FWS News Feed: Military Sci-Fi Video Games for PS4/Xbox One
For PS4 and Xbox One
Battlefield makes up the third arm of the most popular shooters online, and the highly popular games continue onward to the 4th in the series. This time Battlefield 4 is set in 2020, and tells the story of the genesis of World War III between the US, China, and Russia from the POV of US special operators. Once again, the Frostbite engine will be used, and the multiplayer will feature three factions and 64 players per lobby. The game was released on October 29 on the current consoles, and will be released on the next-gen consoles on November 1st. It remains to be seen if the campaign story will be any better than Battlefield: 3.
Call of Duty: GHOSTS
What does a company that established one of the greatest video game experiences of our time do for a follow-up? Bungie was forced to ask then answer that question when they spun the HALO universe off to 343 Industries. Their answer is Destiny. This open-world shooter is set deep in the future on a troubled Earth that has one walled human city left, and Destiny is the story of how humanity is going to take their planet back from the alien horde. It remains to be seen if the Destiny universe will be expanded to a trilogy or even a saga. Much like Call of Duty: GHOSTS, Destiny by Bungie will drop on various consoles, current and next-gen at the beginning of 2014.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
Star Wars: Battlefront 3
One of the most popular Star Wars video game titles of all time on console gaming systems is Battlefront, and finally for the next-gen systems, we are getting a third game. Instead of LucasArts, DICE and EA will be finishing this one with the Frostbite 3 engine...so it will be Battlefield Star Wars edition, I guess. Could be a very cool SW game if done correctly, and offer something new for the online shooting community. It is believed, if everything goes according to plan, Battlefront 3 will drop in 2015 in time for episode VII.
Wolfenstein: The New Order
Warhammer 40k: The Eternal Crusade

Everyone involved is claiming that this WH40K will be a seachange for MMORPGs, and will offer a great deal of freedom and consequences to players. The developer is saying that this will be the best WH40K game of them all. Bold statement, and we will see the results in 2015 on the PS4 and Xbox One.
