Wolfenstein: The New Order announced for current, next-gen

Nazis have taken over the world. Launch your counter-offensive.

Following yesterday’s tease, Bethesda Softworks has announced Wolfenstein: The New Order, an action-adventure shooter in development at MachinGames for release on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, and next-generation consoles in Q4 2013.

A “reimagining of the franchise,” The New Order promises a “grippling and dramatic experience” from a studi of developers “known for creating compelling” and “story-driven” games.

The game is set in 1960s Europe after the Nazis won World War II. Players step in the shoes of American war hero B.J. Blazkowicz, who is tasked with launching an “impossible counter-offensive’ against the Nazio powers that have taken over the world by infiltrating Nazi strongholds, battling legions of enemies, and taking control of Nazi-made “super weapons.”

“We are excited to bring a new chapter of Wolfenstein to gamers everywhere,” said Jens Matthies, creative director at MachineGames. “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.”
