City Interactive, the folks responsible for the Sniper: Ghost Warrior
series, have announced a new game taking players back to the formerly crowded WWII shooter genre. Though recent additions to first-person military games have all but abandoned the World War II setting, City Interactive is hoping to reinvigorate the genre with Enemy Front
The game's story consists of the standard shooting, sabotage, and espionage that would be reminiscent of a last-gen Medal of Honor
title. However, it deserves noting that the game will run on Crytek's CryEngine 3, which is the game engine responsible for the stunningly beautiful Crysis 2
as well as future releases like Far Cry 3
and the in-the-works Homefront
sequel. Simply put, the CryEngine 3 offers the pinnacle of console gaming graphics.
The game promises destructible environments and a gritty, realistic take on the war. Here is what City Interactive had to say about their game's story:
Enemy Front is the realistic tale of a hardened soldier dropped behind Nazi lines to engage in dynamic, diversified missions ranging from quick skirmishes, espionage assignments, and sabotage activities. The epic scope of Enemy Front spans several years and key battles as it progresses from the trenches of a desolate France right on through to Berlin and a secret weapons base. Once there, the player must thwart the plans for a terrifying weapon that will all but assure a global Nazis victory. Enemy Front
is due out sometime in 2012.
