Wolfenstein: The New Order

Yesterday, Bethesda released a trailer to announce the latest installment in the Wolfenstein series, Wolfenstein: The New Order.

Here’s the trailer for your viewing pleasure:

As most people who grew up playing PC games, I’m a big fan of the series so a new installment is great news. And although the trailer is just mainly a concept trailer, there’s enough in here to already get me pumped. How do I love thee, Wolfenstein: The New Order announcement trailer? Let me count the ways.

  1. New Wolfenstein? check
  2. Bethesda is producing it? check
  3. Alternate history imagining (the Nazis have won WWII and taken over the world at the start of this game)? check
  4. Nazi war robots? check
  5. Nazi war robots and set in the 1960s? double check
  6. Grizzled veteran B.J. Blazkowicz informing the Nazis that their new death machines are no match for the good old fashioned American ass-kicking he’s about to deliver? check
  7. “They forgot about me.” check
  8. “All Along the Watchtower,” which is scientifically proven to make every trailer it is played in approximately 6 billion times better than it already is? check
  9. [not actually shown in the trailer, but] single-player only FPS? check, because hopefully this means the story will be balls-to-the-wall Nazi fighting with all the development time spent on the campaign
  10. One man taking on an entire planet of Nazismother fuckin’ check, y’all.

It’s obviously super early in the process, but I’m excited.
