Despite Wolfenstein: The New Order’s valiant efforts it appears as if the single-player focused shooter is a dying breed. Taking a peek at the best that’s coming for 2015 reveals a heavy reliance on multiplayer antics, with a few campaign sprinkles along the way.

That’s no bad thing however, and first-person shooter fans are inevitably getting itching trigger fingers after what has been years of Battlefield and Call of Duty dominance. Luckily there’s a few other big-hitters set to arrive, and 2015 looks to be the year that the publishers try something a little different. Except you Activision, we know you’ve got a Call of Duty lurking in the wings ;)

Battlefield Hardline

By now it’s fair to say that modern warfare has been absolutely pummeled, stamped into the ground, and set ablaze. The Battlefield series has provided some quality titles, but we’re thankful that at long last EA is prepared to allow Visceral Games to try something a little different. The cops versus robbers theme might be pinching a few ideas from Payday, but the end product could hopefully take the Battlefield series to new heights.

Evolve

It’s safe to say that Evolve developer Turtle Rock Studios knows a thing or two about co-operative shooting. Both Left 4 Dead titles blew away anyone that laid their hands on them, and Evolve looks to be no different. Seemingly kickstarting a recent trend in asymmetric multiplayer, Evolve puts a team of four hunters against a giant player-controlled beast, which can level up and grow larger as a match progresses. The hunters must work together using their skillsets to bring the monster down.

Fortnite

A quick glance and you probably wouldn’t believe that the team behind Gears of War, Unreal, and Infinity Blade was creating this. It’s also bizarre that this is Epic’s showcase of its latest Unreal Engine 4. Still, peer beneath its simplistic exterior and what lurks inside could be one of the most revolutionary multiplayer titles we’ve seen in years. By day players must frantically construct gigantic fully-destructible forts, and by night they must fend off the impending hordes. One most definitely worth keeping an eye on.

Halo 5 Guardians

Everyone who’s picked up a copy of Halo: The Master Chief Collection gained an exclusive pass to play Halo 5’s multiplayer beta right now. Yep, right now, so if you’ve got a copy, hop on in and check it out until January 18th. Make the most of it though because the return of the Master Chief won’t be available until next holidays. What little we’ve seen suggests that 343 Industries plans to put the multiplayer front and centre, appealing to a core eSports audience.

Star Wars Battlefront

You see Battlefield Hardline at the top of this list? Well, like it or not, it’s going to be absolutely steamrollered by this when it comes out. Hardline’s delay now means it’ll come out just half a year before Star Wars Battlefront is expected, and DICE’s take on the revitalised Star Wars universe is sure to be absolutely huge. Timed to launch alongside the upcoming seventh movie, The Force Awakens, Star Wars: Battlefront is set to rework the Battlefield formula on an interstellar scale. Expect all your favourite battles to crop up, including Hoth, Endor, the Death Star and more, in what promises to be the definitive Star Wars multiplayer experience.

That's some of our most anticipated shooters coming in 2015, what's yours?

Which is your most anticipated shooter of 2015?

I hope EA wont have SW be like battlefield 3 and 4 where it brings you to a website to play the game. Its not that its awful I just want to play the game on singleplayer without having to open up a website to play singleplayer.

Because Halo has run it's course just like CoD. Many people like myself loved the first few games of each franchise & then started hating that all the focus has been swapped to multi player in the later games.

There are so many other titles you could have put instead of that Hardline DLC. I don't personally know or met any Battlefield fan who intends to get it, or even likes the idea.
Give me Battlefront, and give me Evolve. I'll be happy.
