    Are there any First Person Shooters set in a future war like Battlefront: 2142? Call of the Proletariat: The Third World War?
    What about the Cold War period?

    The Cold War era is going to have two Call of the Proletariat games: Horn Of Death, set during the War For The Horn Of Africa, and Times Of Crisis, set during the UASR interventions in the Congo and Vietnam.

    (As of right now, that's all we know about the Cold War, and we aren't supposed to talk about it.)

    They've been well reviewed, but neither was as extensive or as revolutionary as COP II, so with the support of their fans they are considering making a futuristic COP set during the Third World War, where the UASR and Comintern take on a resurgent India and it's junior partner, Brazil, in both Earth and the solar colonies and socialist republics set up in the solar system and alpha Centauri.

    The game would be complete with massive Combat Mechs similar to 40K Emperor Titans, suits of power armor similar to the mobile infantry complete with jump packs , chainguns, and plasma chainsaws, hover tanks, and much more futuristic weaponry that takes COP to a new level compared to COP II. Combat is more like WW2 as well.

    The game would also feature a GAE Mark 3 which takes a similar leap in graphical quality that the GAE Mark 2 did with the original.

    There's a lot more tolerance for the far-right and general unpleasantness overall due to the Cold War but bans are still abound.

    Hey, since Uncle Sam no longer exists as a symbol of America ITTL, who do you think replaces him? I'd imagine a burly industrial worker would replace him. "Hank The Hammer" anybody?

    She'd probably be the "female" personification of America, similar to how Columbia is for the USA.

    "Hank The Hammer" sounds cheesy as fuck, but I kinda like it.

    I remember Upton Sinclair becoming the grandfatherly symbol of the UASR to replace Uncle Sam.

    Maybe Big Bad John will have a place in UASR fiction as like a personification of the common American man.
