This bad guy looks awfully familiar

Activision is introducing us to another enemy whose butt players will be kicking in the upcoming Wolfenstein in a few months. Named the Assassin, the character seems to a be a quick, in your face type guy who likes to hide until the best time to display his ninja skills arrives. We’re not sure if this is accidental or not but the character bears strong resemblance to an enemy from F.E.A.R., the Watcher, who like the Assassin could also cloak and do crazy ceiling acrobatics. They both even have similar.. ermm.. things, whatever they are, on their backs. But that’s ok because the Watcher was an awesome enemy to direct bullets at, hopefully the Assassin is similar in that regard as well.

Wolfenstein is out on August 4 for the 360, PS3 and PC.
