Wolfenstein: The New Order Announced, Due End of this Year
Bethesda teased a new project yesterday, and now we know exactly what the company is up to. Wolfenstein: The New Order has officially been announced, with developer MachineGames at the helm. This isn't the Wolfenstein you're familiar with however, as it's set in 1960 after the Nazis won World War II. That's right, in The New Order the Nazis became the dominant power, and it's up to series hero B.J. Blazkowicz to launch an "impossible counter-offensive." The game is set in Europe and tasks you with infiltrating various Nazi strongholds, facing off against a multitude of enemies, and even using some "super weapons" the Nazis have used to control Earth "and beyond." The announcement trailer is available below that you should really check out.
Wolfenstein: The New Order is due to arrive on PC, PS3, Xbox 360, and next-generation consoles at the end of this year. Developer MachineGames is composed of the original founders of Starbreeze Studios before, who left in 2009. Zenimax, parent company of Bethesda, then acquired MachineGames in 2010.
