if you have been waiting for a good tactical shooter to come out, either to replace Tom Clancy's games, SWAT 4, or other tactical game you may play, these games are for you. I think i may have seen them mentioned somewhere else in the forum, but i searched and didn't found anything, so i created this topic. I have known this games for a while, and while i believe most of you know about them, i still want to spread the word about them.
Title: GROUND BRANCH
So, this one is the one on which i would bet to make it, although its kickstarter has recently failed, the devs are really commited to it, they have been developing the game in their free time, and it has a large community backing it up. Its kind of a mix between Ghost Recon and Rainbow Six, since the player will be in control of a black ops unit. They already have pre-alpha builds, and i think it could be the "Call of Duty" of tactical shooters, if the next kickstarter they make is sucessfull.
Here's the trailer (not really a trailer, more of a teaser, or promotional trailer like they say):
SideStrafe, a well known youtuber (he plays tactical games) has done a video about it:
Ground Branch Kickstarter - SideStrafe
Here a demo with Dev Commentary:
And finally, a weapon customization example:
This one was out before Ground Branch, and has already been funded (they only recently began working with the engine), and i believe (and hope) they will make it too, although they havent reached pre-alpha yet. It's gameplay will be similar to rainbow six counter terrorism style, but with PMC's instead of government affiliated units.
Here is the promotional\informative initial video (no gameplay)
Both these games will be awesome!!
Support them and spread the word!!
Looks good, it reminds me of Six Vegas 2
Documented many times on these forums, and several posts on their forums from members of SAS

Yep. We are aware, and most of us excited to see them
Waiting since years that GB gets finally released...

Track'em, find'em, kill'em!"
Looks fantastic! Love to see it in Sas
Would not want to see all this stuff for premium players only.
I ready for pre-to-play, don't want "free-to-play" (pay-pay-pay for playing with all stuff). ).
[ATTENTION SPLINTER CELL FANS!!!]
For the ones who loved the Spies vs Mercs gamemode of splinter cell chaos theory \ pandora tomorrow, theres a new indie game for you: Project Stealth
Its seems pretty cool, but although the devs claim the game development is in a mid\final stage, i have been following this game for almost a year, and i havent seen major evolution. Still, a good game to look forward to!
Speaking of Splinter Cell... it looks like Blacklist is going to return to more of the Chaos Theory SC formula we all know and love. Cannot wait!!

Yep, Blacklist could be a freakin kickass game, with a more action oriented gameplay then previous Splinter cell games, but it could still be good, if it were't for 3 things:
-That freakin ridiculous "press a button and kill 5 guys at a time" feature!!
-Airstrikes (in a splinter cell game?? are you serious??)
-Absence of Michael Ironside (I think we all agree that michael ironside IS sam fisher)
Apart from that it has all the ingredients to be a good game! (that scene when fisher pulls the grenade pin from the unaware guard is awesome!!)
Looking forward to it!!
