The devs behind Painkiller Hell & Damnation and Deadfall Adventures announced World War 3, an online free-to-play shooter set in a modern conflict. The game will feature authentic military gear and tactics, as well as real-life locations and armies.
Sensationalizing UE4 being some sort of a fantastical game engine that'll bring "Realistic online F2P shooter"...hopefully it'll be one in the future.
I'm really tired of F2P shooters now, can we get some story driven AAA projects going
.... Or you know you could stop playing first person shooter games and go play the games that you want to play. No one has a gun to your head and I'm pretty sure that they didn't just up and stop making games in other genres. Being AAA doesn't automatically mean it's going to be a good game.
He said "story driven" so I'm pretty sure he just wants the industry to put a bit more focus on making shooters like metro or bioshock rather than all the multiplayer focus. The single player in shooters is often an after thought these days.
^ This is what I mean. A good well rounded shooter with a great story and multiplayer. I'm specifically referring to the "package" with all components in it. Halo 5 is one of the only games I've seen far that's done it well. It's not about a gun to my head. I don't have a problem with this game, but I just remember this time last gen we were seeing a lot of innovation in shooters.
