Reminder: Enemy Front out next week, it's actually decent

Pretty sure I'm the only person in this industry that's talking up Enemy Front. Is it going to be a mindblowing revolutionary first-person shooter? No, not really. Is it going to be pretty fun? Yeah, I think so at least. But...

Watch the US Forces in action in Company of Heroes 2 DLC

It's been almost a year since the release of Company of Heroes 2 and now we've got a trailer for the first DLC content for Relic's WWII RTS title. There are two new factions included, the US Forces (which you can see in the ...

Get a taste of Enemy Front's stealth combat

Enemy Front is the upcoming World War II shooter that feels a whole lot like Far Cry 3. That's a good thing! For one, it's nice to go back to a World War II shooter. It's even nicer when it's just not a straight up mindless ...

Download Red Orchestra 2 on Steam for free photo
Download Red Orchestra 2 on Steam for free
by Jordan Devore

Tripwire Interactive has given the heads up that its multiplayer World War II shooter Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad will be free to download -- and keep forever! -- as part of a 24-hour deal on Steam, starting tomorrow. Help spread the word, if you would.

I look at this as a clever way to get grow the community with people who would in all likelihood otherwise never play the game. I only wish more developers were willing to try promotions like this.

The newer Rising Storm, which brings Red Orchestra 2 to the Pacific, will get a promo of its own soon. Be on the lookout for a free weekend and a discount to own the game permanently.

Enemy Front is a fresh approach to World War II shooters photo
Enemy Front is a fresh approach to World War II shooters
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Back in 2011 CI Games announced Enemy Front, a World War II shooter that was being worked on by Stuart Black who was the guy responsible for Black. It's funny how over-hyped that game was looking back.

Anyway, Black left at some point in 2012 and since then Enemy Front was completely reworked. It's still a World War II shooter, but instead of just being another colorless run-and-gun shooter like Call of Duty, the developers at CI have taken more of a fresh approach to the genre that made me think of it as a nice cross between Bad Company and Far Cry 3 during my hands-on time.

Company of Heroes 2 removed from sale in Russia

Whilst our own Joshua Derocher loved Company of Heroes 2, it has not gone down too well in Russia and Eastern Europe. Polgyon reports that the game's publisher in those regions, 1C-SoftClub, has removed the game from sale, bo...

Things go boom in the latest Company of Heroes 2 trailer

The latest look at Company of Heroes 2 shows off just how action packed this real time strategy game is. There's action, explosions, and death all around you in the battlefield. There's so much action here that the trailer even says you should check this one out before you play "the next big FPS." Oh, snap! Company of Heroes 2 will be out on June 25 for the PC.

Here's your Company of Heroes 2 campaign trailer

I'm really grateful that Sega has picked up Company of Heroes 2 after THQ's collapse. The original was a great real-time strategy title, one that I had most of my fun with in multiplayer more than the single-player. This tra...

Company of Heroes 2 teaser trailer is a little unsettling

If it isn't broke, don't fix it. That seems to be Relic Entertainment's philosophy with the follow up to the most highly regarded strategy game in all the land. As is natural for a sequel, the Company of Heroes 2 developer h...

A WWII shooter, you say? Ask and ye shall receive! photo
A WWII shooter, you say? Ask and ye shall receive!
by Tara Long

In what can only be described as truly serendipitous, City Interactive has just wrapped their first media tour for Enemy Front and it's shaping up to be not half bad. Stuart Black, the brains behind Black and last year's less popular Bodycount, paid a visit to our studio last week to show off the first public viewing of his upcoming WWII shooter. Look for it on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC sometime this fall.

World War II shooters, World War II SHOOTERS!

Is it just me, or does the idea of a first-person shooter set in World War II seem really fresh right about now? With the industry being so afraid to touch such a tired concept recently, it seems we've barely seen anybody tou...

E3: Nazi killing fun in Brothers in Arms: Furious 4

Before diving into just how retarded awesome Furious 4 is, know that Gearbox isn't done with the main Brothers in Arms storyline. They'll be getting back to that series when the time is right, but in the mean time they're going to be telling us a new, over-the-top story with Furious 4.

Four specialized soldiers are sent directly into the heart of Germany with one mission: Kill Hitler.

Robots in WWI: Toy Soldier's 'Invasion' add-on

I'm of the opinion that you can improve just about anything by adding robots. That includes World War I, and taking it one step further, videogames about World War I in which army miniatures duke it out. Videogames like Sign...
