Today, we’ve got a fresh batch of screenshots and artwork for the upcoming Wolfenstein: The New Order. The assets also come with some light story details about this new shooter.
Here’s the bit about the story:
Europe, 1960. The Nazis turned the tide of the war using a new kind of mysterious, advanced technology. Using unrelenting force and intimidation, they have brought even the most powerful of nations to their knees. The Nazi regime now rules the globe with an iron fist. Play as the one man who dares go up against the world’s most formidable military. You are B.J. Blazkowicz, the American war hero. You are the only man capable of rewriting history.
Back when Wolfenstein was a DOS game, Nazis were all the rage in evil villainy and odd science-fiction. Gaming’s obsession with those opponents has slowed to a lull in recent years; will this new Wolfenstein reinvigorate the genre?
Wolfenstein: The New Order was recently announced by Bethesda for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and “next-gen” platforms. The title is being developed by MachineGames, a new studio formed by ex-Starbreeze employees in Sweden.
