We decided to select such war games, where the conflict is not just used as a convenient basis for the plot, but is viewed as a serious topic that deserves careful study. In some of them, historical catastrophes are recreated in the smallest, but living details , in others there are wizards and fantastic creatures, but all of them in one degree or another try to convey the burden and hardships of wartime.
The games in this list belong to the most diverse genres, there is everything here, from indie adventures to global strategies , not to mention a decent amount of shooters. In addition, we will try to regularly update this list so that it always contains the best games about the war.
SUDDEN STRIKE 4
The fourth part of the famous franchise pleasantly surprised players improved graphics, huge battlefields, used to lshim number of units, new scenarios and the legendary team. It was originally planned to restart the entire series, but then it was decided to release the full new part of Sudden Strike.
The player is available for three long campaigns, during which you will have to visit various theaters of military operations of the Second World War . Regardless of the faction chosen, the player will receive more than a hundred different units under his control and the opportunity to get one of the famous commanders such as Zhukov, Patton or Guderian.
Verdun is a first-person shooter in the scenery of the First World War . Players will have to fight in trenches with authentic weapons. The gameplay is harsh and merciless, the developers were able to reliably reflect the realities of the Western Front of 1914-1918.
As the game tries to be as realistic as possible, you can play it with your friends by joining platoons. Hiding from enemy bullets in the muddy trenches tightened with powder smoke, players will have to fight the fear of death and the enemy’s attacking army.
Call of Duty: WWII
The franchise recently turned fifteen, but in recent years it has turned more often to the present or the future. However, last year appeared Call of Duty: WWII, with which the series, like Battlefield, again went to the past.
As the name implies, the setting for this game was World War II, and here it really feels darker and tougher than ever in computer games. The plot revolves around the 1st Infantry Division on the Western Front.
A curious detail of this game was the lack of health regeneration, which has long become the norm for the entire Call of Duty franchise. Nevertheless, the developers decided that in this story about the most terrible and brutal war, such mechanics would be superfluous, breaking the immersion. So you have to hide in the old fashioned way in shelters and look for first-aid kits. Multiplayer still plays a huge role for all games in the series, and this part is no exception. A lot of different modes, both competitive and joint, like the ” Zombies “, will get bored very soon.
In the strange and mysterious world of For Honor, there is a long epic war between medieval knights, samurai and vikings . The genre of the game can be defined as something between a fighting game and hack’n’slash , while still multiplayer.
The game is not the best way to start, but over the past time has acquired high-quality updates and an army of loyal fans. Bringing a couple of friends with you, you can have a good time in the local PvP modes: fights, slaughter, seizure of territories and even duels.
Wolfenstein: The New Order / the new colossus
The New Order was a reboot of the Wolfenstein cult franchise, but this time the player found himself in an alternate universe, where the Nazis won the war. In the center of the plot again, BJ Blazkowicz, a soldier who once was on the verge of death, but escaped and joined the Resistance, hoping to overthrow the Reich and return peace to his country.
The New Colossus – a direct continuation of the first part. The fascists still rule the world, and the Resistance in America is organizing the Second American Revolution against the hated regime.
Both games are on the PC and definitely deserve your attention, unless you harbor prejudices against first-person shooters. However, please note that there is no multiplayer mode in them, the developers instead decided to concentrate their forces on a strong single-player campaign.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4
It seems that soon the year will come when we will not see the new CoD. This fall, we saw a new part of the Black Ops line, however, devoid of something important.
I think everyone already knows that in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 there is no single-player campaign, an indispensable attraction of every franchise game. In our age of popularity of the royal battle genre , the Treyarch studio decided to bet on it and completely abandon the campaign, investing all its strength in multiplayer. Which, of course, had a positive effect on the latter.
In the end, if you are a fan of CoD or Zombie multiplayer battles, then you have nothing to worry about, everything is fine with Black Ops 4. However, if you bought franchise games for adrenaline and spectacular campaigns, then perhaps this time it is better to refrain and wait for the autumn of next year.
Extreme (we will not say “last”, because Star Wars is still waiting for us) for today, the game of the studio Respawn Entertainment, the sequel to their own game Titanfall. Players received not only the familiar part and improved multiplayer, but also a full-fledged single-player campaign. By the way, received high marks from gamers.
the campaign, protagonist Jack Cooper, the militia fighter, gets his Titan after the former BT-7274 pilot died in battle. Now Jack has a long return to his out of the enemy rear. Despite the age of the game, there are still enough players on its servers to ensure a merry and dynamic fight with the participation of giant robots and vulnerable, but very fast pilots.
