Wolfenstein: The New Order release date, crazy bloody trailer revealed

Bethesda launching first-person shooter on May 20 across Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC.

by

Wolfenstein: The New Order will launch across the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC on May 20 in North America, Bethesda announced today. A release in Europe will follow on May 23. Preordering Wolfenstein: The New Order will get you into the upcoming Doom 4 (now just called Doom) beta. You can read more about that promotion in this separate story.

Wolfenstein: The New Order was previously scheduled to launch in fall 2013, but was delayed last summer because the game needed more polish. The game is a single-player affair and has no multiplayer whatsoever.

In development at Sweden-based MachineGames, Wolfenstein: The New Order is set during an alternate 1960s after the Nazi regime was victorious during World War II thanks to its use of advanced technology. The Nazis now rule the world, and it's up to you, as series hero B.J. Blazkowicz, to rise up against this power.

Bethesda also released a new trailer for Wolfenstein: The New Order today, which has a very Inglourious Basterds feel to it. The trailer introduces the game's locations, characters, and story, and ends with a terrifying and grisly encounter between Blazkowicz and a Nazi leader.

Be sure to watch the trailer all the way to the end...

I love the classical music with the ridiculus action, feels like Mafia 2.

Fucking hell, finally a trailer that isnt BS, ID was like ''FUCK IT'' and put so much action in it that its impossible to keep track of how many Nazis were killed.

This is where CoD got it wrong. Infinity Ward? Treyarch!? come on, BETHESDA!

Good to see a hardcore FPS and not another "realistic" military shooter.

Finally, a first person shooter that focuses on delivering a quality single player experience without tacked on multiplayer.

Single player only.  But that's okay because often multiplayer just goes to waste anyway.

Wolfenstein has always had really enjoyable campaigns.  I hope that doesn't change like it has mod CoD.

I paid this off already, so seeing it with a fairly early launch (not fall or winter) is awesome!!!

It looks great!. Old school, if it moves... heck! if it exists, kill it!. And from the video, it looks like we get a chainsaw weapon at some stage.

I never understood why game developers think dual-wielding is cool.  In the history of armed conflict, I am willing to bet that that the life expectancy of someone attempting to use two guns simultaneously is cut drastically short.  I've seen demonstrations with people trying to use two pistols to shoot at the same target, and it's inefficient, inaccurate, and generally not considered an option in live-fire scenarios with any kind of firearm.

Looks good.....BUT so does that girl across the bar standing alone. Guess there is only one way to find out if she is available, her man is in the shitter, or she is a dude.

Looks like loads of fun.  This one is also on my list of must buys -- Thief, Infamous, Evil Within, and The Order 1886 are the others.

This is the only game i'm going to preorder, because i'm confident that the extra time Machine Games took with this game, was worth it and they got the game to be perfect.

No one seems to notice that the trailer shows Caroline Becker even though she died in the last game...

Omg that field of view is disgusting, best be a setting to change this & hope this has none of this modern day cod clone garbage like aim down sights which would be an insult to a great franchise, but these last 6 or so have been nothing but middle fingers to great franchises for one reason or another.

This day and age.. Multiplayer is massively overrated.


I'm glad this doesn't have any useless mp bugging it.

Not sure I like the 60s timeline. I prefer the WW2 Wolfenstein setting. But it still looks great.

@TalSet_11

They are not going for realism. Did Dual welding make Goldeneye n64 or Halo bad games? The New order is an old school shred 'em up with as much ammunition as possible shooter.

@SteamyPotatoes  I've not seen aim down sights in any trailer so I highly doubt it's in the game. A lot of the people making the game used to work at Starbreeze and they made some really fun shooters so they certainly have the pedigree to make it a great shooter.

@Garm31 I love the setting. I've always thought that a game set in a world where the Nazis won WW2 would be awesome.

It's a pity TitanFail has scared the devs into releasing it later then scheduled. It was supposed to come out this month.

I'm pretty sure this has so called "ghost" ironsights, what Rise of the Triad, Serious Sam3 and Shadow Warrior also had. Meaning that the game has ironsights, BUT you don't need to use them if you don't want to (like i don't), and they make no difference if you use them or not. You shoot just as accurately from the hip as with sights. In otherwords, they're a gimmick, which are there just so that some console/CoD noobs could get into the game also.

@Garm31  It's funny cause you replied twice to your own comment. Guess you're tripolar. Lovely.
