Correspondents Winner: World War 2 Is Back In Enemy Front

I quite fancy a return to the past

I remember when this here were all World War 2 games, as far as the eye can see. Before we had yer modern warfares and yer advanced warfares and yer fancy space games fer use in intros about commonplace genres, it was all about Nazis, hedges in France and Steven Spielberg movies.

With Wolfenstein out and City Interactive's Enemy Front just around the corner, let's pretend it is that way again. This latest manshoot is about an American war correspondent playing witness (and gun-pal) to the Warsaw resistance, and this new story trailer wants to convince you of its serious intent.

It wasn't always this way. Enemy Front began life as a 'beat-based arcade action' game, and while that didn't mean that it had a dubstep gun, it seems its lengthy development has taken it down more serious trenches. That seems only reasonable given the game's Warsaw setting is the hometown of its Polish developers.

Although let's not forget the many booms of the trailer released last month. Maybe... Maybe with this new, respectful story trailer, Enemy Front be frontin'.

I'm all about slang today, old and new. City Interactive are best known lately for the Sniper: Ghost Warrior series, and a little of those sniping mechanics seem to have made the swap. We'll find out whether this is worth playing come its release on June 10th.
