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.

I went ahead and preordered the game itself. I feel like the FPS genre has taken itself way too seriously and this game is anything but that. And I support that fully.

Game itself: could be interesting. Getting sick of having to enter birthdays to read a blog though.

I must say that, despite my loswest expectations, these trailers have convinced me.

 

This is the game Duke Nukem Forever tried to be.

Hahaha didn't notice that until you pointed it out, nice touch! Actual melons! What the hell are melons doing in a bleak landscape like that? These guys have a good sense of humor.

Another game where developers get lazy and let the storage requirements fly out of control. Seriously, a shooter has absolutely no reason to need 50GB.

 

That's just the size of the file, come on, it's not really a proper requirement. Maybe this game is huge? Maybe they got lazy and didn't compress the 4K textures? I don't know. Specs i'd be suspicious of are like min 8GB RAM and an i7 or something, that's either PR speak or admitting to really poor optimization.

Disk space is cheap (PC), I'm happy to see they didn't get lazy and make it x32. Hopefully it'll eat up all the RAM I throw at it. The only think I'll say about the "recommended" free HD space, is with recommendations that large, hopefully the hand textures look better in the final game than they have in the demo shots. Everything else looks good.

Cost of space doesn't matter. The fact remains that there's no reason for a shooter to have a space requirement anywhere near 50GB on any platform. Especially when it doesn't really look better than games 1/3 of its size.

It's just a recommendation at this point. When it's released it'll be interesting to see the actual footprint. If it's audio and the quality is high enough, I don't care. If it's textures uncompressed and the game loads faster, I don't care. Optimization is great, but we've been doing that for years, have all this power on our desks, and very little utilizes it to actually, deliver. If dumping it on a bunch of disk space makes it perform and deliver a great experience, I just don't care anymore. I hear what you're saying, but I just want games to start living up to the hype. We're just now getting everyone to start coding x64, utilizing available memory, DX12 is just now promising parallelism to take advantage of multicore CPUs, sometime 2015. I just want a great experience delivered.

Uncensored Wolfenstein: The New Order will be geo-locked on PC

 

International versions of Wolfenstein: The New Order are forbidden within Germany due to the use of Nazi imagery in the game, and as a result developer Bethesda is geo-locking versions on Windows PC so they cannot be activated in the country.

 

Bethesda details this decision to geo-lock the game on its official blog. Geo-locking, which is a method of selecting what countries can access content, was implemented on the basis of legal advice and industry standard practice, writes a Bethesda representative, adding that the international version also won't be available for sale in Austria.

 

While Germany offers cultural exemptions on the use of Nazi content in films, current legislation in the country does not extend to video games. "A violation may result in confiscation of the Game, a high financial penalty or up to three years in prison. Any person involved and/or responsible for such violation may be prosecuted and sentenced, including officers and employees of companies involved," write Bethesda.

 

The German release of Wolfenstein: The New Order only censors Nazi content, but violence levels remain the same across both versions of the game.

Wolfenstein: The New Order is slated to release on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on the same day. Pre-orders for all platforms include beta access to the new Doom. For more on the game, read our recent hands-on impressions with the title and publisher Bethesda's commissioning of an original German-language pop music soundtrack for the alternate history.

      Here are the biggest games from THQ Nordic's September 2021 showcase
      by Asher Madan

      On Friday, publisher THQ Nordic hosted its first-ever digital showcase where it revealed a slew of new games and provided gameplay footage for others. While more than half a dozen titles were highlighted, we're going to focus on the major releases like Destroy All Humans 2 - Reprobed and SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake. You can learn more about them below.

      Destroy All Humans! 2 - Reprobed
      Destroy All Humans! 2 - Reprobed was leaked a few days ago by PlayStation and many gamers assumed that it was a PlayStation 5 exclusive. Luckily, that's not the case and it's coming to Microsoft's platforms as well.

      Destroy All Humans! 2 - Reprobed is in development for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S. It doesn't seem like it's coming to last-generation consoles.

      Elex II
      Elex II is coming to last-generation and current-generation consoles. It should be available on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X.

      Outcast 2: A New Beginning
      Outcast 2: A New Beginning was announced a while back, and it's currently in development for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S. The in-engine gameplay trailer finally showcases the visuals we can expect from the project.

      SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake
      SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake is coming to PC, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One soon.

      Which games stood out for you during the showcase? Let us know in the comments below!

      Halo Infinite Brutes get much-needed makeover in leaked images
      by Asher Madan

      When the Halo Infinite campaign was shown off in 2020, a lot of gamers were disappointed by the lackluster visuals. The build we saw a year ago was an early version, but that didn't stop the above-posted image of a Brute — one of the alien species you encounter in the Halo franchise — from going viral and becoming a hilarious meme.

      Craig the Brute lacked a lot of detail and it was clear 343 Industries needed to polish the visuals. Today, Twisted Voxel noted that someone posted pictures that show an updated look for Brutes due to appear in Halo Infinite. They showcase Master Chief standing on top of a dead Brute. However, this Brute has much more detail on his face like warpaint, more realistic wrinkles, and facial hair. You can take a look at the images below.





      We still haven't seen any new gameplay from the campaign, but 343 Industries will probably release it soon given the fact that Halo Infinite is only a few months away. These changes are definitely a step in the right direction.

      Halo Infinite will launch on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on December 8, 2021. You can purchase it for $59.99 on the Microsoft Store, or play it through Xbox Game Pass if you're a subscriber.

      Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake PS5 and PC timed exclusivity confirmed
      by Asher Madan

      During the PlayStation September 2021 Showcase, Sony revealed that it was working with Aspyr — the team that's ported a lot of old Star Wars games to modern consoles lately — including Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake. Despite the overwhelming excitement for the project, there was some confusion about whether the game was a timed exclusive. The main question was if it would end up on other consoles aside from PlayStation 5 (PS5).

      The terms "Launch Exclusive" and "Console Launch Exclusive" were thrown around, but it's unclear what they really mean. Luckily, Tully Ackland, the Senior Game Designer of the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake, answered that question. A few days ago on Twitter, Ackland confirmed that it's a "timed exclusive for PS5 and PC". This means it'll come to other devices eventually. Ackland didn't discuss other platforms it'd be available on, but we're hoping it hits Xbox Series X|S down the line.

      Typically, timed exclusivity lasts around a year. Just look at Rise of the Tomb Raider as an example. Keep in mind that Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake is still very early in development so we'll probably have to wait many years to get our hands on it. Given the fact that COVID-19 is still affecting how everyone works, there's no way to ascertain an accurate timeline.

      Back 4 Blood gets long-awaited campaign trailer
      by Asher Madan

      Back 4 Blood is the spiritual successor to Left 4 Dead, a zombie shooter that's regarded as a cult classic nowadays. It's coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 on October 21, 2021. While we've seen a lot about the multiplayer portions of the game, we didn't know much about the story until today.

      Developer Turtle Rock Studios recently released a trailer for the game that gives us a better look at what to expect from the co-op campaign. Back 4 Blood seems like a B-movie that takes itself too seriously, but, luckily, the story allows for the opportunity to slay a lot of zombies. You can watch it below.

      The infection in Back 4 Blood was caused by a parasitic worm and now the individuals who are immune are fighting back. It seems like a town is besieged by the undead and it's up to you and your team to neutralize the threat.

      Back 4 Blood will be available on Xbox Game Pass at launch as well. You can also purchase it through the Microsoft Store or the platform of your choice, starting at $59.99. The Deluxe and Ultimate editions give you early access and the expansion pass.
