By now, multiplayer Shooter fans are utilised to purchasing new games each year. That does not mean players must follow the tendency each and every moment while this may be the standard now.
Case in point: if you are a shooter fan, then you ought to really be enjoying 2016’s shooters (Titanfall two , Battlefield 1, Overwatch), rather than this season’s Call of Duty: WWII and Star Wars Battlefront II. I am not saying you should not purchase COD: WWII or Battlefront II, no. But in case you’ve got a choice, I propose opting to purchase and play Titanfall two , Battlefield 1 or Overwatch rather than these two. Why? Allow me to clarify.
Why You Need to Perform Titanfall two
If you are a Call of Duty enthusiast, then odds are you’re a major fan of twitchy, arcade shooters, right? In that case, then there may be nothing greater than Titanfall two . It is created by Respawn Entertainment, that is Composed of former founding members of Infinity Ward (y’understand, the studio behind Modern Warfare, MW2), And while it does not have killstreaks or even scorestreaks, it will have motherfuckin’ bots which you could jump to and only stomp the shit from everybody. You see that right! Robots! Mechs! Mechs with knives, mechs with much more and sniper rifles.
It got an energetic participant Foundation on PC and consoles, so you won’t have any issues Detecting a game on weekdays or weekends. And Respawn is pumping Out makeup, tweaks and events a year after launching!
If you’re looking for an arcade-y shooter this year, then go give it a shot. And as an added bonus, the game’s single-player portion is just outright fantastic.

Why You Should Play Battlefield 1
For those looking for something slower paced than Call of Duty, sad to say, there’s no Battlefield game out this year, but there is Star Wars Battlefront II, which is made by the same folks over at DICE. While the game has classes and vehicles, it’s far — super far — from what made Battlefield the beloved franchise that it is.
If you’re looking for something to play while waiting on Battlefield 2018, then go pick up Battlefield 1. It’s still very much played by hundreds of thousands of gamers daily, and DICE is still releasing BF1 Premium content, and free stuff, along with constant tweaks to the core gameplay, and even events.

Why You Should Play Overwatch
If you’re reading this, chances are, you’ve played Overwatch or at least have heard of it. It’s Blizzard’s massively successful hero shooter that gets all heroes and maps for free…forever! Seeing as it’s made by Blizzard, it’ll be supported for a long, long time. Just this year, we’ve seen new heroes added, as well as new maps.
It’s the perfect shooter for those who want a casual fix, or for those who want something more intense, there’s Competitive mode.

Why You Shouldn’t Be Playing Call of Duty: WWII
First off, there’s a ton of bugs that have yet to be exterminated. Sledgehammer Games has been silent in some of the gameplay changes the community wants for some odd reason. Longtime COD fans might find Call of Duty: WWII’s multiplayer a bit limiting as well.
There are also features that are still not working as intended a month after launch. Oh, there are server issues as well. Ranked Play seems to be running into issues too, with people saying that wins are counting as losses.

Why You Shouldn’t Be Playing Star Wars Battlefront II
While EA dialed back the microtransactions in Star Wars Battlefront II, the publisher has mentioned that it’s coming back. Will it affect gameplay? Be cosmetics only? Your guess is as good as ours at this point.
The gameplay itself isn’t as deep as other shooters, so if you’re not a Star Wars fan, it might not hook you in as much.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 – It’s hard to believe that Black Ops 3 is more than two years old now. Sure, there’s jetpacks and wallrunning, but they’re done in a way that it’s not too much. Gun balance is fine as well, and there’s still a sizable player base out there right now.
If you prefer Treyarch’s blend of Call of Duty cocktail, then go play Black Ops 3 (either again or the first time), to see why the studio is the top-tier COD studio.
Rainbow Six Siege – Rainbow Six Siege is another game that’s more than two years old, but it’s like fine wine that it gets better with age. There are more players for Siege now than there were at launch, which is a testament to Ubisoft’s game design and post-launch support.
