Wolfenstein: The New Order
The latest installment in the epic Wolfenstein series takes you to an alternate universe of the 1960s in which the Germans won World War II and are now dominating the planet with their advanced technology. Like previous games of the franchise, you play in the first person perspective, leading a lone hero fighting a counter-offensive against the Nazis.
Wolfenstein: The New Order uses OpenGL and is based on the Id Tech 5 engine, which was seen in Rage. Id Tech 5 pioneered Virtual Texturing, which ensures that textures don't get reused and are incredibly sharp – unless you take a really close look. Virtual Texturing, however, increases level file size immensely and causes texture pop-ins on lower-end systems. Another major drawback of the engine is that it is limited to 60 FPS. We tested the game with details set to Ultra and removed the 60 FPS limit.
