Almost Certainly Being Built With id Tech 5
Bethesda Softworks have announced a new instalment in the Wolfenstein franchise, that will emerge in Q4 2013.
Wolfenstein: The New Order is "an action-adventure shooter" being developed by MachineGames, a studio made of a number of seasoned industry veterans, many of whom used to be key staffers at Starbreeze.
"We are excited to bring a new chapter of Wolfenstein to gamers everywhere,” said Jens Matthies, creative director at MachineGames. “As fans of the series, working on this game is an honor, and our team is driven to create an unforgettable action-adventure experience that will make FPS fans proud.”
Large bundles of cash have no doubt been exchanged and thus Gamespot will be dribbling out exclusive tidbits on the game from tomorrow, we are pretty damn sure that the game is being built with idTech 5 given that MachineGames' site reported that the studio was at work on an unannounced (at the time) game using the robust engine.
You can check out the announcement trailer here, and Gamespot have revealed that "gamers play as the familiar American war hero B.J. Blazkowicz and are tasked with launching an 'impossible counter-offensive' against the Nazi powers that have taken over the world.
"Set in Europe, The New Order will have players infiltrating Nazi strongholds and battling legions of enemies, while taking control of 'super weapons' that the Nazis have used to dominate earth--"and beyond."
