The world of professional gaming is a pretty exclusive scene. Not many people follow it, and even fewer participate in it. For the number of people that play games, you’d think more people would be interested in those that have mastered them, the way hobbyist sports players follow the world of professional sports. Developer Play2Improve is looking to address this issue with a new browser-based shooter called FPS Trainer, a game geared towards those that have played online shooters in the past, but are largely unaware of the deep level strategy at play.
The game’s main innovation is an in-depth AI coaching system based on proven methods developed by professional gamers over the course of many years. They claim the lessons you’ll learn with this game will transfer easily to other competitive FPS’s, from Quake to Call of Duty. The game features a very clean visual style, allowing you to have an immediate understanding of your surroundings and your enemies without being distracted by the sorts of visual noise present in other games.
FPS Trainer is currently in the alpha phase, but if you’d like to give it a shot, or just learn a little more, head over to their website. And trust me, e-sports isn’t all that intimidating. It can be tough, but it’s a lot of fun.
