Wolfenstein: The New Order Launch Trailer Sets The Scene Perfectly

Wolfenstein: The New Order is almost upon us and to celebrate the game's impending release, Bethesda Softworks has released the game's launch trailer.

The game represents quite a change for the franchise. Not only will it revert back to being a single-player only game, it is also the first time since 1992 that id Software won't be involved with the game's development. That mantle has been passed to MachineGames, who are still making good use of id Tech 5.

The game takes placed in 1960 and sees an alternate reality play out where the Third Reich ended up winning World War II. Classic protagonist BJ Blazkowicz returns and it's his job once again to save the world from Nazi rule.

Everyone who pre-orders the game between now and release (the 20th of May, 2014) will also gain access to the DOOM beta, which is quite a nice perk.

Entitled "House of the Rising Sun", the launch trailer for Wolfenstein: The New Order has quite a lot of dialogue to set the scene. After that, it goes into a lovely montage of Nazi killing, all while an interesting rendition of the classic song from The Animals plays out.

Wolfenstein: The New Order will be releasing on the PS4, Xbox One and PC. However, it will also be seeing a release at the same time on the PS3 and Xbox 360.
