Nowhere to run in Wolfenstein: The New Order

1 min read


As bored as I am with first person shooters in general , I’m curiously keen for MachineGames’ new Wolfenstein. I think modern shooters have had their day, and perhaps its time to revisit that familiar territory – even if it is an alternate history. In The New Order, ze Nazis won ze war and it’s up to stalwart Wolfenstein hero William ‘B.J.’ Blazkowicz to shift the tides in favour of the allied uprising.

“1960. There is no more war. The Nazis control the globe and hope is lost.

But not for everyone. A resourceful team of resistance fighters, led by B.J. Blazkowicz, are fighting back against the Reich forces led by Colonel Deathshead. Learn more about their movement in this all-new gameplay trailer.

Wolfenstein: The New Order reignites the franchise widely recognized for pioneering the first-person shooter genre. Set in the 1960s, the monstrous Nazi regime has used mysterious advanced technology to win World War II. They now rule the globe with an iron fist. Wolfenstein: The New Order sends you across Europe on a harrowing mission to bring down the Nazi war machine.”

The game is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on May 20 – and those who pre-order the PC and new gen versions will get beta access to the new DOOM.  Here’s the new trailer, which sets up the story and shows us some gameplay. It looks rad.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
