They should have used something other than id Tech 5. After Rage, I vowed never to play a game using that engine. It's awful. This game looks kinda interesting too so that's a shame. I imagine it would have looked a lot better with CryEngine.

Definitely. RAGE was a disaster from a technical perspective - the textures were incredibly low resolution, the texture streaming was slow, the game environments had incredibly low polygon counts, it had no dynamic lighting (all the shadows were pre-baked onto the textures), etc. The engine was dated for last-gen and it's clear to see it hasn't improved much. Given that it's the only first-person shooter confirmed to run at 1080p @ 60fps on the Xbox One I think it's clear that it really doesn't push the boundaries when it comes to graphics and nothing I've seen suggests the gameplay is any better.

 

I think I'll pass on this one.

With the recent public release of Unreal Engine 4, I'm confident that id Tech 5 will slip into obsolescence. What a joke of an engine.

Wolfenstein: The New Order Panzerhund Edition
 
game-ce-wolf-neworder-full.jpg

 

Limited to only 5,000 individually numbered editions, the Wolfenstein®: The New Order™ Panzerhund Edition comes in a vintage footlocker-style box (measuring approximately 20" x 10.5" x 8.5") with a stamped number plate right above the antiqued clasp.

 

Inside, you'll find a classified folder affixed to the lid containing 11 classified documents (an assortment of maps, case files, and even an x-ray).

 

The bulk of the footlocker houses an 8" articulated Panzerhund statue. Made of high quality vinyl material (PVC and ABS) the statue is hand painted, includes a base, and strikes a surprisingly menacing pose for a scaled-down replica.

 

Inset in a velvet-lined tray is an exclusive Steelbook, and a set of 14 full-color weathered-looking postcards of the game's alternate history, bound in a display book.

 

Lifting this tray reveals compartments housing a set of three high-quality, embroidered patches, and a box containing custom molded replica dog tags, looped and knotted on twine string.

 

This collector's edition does not include a copy of the game. Keep your pre-order at your favorite retailer and we'll send you these goodies separately—this way we can ship these boxes worldwide and you're not stuck waiting for your game to come along with an oversized, expensively shipped box.

 

Photos are of our prototypes; final products may vary slightly.

 Typically I'm not into these things, but this one looks cool as ####. I'm seriously considering it. If the RTM textures are acceptable. For $100 I guess one shouldn't expect a $60 game, but I'd rather pay $150-ish and have some sort of tin for the DVD. Guess I can't make fun of people who buy these anymore. Hope the game lives up to this.

 

Love the Panzerhund but Ninja Theory's in Enslaved might be more awesome.

Looks deliciously over the top, liked the World Cup reference. Still think it's playing up the anti-German sentiment maybe a tad too much, but it's OK, we're used to that by now. Besides if there's a resistance cell in Berlin then there must be some good Germans im das werldt, nein? :laugh:

No multiplayer?! Damn I was hoping to recapture some of the memories from Return to Castle Wolfenstein multiplayer.

I wonder if the PC version of it still has an online community.

 

When you have a free moment, look up WarwitchTV on twitch.

 

If you're a fan of RTCW then I suspect you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Did you install the 2.56b patch?

Don't think so, where can I get that?
