Wolfenstein: The New Order gets new release date in Europe

Bethesda to release the Xbox One, PS4, PS3, 360, and PC shooter earlier than planned in Europe.

Bethesda has announced that the European release date for Wolfenstein: The New Order has been brought forward to May 20.

The date shift means Bethesda is staging a simultaneous worldwide launch for the title, which will now be released on the same Tuesday across America, Europe, and Australasia.

Bethesda is also offering eventual access to a Doom 4 beta for those who preorder the game.

"The New Order seems like it's trying to be Inglourious Basterds, mixing dark, absurd humour with even darker ultraviolence. If the prologue is any indication, I'm not sure MachineGames has enough Tarantino in it to pull this off. But the lows of an inconsistent tone didn't detract from the game's first hour of first-person shooting highs," said GameSpot editor Daniel Hindes after playing the new Wolfenstein earlier this month.

Wolfenstein: The New Order will be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

I know someone working on this game (no leading position), so I hope it will be good. He previously worked on Syndicate, so I hope the public response to this game will be better.

I've never understood how it can be so difficult to get a game released everywhere at once anyway. It isn't like they are short on stock, most games release up to a week apart so the stock they have will have been made long before hand.

Red tape most likely as usual.

I thought that the May 20th was the internationally DOR? Damn, still so long till May 20th and nothing cool is coming in between. Maybe there could be another April fools Blood Dragon? I could use some Blood Dragon 2 right now which makes fun of Modern Multiplayer Singleplayer (Aka MMS, Modern Military Shooter).

It's really hard to market shooters these days isn't it ? The gaming world is full of hipsters going "its just another FPS". 
It will most likely be a better game than most of the "Most Anticipated " games that the "REAL GAMERZ" are excited for.

I like how they actually have the Nazis speaking German rather than just speaking English with a German accent. The Graphics look awesome and I'm reaaaalllyy looking forward to this game.

The trailers have been entertaining and Bethesda is involved, should be a hit. (PS4 version)

Well, people who started gaming post- 2007, only know of CoD or BF and people who grew up on CoD and BF only know CoD and BF. They think FPS is CoD/BF. FPS is Wolfenstein,DOOM, Quake, Duke Nukem and Half-Life.

@gamerno66666  I never understand why Germans censor their own history. It happened. No point denying it. Just like there's no point denying slavery occurred in Britain and the USA. If you look hard enough every country has a dark history, that's just human nature, unfortunately.

@PS4andXoneGamer That's what happens when you rush out to pick up a new console. It takes time for a good library of games to appear.

@EasyComeEasyGo Yep, it was never going to get released in Germany. Sucks to be them, they're potentially missing out on a great game.
