Resident Evil 7: Biohazard did the unthinkable – it practically revived Capcom’s survival-horror juggernaut by switching from third-person to first-person and embracing its signature scares once again. That series installment’s winning formula is being revisited for a sequel that’s looking mighty impressive (and equally terrifying). Resident Evil Village marks the return of Ethan, who must explore a mysterious village after being betrayed by Chris Redfield. The game’s snow-covered European expanse is jam-packed with supernatural baddies, strange village denizens, and an assortment of puzzle situations that should be familiar to Resident Evil fans. Resident Evil Village looks to continue the goodwill garnered by its predecessor and keep Capcom’s horror-filled IP thriving for years to come.

90’s babies will most certainly get a kick out of this one. Rise of the Triad Remastered brings back the classic FPS with widescreen support, mouselook, and a revamped multiplayer component. Once again, you’ll choose between five characters during a mission that entails taking down a cult that’s engaging in some very unsavory activity. Weapons are divided into three categories (bullet, missile, and magic), which means you’ll have a nice arsenal of guns on command for your cult killing activities. This unexpected remaster is perfect for all those 90s PC FPS heads who loved a good DOOM clone or two.

If you still yearn for the days of classic DOOM, Duke Nukem, and Hexen, then Dread Templar will be the game to fulfill your retro FPS desires. The game’s fast-paced gunplay, a huge array of firearms/melee weapons at your disposal, and the bloodthirsty army of demons that want you dead produce the perfect formula for this type of throwback shooter. Dread Templar’s plot is simple and straight to the point – your gun-toting avatar is on a mission of revenge that just so happens to transport him to Hell. Got it? Good. Now get to work and show those dreaded demons who’s boss!

Severed Steel

Severed Steel – Announcement Trailer | PS4Severed Steel is a stylish, single-player FPS featuring a fully destructible voxel environment, loads of bullet time, and a unique one-armed protagonist. It's you, your trigger finger, and a steel-toed boot against a skyscraper full of bad guys. Chain together wall runs, dives, and dropkicks, to take every last enemy down. Coming later this year…2021-03-15T13:00:11Z

Developer: Greylock Studio
Publisher: Digerati
Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PC (Steam)
Release Date: TBA

Just cause you only have one arm at your disposal doesn’t mean you’re completely defenseless. Severed Steel throws you into that unique scenario and still does a great job of making you feel like an ultimate badass. This FPS ups the ante by including bullet-time mechanics and destructible environments, which both do an awesome job of making all the onscreen action look and feel all the more exciting. Oh, and you never have to worry about reloading, by the way – carefully pick your shots and shoot to your heart’s content. Besides your gun mastery, you’ll also be able to take down the opposition via sliding kicks and by throwing your weapons at them. Severed Steel definitely looks like a sleeper hit in the making.
