While I personally am more than a little tired of modern trends in first person shooters, there seems to be a pool of millions of people who can’t get enough of ’em. If you’re looking for another modern military themed first person shooter, you’re going to be in for a treat on March 17th when Gameloft’s Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Shadow Vanguard hits the App Store.
There have been a ton of games based on the Tom Clancy universe released in the past 13 years since the launch of the initial Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six. Rainbow Six games are typically squad based, and take place in tight urban environments. Shadow Vanguard seems to fit right in line with that per the above trailer, and boasts a few cool features. You’ll be able to play the 11 included missions online in a co-op mode with 3 players, and there’s even 10 player multiplayer.
Judging by the trailer, this isn’t one of the upcoming Unreal Engine games we’ve heard about, but it’s hard to not get excited about online co-op in a first person shooter running on a phone. That feels like the future.
