Robot Nazis, how can those two words not evoke some form of excitement? Swedish devs MachineGames are planning to capitalize on said premise with their 1960’s set shooter Wolfenstein: The New Order. Replace the hippies with the gestapo and Nixon with Mecha-Hitler and they may be onto a winner.
Wolfenstein: The New Order will be the 9th iteration of the series, taking place as a sequel to the 2009 Wolfenstein game. While the 2009 game wasn’t a particularly stand-out game, hopefully New Order can return a little of the series long-lost prestige. As the creator of the FPS genre it has a certain standard to uphold, a standard which it has failed to do in the past.
Take a look at these new screenshots and make your own mind up about how the game is turning out so far:
Wolfenstein: The New Order is predicted to come out in 2012 on PS3, Xbox 360 and Windows as well as the next-gen PS4 and Xbox One.
