The war has ended, the world has lost, and the Nazi Regime has taken over the world. What is left to do after the events of 2014’s superhit, Wolfenstein: The New Order? Go backwards and show what happened in a standalone prequel to the critically-acclaimed first-person shooter action-adventure title. Starting on May 5th, 2015 for 19.99 USD, players can enjoy this new story set when it release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
This time players will get to enter the year of 1946 where the Nazi’s are making their final strides to win World War II and take on global domination. With this two-part mission set, players will take on the role of BJ Blazkowicz once more as he tries to fight against a rather Hellish Nazi prison where he must try and take on the maniacal prison warden that runs it in Part 1 – Rudi Jäger and the Den of Wolves – which will tell the story of this as he works on stealing the coordinates to General Deathshead’s compound. In part two, players will once more learn about Helga Von Schabb’s in the second story called “The Dark Secrets of Helga Von Schabbs”, which will take BJ to the city of Wulfburg, a location that the coordinates he had stolen will lead him. Learning about the recent findings of an obsessed Nazi archaeologist has found, BJ will attempt to stop him from exhuming mysterious artifacts that threaten the world with unleashing their dark and ancient power. Will BJ have what it takes to prevent this from happening? We’ll just have to wait and find out!
