Storm Brewing at Starbreeze

The Games in Development section on the Starbreeze Website has a recently added listing for an unannounced co-op, science fiction FPS game called Storm. There is nothing there yet but an image and the following three lines: "Currently in development. Co-op Sci Fi FPS. It is our future." VG247 notes that that section does not have a listing for Cold Mercury, a "freemium" game announced early last year, so it's possible this is a new title for that project.

It's getting to the point where I couldn't care less about another Unreal Engine, flying a floating gun, first person shooter regardless of how well it's executed.
I thought player movement in Dishonored was pretty good

That's true, Dishonored did do that pretty well. It's funny how most games neglect that, yet in my view it's one of the most important aspects of a first person shooter.

Also it had no FOV slider, so it was absolutely unplayable.. but there you go...

I actually think Starbreeze has the best FPS engine currently going. Syndicate, despite it's overall conceptual and artistic flaws, did the gameplay details really well: Good sense of player movement, above average AI, the cover system worked really well, and the weapon handling and shooting was excellent.

Can't get to the starbreeze website at all. Is anyone else having problems? The rest of my internet seems fine.

Cool stuff. Co-op is awesome when done right (especially if you have a regular gaming group you play with) and I'm so glad it's had a resurgence in recent years!

I echo this sentiment - I love the hell out of co-op play and don't think it really deserves that bad of a rap. I'd rather play a game in a proper, storyline-driven co-op setting than competitive deathmatch.

That said, I do feel this should be balanced out by having a strong singleplayer setting to begin with. It's all about the storyline.

Coop FPS = The lazy way out if you don't want to code a proper AI ;p How is it that these crap games are still made. Someone gotta have to think "Oh gee, I dunno, maybe we should stop making crap games?" or something...

Because the crap games sell, for some reason, and so the publishers keep wanting crap games to be made.

Time for the publishers to die out. So far, they're doing well in that regard.

It'd be better if they made another Riddick game.

It would, and with another movie coming soon, it would be a great time.

Cross your fingers!

Starbreeze did the Syndicate 'remake', didn't they?

Fucking terrible game in SP. I wouldn't play another sci fi FPS SP by them, but apparently the co-op was pretty good, and this may be a co-op game?
