Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory Cancelled


Surprising news has just come in from Activision. The new Wolfenstein game Enemy Territory has been cancelled. Originally this was going to be a retail release with a single and multiplayer part. However, development of the singleplayer part wasn't turning out all that well it seems. The multiplayer part will still come out though, it will be released as a free downloadable expansion for Return to Castle Wolfenstein.

In Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory Axis and Allied teams do battle in traditional single scenarios, or wage war through a series of linked scenarios in a totally new campaign mode. During combat players gain experience and skill, and through battlefield promotions are awarded additional abilities that remain persistent across an entire campaign. Additionally, new character classes like the covert operative class as well as an enhanced engineer allow teams to perform reconnaissance, steal enemy uniforms, and construct battlefield structures and military installations in the midst of combat to gain tactical advantages for their team. All new game modes, maps and communication abilities require players and teams to develop advanced strategies and tactics in the struggle for front line domination.
