Yes ! Yes ! Yes ! I am a die hard fan of the Old-School shooter gameplay, simple, fast, guns with a punch and loads of fun, and am extremely happy to announce that Starbreeze, the fabulously talented FPS developer, has just showcased the first gameplay of "Wolfenstein: The New Order" and it looks like that old-school-son-of-a-gunner magic is coming back to life again !!! :D
Lads and damsels, here I present, the sparkling new gameplay footage :
There, There ! See that awesome Old school fun all over !!!B)....and as if the Old School Gods of gaming themselves were guiding this game, it is being brought to life using ID's Tech 5 ! The smoothest engine with superb visuals, made by the ID , the father of Shooters ! Also, note that they seemed to have made a lot of improvements to the engine as well. We can see pillars crumbling and cover shattering when being shot at. AL so, players can cut holes into metal to shoot through while staying hidden. Thats a lot of dynamism in what was a fairly 'static' engine. To top it all, the devs are not even making a big deal out of it ! Just sly smirks on thier faces :) ! Thats the way to roll guys ! and compare that to the COD reveal : "Next gen AI of the Fish which move-out-of-the-way" !
Pffft !! :-/
Lastly, the best part about an Old-School shooter is the"punch' to the guns and , yes, Starbreeze seems to know that all too well. Just watch the gameplay again and tell me you don't want to dual wield that automatic-chain-loaded Shotguns right now !!! :)
They have nailed it to the core ! Starbreeze has brought that 'mystical' magical breath of fresh air in a saturated genre by going back to the basics and nailing the fundamentals ! Heavy hitting gameplay has been complemented perfectly by moody visuals thanx to Tech 5 which is ultralight on hardware, smooth as butter and makes sure the fun gunning never 'stutters' and your smile never drops !!!
Leaving you with an interview with the creative director of the project. Hoping and praying that the whole campaign will have a breathtaking momentum and exhilarating atmospheric and 1960s meets futuristic art ! C'mon Starbreeze, bring it out already :D !!!
