Just last week, Bethesda revealed an upcoming horror game, The Evil Within, but it seems that the studio has another trick up its sleeve with Wolfenstein: The New Order.
Developed by MachineGames, Wolfenstein: The New Order is set in an alternate version of 1960 where Nazi forces rule the world after a successful victory in World War II. Players will take on the role of William “B.J.” Blazkowicz in an attempt to take down the Nazis throughout Europe, using super-powered weapons to infiltrate Nazi compounds and destroy the enemy forces. Very little has been given in the way of gameplay details, but Bethesda is promising a one-of-a-kind single-player experience with a focus on action and adventure.
Jens Matthies, creative director at MachineGames, made the following statement:
We are excited to bring a new chapter of Wolfenstein to gamers everywhere… 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.
The project is being developed using id’s Tech 5 engine, which is the same engine being used in Bethesda’s upcoming The Evil Within. Wolfenstein: The New Order is set for release across all current-gen and next-gen platforms sometime at the end of this year.
