With next-gen fever now hitting its stride as we near the May 21 “Xbox 720” unveiling and continue to receive PS4 news from Sony, Bethesda Softworks today unveiled a new Wolfenstein game, Wolfenstein: The New Order, for both the PlayStation 4 and “Xbox 720 / Durango.” The game will also release for the current-gen PS3 and Xbox 360.
Wolfenstein: The New Order, an action-adventure shooter as you’d expect from the series, is slated to release in Q4 — presumably as a launch title for both next-gen consoles. The game is being developed by MachineGames, and with this new development blood we’ll see a game that will be “a reimagining of this franchise.”
The official announcement trailer can be seen over at GameSpot.
Wolfenstein: The New Order is scheduled for PC in addition to the Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 and next Xbox. There was no announcement of a Wii U version in the works.
“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.”
We hope to bring you more about Wolfenstein: The New Order, including hands-on impressions, from E3 next month.
