Here is a news that will bring back good memories to the oldest… Operation Wolf Returns: First Mission is announced for this fall ! Developed by the French from Virtualliz Gaming and published by Microïds, it is planned for Xbox Series, One, PC, PlayStation and Switch. No trailer yet, but screenshots are available below.
Operation Wolf was released in 1987 on Taito arcade cabinets. Rail Shooter par excellence, it sent you as a clone of Rambo to kill a host of bad guys. Presented as a tribute to its model, First Mission will retain the same gameplay, automated movements with a playable target. A little like Rambo : The Video Game, released on One in 2020 and developed by Teyon. While the latter hid its true playability, by dangling an FPS, here no fuss: the character moves on its own, but it is you who shoot down the opponents!
Microïds therefore promises a revamped visual, a campaign that can be played alone or in pairs, rankings and an expanded arsenal. Only good for frenzied games and without the fuss!
