Get Psyched: Wolfenstein release date; First details on DOOM beta

The FPS legend that started it all returns this May! Today we’re excited to announce that Wolfenstein: The New Order will release on Tuesday, May 20th in North America and throughout Europe on Friday, May 23rd. And as a bonus to everyone that pre-orders, we will be letting you into the beta for the next DOOM game!

Wolfenstein marks the first Bethesda-published game to arrive on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and will also be available on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. Developed by MachineGames, a studio comprised of a seasoned group of developers recognized for their work creating story-driven games, Wolfenstein: The New Order is a reimagining of the FPS franchise from id Software. The game offers a deep game narrative packed with action, adventure and first-person combat rendered in stunning detail with id® Software’s id Tech® 5 engine. And typical of a classic Wolfenstein game, expect plenty of hidden secrets, too.

Wolfenstein: The New Order once again centers around the series’ iconic war hero, B.J. Blazkowicz and this time faces alternate version of the 1960s in which the Nazis won World War II. As the only man capable of rewriting history, with the help of a small group of resistance fighters, infiltrate their most heavily guarded facilities, battle high-tech Nazi legions, and take control of super-weapons that have conquered the earth – and beyond. See the game in action on our official YouTube channel.

  1. Dear Pete Hines/Bethesda..

    I’m so ashamed of my previous behavior and attitude..regarding more information and the release date for WolfenStein: New Order..please accept my apology
    By the way I’m also a freelance sci-fi,horror story writer and I currently working on a prequel story to WolfenStein: The New Order. The prequel story takes place right after Raven Software’s Wolfenstein game ended. Please contact me if you guys are interested in getting any details about the prequel story.

    • Im glad that wasn’t lost on people. BJ talks exactly likes brad pitt and that last scene in the trailer had me thinking tarantino was directing the game

  2. I don’t buy boxes. I have over 75 games on Steam and just bought the Elder Scrolls Online Imperial edition within hours of it’s release.

    I don’t buy boxes, capiche?.

    • From our FAQ:

      “WILL THERE BE AN OPEN BETA FOR DOOM?

      Timing and availability of future beta programs for DOOM is to be determined. The only current way to ensure access is through pre-ordering Wolfenstein: The New Order. We will be providing more information on additional beta tests, if any, at a later time.”

  3. Kudos to Bethesda Softworks and MachineGames for coming up with an excellent fresh approach to this series and for keeping id software in the mix. You guys have a lot of class. Thank you

  4. Oh nice! I am pretty much bored already from constant Battlefield 4 andCOD4 so I can’t wait to try out something new! Thanks a lot for this post, it is an amazing thing to find out. I am very excited by this new release. Can’t wait to start gaming!

  5. Really can’t wait to see more of id Tech in action! Looks like Machinegames did a great job with the engine as well as Mr. Blaz.

  6. I hope there’s some timey wimey stuff and at the end of the game the timeline gets changed to the version of history that we know.
