#5 Medal of Honor: Warfighter:
The Medal of Honor series, one of the longest-running IPs in the shooter genre, experienced a reboot back in 2010. It paid off for EA and developer Danger Close with the shooter selling over five million units. Naturally, a sequel came into fruition in the form of Medal of Honor: Warfighter.
Powered by the DICE’s brilliant Frostbite 2 engine, which showcased the qualities of Battlefield 3, the sequel is undoubtedly due to deliver commendable gameplay, as well as achieving the same graphical fidelity Battlefield 3 delivered. We’ll see if the title has what it takes to commercially challenge Call of Duty come October 23rd.
#4 – Far Cry 3:

Players will take the role as lead protagonist Jason Brody who manages to find himself situated in an isolated island that’s littered with deadly enemies. Losing his girlfriend on his journey, he has to fight in order to stay alive in order to find her. Standing in his way are maniacs such as Vaas, a Mohawk-carrying who’s best at killing lives in a lethal fashion.
#3 – Call of Duty: Black Ops 2:
Say what you want about Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, but developer Treyarch has clearly signalled its intentions to implement fresh ideas into the sequel.
Two connected storylines are included in the shooter, with one set in the 1970s through till the 1980s and the other in 2025. The futuristic campaign, in particular, seems to be the most intriguing and we can’t wait to see how the changes made in the single-player complement the hopefully worthwhile changes incorporated into the multiplayer component.
