Wolfenstein: The New Order announced for cross-gen platforms

Former Starbreeze developers heading up action-adventure shooter

Bethesda has announced Wolfenstein: The New Order, an action-adventure shooter slated for release in Q4 2013.


The game is being developed by MachineGames, a studio comprised of former key employees of Starbreeze, the developer behind the Chronicles of Riddick FPS games.

Set for release on Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and next generation consoles, New Order takes place in 1960 after the Nazis have won World War II, reports Gamespot.

Players again take the role of 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, battling enemies and taking control of "super weapons" that the Nazis have used to dominate earth - "and beyond."

Additional details about the game will be revealed later this week.

"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."

Bethesda parent company ZeniMax acquired MachineGames in November 2010.
