Nazis have taken over the world. Launch your counter-offensive.

Following yesterday’s tease, Bethesda Softworks has announced Wolfenstein: The New Order, an action-adventure shooter in development at MachinGames for release on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, and next-generation consoles in Q4 2013.

A “reimagining of the franchise,” The New Order promises a “grippling and dramatic experience” from a studi of developers “known for creating compelling” and “story-driven” games.

The game is set in 1960s Europe after the Nazis won World War II. Players step in the shoes of American war hero B.J. Blazkowicz, who is tasked with launching an “impossible counter-offensive’ against the Nazio powers that have taken over the world by infiltrating Nazi strongholds, battling legions of enemies, and taking control of Nazi-made “super weapons.”

“We are excited to bring a new chapter of Wolfenstein to gamers everywhere,” said Jens Matthies, creative director at MachineGames. “As fans of the series, working on this game is an honor, and our team is driven to create an unforgettable action-adventure experience that will make FPS fans proud.”

      What difference does it make? It’s still a shooter and it looks like this is how 8th gen will be.Nothing but a giant repeat of 7th gen.

      Says FPS in the article.

      After judging SMT 4 by it’s battle system you’re now judging entire games by their genre. I’ll admit, I’m not interested, but I’m not sure I can agree with you judging the game solely by its genre, since it’s not like you knew anything else about this game or else you would’ve already known it was a FPS.

    Can’t wait to get it in a Steam sale for $20 or less.

    This is what I called the teases for The Evil Within being, but I guess I was a bit early.

    No interest in Wolfenstein, but having some of the fine folks behind The Darkness involved, well, that’s enough to get my attention.

    Really liking the vibe of the trailer, sweet use of All Along the Watchtower (though, for my money, not as cool as the way BSG used it).

    Really guys? You’re going to re-imagine Wolfenstein AGAIN?? For like the fourth time? And instead of being badass Indiana Jones-Wolfenstein you’re going to be generic Peace Walker/Killzone Wolfenstein.

    Also, teaser announcement with no gameplay. Only big companies like Bethesda can get away with this. They get you excited for a game that possibly won’t come out for years, to the game’s detriment, while the product itself stews away and warps and rots behind the scenes. Rein in your developers, Bethesda. Show us an actual game.

    Seriously the last wolfenstein sucked beyond compare. I cant imagine how a swedish studio, how outsourcing this title will change anything.
    “Return to” was pretty cool. Just keep your greedy fingers off the classics. thx
