Wolfenstein: The New Order trailer ponders stealth against mayhem

Wolfenstein: The New Order trailer ponders stealth against mayhem
Wolfenstein The New Order - 02
This is probably not the stealthiest way this section could’ve been done.

Wolfenstein: The New Order is out in a month, so the trailer generation machine is kicking into high gear. The latest one from Bethesda showcases a couple of ways players can deal with a Nazi checkpoint in Poland.

You can go the “tactile” route (which I think is meant to be “tactical”, but oh well) and deal with the Nazis via throwing knives, silenced pistols, and throat-slitting. Alternatively, you can go the mayhem route, pull out two giant guns, and run around cackling while holding down both triggers.

I realise that trailers often mislead, but from everything I’ve seen, Wolfenstein: The New Order looks like it’s shaping up to be – at the very least – bloodily entertaining. Not long until we know for sure, though: it’s due out on 20 May.

    Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.

      thx for the news, sadly the embedded video of the trailer is not available worldwide, youtube says for me: ‘the uploader has not made this video available in your country’. I’m from Austria 😉

        Eep, that’s kind of annoying. Sorry about that!
