Enemy Front
Enemy Front is City Interactive's Upcoming WWII Shooter
Written By
View author's profile

Well, we haven't had one of these in a while, but next year will see two World War II games coming to market with Brothers in Arms: Furious 4 being joined by City Interactive's Enemy Front, which is the WWII FPS being led by Chief Designer, Stuart Black, whose previous work includes Black and - before he left the project - Bodycount. It'll also be using Crytek's CryEngine 3, with an environmental damage system to allow for destructible maps.

Enemy Front is being positioned as a gritty and ambitious WWII FPS, telling the story of a hardened soldier who's dropped behind enemy lines, where he'll have to fight Nazis during "dynamic, diversified missions ranging from quick skirmishes, espionage assignments, and sabotage activities". Enemy Front's narrative apparently spans several years and will see you fight through key battles from WWII.

That means you'll be fighting in the trenches on a desolate battlefield in France and progressing all the way to a secret weapons base in Berlin, where you'll have to put to an end the Nazi's plans to unleash a terrifying weapon that could win them the war. Enemy Front hopes to explore the most notable events of WWII, including what happened in the Wolf's Lair and the activity surrounding the deciphering of the Enigma code. Sounds interesting.

Enemy Front is scheduled for release sometime in 2012. Check out the first screens below.

I haven't got much hope for the WWII shooter at the moment. The next BIA game looks like a terrible idea, and this well...sounds pretty generic, and look at the German soldiers (sorry Nazis, of course they were all nazis weren't they?) in these shots, their features are almost demonic, so its hardly realistic.

We need a proper BIA game to enjoy a proper 'gritty' WWII experience I think, something I would definately pick up.

I like it. Plus with Crytek's CryEngine 3, should look great.

I lost interest and instead became furious after reading that the lead designer would rather do a bloody WWII game than Black 2!

Seriously though, this looks pretty cool. Let's hope they can make a WWII game that doesn't go stale straight away.

@4 did you expect them to have cherub faces with big smiles?

This does look interesting. I do love a WWII game if done properley. Let's just hope it isn't too Anericanised; that really gets on my tits.

@12 I believe it’s an adjective so it itself is a descriptive word.

If you mean define with examples id say the " one man wins the war" , cheesy one liners. no real emotion , too much testosterone , no fear and a piss poor story line involving national identity.

probably sums it up?

Im hoping we are void of that as well. I rememebr a world war one game announced a couple of years ago. Can anyone remember the name? Something heroes? Iv a "Friday custard dounut" up for grabs if you can.

LMAO! Although the visuals do look crisp, all these Nazis have the exact same face. I had no idea Hitler was using a clone army...

I cant remember any good game from City Interactive, i seriously can't. I saw most of their games released for PC, they had terrible graphics and gameplay was boring, nothing really stood out. Lets see if this game will share the same fate...

@9 no I expect them to look like real people not caricatures if its supposed to be a realistic game.

@12 he actually says 'Anericanised' and no I've no idea what that means either.

@25 heated debate is healthy, it means the game is worth talking about whether you like the idea of it or not.

We'll have a good idea the game is horrible if Stuart Black leaves the company 2 months prior to it shipping citing "creative differences".

I'll need to see in-game footage before I get interested in this game.

@28 We won't have to wait that long, Black left around 10 months before Bodycount released, not two.

There is actually a brief gameplay video that has been leaked on YouTube. The game looks quite good, especially for it being so early in development. Lots of destruction & particle effects going on, its utter chaos. Pretty excited about the game, love WWII games in general. If you are interested in the game, def check the vid out. Its easy to find.
