Interstellar Marines used to be one of the most promising first-person shooters which sadly died due to a lack of funding. It's limping along, with a new video to show off a new enemy.

The enemy is a Recon Drone, which will come with Update 28, take a look:

More about the Drone:

Introducing the Recon Drone, which will be introduced in Update 28 in both Cooperative and Wargames as a new enemy. The Recon Drone will have various abilities, including being able to call in reinforcements to your general location in the form of CTRs as well as being armed with mounted weapons.

Looks and sounds like it could certainly spice things up a bit! I haven't seen them post yet when Update 28 will be out, will keep you posted.

Honestly, I still think Interstellar Marines is more interesting than a lot of FPS titles coming out even recently, it has such a fantastic atmosphere and the game mechanics are pretty solid. I really do hope it sees a resurgence in 2019. Every time I jump in and manage to get a game online, I always have a good time.

Find Interstellar Marines on Humble Store and Steam.

I've played before, but my account was reset i don't knw why.

So, now heading to rank 40 (out of 100), with about 7-8 hours of gameplay.

I'm having a lot of fun, even if mainly solo but from time to time i meet a lost player to play with, coop in Wargame.

Also, challenges are... challenging. Or i'm bad.

I've missed playing a slow paced FPS, most of them nowadays are for clickers.

And unlike most FPS, ammo management really is important. Depending upon the mode, you don't have much, and you run out fast, meaning every shot has to count...

New record since i (re)play the game (Q4 2018) : 12 players online. I even got shot by another real player, not a bot. That's something, right ?
