Playerunknown's Battlegrounds is currently smashing it on Steam. Right now, it's the best selling game on the platform and one of the most viewed games on Twitch - not bad for a game that's only been in Early Access for less than a week.
Battlegrounds is one of the latest games in the popular Battle Royale genre - inspired by the classic film from director Kinji Fukasaku - but this one comes with a bit of a pedigree; its creator Brendan Greene, a.k.a Player Unknown, was the brains behind the original Battle Royale mods for Arma 2 and Arma 3.
Playerunknown's Battlegrounds is a competitive survival last man standing shooter. Up to 100 Players are dropped into a fully open 8x8km island, where they must fight each other until only one player/team remains alive. Players begin the match without any items, but can search to find weapons, vehicles, and gear. In order to speed up the match, the battlefield will begin to shrink, forcing players to encounter other hostile players while trying to stay within the shrinking safe area. Apart from solo matches, the game also allows for cooperative play for players to team up into groups of 2 or 4, which is it's own separate mode.

The only aim in Rust is to survive. To do this you will need to overcome struggles such as hunger, thirst and cold. Build a fire. Build a shelter. Kill animals for meat. Protect yourself from other players, and kill them for meat. Create alliances with other players and form a town. Whatever it takes to survive.
The creators of Insurgency present the next installment of their successful FPS platform with Day of Infamy. Featuring tactical close-quarters WWII combat across a wide range of multiplayer and coop scenarios, Day of Infamy is a highly intense teamwork-rewarding experience.
Quake Champions is a PC-exclusive, multiplayer-only game, described as a "competitive arena-style, character-based shooter." The game will be based on the gameplay of Quake III and Quake Live, while taking inspiration from the original Quake for its visual design. The selectable characters (referred to as "champions") all have passive abilities (e.g. extra speed), but the core style of gameplay remains the same. These abilities are based on a rock-paper-scissors system, where certain abilities have natural counters. It is up to players to discover which champions work best together. Over a dozen champions are expected to be playable when the beta launches.
Star Wars Battlefront II will give players a totally new Star Wars experience. And, this time, it’s going to count. In Battlefront II, out November 17, there will be a single player campaign. It’ll give you the ability to play as Iden Versio, played by Janina Gavankar, a special forces Imperial soldier who vows revenge on the Rebel Alliance after seeing Death Star II get blown up from the surface of Endor. The character wholly believes in the Empire and, for players, it’ll be a focus they are not used to: the eradication of the Rebellion.
Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, the follow up to Rising Storm and the Red Orchestra series of realism-focused multiplayer FPSs, is mostly the tension part of a war movie. It’s a lot of slow, creeping movement, a lot of thinking about your positioning and the enemy’s positioning, and then a burst of action—automatic rifles and explosions and the part where a bunch of extras die. (You're the extra).
New Legends will rise on September 8th 2017. Destiny 2 will be on PC.
Thus begins the conversation about our next adventure together. There will be so much more to say before we reunite the Guardians to reclaim their city from the most dreaded threat it has ever faced. Fortunately, we’ll have all summer long to dive into the details. This is a new beginning for every player. We know you have questions about the worlds you’ll explore, the enemies you’ll fight, the powers you’ll master, and (as Cayde promised) the loot you’ll earn. All will be answered in the weeks and months to come. It should be a hell of a ride.
