Top Ten FPS Games For 2015


2015 has been an amazing year for all things FPS with some absolutely amazing shooters coming out this year.

To help you sort through all these we have compiled a list of the top ten FPS shooters for 2015 and this list has a bit of everything. From Sci-Fi based shooters to battles fought in 2065 and even some monsters are thrown into the mix. So, no matter your poison there is bound to be something in this list for you.

So, without any further ado here are the top ten FPS shooters for 2015:

Evolve: (PS4, PC, Xbox One):

Developed by Turtle Rock Studios Evolve is an FPS that can be played in both Single-player and Multiplayer modes.

The game is set in a fictional future where humans have successfully discovered ways to survive outside Earth and have begun to colonize other planets. Humans arrived at Shear, a distant planet located in the “Far Arm” of space, and began creating colonies and industrial factories.

As the colonization progressed, humans began to meet resistance from alien life-forms, known as Monsters, that had the ability to evolve by consuming local wildlife.

As the Monsters destroyed the colonies on Shear, a former “planet tamer” named William Cabot was brought out of retirement to deal with the threat and to evacuate the remaining colonists from Shear. Cabot assembled a team of Hunters to eliminate the Monsters and protect their communities.

In this game, you can play as the monster or one of four human hunters that chases them , which is one way that Evolve is different from other shooters in its class and makes this game all the more fun to play.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege: (PS4, PC, Xbox One):

Rainbow Six Siege was developed by Ubisoft Montreal and released on the 7th April 2015. Each player assumes control of an attacker or a defender in different gameplay modes such as rescuing a hostage, defusing a bomb, and taking control of an objective within a room.

The title has no campaign but features a series of short, offline missions called, “situations” that can be played solo. These missions have a loose narrative, focusing on recruits going through training to prepare them for future encounters with the “White Masks”, a terrorist group that threatens the safety of the world.

Few modern shooters can match the heart-pounding exhilaration and immense strategic depth that Rainbow Six Siege achieves with its asymmetrical PvP.

With no respawns, no regenerating health, and only five players per team, every life suddenly feels meaningful and precious (though you can still monitor security cameras and communicate with your team in death).

Running-and-gunning will almost certainly land you on the side-lines, so you’re much better off using your drivable drone to scout ahead or coordinating with your teammates to ensure all sightlines are covered. All in all, an action-filled fun game to play.

Fallout 4: (PS4, PC, Xbox One):

Developed by Bethesda Softworks Fallout 4 is an action RPG that was released on the 10th of November 2015. Even though the game came out later in the year it was received really well.

The main story takes place in the year 2287, ten years after the events of Fallout 3 and 210 years after “The Great War”, which caused catastrophic nuclear devastation across the United States.

You assume control of a character referred to as the “Sole Survivor”, who emerges from a long-term cryogenic stasis in Vault 111, an underground nuclear fallout shelter. After witnessing the murder of their spouse and kidnapping of their son, the Sole Survivor ventures out into the Commonwealth to search for their missing boy.

New features to the Fallout series include the ability to develop and manage settlements and an extensive crafting system where materials scavenged from the environment can be used to craft drugs and explosives, upgrade weapons and armor, and construct, furnish and improve settlements.

Warhammer: End Times Vermintide: (PS4, PC, Xbox One):

Warhammer: End Times Vermintide is an action-filled FPS that was developed and published by Fatshark and was released on the 23rd of October 2015.

The game is a cooperative, action, FPS, and melee combat adventure set in the end times of the Iconic Warhammer Fantasy Universe.

You can team up with three other players to fight against the Skaven, a race of rodent-like monstrous creatures, in the city of Ubersreik. At the end of each match, the players are given the opportunity to roll dice, which determines the weapons they will receive as a reward.

Gothic architecture, narrow winding streets, crumbling monuments, and a terrifying and beautiful night sky all bring the setting to life, while strong vocal performances do the same for the characters.

If you enjoy games steeped in folklore you will love this game. Get lost in the fantasy world while killing enemies with the various weapons at your disposal.

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood: (PS4, PC, Xbox One):

Developed by Machine Games and published by Bethesda Softworks, Wolfenstein: The Old Blood is a standalone prequel to Wolfenstein: The New Order which came out in 2014.

This game will put you through a grinder of tense, exciting, and memorable shootouts in some awesome settings.

The single-player story follows war veteran William “B.J.” Blazkowicz and his efforts to discover the locations of a Nazi compound.

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood is played from a first-person perspective and its levels are navigated on foot. The story is arranged in chapters which players complete in order to progress, separated into two interconnected campaigns.

The game features a variety of weapons, including pistols, shotguns, and explosives, most of which can be dual-wielded. A cover system is also present; players lean in and out of cover instead of the more common system where players lock into cover.

The Old Blood never really gives you time to catch your breath during its descent to zombie-filled strangeness. That unrelenting pace makes it lots of fun, but not as thoughtful as its stand-out predecessor.

Killing Floor 2: (PS4, PC, Xbox One):

Killing Floor 2 like its predecessor Killing Floor was developed and published by Tripwire interactive.

This game is about killing Zombies or “Zeds” as you move around the intricate and varied map. It can be played alone or cooperatively with up to six players.

The game is based on events from the first game, in which bio-tech firm Horzine attempted to create military clones and was hijacked by an insane researcher who unleashed the clones across the UK.

The clones have now rapidly spread across Europe, paralyzing the response from the European Union. In Killing Floor 2, events taking place a month after the first game, the outbreak has spread beyond Europe, causing governments to collapse and communication systems to fail.

