Wolfenstein: The New Order Announced

Bethesda Softworks announces Wolfenstein: The New Order, revealing that a new installment in id Software's seminal shooter series was the subject of their teasing yesterday, saying the game is coming to PCs as well as next-generation and last-generation (I'm working on spreading a new buzzphrase) consoles by the end of this year. They call the new game a "reimagining of this franchise," an "action-adventure" shooter in development at MachineGames, the Swedish developer formed by StarBreeze veterans that Bethesda acquired in 2010, so a tip of the hat goes to Polygon for getting the details right about this in a rumor they reported a couple of months ago. "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." Their announcement actually holds back the details to kiss a little GameSpot butt, as GameSpot has an announcement trailer and say they will be posting details all this week. Here's what they have on the game's setting:

The New Order is set in 1960 after the Nazis won World War II. Gamers play as the familiar American war hero B.J. Blazkowicz and are tasked with launching an "impossible counter-offensive" against the Nazi powers that have taken over the world.

Set in Europe, The New Order will have players infiltrating Nazi strongholds and battling legions of enemies, while taking control of "super weapons" that the Nazis have used to dominate earth--"and beyond," Bethesda teased.
