Wolfenstein: The New Order

Bethesda Softworks announced Wolfenstein: The New Order will be coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC in the fourth quarter of 2013.

The latest entry in the Wolfenstein first-person shooter franchise will also be released for next-generation consoles.

No new Wolfenstein game has released since 2009’s Wolfenstein, which was developed by Raven Software and published by ActivisionRather than being a precursor, continuation or reboot of that game or the main Wolfenstein universe, Wolfenstein: The New Order will be set in an alternate history in which the Third Reich succeeded in winning the second World War and now control the world.

[adsense250itp]Set in Europe during the 1960’s, the story involves the central hero of the Wolfenstein franchise, William “B.J.” Blazkowicz. Famous for being able to succeed against impossible odds, he is tasked with overthrowing the oppressive leadership of the Nazi party. Players will control Blazkowicz as he fights across Europe, helping him overthrow the dictatorship by fighting against legions of enemies while using the same weapons the Nazis used to take control.

The game’s creation will be handled by Swedish game developer MachineGames. The studio was founded in 2009 by former members of Starbreeze Studios, whose work includes the critically acclaimed The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher’s Bay. The developer previously announced it was working on an unannounced project  following its acquisition in 2010 by ZeniMark Studios, the parent company that also owns Bethesda. Wolfenstein: The New Order was that project and the team has promised to do its utmost to ensure a successful final product.

Wolfenstein: The New Order will run using id Tech 5 Technology by iD Software. In a press release, the company announced Gamespot will run exclusive feature stories on Wolfenstein: The New Order revealing new information. Feature articles will run from now until the game’s release and include stories about the game and its development.
