City Interactive have dropped some details about their upcoming FPS Enemy Front, the chief designer of which is a name you might recognise - one Mr. Stuart Black. Utilising CryEngine 3, Enemy Front is currently under development for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, placing the player right in the middle of WWII in a reportedly gritty shooter that comes across as a mashup between Inglourious Basterds and The Dirty Dozen.
Having joined City Interactive earlier this year, following his exit from Codemaster's FPS BodyCount (you can read our Bodycount review here), Stuart Black is now heading up the team on Enemy Front, with the game apparently incorporating 'fully destructible maps'and a complex, inding plot that covers the events of Wolf's Lair and the deciphering of the Enigma code.
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. - Konami
Let's just hope Black doesn't get cold feet halfway through the development process with this one too.
Have a few early pics of the game:
