It was about plugging Nazis, kicking dogs, snatching gold and eating turkey dinners like a boss.
Wolfenstein 3D started it all. A first person shooter from ID Software, players were running around without the need for much of a story. It was about plugging Nazis, kicking dogs, snatching gold and eating turkey dinners like a boss. If you weren't trading 3x5 floppy discs in middle school back when the original dropped in 1992 you may have been introduced to all-American badass BJ in Return to Castle Wolfenstein. The must-own sequel to the classic dropped over a decade ago and although another Wolfenstein title was released since, it wasn't able to recapture the bloody glory of one man war against the darkest plots of the Third Reich.
To get you set for the newest addition to the series and the first to take place in an alternate history where the Nazis won the war and have stolen the promise of the future away from the free world. Here are your friends and foes.
Wolfenstein: The New Order drops on May 20 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC. Pre-ordering the game gets you access to the upcoming DOOM beta available only on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. You don't want to miss it.
