A hundred players are transported onto an island with almost nothing in their inventory. The player is tasked with finding or looting weapons, traps, and other pieces of gear. The game offers the players much leeway - one can run around and shoot as much as they like, nonetheless, one can also assume the stealthy approach, hide in an appropriate spot and eliminate the foes with a sniper rifle. Additionally, one can acquire more resources from buildings, trees, etc. and use them to construct numerous objects such as stairs, covers, and bridges. The only objective the player is tasked with is staying alive until the end of a match. This task is even more difficult due to the fact that the battlefield shrinks continuously. The game is based on Unreal Engine technology, also used in the production processes of such games as Final Fantasy VII Remake and Tekken 7.

Once again we play as Artyom who ventures through what remains of Russia after a nuclear war that took place twenty years before the action of the game. Metro Exodus is kind of an evolution of what we saw in the series' previous installments. As usual, we explore the game's rich world (this time, along with the tunnels, also the world’s surface), fight with the encountered enemies, and try to be as stealthy as possible. Stealth plays an important role in the game because we will encounter not only well-armed human survivors, but also mutants. Defeating a smaller one may not be that hard, but the more powerful mutants can be rather difficult to kill. As usual, the latest installment of the Metro series features visuals of the highest quality.

In Destiny 2, we will visit completely new, enormous locations (i.e. Saturn alone will be bigger than the entire first game), finding new, vibrant metropolises. In the wilderness, we will find both enemies and enemy checkpoints that are just waiting to be taken over by us. Planets known from the first Destiny will also be present in the sequel, but will be added on a later date. Due to the new technology used by Destiny 2, it won't be possible to import our characters from the original game. Transferring any sort of content from the first Destiny will probably turn out to be problematic.

Action December 2019
A fan modification of the classic first-person shooter Half-Life from 1998; the mod's development took roughly 8 years to complete. In terms of plot, the production is a faithful recreation of the original game and tells the story of Gordon Freeman, a physicist, and his struggle for survival in the titular Black Mesa Research Facility invaded by mysterious beings from another dimension. The implemented changes relate primarily to the audio-visual aspects, which were developed entirely from scratch, using the original locations, 3D models, and sound effects as a model. The game is powered by the popular Source engine, which created for the cult Half-Life 2, enabling it – in comparison with the original GoldSrc engine – to fully employ the capabilities of modern graphics cards and multi-core processors. This allows us to enjoy high-quality visuals, improved physics and character animations, and a host of advanced visual effects. An entirely new soundtrack, composed by Joel Nielsen, was also made for the game.

Most missions take place in confined spaces, which – thanks to an advanced physics engine – can be completely destroyed. During combat, the two teams can shoot through or blow up walls, floors, and ceilings, as well as barricaded doors. Because of this, the situation on the battlefield changes dynamically, forcing the players to adjust their tactics and cooperate with teammates.

An online shooter with elements of survival, focusing on a Battle Royale type of competition (the last man standing wins). Playerunkown’s Battlegrounds is a game from the developers of TERA MMO and the creator of Battle Royale mods for Arma II and Arma III. The rules of the game are simple: a large number of players are put together in a big closed location with only one mission – to eliminate everyone else. A game ends when there is only one player left alive. Participants start off completely unarmed, so the first phase is basically a race for the best weapon. Players can make use of various kinds of traps, and the game offers much freedom when it comes to choosing the methods of eliminating enemies. An extra help for that comes from a simple crafting system, which lets you construct items from gathered resources. Playerunkown’s Battlegrounds’ fast-paced gameplay is further increased by the fact that the map is gradually getting smaller, making confrontations between players more frequent.
Action 12 September 2013
The third installment in the first-person shooter cycle that focuses heavily on faithful recreation of the modern battlefield.

A small island in the middle of the Mediterranean is of key importance to the stability of this part of the world, and it is there that the events of the story-driven single player campaign take place. The production of the Czech studio - Bohemia Interactive – stands out due to the extremely thorough and realistic re-enactments of operations of actual military assets, including a variety of vehicles. A well-developed mode for online multiplayer skirmishes is one of the game’s greatest strengths. Arma III features high-quality graphics generated by the Real Virtuality engine, as well as a set of fully functional modding tools, allowing you to create your own scenarios.
