Wolfenstein NOT a WWII Shooter

1 min read

Many gamers understandably have had their fill of WWII shooters, thanks largely to market-oversaturation (Here’s looking at you, Treyarch!). In light of that, Wolfenstein creative director Eric Biessman wants everyone to know that it is not – despite all appearances – a WWII shooter. I am not, despite all appearances, an alcoholic.

“There’s a lot to be excited about in Wolfenstein! The core gameplay of Wolfenstein is based on fast-action, visceral combat and heavy-duty firepower. Looking deeper at the game, you see that it’s set in a very compelling universe. While the game is set in WWII, it’s not a WWII game – that’s like saying the Indiana Jones movies are WWII movies”

With promises of occult dealings, dark science and over-the-top beam weapons, the new take on Wolfenstein may indeed be something to get excited about.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
