Announcing Wolfenstein: The New Order

Today Bethesda announced a brand new game in a long running franchise that perhaps some may have thought would never see a return.

Bethesda Software have announced that there will be a new game in the Wolfenstein series; Wolfenstein: The New Order. This brand new title is being developed by Swedish based MachineGames who were some of the original founders of Starbreeze.

The New Order is set in 1960 in an alternate "if the Nazi's won WWII" scenario. You play as B.J. Blazkowicz and you're tasked with the job to take out the Nazi's who have now taken over the world. Set as you'd imagine in Europe you have to infiltrate strongholds and take out the Nazi's that get in your way. The only question of course is how supernatural the new game is going to be, as from the teaser below it all feels a bit more mechanical.

Wolfenstein: The New Order is scheduled for release during the third quarter of 2013 on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Windows and next generation consoles.
