Bethesda and MachineGames have released a new video for forthcoming alternate history shooter Wolfenstein: The New Order, displaying a rather tense scene on a train.
I can’t say I was expecting to be rather impressed at the writing and scripting for a scene from a Wolfenstein game today, but it turns out that the four-minute scene on display in this video is something a bit special. It sees BJ Blazkowicz have a train-based encounter with Frau Engel, a Nazi officer who wants him to undertake a little test. And, uh… yeah. It’s good. In fact, it’s the sort of scene I sort of wish I hadn’t seen until playing the game itself because it would’ve been quite a wonderful thing to experience for the first time in-game, but oh well. Maybe there’ll be more like this!
You can give it a watch below, as well as have a look at a brief video interview with Tommy Tordsson Björk, the narrative designer responsible for the scene in question.
Wolfenstein: The New Order is due out 23 May.Related to this article

When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning 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.
