Everything we know about Wolfenstein Cyberpilot

Help the revolution by roasting people alive. You know, the moral high-ground.

Unless you have lived under a rock that knows nothing about games, you have probably heard of Wolfenstein. There have been a lot of games over the years, each with the same “kick some Nazi ass” plot line but with different game mechanics. This game, Cyberpilot, is the first Wolfenstein game designed from the ground up to be played in VR, so we are pretty excited about it.

Wolfenstein Cyberpilot is the franchise’s first foray into Virtual Reality and it looks to be a lot of fun. Let’s take a look.

Nazi Stomp!

Wolfenstein is a short VR experience that ties into the main Wolfenstein timeline. Expect to stomp a lot of Nazis using exotic machinery and fire. Lots of fire.

What is the premise of the game?

Based in an alternative 1980 where the Nazis won World War 2, you play a French resistance fighter and work as their super hacker. Your primary job is to hack the giant machines the Nazis use to keep control of the populace and use those machines against them!

You get to pilot different mechanical monstrosities around the streets of Paris, destroying Nazis and trying to free the citizenry. As of right now, that’s pretty much all the plot we have, but hopefully more storyline will be unveiled as we get closer to release date.

Did someone say giant robots?

Yup. The entire premise of the game is built around your amazing hacking skills allowing you to take control of the giant robots that the Nazis now use to control the populace. So far we have only seen footage of one of the robots you control, though there are others on the front cover and in the trailer.

The Panzerhund is essentially a mechanical hellhound. It walks around the map on all fours and seems to have two main attacks, a charge attack, and a “set everyone and everything on fire until the worlds burns” attack. I feel like the second one may be more effective than the first.

What are the controls?

We have only seen footage of the Vive version of the game, and that used the Vive controllers. It’s unlikely that Cyberpilot will use the Move controllers though as they have no trackpad or even a D-pad. In fact, if you look at the box art for the PlayStation VR it doesn’t show the move controllers on there at all.

This normally means the game will be controlled by the DualShock controller, which is a little disappointing. It feels like the game could have done a lot with the Move controllers, especially if they were used like joysticks. Now I think about it, a HOTAS would have been a great control method too.

When and where can I get it?

Wolfenstein Cyberpilot will be available to purchase on July 26, 2019. It will be available from the PlayStation Store or — if you are like me and you want a physical copy — you can pre-order it at Amazon right now for only $20. That $20 price tag tells us this isn’t a fully formed, 8-10 hour game, but it should be long enough to act as a fun diversion from the daily grind.

Microsoft Surface Duo pre-orders arrive ahead of September 10 availability

Nearly one year after teasing the device, Microsoft has made its Surface Duo official. While it technically works as a phone, Microsoft’s built the unit as an all-purpose multi-tasking product for professionals. Indeed, it’s like a shrunken down Surface experience that just happens to work as a phone, too.Powered by Android 10, the device features a pair of 5.6-inch OLED displays connected by a narrow 360-degree hinge. Together they form an 8.1-inch display.As one might expect, users can run multiple apps at the same time. Run them side-by-side and you’ll dial up the productivity. Or, in select instances, expand the app to let it take advantage of the larger tablet-like space.Microsoft has taken steps to customize the software and suite of apps, giving it a blend of the best of Android and Windows. Included are Office, Outlook, OneNote, Edge, and a host of other titles, many of which are built with two screens in mind.Key hardware includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, 6GB RAM,and a choice of 128GB/256GB storage.Additionally, the Surface Duo has USB-C, video output via DisplayPort HDMI, a fingerprint reader, and an 11-megapixel camera with 1080p video conferencing/4K video capture. A 3,577mAh battery runs the show and supports 18W fast charging.As a company, we are focused on delivering purposeful innovation – pushing the boundaries of existing categories to not just move technology forward, but to move people forward.While it doesn’t have the hardware that rivals flagship phones, the Microsoft Surface Duo is more about the capabilities. It’s definitely not for everyone and has a very targeted audience.The Surface Duo will launch September 10 with a $1,399 starting price. It supports 4G networks for AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile. Pre-orders are available now at Microsoft’s website.
