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.
