Fusing epic World War II battles with heart-stopping covert operations and tactical combat, Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Tides of War™ uncovers Hitler's horrific obsession with the occult, living dead, and genetic mutations. As B.J. Blazkowicz, an Army Ranger recruited into the Office of Secret Actions (OSA), players infiltrate deep into the twisted bowels of the Third Reich to battle the unearthly super-soldiers, zombies, and mutants forged in the experiments of Heinrich Himmler.

With both two player co-op and full Xbox Live and System Link multiplayer support—for the ultimate in team warfare—Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Tides of War delivers a frightening and action-packed adventure, teeming with shocking paranormal experiments, perverted, flesh-chewing SS weaponry, and bone chilling encounters with the Fuhrer's unrelenting henchmen.

  • Mission mode: Assume the role of B. J. Blazkowicz, an Army Ranger tasked with infiltrating the deepest realms of the Third Reich to thwart Himmler's occult and genetic experiments. Initially teamed with another OSA operative, Agent One, Blazkowicz begins his journey in Egypt, where he'll uncover the early stages of Himmler's plans. After being grounded by anti-aircraft artillery fire, he must overcome capture and the death of his new partner as he battles throngs of the Fuhrer's brainwashed soldiers and hordes of zombies in an epic campaign that spans the globe—from Egypt to Norway to the heart of Nazi Germany.

  • Twisted and frightening enemies: Including SS guards patrolling forests and secret military installations, zombies unleashed in ancient crypts, mutant X-creatures (products of the hideous, secret X-lab facilities), and the terrifying Occult Priest.

  • Co-op action: The Allies' only remaining hope in the battle against the insidious Reich lies in the hands of two men, B. J. Blazkowicz and his new partner Agent One. The Xbox-exclusive, split-screen Co-op mode allows two friends to work together through the entire single-player campaign.

  • Multiplayer warfare: Using Xbox Liveor System Link, the game's Multiplayer modes pit players in a team-based Axis-vs.-Allies contest for front-line domination, where multiple player classes must mobilise and work together to accomplish mission objectives. Styles of play range from Objective mode all the way to a team-based Elimination mode. With battlefields designed specifically for play on the Xbox, players can enlist up to eight vs. eight for fast and furious combat. XboxLive players can invite other gamers from their list of friendsto their game or jump straight into the action, using Xbox Live Matchmaking to find a favourite style of gameplay. With the Xbox Live Communicator and full voice-masking capabilities, players can verbally coordinate attacks, communicate enemy positions, or scream for a medic.

  • Made for the Xbox: Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Tides of War delivers Dolby Digital 5.1 audio; new monsters, weapons, and useable items; an expanded story line, including new missions, co-op play, and full Xbox Live; and System Link multiplayer support for the definitive Xbox experience.

  • Tactical combat: Every situation is different, and players must survey each potential combat situation and decide how best to approach the combat, by either using stealth or overwhelming firepower. With a robust scripting system and life-like A.I. and animation systems, tactical combat reaches all-new levels.
