Wolfenstein: The New Order is an upcoming first-person shooter video game being developed by MachineGames and published by Bethesda Softworks for the PC, Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and "next generation" video game consoles. The New Order is the ninth installment in the Wolfenstein series and is set for launch during Q4 2013. Developer MachineGames will utilize id Software's proprietary game engine id Tech 5.
The game takes place during 1960 in an alternate history world where the Nazis won World War II. Players assume the role of series protagonist William "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 and battling legions of enemies, while taking control of "super weapons" that the Nazis have used to dominate Earth.
