There was a time when Nazis were almost as common an enemy as zombies. But the first-person shooter genre moved past the World War II phase and now we have more modern, authentic shooters. Therefore, when Wolfenstein: The New Order comes out next year, it will almost feel nostalgic to take on those pesky Nazis again. It should also be fun to once again step into the boots of William “BJ” Blazkowicz, who awakes from a 15-year coma and finds that the Nazis have won. Their amazing technological prowess rocketed them to victory, but they gotta be brought down somehow.

The story takes on a dark, comic-style narrative, which probably won’t take itself too seriously. Blazkowicz will likely drop more than a few cheesy one-liners during the course of his new adventure, and we really have to giggle at some of the insane mechs and crazy advanced machinery on display in the game. BJ is up against it but thankfully, he’ll be armed with a wide assortment of extremely potent weapons, strong enough to eliminate even the biggest robots the Nazis have at their disposal. Developer MachineGames should give the game a wide variety of settings, too, as we’ll be exploring Nazi-dominated regions all over the world.
