Although it's not grabbing the headlines, it could very well be one of the most anticipated shooters of the year.

And now, according to Joystiq, Activision has just announced that the Raven Software-developed Wolfenstein will release on August 4 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. Once again, you will assume the role of US soldier BJ Blazkowicz as he fights his way through Nazis and swarms of supernatural beasties. You may remember Return to Castle Wolfenstein and if you enjoyed that adventure, chances are, you're going to have a blast with this one. It was originally announced as a timed exclusive for the Xbox 360 but apparently, enough time passed and now it's going to launch simultaneously on the 360 and PS3, so that's good news. There aren't many FPSs out there that you have fighting Nazis and monsters at the same time but what the hell; we should be lumping those two things in together anyway, right? The media we've seen thus far has been plenty promising and we're just hoping it doesn't become another generic FPS that receives little more than a passing glance. I was a big fan of RtCW and I've been waiting for a Wolfenstein launch date for a while.

Provided Raven Software does their job, it's bound to be entertaining. Oh, and be on the lookout for some bad-ass weaponry, too!

I still have my 3.5" floppy System 7.1 Mac version of Wolfenstein 3D. Awesome stuff.

You don't have to worry about Raven b/c they usually deliver and will get the job done I'll bet my username on it;)

I never got around to playing the last one for ps2 and xbox. I don't even remember if there was a ps2 version. I was preoccupied with a number of good games at that time I'm sure.

Just saw Wolfenstein 3D for the Atari Jaguar at the local game store. Too bad I don't have a Jaguar. This game should be fun.

Incredible you are still able to pick up Jaguar titles. Do you guys think that legacy system based games still sell well… I mean are there people out there still collecting and picking up legacy software titles?

Q!

I was disappointed with the last one. Though it was kinda cool to fight Rob Zombie at the end lol. As much as I loved the original and it's expansion/sequel, I'm just not as hyped about Wolfenstein as I used to be. They need to stick with just Nazis and leave the supernatural out of it. Not to mention the plasma cannon that this one is supposed to have.

They should at the end have "In memory of Duke"

I saw some footage of this game and it looks cool, but I think they just took too long, most people will wait for a used game or price cut.
