Heads up, Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault is free on Origin right now. Add it to your account, and you get to keep it forever! If you ask someone what their favourite Medal of Honor game is, you generally get one of two answers: Allied Assa...

Sniper Elite 4 is 'built from the ground up' for current-gen

I never would've guessed Rebellion had so many Sniper Elite titles in it, but people keep buying them, so the studio's output has been that series and not much else these past several years (aside from a reportedly badass Battlezone reboot ...

Day of Defeat spiritual successor Days of War is on Kickstarter

World War II games are like buses: you wait a decade for one, and then two show up at once! Hot on the trail of Battalion 1944, Driven Arts’ Days of War hit Kickstarter last week with a goal of $100,000. At the time of writing, the g...

Battalion 1944 hits 200% funding on Kickstarter with three weeks remaining

I’ve been having a bit of a binge on World War II FPS games recently. Mainly Valve’s massively underappreciated Day of Defeat: Source, but also a bit of Medal of Honor: Airborne here and there. It’s a shame the genre kind...

Is it about time to revive the WW2 shooter?

Years ago, World War II shooters were everywhere. Then the bubble burst. Activision, EA, and all the pretenders trained their sights on more contemporary settings, quickling transitioning series like Call of Duty, Medal of Honor, and Battle...

Happy Friday! Have a HAWP about Ecco the Dolphin

It's Friday afternoon, and you know what that means. Game news slows down. You're doing lots of sitting around idly, pretending to be busy, waiting to slip out of work and start up the weekend as soon as possible. Maybe you need something t...

Reminder: Enemy Front out next week, it's actually decent

Pretty sure I'm the only person in this industry that's talking up Enemy Front. Is it going to be a mindblowing revolutionary first-person shooter? No, not really. Is it going to be pretty fun? Yeah, I think so at least. But it's understan...

Watch the US Forces in action in Company of Heroes 2 DLC

It's been almost a year since the release of Company of Heroes 2 and now we've got a trailer for the first DLC content for Relic's WWII RTS title. There are two new factions included, the US Forces (which you can see in the trailer above) ...

Get a taste of Enemy Front's stealth combat

Enemy Front is the upcoming World War II shooter that feels a whole lot like Far Cry 3. That's a good thing! For one, it's nice to go back to a World War II shooter. It's even nicer when it's just not a straight up mindless corridor shoote...

Back in 2011 CI Games announced Enemy Front, a World War II shooter that was being worked on by Stuart Black who was the guy responsible for Black. It's funny how over-hyped that game was looking back. Anyway, Black left at s...   read

Things go boom in the latest Company of Heroes 2 trailer

The latest look at Company of Heroes 2 shows off just how action packed this real time strategy game is. There's action, explosions, and death all around you in the battlefield. There's so much action here that the trailer even says you sh...

Here's your Company of Heroes 2 campaign trailer

I'm really grateful that Sega has picked up Company of Heroes 2 after THQ's collapse. The original was a great real-time strategy title, one that I had most of my fun with in multiplayer more than the single-player. This trailer for the ca...

Company of Heroes 2 teaser trailer is a little unsettling

Red Orchestra 2 cuts price in half and adds friend pass

World War II shooters, World War II SHOOTERS!

Is it just me, or does the idea of a first-person shooter set in World War II seem really fresh right about now? With the industry being so afraid to touch such a tired concept recently, it seems we've barely seen anybody touch the setting....

Before diving into just how retarded awesome Furious 4 is, know that Gearbox isn't done with the main Brothers in Arms storyline. They'll be getting back to that series when the time is right, but in the mean time they're going to be telling us a new, over-the-top story with Furious 4. Four specialized soldiers are sent directly into the heart of Germany with one mission: Kill Hitler.   read

Robots in WWI: Toy Soldier's 'Invasion' add-on
