Wolftenstein: The New Order Delivers With Another Amusing Trailer

By Ishaan . April 29, 2014 . 12:00pm


Bethesda Softworks have shared an amusing new trailer for Wolfenstein: The New Order, highlighting the differences between tactical and direct approaches in the game.


The stealthy approach features silenced shots, picking locks, scoping enemies out from a distance and taking them out quietly. The other shows the exact same sequence being played in a much more maniacal fashion, with the player dual-wielding a pair of rifles and lobbing grenades at enemies.


Wolfenstein: The New Order is being developed by Machine Games, and is in development for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. It takes place in an alternate version of the 1960s, where the Nazis have won the war.


The game will be released on May 20th in the U.S. and May 23rd in Europe.

    Looks not too bad. Kinda old fashioned FPS feeling. I think Best Buy has a get $20 credit offer for this. I might pick it up if that’s the case.

  • EtroAnime

    This looks so comical not in a bad way but I am still not sure this is something I would buy day one.

  • Pretty interested in this on account of being a big fan of the Riddick and Darkness games. I’ll probably pick it up once it goes down in price.

    Funny that just today I started replaying Wolfenstein 3D. Maybe I’ll play this one in 20 years. On my phone.

    One of the games I’m very looking forward to this year.

    Giving the players option to approach objectives in FPS games is really nice. I wish single-player campaigns in modern FPS always had this.

    And wow, dual-wielding auto-shotguns looked so awesome but dual-wielding sniper rifles? That’s so over-the-top.

  • I’m hopeful for this. But something seems… off. Something seems simplistic & repetitive. It gives me a Singularity vibe… and Singularity was NOT good (which is a shame).

    I hope I’m wrong. There’s Riddick DNA in this, thanks to the ex-Starbreeze guys at Machine Games. I love the alternate take on WWII. And I’m sooo happy to see them offering up stealth or old-school-inspired “mayhem” gameplay as you see fit.

    I just gotta wait for reviews & videos for this one. It doesn’t look great to me so far. I see what it does and think, alternatively, Killzone or Far Cry does it better. I don’t think I’ve ever thought Killzone did anything better than another FPS.

    I mean, when it comes to re-imagining and trying to make an old-school shooter franchise relevant again, it’s really had to live up to how well Shadow Warrior did it last year. This doesn’t look anywhere near as unabashedly fun, or visually interesting, as that game was.

    And I’m super not sold on the “Doom Beta” thing either. I just have a morbid curiosity about it, really – doesn’t make me want to pre-order this. Makes it sound like the next Doom will be a) another reboot and b) multiplayer only. Which, man, I hope both those are untrue. A “shared world” game like Destiny though? That could actually be pretty cool for Doom.

    Have to admit, I love the songs and the mood this game builds. I wonder what it says about me that I’m more interested in the soundtrack than the game though, and if they took already existing songs and repurposed them for this game, or if it’s all written “in-game”, music that exists in this alternate history.

  • DesmaX

    I liked the one on PS3 more than I though I would.

    I would check this one out

  • Sav

    fuck yeah.

  • I have to say the option to have no online is interesting me more as all the effort has gone into a single player experience,

    Got too many games in May =?

  • passthegrenadeplease

    Everytime I hear about this game, the more i’m impressed by it. I really hope the game doesn’t end up a disappointment as i’m totally looking forward to it. There doesn’t seem to be that much interesting on the horizon but this definitely looks like a good contender to whet my appetite until something worthwhile releases, here’s hoping they don’t drop the ball.
