If Doom is the grandfather of first-person shooters, then Wolfenstein is the weird uncle who spends all his time in a bath robe and dives on the floor whenever there's a loud noise.
And now that weird uncle makes a return to the gaming universe with Wolfenstein: The New Order
. It's set to hit in Q4 of this year for the Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and next generation consoles. And unless these screenshots were generated by some Nazi techno-sorcery futurism, Wolfenstein: The New Order
is shaping up to look fantastic.
Also, there something called a Panzerhund in it. For those of you not familiar with German, or WWII, that translates to "tank dog." Based on the screens, I'd say that's as cool as it sounds.
