Best Steam FPS Fest Games to Buy

DOOM Eternal and DOOM (-60% and  -80% Off)

DOOM Eternal has one of the best single-player shooter experiences I’ve played in a while. The constant lively, mechanically-satisfying, hell-tearing action is unparalleled in its genre. Both Eternal and the prequel are available at a hefty discount, so if you haven’t already, do yourself a favor and start blasting demons. Both games introduce a level of mobility and FPS creativity when fighting enemies with plenty of weapon combinations to choose from. Eternal also has a developed multiplayer mode so you’re getting two experiences in one.

Fallout 4 (-75% Off)

With the launch of the Fallout TV series and Fallout 4 being on sale, there’s no better time to dive into the series than now. Even if you’re a veteran, this is a neat opportunity to try Fallout 4 if you haven’t already. While I prefer New Vegas, Fallout 4 has a lot of new-gen mechanics I really like with its gunplay, improved weapon choices, skills, and power armor. A lot of the bugs from the launch have been fixed, and it’s overall a much better game now than it was all those years ago.

Rainbow Six Siege (-67% Off)

Rainbow Six Siege has to be one of the best smaller-arena tactical FPS multiplayer games ever made. I’ve spent dozens of hours in this game with friends on Discord, planning our next move in clutch, fast-paced situations. If CoD moves too fast and feels almost supernatural to you, Rainbow Six Siege is the perfect tactical experience for those who like gritty FPS games. Jump in with friends for just ten bucks.

Warhammer 40,000: Darktide (-40% Off)

Darktide is at a 40% discount, which means it’s the perfect time to jump into the grim-dark sci-fi reality of the Warhammer 40K universe. Join up with friends as Ogryn or the Astra Militarum and take down Xenos and the enemies of the Imperium. This is, without a doubt, the best cooperative WH40K experience we have until Space Marine 2 drops, and then we can reevaluate. Still, Darktide is an incredibly worthwhile game to get with friends and immerse yourself in this rich and brutal universe.

Resident Evil Village and Resident Evil 7 Biohazard (-60% and -60% Off)

While more tactical survival horror than a pure FPS, Resident Evil Village and Biohazard are probably two of the most mainstream RE games currently. This is for good reason, as they push the boundaries of character design, visual immersion, and storytelling of previous RE games. At the end of the day, both are just incredible narrative horror games that any fan of the genre, the RE series in general, and beyond should experience.

Borderlands 3 and Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands  (-85% and 75% Off)

In the world of looter-shooters, the Borderlands series reigns supreme for me. While my favorite is Borderlands 2, Borderlands 3 gets many of the great things about the second one right as well. The best part here is that you can buy it for the campaign, which is a decent experience solo, but it gets drastically better with a friend or three. It’s a highly accessible gateway into the series, too, with just a few connections with previous games.

Furthermore, for a more D&D-inspired twist, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is set in the same universe. It mixes the gunplay of Borderlands with some interesting TTRPG and fantasy mechanics of Dungeons and Dragons. Both games are well worth their original prices but now they’re around ten bucks.

Metro Exodus (-80% Off)

The Metro universe has this level of gritty narrative and mechanical detail where you’re constantly savoring every bullet and light source. I love this style of gameplay where you have to think about how you approach the horrors of combat. Metro Exodus takes this gameplay idea and opens it up to a sandbox survival experience with a thrilling story. There’s no multiplayer here, but you don’t need it. Exodus is all about an immersive single-player experience that fans of horror survival and FPS games should definitely try. And it’s currently only the price of a fancy cup of coffee.

Deep Rock Galactic (-67% Off)

Let’s dive into some online FPS co-op games, starting with Deep Rock Galactic. You get to be a space dwarf with up to three friends and blast alien monsters in a procedurally generated environment. The best part is that it’s 100% destructible, and there are tons of dwarven gadgets to use for exploration and setting up optimal positions for team fights with your squad. It’s a mix of cave crawling, fighting hordes of monsters, and destroying random levels every time you play.

Back 4 Blood (-90% Off)

From the creators of Left 4 Dead comes Back 4 Blood with essentially the same structural setup but with new-gen graphics and mechanics. You’re still fighting hordes of zombies with up to three friends online, but now there are more enemies, guns, and playable characters.

Furthermore, Back 4 Blood has a full cooperative-focused campaign and a Rogue-lite system with special cards that modify gameplay. There’s also a Game Director system where an AI adjusts scenarios as you play, providing more exciting fights and gameplay modifiers based on how you approach encounters. Plus a lot of the bugs have been fixex and it’s on the biggest discount on this list.

Ready or Not (-33% Off)

Ready or Not is a SWAT police simulator FPS filled with realistic tactics and gunplay as you’re called in with friends to defuse hostile situations. It’s essentially Payday 2, but you’re playing as the police, and that’s a huge compliment. Even though it has the lowest discount on our list, I would still highly recommend it for those who like slower and more realistic co-op FPS games.

That’s it for my list of the best discounted games to buy during Steam’s FPS Fest. For those looking for games to get in the new year, check out our top RPGs and couch co-op games coming in 2024.
