Wolfenstein: The New Order is an upcoming first-person shooter video game in development by MachineGames to be published by Bethesda Softworks for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows. The game takes place during the 1960's 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. Some 14 years after the events of Wolfenstein, famed Blazkowicz has suffered from amnesia he received at the height of the war due to a secret mission gone awry. For the last few decades he has resided in an asylum. After escaping, he finds a harsh new world controlled by a more advanced "old" enemy.
