Enemy Front Marks The Return Of The WW2 Shooter- Published By Namco Bandai.

While, Enemy Front isn’t exactly treading new ground seeing as though it’s another military first person shooter touting pretty realistic graphics….yippe. The only thing that kind of sets it apart from the slew of shooters is that it takes place in World War 2…..again. Releasing out for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in the spring of this year. The game features close quarters combat; class-driven, cover-based enemy behavior; vehicular bosses; destructible environments; multiple mission types such as sabotage, espionage, assassination and assault; gameplay customization; authentic weaponry as well as exaggerated, over-the-top weapon effects; and “faithfully recreated theatres of conflict” including France, Norway, Greece and Poland. (Enemy Front, Namco Bandai, PC, PlayStation, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

The upcoming 2 years we need WW2 shooters on Next Gen. Think of a Next Gen Medal of Honor, Call of Duty or Battlefield with great graphics. And then start in 2016 with Modern Day Shooters again.

I miss ww2 shooters.
Caleb_H  +   184d ago
I miss simple shooters that didn't have a million create a class combinations. I just want well refined gameplay.

soon when we are flooded with WW2 shooters again we will miss modern shooters. its the cycle

Play Red Orchestra 2, the best World War shooter out there.

Very much agreed.
Such a fantastic title. I really need to start putting more time into it.

They were the best. I always love reliving the amazing stories of the most important time in our recent history. Maybe it helps people's interest in WWII shooters due to the fact that most people's families were involved in WWII!

Next gen will bring the power right now and down the road to give us some truly amazing WWII games/stories. I feel like WWII games should never have disappeared the way they did. If Dice or IW/Treyarch/Sledgehammer go back to WWII then that would be the beginning of getting back to amazing games like CoD 2 and MoH etc. We just need one of them to realize the Modern Shooter is starting to become to cookie cutter. At least Battlefield 4 online feels like it won't get old the way CoD did.

I couldn't agree more! I don't need a million perks, killstreaks and attachments - just give me some good maps, realistic weapons, and solid gameplay and I'm in.

I wouldn't mind an updated looking WWII but I am sick of modern day FPS. I would love to see more futuristic themed games.

Nah man we need 6 years of sci-fi shooters and THEN World War 2 and the cycle continues.

Can't wait to get this for PC.

After all this modern stuff, we need to go back to a more diverse era.

* The weapons and landscape is so much more interesting in WW2 than now.

I've been saying it for past year, BF4 needs a BF2 throwback expansion pack. A WW2 game using Frostbite 3 engine ? Gloroius, like actually playing through the Band Of Brothers series. Someone get Speilberg on the phone, time to do Medal of Honor right dammit.

Return?? Pretty sure Rising Storm/Red Orchestra 2 are still being played quite a bit.
Neoprime  +   184d ago
And Iron Front 44.
MidnytRain  +   184d ago
Steam Charts says Iron Front's been averaging less than 50 players online since May last year...

Love WWII. I'd love more. And more Civil War. Actually, an RPG set during the Civil War might be better.
e-p-ayeaH  +   184d ago
civil war?
Monolith  +   183d ago
American civil war.

Nothing wrong with WW2 based fps's.... In fact, nothing wrong with WW2 based games, no matter the genre....The Sabotaur is a good example. I would actually like to see Medal Of Honor return to the form they were with Medal of Honor 1&2 on the PS1.... I would also like to see some great 3rd person shooter/action/adventure world war 2 games being made too.... Also, get some more Vietnam, Korean war & every other damn battle throughout history.....
Why NO DEVELOPER has been smart enough to realize a multiplayer based Cowboys & Indians game would have a massive following IF done well, WOULD sell like hotcakes.....Red Dead Redemption is proof...as it had great sales, BUT, a game with the same setting, but in FPS style play, that pits teams of cowboys vs teams of Indians would be a genre ALL to itself & I personally would LOVE a game like this, done really well.

Open world WWII setting MMO type game like Planetside 2 where you are either the allies or the Axis would be badass.

Upgrading your tanks, planes etc. fighting for control over Europe.

Instead of worlds like planetside it would be countries. England, france, Russia and even the war in the pacific.

Imagine paratroopers landing in a german infested french town, like something out of band of brothers. Damn that would cool.

Thats what I want from next gen games, open world online games, but sadly I cant see this being done, too ambitious.

That's why mag and warhawk are awesome.
Monolith  +   183d ago
Did you ever play medal of honor airbourne. That was a good game. You could land anywhere in the level pretty much(such as a house roof) to try and tactcle each level differently.

I love WWII based games have to buy this..;)
InTheLab  +   184d ago
Last gen only? I'm gonna pass
babis1974  +   184d ago
i wish a WW2 game comes to next gen consoles

We're just in the process of prototyping an isometric, co-op shooter called Mad Devils. Think devil GI's resurrected in demon form and continuing to fight WWII in a dark earth/WWII hell, being smack dab in the WWII genre but with horror/supernatural elements. We're looking to get this up as a downloadable title on the next gen consoles but we're a year and a half away at least from completion, and we still need to fund the damn thing (which is where the prototype is coming in).

Hopefully we can get this made. It's not a strict, WWII type shooter like I love playing but it takes a page from older games like Loaded/Reloaded or more recently Dead Nation and tries to tell a serious story of duty and redemption while lots of things explode. :)
