Do FPS Games Still Need A Campaign?

Do FPS Games Still Need A Campaign?
This time, I've returned from a trip to Devon having spent too much time ignoring my friends and playing Hollow Knight instead. But what about FPSes? Well, I didn't play any of those. Thankfully Imogen has all of us covered on this week's episode of the Ultimate Audio Bang, with a news segment rammed with lots of exciting announcements. Namely, Apex Legends gets a new Legend and map, Halo Infinite sees a new trailer, and Call Of Duty's new anti-cheat Ricochet leaks early. I arrive at this episode of the Ultimate Audio Bang thoroughly shootered. Both big FPS releases of the month, Call Of Duty: Vanguard and Battlefield 2042 have been at my fingertips this week and I've got some thoughts. Of course, Imogen hits us with news too. Valorant has another new character coming out, Fortnite pulls Travis Scott, and Imogen gives us the lowdown on just how much she's enjoying Apex Legends' latest season. This week's theme is Call Of Duty: Vanguard flavoured, namely thanks to the campaign mode I reviewed early in the week. We question whether FPS games with a strong multiplayer focus need story modes anymore. What do you reckon? And to round things off, I look at a random site with suggested CoD names under different categories: funny, cool, and clan. Turns out they all don't quite fit into any of their categories and are, in fact, a bit naff. 🌐 Check out our lovely website: https://www.rockpapershotgun.com  🐦 Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/rockpapershot / https://twitter.com/FromEdward / https://twitter.com/immybeck 💬 Join the RPS Discord: https://discord.gg/rockpapershotgun 🛒 Buy some RPS merch: https://store.reedpop.com/collections/rock-paper-shotgun  Learn more about your ad choices.

Pursuing Our Destiny

Pursuing Our Destiny
On this week's episode of Ultimate Audio Bang, Imogen shares some juicy news nuggets with us. Splitgate â€“ a Halo meets Portal FPS – seems to have garnered some serious interest. Naturally, both haven't played it. Sounds cool, though. Elsewhere Halo Infinite's doing a thing this weekend, which they also aren't playing. To be fair, they're waiting for John Masterchief's invite. And just to round things off, Apex Legends has a new character, while PUBG might be going free-to-play. It's a stacked one, folks.   For the theme, they decide to throw it back to the games that got them started in online shooters. This quickly transforms into a chat about the good old Destiny days. For Imogen, it was her first game, and for Ed, it was his second. Ed dreads to think what it's like now, though, and how much he's missed.   It was also Imogen's turn to surprise him with three weird and wonderful player names, and this week doesn't disappoint. The gang chat France and Kung Fu Panda, both of which are excellent.   🌐 Check out our lovely website: https://www.rockpapershotgun.com    🐦 Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/rockpapershot / https://twitter.com/FromEdward / https://twitter.com/immybeck   💬 Join the RPS Discord: https://discord.gg/rockpapershotgun   🛒 Buy some RPS merch: https://store.reedpop.com/collections/rock-paper-shotgun  Learn more about your ad choices.
