Two new first person survival games to keep you sharp and tactical
A survival horror, set in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger, this one looks eerie but exciting. Set fifteen years after the events of Alien, Ellen Ripley’s daughter, Amanda enters a desperate battle for survival, on a mission to unravel the truth behind her mother’s disappearance. You play Amanda and have to navigate through an increasingly volatile world. The atmosphere keeps changing and aliens are more unpredictable than you can imagine. We love that the game doesn’t follow a half-baked plot but builds as you play, thanks to artificial intelligence senses that allow gameplay to be based on the gamer’s psyche. So luckily no computerised movement of the enemies either! Largely underpowered and under prepared because you are really defenseless save for a flame thrower, scavenging for ammunition is also part of the plan apart from succeeding to stay alive! Releases on October 7 for PC, PS3, Xbox360, PS4, and Xbox One.
From the creators of Halo and the publisher of Call of Duty comes Destiny. With an unprecedented variety of FPS gameplay, it delivers an incredible story set within a newly-imagined, always-connected universe. You are a Guardian charged with saving the last city on Earth with the option of personalising your look and you can pick your combination of armor, weapons. As you pass quests you gain power and get hold of rare and exotic gear. Strike raids are very hard though and this may discourage some players from carrying on. While it is a great shooting game, it does get repetitive if you are playing alone as the enemy spawns at the exact same location every time you re-play the game. On PS4 and Xbox One
