Finding a New Multiplayer FPS

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for a new multiplayer FPS that isn't revolved around pure deathmatch or the ever exciting "TEAM" deathmatch. rolleyes.gif I know that pretty much eliminates almost all of the free FPS and CoD, which constitutes for about 80% of the results I find. I have tried Planetside 2, but none of my friends want to play and the gameplay simply doesn't feel right, to me, in an indescribable way. I am aware of Team Fortress 2, but I have been VAC banned for "cheating" and therefore eliminating that possibility. As for Battlefield 3, I'm afraid that Battlefield 4 would come out right around the corner and make me feel like I wasted money on a dying game.

As far as game traits are concerned, I'm looking for: teamwork being required to win, but not necessary to have fun, a fairly populated game, not pay-to-win (if it has a cash shop), and has tolerable graphics. Might be asking for a lot, which is why I'm having a hard time searching for any game, but I thought I'd ask the OCN community for help finish my search. I'd appreciate any help, sooner the better of course, as I'm incredibly bored at the moment.

TL;DR
Teamwork is required to win
Fairly populated
Can't be VAC protected
Not pure deathmatch
Tolerable graphics
Not pay-to-win

Thanks in advance.

GRO or ARMA

GRO is more deathmatchy but teamwork IS required
ARMA is a mil sim. not really a FPS

GRO as in Ghost Recon Online?

As for ARMA, holy cow... That level of teamwork is... let's just say, I don't have that amount of coordination to play that kind of game. smile.gif

I suggest trying Planetside 2 again, we have an official thread that keeps up to date on the newest updates and discussions. You said your friends don't play it, but I highly recommend jumping in and getting your feet wet, once you think you're ready, join an outfit (guild) the lard scale battles are some of the funnest things I've ever encountered in my gaming career, especially in big battles with over 300 guys trying to take a hex.. Very much worth checking out again.

Disregard this if it is vac and/or pay to win.

Last night I played Natural Selection 2 for PC, free from steam for a day, all I can say is WOW, just amazing game. No hiccups, fps is fabulous, graphics look amazing and you get a console! Console as in like a console in cod4 where you can maxfps cmd etc. Team work to win, overall, I was very shocked on how great it was.

Edit:
Planetside 2 looks crazy. Need an IQ of 2000 to play it, looks like.

You should try out Blacklight: Retribution. It's free on Steam. Nice community, very nice graphics.

Some game modes:
S&D
CTF
OS
TDM
DM
LTS
Siege
DOM
KOTH

Just an amazing game, come on and try it out! Definitely not pay to win, because you can use everything without paying.
