The return of William "B.J." Blazkowicz moves the action to American soil, now under the control of the Nazi War Machine. Which has grown to now include high tech warships of the aerial variety, assassin droids, attack dogs, secret underground bases, and a love for strawberry milkshakes.
At a recent hand-on event we got to spend a few hours with a pre-release build of the game, and yeah, its looking good. Very good. If you were a fan of The New Order then you'll want to check this out.
Starting out on a sunny day, an undercover William "B.J." Blazkowicz is on his way to a local diner to make contact with a fellow Resistance member. With the ultimate goal being to gain access to a secret underground Nazi base. Although Wolfenstein is by no means an open-world game, the set dressing and scripted incidental detail of merely making your way from one side of town to the other speaks volume to the level of detail and care put into recreating this alternate 1961.
