Former Call of Duty and Halo Devs Team Up To Create New FPS

Former Call of Duty and Halo developers have teamed up to bring a new FPS IP to Unreal Engine 5. Here’s everything we know so far.

‘Sentinel’ is the upcoming FPS by development team Pathless Productions. It will allow players to take on the role of a space viking who has to fight off an alien race in order to stop human extinction. Taking place on a vast and dangerous planet, you will need to utilise your weapons and abilities in order to gain the upper hand against its monstrous denizens.

The news was announced alongside an accompanying 2-minute gameplay teaser. Sentinel is still in early development but it is already looking quite impressive.

“When Earth was destroyed by the Coalition, the remnants of humanity took refuge among the stars”, the trailer begins. “After centuries scattered and in exile, the time has come to fight back.”

The trailer then shows pieces of gameplay that make it clear this was made by the same developers as Call of Duty and Halo. The UI is very similar as you explore the vast terrain through the scope of your chosen weapon. 

There is also footage of one of the vehicles you can drive before the trailer shows us the first glimpse of combat. It is what you can expect from the FPS genre – a whole lot of shooting, grenade throwing and melee takedowns. 

Not only that but being made in Unreal Engine 5 means we will be getting some stunning environments to explore when the game releases sometime in the future.

Early Development

As mentioned, Sentinel is still very much in the early stages of development so we might not get more information for a while. There is not yet a publisher tied to the project so it is uncertain whether the FPS will come to Xbox or PlayStation.

However, having developers linked to Call of Duty and Halo puts it in good standing with both.
