    Easily the best news for me from this E3 so far. Loved TNO and TOB and I was actually hoping for a US setting for the next game... so again, great news! :nerd:

    Wolfenstein 2 performance on AMD?

    Hmm nice but will Wolfenstein II run better on AMD than IDtech5 did?
    (hello evil within and dishonored 2 on AMD :puke2:)?

    Perhaps vulkan could be patched in and performance would be like in Doom IDtech 6 :chainsaw2: (120fps+ vsycn, GCN1.0 card at 1080p, near ultra detail)

    I really hope they get this right..

    "Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus releases on October 27th, is powered by id Tech 6"

    I dont think we need to worry. If it works like Doom, AMD users will have no problems. I really hope Dishonored and Evil Within 2 will also use latest engine.

    I know this isn't what Wolfenstein is about, not even close, but in general, why is it that we never seem to get a game where the roles are reversed? I want to be a fictional Nazi (it sadness me that I have to spell it out for people these days...) and see the horrors from their perspective; perhaps a storyline where the main protagonist comes to realize that he's one of the bad guys and most fight them from within while maintaining his position/daily work at one of those historical sites, while also trying to feed and keep his family together from the drama caused during this epoch, nightly bombing raids, etc. with an action twist (the movie Schindler's List comes to mind) as you may realize I wasn't a big fan of Wolfenstein: The New Order because of the PC approach they took (it had everything what you would expect from a WWII game if you were lucky enough to live outside of Germany) with exceptional graphics, but the generic storyline didn't make me bleed.

    While I respect and understand where you are coming from your idea of a good game isn't for the masses. Ultimately games are a business and businesses have to make a product that the masses will want to buy. What's cooler than blasting Nazi's and saving America at the same time? I would have to say not waking up one day realizing you are a deviant and have to sabotage the works from within. It is a nice movie line but not a knock em over sell a zillion video games idea.

    Probably game will satisfy most of the masses. But I don't buy it.
    No multi-gpu, no 144Hz, locked 60, general stuttering, and many other problems expected.
    I like be wrong.

    I mean why would they make the game with the old id5 engine, they are going to use the new id6 one used in the most recent doom game, most likely a modified version of it i doubt they made id7 yet.

    And although the last one ran at a locked 60, there was no stuttering on my system(s) and everyone is moving away from multi-gpu, which sucks but it seems to be the route most developers are going down, or it gets patched later in like Gears of war 4 recently got muti-gpu support

    The idea is interesting but a game with that approach would be blasted immediately by almost everyone. They would call it nazi propaganda and say that the makers of the game to be nazis and so on...

    Another interesting idea, at least for me, would be a game about terrorism where we would play as a terrorist instead of the normal good guy trying to save the world from the evil. The moral of the game could be that in the same way we view terrorists as the evil, they think of us the same way because of all the people killed because of the war on terror and wars "sponsored" by the same countries who preach about peace... Resulting in normal people becoming terrorists to fight the evil ones. Something i think it´s happening in real life, but that´s another story.
    Of course everyone would call the game terrorism propaganda and would call the makers of terrorists and such and the game would flop hard...

    So it´s better to continue with the typical stories of saving the world from nazis/terrorists/North Koreans/aliens/devil/etc....

    Answers are simply..
    Coz idtech6 very, very, poorly support tech's I mention above.
    Which I belive most ppl will like, just only if they implement it.

    Talking, or rather repeating, that SLI is a dead technology, is not on place.
    Nvidia still evolving their SLI technology. HB SLI bridge. Giving driver support as they can.
    Blamming the whole technology, just by some lazy developers. Is also not on place.

    I think You not try to run games maxed-out in 4K60.
    Try run (lets say).. Deus ex Mankind Devided, Watch Dogs 2, Mass Effect Andromeda, The Witcher 3..
    List is much longer.
    I have very good scaling with these games..

    I have question for U. Do You have SLI/CF supported mobo in Your system..?
    Or You like buy Titan cards evry time, after extreme prices, with small compute power increase..?
    I hope You get me.

    Only thing sucks for me its, really lazy developers :)

    EDIT : In past I had single 1080Ti. Coz I like try gamming with just one fast GPU. So I expected no problems or stuttering from single GPU.
    But I notice smooth gameplay, with single 1080Ti in 4K it's just pure theory.

    After the cliffhanger at the end of "Wolfenstein: The New Order" I can't wait.

    In the case of Wolfentstein it does make sense, because this was the premise from the very first installment - blasting nazis.

    What's sad is that even more "realistic" games/movies, or that want to be somewhat historically accurate, will only go for the beaten cliche roads... and it's an even worse now than it was say 10-15 years ago with all the LGBT cuckification of the media (not like the jokers from "alt-right" are any better).

    But yeah, will never happen. And if it does by a miracle, it will be bashed before it even comes to light.
