We’re pleased to announce that Wolfenstein: The New Order will now be launching simultaneously in North America, Europe and Australia on Tuesday, May 20, 2014 on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC!
Currently under development at MachineGames, Wolfenstein: The New Order, the first-person action-adventure shooter, reignites the franchise widely recognized for pioneering the first-person shooter genre. Set in the 1960s, the monstrous Nazi regime has used mysterious advanced technology to win World War II. They now rule the globe with an iron fist. Wolfenstein: The New Order sends you across Europe on a harrowing mission to bring down the Nazi war machine.
As an added bonus, everyone pre-ordering the game will be invited to access the DOOM beta with their copy of Wolfenstein: The New Order. For more information on the DOOM beta access pre-order bonus, as well as applicable terms and restrictions, please visit: www.wolfenstein.com/doom.
Since the launch of our North American merchandise store, we’ve received plenty of feedback from folks across the Atlantic hopeful for an online store with European distribution. Today we’re pleased to announce we’ve made that a reality.
Announced via a press release, we’re partnering with Level Up Wear (lvlp), who will sell premium apparel and merchandise at bethesda.levelupwear.com. Pre-ordering of items begins today and orders will begin shipping in mid-October.
If you’re lucky enough to be attending this year’s EuroGamer Expo, you’ll be able to purchase select items at Level Up Wear’s booth — conveniently located next to our booth for The Elder Scrolls Online!
In the slideshow above, check out some of the first items available for purchase, and you can learn more details in the press release below…
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Legendary Edition is now available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC in Europe. Legendary Edition includes the original game, official add-ons and all title updates including combat cameras and mounted combat.
Update: Hearthfire is now available PS3 to users in North America and European territories.
The English version of Hearthfire will be available for download on PSN later today in North America and will be available in English language European territories tomorrow. Like Dragonborn last week, it will be available for 50% off for one week.
Looking ahead to next week, we’re set to release the English version of Dawnguard for 50% off next week. Additionally we’ll be releasing Dragonborn, Hearthfire, and Dawnguard to French, Italian, German, and Spanish territories on Wednesday, February 27th. In preparation for release, we are releasing the 1.8 title update for these territories later today.
PAX Prime kicks off this week, and for many, it will be the first chance to play Dishonored. But what about folks wanting to play in Europe?
Fear not, as you’ll be able to play both Dishonored and DOOM 3 BFG Edition at this year’s Eurogamer Expo!
This year’s event runs September 27-30 at London’s Earls Court. As has been the case in previous years, we expect the 50,000+ person event to sell out. If you’re interested in attending, purchase your tickets soon.
Live in the UK? Below are details on special midnight launch events at GAME London on Oxford Street and gamestation Birmingham on New Street.
The first 250 people to join the queue at each store will receive a Skyrim goody bag, whilst the first 100 people in the queue will also receive a Skyrim strategy guide and Skyrim music CD.
Adding further excitement on the night, fans who turn up dressed in Skyrim cosplay will have the chance to win five special prizes! The Best Cosplay winner will receive an Xbox 360, free upgrade to the Skyrim Collector’s Edition, Skyrim t-shirts, Skyrim strategy guide, Skyrim music CD, and Skyrim goody bag. The first four runners up will also receive a free upgrade to the Skyrim Collector’s Edition, Skyrim t-shirts, Skyrim strategy guide, Skyrim music CD, and Skyrim goody bag.
In addition the goodies and costume contest, folks that visit GAME London on Oxford Street will have a chance to get a photo with a real-life Elder Scroll!
While RAGE doesn’t hit Europe until tomorrow, if you’re in or around London, you’ll see that the game is everywhere — on the streets, in the tube, on the front of magazines, and on your TV. Thankfully, I haven’t heard any reports of mutants running around the city.
By coincidence, the same week my travels bring me across the pond, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion 5th Anniversary Edition lands in Europe. Releasing on 23 September (and one day earlier in Australia), the game will be available on PS3 and 360 for £19.99/€29.99 and on PC for £14.99/€19.99.
