Iconic shooter returns
It's time to return back to the twisted, dark world of Wolfenstein.
Bethesda confirmed on Tuesday that Wolfenstein: The New Order will be released during the fourth quarter of 2013.
Set in an alternate 1960's, The New Order takes place during a time where the Nazi's have won World War II and are on the verge of global domination. American war hero and protagonist of past Wolfenstein games, William "B.J." Blazkowicz must launch an "impossible counter-offensive" against the Nazi powers that have taken over the world. Players will infiltrate Nazi strongholds, battle hordes of enemies and take control of "super weapons."
Wolfenstein: The New Order is being handled by MachineGames, a new Sweden-based studio founded by former developers of Starbreeze Studios.
"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."
The game will be out for Xbox 360, PS3, "next-gen" systems and PC towards the end of the year.
