Days of War is an Unreal Engine 4-powered online first person military shooter that harkens back to the grittier and simpler era of the WWII FPS.
With Call of Duty and Battlefield intent on pushing ever forwards in time, piling on more outlandish gadgets, drones and increasingly ridiculous weaponry, the glory days of the classic World War II shooter has long since been forgotten. It’s understandable, as WWII shooters reached saturation point a few years ago, but enough time has passed now that there’s now a genuine demand for a high quality, skill based WWII shooter. Thankfully developers, DrivenArts have spotted this gap in the market and after a successful Kickstarter campaign are gearing up for release of Days of War.
Days of War is keen to distance itself from the increasingly hyperactive, gadget-laden and OTT Call of Duty series, with a mission statement that ‘bullets are what matter, not kill-streaks, not wall jumps, and certainly not drone strikes ordered from iPads.’ This is an old school WWII millitary shooter where gameplay trumps gimicks, and teamwork and skill are the only way to prosper. After the glut of WWII shooters in the late 2000’s, we never though we’d say this, but – welcome back WWII, we missed you!
