Of all what was announced last night in Bethesda's E3 presentation, I am looking forward to this the most. Releasing October 2017.

I do not know, but I hope I got mine done while I was a kid. Sounds like something that would be more painful if done now.

I just used a VPN. Seems the culprit were the Swastikas in the US version of the trailer. The German trailer had those replaced with other symbols.

I would guess yes since the game has swastikas in it.

edit: Whoops! I was ninja'd by Jayhawk. biggrin

Looks really fun, they are going all out on the setting this time.

It looks absolutely fantastic but unfortunately way too violent for me. Over the years my yearning for more and more graphic violence in games has waned somewhat.

Can anyone confirm that the Doom version of idTech game engine was better than The New Order? That's what I heard anyways. I hope they use that version of the engine if that's true because to this day I still have a bi@##$ of a time getting that game to run decent. Such horrid performance and aliasing and texture loading issues. It has made my progress slow in the New Order. I've been playing it since release but never finished it because of all the stop and starts and having to fiddle with settings. I bought the expansion as well but refunded it in Steam because that ran even worse for me. Real shame as I enjoy these games but the problems makes it very slow going for me.

I still play Ravensoft's Wolfenstein which is also a very good game.

Wolfenstein = IdTech5

Doom = IdTech6


IdTech6 + DX11 = very good performance.

IdTech6 + Vulkan = Incredibly good performance.

I had very few issues with TNO and TOB, but mostly because the last 2 GPUs I have used had 8GB of VRAM Still some tweaking on the settings was necessary.

But the essential fixes are related to the texture cache not being created. The fixes are:

TNO: https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Wolfenstein:_The_New_Order#Texture_cache_not_being_stored

TOB: https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Wolfenstein:_The_Old_Blood#Texture_cache_not_being_stored

Other tweaks in those links.

Hopefully they'll keep some of the tongue and cheek stuff in this one as well.

Wow that was a great trailer.

Love the alternate timeline world they created in this series. The New Order was so much fun to play. Was The Old Blood a completely new game or was it a retelling of New Order with a couple new things in there? I never played Old Blood am I missing out?

You're missing out. It fills in some of the blanks from New Order, but is pretty stand alone. The "Grammar Nazi" is from Old Blood.

I'd prefer if they have kept the promos with Nazi versions of 60's music hits, but can't deny the marketing for these games is some of the most original out there:
