Since we informed you about inXile’s Kickstarter, we also felt the need to let you know about a Kickstarter that passed under the radar of pretty much everyone. Christian Allen, the man behind Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter (that has also worked on Halo: Reach) created a Kickstarter for a new tactical shooter.
Christian believes that real tactical shooters aren’t dead, and that enough people want one to justify the cost of development. And although we agree with him and we’d love to see a new tactical game, its campaign hasn’t managed to get the public’s attention yet.
According to Christian, this game will get back to the core of what is loved about the tac-shooter, featuring realistic weapon modeling, outfitting and commanding your squad, objective-based, non-linear missions set in real-world locations around the world, single player, co-op, and multiplayer.
This project will only be funded if at least $200,000 is pledged by Sunday Apr 1st and is currently at $44,352. The game will be powered by either Unity or CryEngine 3. Platform is primarily PC, and there is a chance for a console port if there is demand.
John is the founder and Editor in Chief at DSOGaming. He is a PC gaming fan and highly supports the modding and indie communities. Before creating DSOGaming, John worked on numerous gaming websites. While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the "The Evolution of PC graphics cards."