Different enemy types are introduced as players complete each wave, culminating to a boss fight as the final wave. Enemy count is determined by the number of players in the game. The boss character is determined randomly upon the start of the last wave, and each boss is defeated differently.

Players equip themselves with melee weapons and firearms, a healing syringe, and a welder used to block passages. Random weapons, ammo, and armor can be found by exploring the level, though players have a limited amount of weight they can carry.

Be careful though You may feel like a crafty escapee when you jump off a balcony or a mezzanine floor to create distance, until the moment you realize that Zeds recognize and use these shortcuts as well. Make sure to always be vigilant of who or what is watching your moves.

All in all a fun experience fending off wave after wave of pesky Zeds as they try their utmost to kill you.

Battlefield Hardline (PS3, PS4,PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One):

Battlefield Hardline was developed by Visceral Games and Published by Electronic Arts, it was released in March of 2015.

This installment in the Battlefield series is different from its predecessors in that the story focuses on crime, heist, and policing elements instead of military warfare. The focus of the game is the “war on crime”, breaking away from the military setting that characterized the series. As such, the main factions in Hardline are the police Special Response Units and criminals.

Another extra element about Hardline is that you have access to military-grade weapons and vehicles, such as the Lenco BearCat, as well as having police equipment such as tasers and handcuffs.

There are also numerous new game modes in Battlefield Hardline, such as Heist where the robbers try to pull off a bank heist while the cops try to stop them, Rescue where the cops try to free hostages held by the robbers, Blood Money where the two teams have to try and steal money from each other and Hotwire where the cops have to chase down the robbers in explosive, high-speed vehicle chases.

On the whole Battlefield Hardline adds an unexpected element to the Battlefield games that makes this one a must-play, especially if you are a fan of the series.

Halo 5: Guardians (Xbox One):

Developed by 343 Industries and Published by Microsoft Studios, this game has singleplayer and multiplayer modes and was released on the 27th of October 2015.

Halo 5:Gaurdians is the fifth mainline entry and tenth overall in the Halo series.

The story follows two fireteams of human supersoldiers: Blue Team, led by Master Chief, and Fireteam Osiris, led by Spartan Locke. When the former goes AWOL to track down the artificial intelligence construct Cortana, Master Chief’s loyalty is called into question, and Fireteam Osiris is sent to retrieve him.

Halo 5: Guardians is described as the “Best Halo Multiplayer in years” because of its better guns and mechanics that were introduced by the developers.

The game preserves many of the core features of the Halo franchise’s gameplay experience. Players step into the MJOLNIR powered armor of a Spartan and control that character’s actions. MJOLNIR armor provides deflector shields, which diminish whilst protecting the wearer from weapons fire but recharge after a short recovery.

Spartans may only carry two personal weapons at a time but may swap them out at any time for any other weapon they find (including those dropped by slain enemies) and may also carry and fire a crew-served weapon (discarded when the player switches back to a personal weapon). Spartans may also throw grenades and use their weapons for pistol-whipping.

Overall this game was fun to play and an updated arsenal and great new mobility mechanics give both campaign and multiplayer a modern touch without sacrificing Halo’s classic feel.

Star Wars Battlefront (PS4, PC, Xbox One):

Star Wars Battlefront was developed by EA DICE, Published by Electronic Arts, and released in November of 2015.

This is the third major release in the Star Wars: Battlefront sub-series and it has singleplayer and multiplayer modes.

Star Wars Battlefront is played from either a first-person or third-person view; players can switch views whenever desired, similar to previous games, except when controlling “hero” characters or their personal guards. Players traverse planets from the original Star Wars trilogy, such as Endor, Hoth, Tatooine, Bespin, and Sullust, as well as the planet of Jakku introduced in the sequel trilogy.

To navigate the game’s various maps, players use a variety of vehicles, including both air and land-based vehicles, such as speeder bikes and AT-STs, which can be unlocked during every match by finding tokens that spawn randomly across the map.

Battles are planet-based, restricting players from exploring space, but the developers have said that they are planning to add space-based combat in the upcoming DLC’S for the game.

The attention to detail in the game is incredible and makes this game one of the most stunning games visually and even more so on PC thanks to the Modifiable settings.

Star Wars Battlefront captures the essence of Star Wars beautifully harnessing the most exciting and memorable pieces of the universe for a unique and spectacular combat sandbox.

Call Of Duty: Black Ops III (PS3,PS4,PC,MacOS, Xbox 360, Xbox One):

Developed by Treyarch and Published by Activision Call Of Duty: Black Ops III is the twelfth entry in the Call of Duty series and the sequel to the 2012 video game Call of Duty: Black Ops II.

Black Ops III takes place in 2065, 40 years after the events of Black Ops II, in a world facing upheaval from climate change and new technologies. Similar to its predecessors, the story follows a group of black ops soldiers.

The game’s campaign is designed to support 4-player cooperative gameplay, allowing for bigger, more open level design and less corridor shooting. As the player character is cybernetically enhanced, players have access to various special activities. The game also features a standalone Zombies campaign mode and a “Nightmares” mode which replaces all enemies as zombies.

From its four-player co-op campaign to the brand-new powers and a fleshed-out Zombies mode, Black Ops III meaningfully pushes the Call of Duty series forward on several fronts. Even where it doesn’t innovate, it still meets the high bar Call of Duty fans should expect.

Black Ops III isn’t the best Call of Duty game ever, but it’s the biggest and most feature-packed game we’ve seen out of the series yet. Simply put this game will give you hours and hours of fun.
