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.
