Wolfenstein II: The brand new Colossus can be shaping about be certainly one of the 2011 surprise hits. Wolfenstein II offers to be bigger, badder, and a lot more brutal than 2014’s Wolfenstein: The New Order as well as game’s “Kicking Nazis away from America” slogan is certainly capturing some attention.
Wolfenstein II: The newest Colossus is also being operated by some impressive tech. MachineGames creative director Jens Matthies gushed with regards to the game’s new engine from a recent GameSpot interview.
A big change was switching to [Id Tech 6] since the first [Wolfenstein] is made during the transition through the previous generation to your new generation of consoles. So, due to the visuals and the way our faces can express things, everything the sound design, we have is far, way, way more advanced. Everything about the audio/visual front includes a very big upgrade. The entire sound engine is totally, it’s everything from the AI on up – we rebuilt everything. So, things are far more capable.
Matthies also promised PS4 Pro and Xbox One X enhancements (previously, only Xbox One X support have been confirmed) and a PC version with all the great features.
We have uncapped frame rates. Were huge PC players, too, and I think all id’s games use a strong PC DNA in the individual. So, it is important for all of us to assure isn’t even close to sort of the video game feels as solid each and every console version. And [PC] is also our primary testing platform. We are confident that PC players can be very content with isn’t even close to version.
Finally, in case you are worried the Wolfenstein games may someday dial on the Nazi-blasting madness, well, you may rest easy-
Never. That must be Wolfenstein could be to us – it’s that complete rejection of any type of self-censorship or putting boundaries on your creative freedom.
Wolfenstein II: The modern Colossus storms onto PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on October 27. A Nintendo Switch sort of the video game is scheduled for early 2018. Take a look at our recent hands-on preview here.
