Wolfenstein: The New Order E3 trailer

Bring down the Third Reich in the series reboot later this year

Bethesda has sent over the E3 trailer for Wolfenstein: The New Order

Announced in early May and set for release in Q4 on Xbox One, PS4, PC, Xbox 360 and PC, New Order takes place in 1960 in an alternate reality where the Nazis won World War II.

Players take on the role of American war hero B.J. Blazkowicz and are tasked with launching an "impossible counter-offensive" against the Nazi powers who have taken over the world.

The title is developed by Swedish outfit MachineGames, a studio comprised of former key employees at Starbreeze.

In our first Wolfenstein: The New Order preview, we wrote: "Variety will be important for Wolfenstein. The combat is entertaining, but it doesn't feel like there's enough meat there to last the length of an entire game.

"Yet if the developers keep throwing interesting locations, characters, story moments, and puzzles at us, it won't matter. We've only had a brief glimpse of this Nazi-ruled 1960s, but we already love it. Unlike the bland 2009 reboot, BJ's next-gen debut is bursting with character and old school charm.
