FPS games these days don’t really try to innovate too much in terms of game mechanics. There’s a formula for the shooter genre today and it works, but, why don’t we have shooters with some innovative mechanics? Well, at least Line of Sight is trying to improve and bring some new elements to the FPS genre, so let’s see what the game is all about!
Line of Sight is, according to the developers, best described as a combination of Bioshock and Call of Duty set in a multiplayer game.
Okay, now you’re probably wondering, what the hell does that even mean? In simple terms, you take the shooter mechanics of Call of Duty and then you add the special abilities from Bioshock and then you put all of that into one next-gen online FPS to get Line of Sight. The Psionics Abilities of the game are an interesting way to spice up the whole shooter genre, and the first batch of these special Abilities is just the start, so you can expect a lot more of them in the near future.
But, if you don’t really like the whole “special powers” thing, don’t worry, the developers got you covered with the “Classic Modes” in which you play the game without any abilities, just as you would in any traditional online FPS game. Whether you like to play competitively or casually, you can do both.
The game developers have a lot of exciting things coming in the near future, such as Innovative PvE modes, a Custom Map Editor, a Built-in professional tournament system, and the MyRoom ( a custom hideout).
The game is definitely looking like it’s going to be a fun FPS, so be sure to check it out if you’re a fan of shooter games.
