Wolfenstein: The New Order Announced, Trailer Revealed

Bethesda today announced that their new game is Wolfenstein: The New Order and will be available in Q4 2013 for the PS3, PC, 360 and the next-gen consoles.

According to a description by Gamespot: “The New Order is set in 1960 after the Nazis won World War II. Gamers play as the familiar American war hero B.J. Blazkowicz and are tasked with launching an “impossible counter-offensive” against the Nazi powers that have taken over the world.

Set in Europe, The New Order will have players infiltrating Nazi strongholds and battling legions of enemies, while taking control of “super weapons” that the Nazis have used to dominate earth–“and beyond.”

Jens Matthies, creative director at MachineGames said in the official press release, “We are excited to bring a new chapter of Wolfenstein to gamers everywhere, as fans of the series, working on this game is an honor, and our team is driven to create an unforgettable action-adventure experience that will make FPS fans proud.”

The last Wolfenstein game in 2009 was solid but nothing special, hopefully this time the game is more impressive and can make a dent in the FPS genre. It’s about time we got back to shooting Nazis, it’s been too long.

Check out the trailer above and let me know in the comments what you think of the game.
