2013, in regards to video games, looks to be the year for the genre of first-person shooter games. For fans of FPS games, 2013 is the year to definitely look forward to.
Game Trailers have released a video that gives a comprehensive list of what first-person shooter games are going to be released this year in 2013. Why do FPS games matter? Asides from what has happened in December of 2012, the video game industry along with makers of first-person shooter games have been dragged into the reignited debate on gun violence. The video explains that FPS games are a cash cow for the video game industry which is understandable due to the tournaments, online play, and other features such titles have.
First in the video is “Aliens: Colonial Marines” which is developed by Gearbox Software and published by Sega. This game is directed tied to the movie “Aliens” which came out in the late 1980s. The game takes place after the events of Aliens. This game comes out on February 12.
Second on the list is “Crysis 3” which is published by Electronic Arts. It will be available on several platforms. This is the third main installment of the “Crysis” games. This game comes out on February 19.
Third is “Sniper: Ghost Warrior Two” which is for multiple platforms. That game will be available come March 12.
Fourth is “Bioshock Infinite” which is the third installment of the “Bioshock” series. It will be multi-platformed. Unlike the previous two installments, Bioshock Infinite takes place in another alternate universe; this time, there's a lot of aerial combat taking place. This game will be available in March.
Fifth is “Metro: Last Light” which comes out sometime in March. This is the sequel to “Metro: 2033” which is adapted from the novel of the same name. It takes place in a post-apocalyptic Moscow, Russia where humanity finds shelter and refuge in the city's subway tunnels.
Sixth is “Dead Island: Riptide” which comes out in April. This is the sequel to “Dead Island.” In the story, this game takes place right after the ending of the first game.
The video shows other FPS games that could be released this year. It would seem that 2013 is the year for FPS fans. If you are into such games, then 2013 is definitely the year for you.
