)"

*fps*
=(
TenkoTAiLS  +   860d ago
Another FPS...sigh..
Also where the hell (no pun intended) is the sequel to Dante's Inferno. There has to be more, the ending made it seem that way. That and there is two more poems after Inferno.

Americans love their guns don't they? what's stopping them from making a game based on a different genre?
Cajun Chicken  +   860d ago
Hmm, not so keen. I prefer Visceral making action/adventure third person games.
CanadianTurtle  +   860d ago
If Visceral is making an FPS, then I'm very much excited. Yes i agree that we have enough FPS games this gen, but I know for a fact that this won't be an ordinary military FPS. Look at the games that they've developed. They are very creative games that explore really cool worlds and universes that stretch the mind. I'm talking about DeadSpace. Really cool enemy designs too, and a wide selection of enemies.

The reason I'm excited is because this is going to be a unique FPS game, I know it. I'm guessing that it will have cool weapons and great variety in enemies and cool environments.

If it's from the guys who made DeadSpace, then it's going to be unique in some way respectively.

I prefer 3rd person shooters!
GribbleGrunger  +   860d ago
If it's a FPS you can take 'exciting' out of that headline.
Belking  +   860d ago
Farcry 3 says hello.
GribbleGrunger  +   860d ago
and here I was thinking Farcry 3 was an RPG in a first person perspective. I'll give it a miss then. Does that make Skyrim a FPS too?

Farcry is an FPS gramps, perhaps it's time for you to retire if at your age you can no longer distinguish genres.
Belking  +   859d ago
I guess he's a bit confused....lol
tigertron  +   859d ago
Please no more first person shooters. *sigh*
