"Before the 'New Order', there was... 'The Old Blood'." During GDC, Bethesda announced that MachineGames will be releasing a prequel "to everyone’s favorite Nazi-blasting first-person shooter of 2014" (do zombie games count or something?): Wolfenstein: The New Order. And based on the trailer, it looks awesome. The Old Blood acts like an expansion, but a standalone one (much like how Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon worked). It'll be available for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, and costs the same for each: $19.99. At least for now, this is going to be a download-only game. Assuming the role once again...

Bethesda Softworks is prepping a new title in the Wolfenstein series that pits the franchise's hero, B.J. Blazkowicz, against an alternate-history version of the post World War II era in which the Nazis, not the Allies, were ultimately victorious.

As the Inquirer reports, a Wolfenstein movie could be in the works. I wasn't really expecting this to be turned into a movie, though out of all the video games to do a movie on, this one isn't that bad. Here's hoping we don't see 'Sgt. Carmack' jokes."Todd Hollenshead, id's CEO, says, "I think it could make a very interesting film." He's probably right. Nazis are some of the best villains Hollywood has to offer"... Read more...
