Enemy Front is a gritty first-person shooter rich in action, combat and detail that takes players back to the carnage and chaos of WWII.

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.

Enemy Front also features a complex plot that explores the notable historical threads of WWII to include the events that occurred in the Wolf’s Lair and the activities that surrounded the deciphering of the Enigma code.

Enemy Front utilizes CryENGINE 3 bringing the game’s authentic settings and the bleak landscapes of war-torn Europe to vivid life. Furthermore the environmental damage system of CryENGINE 3 will allow diverse, fully destructible maps that reflect the damage from every bullet fired and every grenade tossed.

Originally scheduled for release in 2012, Enemy Front is now planned for release in June 2014.

The developers initially wanted to tell a story set in World War II, but with modern shooter design. During this process, they decided to focus on a personal angle and highlight the devastation the war brought to their own Warsaw, Poland. Players control an American journalist named Robert Hawkins who eventually joins the resistance fighters in an effort to drive the Nazi forces away.

Considering CI Games’ history with the Sniper series, Enemy Front allows for a number of different play styles — especially stealth and sniping. As players fight through battlefields in France, Germany, Poland, and Norway, they’ll use signature resistance weapons and varying combat tactics. Players can expect the badass, slow-mo sniper cam to make its triumphant return.

But it’s not all action in Enemy Front. One mission opens in a besieged hospital, its hallways lined with bodies both bleeding and dead. These moments remind players of the unimaginable gravity of war, and the heartbreak it leaves in its wake.
