Games To Watch 2024 – FPS

Games To Watch 2024 - FPS

It’s time again to peer into the future, all so I can highlight games that I think are worth watching. It is worth noting two things, the first is that this list is for announced games only and the second is due to the nature of classifying genres these days, I have placed the games where I feel they fit best so don’t shoot me if your most anticipated game isn’t here, it may be in another list. With that in mind, let’s get to the games. First up, we dive into the first-person perspective. 

When we say a game has been in development hell, we usually mean that there have been organisational problems that have caused the game to be delayed over and over again. But when I say S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2 has been in development hell, I mean it in the most literal sense. 

The developers, GSC Game World, have been building the game in bunkers, bomb shelters and safe houses during the current Russian invasion of Ukraine. To say that must be tough is the understatement of the century. 

Despite all that, the game is looking fantastic and is almost certain to be a dark, depressing and engaging post-apocalyptic adventure that fans of the original and games like Metro should absolutely be excited for.

I have to admit, at first, I was very very sceptical about xDefiant. The idea of smashing a bunch of Ubisoft properties into a competitive FPS made me cringe and the less said about the capitalisation of that actual name the better. But, thanks to my time with the game during the various beta periods, I have done a complete 180 and am now quite excited about how xDefiant is shaping up (still hate the name though.)

My original fear was that xDefiant would be some sort of Overwatch clone but in actual fact, it is much closer to classic Call of Duty, superficially Black Ops, in nature. It carries that same satisfying gameplay loop that (in my mind at least) BLOPS nailed so many years ago. There are some concerns, namely how the F2P model will work upon release and the beta highlighted some balance problems, but in all this is shaping up to be a throwback to a time when online shooters were a bit simpler, a bit cleaner and frankly I am all for it. 

Anger Foot

How does one describe something like Anger Foot? I think the easiest way is to simply say that it is a game that could only be published by Devolver Digital. 

From the footage it feels like Anger Foot takes Hotline Miami, puts it in the first-person perspective and adds a whole bunch of insanity and humour to the mix. There is a real riot of colour and action that promises to be unlike anything else on the market. 

The question I have is how will the concept hold up over a whole game? Will it be a short-lived novelty or something that becomes a cult classic? I can see it going either way if I am honest. Hopefully, it nails the insane premise when the game comes out later this year. 

Destiny 2: The Final Shape

Destiny 2 feels like it is standing on the edge. The lustre has worn off Bungie’s once unstoppable juggernaut and even the most die-hard players are struggling to stay engaged with the game on a regular basis.

This means that The Final Shape, the story finale that the game has been working towards for years, has a lot resting on its shoulders. But Bungie has had their backs against the wall before and has come out on top so I am quietly confident that The Final Shape can deliver on what fans are looking for and hopefully bring some lapsed players (including myself) back into the fold.

Hopefully, Bungie nails it this time around. For everyone’s sake. 


This, of all the games on this list, is the most mysterious. The first game from famed developer Ken Levine since Bioshock Infinite, it has some high expectations on its shoulders simply due to his name. After all his track record speaks for itself.

But what is Judas about? Well not much is known. A few screens and the intro trailer certainly show a Bioshock-type experience but apart from that who knows?

I for one am extremely excited about this game because it has the most potential, but I worry that now Ken has struck out on his own, without the backing of 2K he may run into resource issues and have to cut back or compromise his vision due to the mighty dollar. Fingers crossed this isn’t the case.
