Coming a full 20 years after the original Castle Wolfenstein and nearly a decade after the first groundbreaking 3D sequel, Return to Castle Wolfenstein updates a video gaming landmark for the next generation of players. In this release, Nazi-bane B.J. Blazkowicz makes his return to a Castle Wolfenstein that is rendered in full 3D with state-of-the-art graphical effects, built on a special version of the Quake III Arena engine.
As in earlier editions in the series, this first-person shooter is set during World War II and takes place deep in the heart of a remote castle that serves as a Nazi stronghold. In the role of B.J., the player becomes involved in a violent adventure of deadly warfare and forbidden occult practices. Utilizing many of the technological advances developed since the release of earlier Wolfenstein games, this sequel is designed to create environments that are as engagingly interactive as possible.
