War games have long been some of the most popular and enjoyable games on the market. Fighting to win a battle and help your pixelated brothers in arms is a thrilling way to play and never gets tiring. But with so many being released each year, which ones are worth playing?
2018 has been a great year for video games on all consoles from PC to Xbox and PlayStation. If you’re looking to play some of the best war games on the market, read on for our top four of this year.
1. Company of Heroes 2
Set in the Eastern front of World War II, Company of Heroes 2 is a war game where you control a Soviet army against the advancing Germans. In this strategy game, you must lead an army and bring soldiers into battle to help you win. The gameplay is strong and it has an easy to navigate interface, but the multiplayer feature is where it truly shines. You can control up to 135 soldiers as they make their way into battle against other online players.
The graphics aren’t amazing and the single player game isn’t the best around, but for a strategic multiplayer you’ll keep coming back to, Company of Heroes 2 is one to consider.
2. Soldiers Inc.
Another game which will immerse you in the experience is Soldiers Inc. This game allows you to build, train and control an army of powerful soldiers to fight around the world. It’s set in modern times rather than WWII and the graphics for this one are stunning.
The fun is endless as you plan to defeat your enemies by planning strategies, conduct diplomacies, consider logistics and develop your war strategy. Team up with other commanding officers for joint-operation battles for the best chances of winning and claiming territories.
It’s a game you’ll keep coming back to again and again and you’ll love seeing how much better you get each time.
3. Call of Duty WWII
When it comes to soldier-based war games, it doesn’t get more classic than Call of Duty. Earlier this year, they released Call of Duty WWII which quickly became immensely popular. Across the board, it’s a great game to play. It has a great single player campaign, the multiplayer is fantastic, and it has an even more intense Nazi Zombies feature.
Most people who play Call of Duty go straight to the multiplayer. But this has a great single player campaign that shouldn’t be ignored. Play through pivotal moments in history such as D-Day and get to know the soldiers better.
Unlike the previous Call of Duty games, you don’t have the flashy extras like a HUD or Exosuits, but it adds to the realism of the game and it is still very enjoyable to play.
4. Battlefield 5
While the full version of Battlefield 5 isn’t available, it’s one of the most highly anticipated games of 2018. The 2016 release of Battlefield 1 saw huge levels of success and fans have waited with baited breath ever since.
It’s set in WWII and players can play single and multiplayer missions. There will be a Battle Royale mode called Firestorm where players will have to fight till only one is left standing. It’s due to be released in October this year and we can’t wait to start playing.
War games are some of the best video games out there. If you’re looking for a new one to sink your teeth into, these are guaranteed to keep you entertained for hours.
