Will Battalion 1944 Be 2018’s Stand Out FPS?
While here at Mods “R” Us, we are having a blast with Call Of Duty WWII, Destiny 2 and even dabbling in a little Battlefront 2. We have an eye on next year and so far not a ton of first person shooters have been announced, but one we have kept a very close eye on is Battalion 1944.
If the name sounds familiar, it is because it was a highly publicized Kickstarter game, do not freak out or worry, it was funded in just a few days. While this is a new company making the game, the majority of the team have worked on AAA titles in the past.
What we know so far about Battalion 1944 is that it is going to be an online game that focusses on 5 vs 5 matches. The team wants to keep this as old school as possible so from what they have said it seems like there is no cheating, pay to win or anything like that. The term they use is “raw skill” and that sounds very interesting to us. It sounds rather bare bones at the moment, but we think that is part of the appeal of this game. It is stripping away much of the garbage that has been added to first person shooters over the last decade and is going for something that is more simple, straightforward and fun.
Early access for Battalion 1944 is coming in early 2018 and the game is going to be available for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It is well worth keeping a closer eye on if you love old school first person shooters.

What New Game Modes Be In Call Of Duty 2018?
Ok, so we are all still having a blast with Call Of Duty WWII and we still have multiple DLC packs to play with, but that does not stop me from looking to the future and wondering what Treyarch has in store for us this year.
Call Of Duty WWII did so many things right. It had a fantastic single player campaign, Nazi Zombies is awesome and War Mode is one of the best new additions to Call Of Duty in years! It got me thinking, War Mode was so much fun and Nazi Zombies with its horror theme was such a fresh approach, what could Treyarch do in order to make Call Of Duty 2018 really wow us?
As much as I want another zombies mode, maybe they could change it up a bit. I know that we have had Aliens in the past in Call Of Duty Ghosts, but I think this could work really well again. Maybe have it set on a space station or during an alien invasion? I think if done right putting us against aliens could be every bit as fun as zombies.
Another fun idea for a side mode in Call Of Duty 2018 is monsters! We have taken down hordes of the undead, but what about if we now have to take down a series of monsters ranging from vampires, werewolves, gargoyles and so much more. It sounds nuts but done in the right way, I feel this could be a lot of fun. Especially if you had to have certain weapons to defeat certain enemies silver bullets for werewolves and steaks for vampires for example.
I would love to know what side modes you would like to see added to Call Of Duty 2018 in the comments section.
The Call Of Duty WW2 Resistance Event
Today I wanted to break down the essential information about what you can expect in the Call Of Duty WW2 Resistance Event and all the DLC goodness that is coming as a result of it.
The Resistance Features
The Resistance event is running from the 23rd of January and will last until the 27th of February. Included with this is a free Resistance loot box each week, double XP playlists and Some new weapons such as the Orso Submachine Gun, the Volkssturmgewehr Assault Rifle and in the trailer, if you look closely enough, you can see a new knife and some kind of pistol as well.
New Game Modes
We have already talked about this, but as part of the Resistance event, two game modes will be added to Call Of Duty. Prop Hunt, which we have gone into detail about before. As well as this though is the return of Demolition mode which is a little bit like Search and Destroy. Hopefully, these modes will stick around after the event, but it sounds like once the event is over these modes will be gone, so enjoy them while you can.
The Resistance Division that is being added to Call Of Duty WW2 sounds very interesting. I will be honest and say I do not think that I will be very good at using, but it sounds a lot of fun. The idea is that you dual wield a knife and a pistol so it is a run and gun, up close and personal kind of class. They also have a special ability that allows them to mess with the opposing team’s maps and they even get a special minimap which sounds like it will come in handy. The Call Of Duty WW2 Resistance event sounds like it is going to be a blast and I plan on spending a lot of time with it, make sure you do too as these events come and go really fast!
