Wolfenstein: The New Order Detailed, Single-Player Only
Written Wednesday, May 08, 2013 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Set in an alternate 1960s in which the Nazis emerged victorious during World War II, Wolfenstein: The New Order sees the return of BJ Blazkowicz, following his imprisonment in an asylum having turned the minigun-wielding robo-Hitler to mush.
Developer MachineGames has revealed a bunch of details like this, including confirmation that the game will be resolutely single-player, with no multiplayer modes to speak of. The story itself will task Blazkowicz with taking on the Nazis, who thanks to a huge scientific and technological leap have been able to create devastating machinery like robo-dogs, drones and robotic troopers. "An army of steel and thunder."
What's more, the Nazis also won the space race, being the first to land on the moon in Wolfenstein: The New Order's alternate reality. Wolfenstein: The New Order will be an action-driven shooter, but will also feature exploration and puzzles to solve, with international destinations like catacombs in Berlin and Polish mountains to visit.
Check out the announcement trailer again below, if you haven't already. Wolfenstein: The New Order is slated for a Q4 2013 launch.
