Wolfenstein is the series that never dies, and for good reason: it’s a franchise that pumps out consistently solid games. Despite its last outing in 2009 being a bit of a letdown, fans mostly remember the classics like Wolfenstein 3D, Return to Castle Wolfenstein (our personal favorite) and the open-source FPS extravaganza Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory. Understanding that there’s still a market for some good, old fashioned Nazi-stomping, developer MachineGames and publisher Bethesda Softworks are teaming up for the latest series installment entitled Wolfenstein: The New Order.
The New Order is set to take place during the 1960s, in an alternate history world where the Third Reich has won World War II. Players assume the role of William “B.J.” Blazkowicz, the franchise’s protagonist, and embark on a mission to launch a counter-offensive against the Nazis. There’s a caveat, though; the Wehrmacht now have an army of robots and are hellbent on pretty much destroying everything. Bethesda has gone on the record to say that New Order is a reimagining of the series, and plans to provide a more “gripping and dramatic experience.” If the trailer is any indication of what’s to be expected, they may be on par with doing just that. Not to mention the Hendrick’s music in the background makes the whole montage pretty damn epic, if we do say so ourselves. But don’t just take our word for it, check it out yourself below.
