Keep the love alive for one of the franchises that defined the genre on a beefed up mech-nazi killing rampage.
Bethesda have been putting some effort into fleshing out the alternative, ‘this is what could of happened if Hitler had won’ scenario behind Wolfenstein: The New Order. Firstly we saw some modified images: an A-bomb going off in New York and a Nazi moon-landing. Then a soundtrack of Teutonic reworkings of 60s classics surfaced.
While this is a straight up FPS romper-stomper early teases of the gameplay give hints to some half-decent voice parts (not including German accents) and a dark industrial setting that gives a consistent depth of tone to the proceedings.
Maybe the new Wolfenstein game will have more to get your teeth into over and above the usual, ‘shoot bad-guys with overpowered weapons’ bit, but this is Wolfenstein and seeing the franchise getting pumped full of steroids for the 8th generation is gratifying enough.
