90008

2016 is nearly behind us, and all of the major FPS games have been released. Whether you’re still doing Overwatch, re-upped on the latest CoD, or have been hitting up Battlefield 1 or Titanfall 2, it’s only a matter of time until they all become obsolete in favor of the class of 2017. Here are some games you’ll want to keep an eye on…

10. Quake Champions

  • Publisher: Bethesda
  • Developers: id Software, Saber Interactive
  • Release date: 2017
  • Platform: PC

Here is id Software’s take on the hero-FPS, and the first release in the Quake series since 2010’s Quake Live, and the first main entry since Quake 4 in 2005. It’s always nice to see the people who set the bar trying to raise it even further. id laid the groundwork for the FPS genre, and now they’re coming back to show everyone who is still king, or at least that’s the plan.

Early game play from August shows a fast-paced, kill or be killed environment that you’d expect from Quake, but also incorporates some more modern game play elements. Between Quake Champions and the Unreal Tournament reboot that you can currently play for free in it’s Alpha stage, this is prime time for fans of classic PC shooters, as you’ll see later on in this list.

9. Dead Island 2

  • Publisher: Deep Silver
  • Developer: Sumo Digital
  • Release date: 2017
  • Platform: PC, PS4, Xbox One

The follow-up to 2011’s cult hit has been stuck in development-hell for a while, but there’s finally a light at the end of the tunnel (and the tunnel is completely packed with zombies, but there’s a red barrel nearby so you know what to do…)

Taking place in a new open world in LA, San Francisco, and an undisclosed location will be a big change up from a small island in Papua New Guinea. Fans can expect more of the b-movie antics from the first game, but to have everything dialed up to the next level.

8. Get Even

  • Publisher: Bandai Namco
  • Developer: The Farm 51
  • Release date: Spring 2017
  • Platform: PC, PS4, Xbox One

The Farm 51 is a studio from Poland who have been working on Get Even for years. Get Even is a psychological thriller with survival horror elements, from a first person perspective. Your character wakes up with nothing but a cell phone and a gun. Not a ton is known about this game yet, journalists had their hands on a playable version last summer and the general consensus was that it still needs some work, so let’s see how many finishing touches they were able to add in about a year.
