Creating First-Person Shooter Games with Unity

Video description

FPS (first-person shooter) games are one of today's most popular game genres. In this hands-on course, you'll learn to use the Unity game engine to build an FPS game all the way from nothing to a complete game.

Designed for learners with a core understanding of the Unity game engine (familiarity with the Inspector, know how to get around scene view, etc.), this video teaches you the skills you need to create your own FPS games.

  • Build the environment, weapons, and the first-person controller
  • Discover how to create an AI enemy that can attack the player
  • Learn about level design, re-spawning, power-ups, health boosts, and speed pickups

  • Build a game you can modify and add to later on
