Considering B.J. Blazkowicz started his video game life as a gurning character portrait at the bottom of your screen, his transformation into a nuanced, relatable character – which continues at full pace in Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus – is symbolic of much of what made this title one of 2017’s best. Deftly...
Lock and load
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus now has a free trial out on the PlayStation Store. Get it downloaded and you can blast your way through the whole first level of the game. If you enjoy it enough, you can go ahead and buy the full thing, which will retain any progress that you've made. The tempting part about this is that the...
Liam's feeling conflicted
It’s hard to call Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus my most disappointing game of 2017 when Mass Effect Andromeda released just shy of nine months ago. But, if it wasn’t for that let-down of a space excursion, BJ Blazkowicz’s latest Nazi rampage would be taking that less than coveted prize. However, this...
And it's delicious
The follow-up to MachineGames’ acclaimed first-person shooter Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus has arrived to take out some Nazi tail, and reviews are beginning to trickle out like blood from protagonist B.J. Blazkowicz’s nose. We’ve got our strongest soldier Alex Stinton working his way through this one as we type, so...
Did you Nazi that coming?
We know Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is having a bit of fun with its occupied America setting, but fictional game show ‘German or Else’ sounds like something that we’d watch. Like, for real! There’s not much to say about the launch trailer for MachineGames’ sequel: it’s got huge firearms, even bigger biceps,...
In a wheelchair, no less
Take a look at most forms of media these days and you’ll notice a lot of familiar material getting the remaster, remake, and reboot treatment. Current media in general seems to be relying on the hits of the past a tad more so than usual, resulting in releases such as the recently chart-annihilating Crash Bandicoot N.Sane...
Bethesda's released the full version of that Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus gameplay clip that we saw earlier in the year. You know, the one with the creepy Nazi officer ordering a strawberry milkshake as protagonist BJ sits there in awkward silence. Yeah, that one. Obviously there's not that much more to see here, but it's a...
Oh, and there will likely be a Wolfenstein III
If DOOM and Titanfall 2 were signs of the first-person shooter genre's revitalization last year, then 2014's Wolfenstein: The New Order was the forerunner of this unexpected movement. With an impossibly ridiculous yet serious story that rivals the Metal Gear Solid series' tone and impeccable...
Flex those guns
If you didn’t catch the reveal trailer for Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, then we highly recommend putting your feet up and sitting through that now, because it’s bloody brilliant from start-to-finish. Of course, a little more has been revealed about the game in the aftermath of Bethesda’s press conference yesterday, with...
Releasing October on PS4
After a brief tease last year, Bethesda has today unveiled the next game in the Wolfenstein franchise at its E3 conference. The sequel, titled Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, takes place in the USA, and sees meaty franchise hero BJ Blazkowicz joining another Nazi resistance movement. The extended reveal trailer...
We did Nazi that coming
Surprise! Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus – a name which was teased all the way back in 2016 – will dual-wield the PlayStation 4 from 27th October. That’s according to a pulled product listing spotted on Amazon Germany, which sounds reasonably legit to us. Bethesda i
Shadow of the Colossus
A dismal Bethesda press conference concluded without any mention of the rumoured Wolfenstein 2 – or did it? Eagle-eyed fans spotted reference to The New Colossus in the media briefing's inspired DOS opening, with its release date blanked out. It's safe to assume that this is what Machine Games is working on – even though...
Bethesda's press conference at E3 2015 seemed like a fancy way of announcing Fallout 4, so we were taken aback when it revealed that it would be repeating the song and dance this year. But apparently it's got plenty to show, with rumours swirling that in addition to a remastered version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, it's also going to...
Return to Castle Wolfenstein
Wolfenstein: The New Order went under the radar when it hit shelves in mid-2014. The advertising portrayed it as a reboot that appeared over-the-top and generic. You shoot Nazis, and I've done that countless times already. What creativity could MachineGames jam into this rusty chamber of a tired premise that would...
Bad news for Adolf Hitler: it sounds like a Wolfenstein: The New Order sequel is in the works. It's hardly a surprise, as Machine Games knocked it out of the park with its previous entry and expansion The Old Blood, but it's nice to get a bit of confirmation – even if it doesn't come courtesy of an official source. Instead,...
We did Nazi this coming
As with Project CARS last week, Wolfenstein: The Old Blood sold best at UK retail on the PlayStation 4 by some margin. According to Chart-Track, 67 per cent of physical copies were sold on Sony's system, compared to just 27 per cent on the Xbox One. The game debuted in second on the UK sales charts, despite it deploying...
Night of the Living Führer
MachineGames has made a much quicker than expected return to the Wolfenstein series that it helped to re-popularise. After a number of years outside of the limelight, Wolfenstein: The New Order marked an exciting and exceptionally well constructed return to form for the franchise. Gone was the overbearing emphasis on...
If you're already excited for Wolfenstein: The Old Blood's release this week, then you'll probably want to see a bit more of the Nazi slaughtering simulator in action. Fortunately, you violent lot can dive into Castle Wolfenstein right now with the title's newest gameplay trailer. Featuring developer commentary over various gameplay clips,...
Enjoy shooting Nazis, do you? What about if they get back up afterwards thanks to some creepy undead magic? Well, chances are that you'll be putting plenty of fascist soldiers down for a second time in Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, as Bethesda's teasing the appearance of good old Nazi zombies in the standalone prequel. In a rather...
Howling for you
Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, a standalone prequel to last year's Wolfenstein: The New Order, releases in May, but if you were planning on gunning for a physical copy, you'll have to wait an extra week - at least in Europe. The downloadable version will launch on the 6th May, but you'll only find discs on store shelves from the 15th...
The new order
Budget expansion Wolfenstein: The Old Blood was announced to a rapturous reception earlier this week, and you'll be able to get your first taste of the PlayStation 4 prequel courtesy of a live PAX East 2015 demo today. Set to start at 15:30PM GMT (10:30AM EST/07:30AM PST), the livestream promises to debut the first footage from the...
Standalone DLC explores the past
This is a pleasant surprise isn't it? Wolfenstein: The New Order released on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 last year, and was met with a positive response from both critics and players. If you enjoyed the rather refined first-person shooter, then you'll be delighted to know that there's a standalone DLC coming...
A blast from the past
There's no doubt that Wolfenstein: The New Order is heavily inspired by its 1992 predecessor Wolfenstein 3D, which pioneered the shooter genre much like the legendary DOOM. But with next-gen graphics, deeper yet classic gunplay mechanics, and an intricately designed world where Nazis rule with bizarre technology, this game...
Back to the Führer
We may have been left to rot in a squalid prison camp while we wait for our opportunity to review Wolfenstein: The New Order, but at least we can round up the appraisals of others, right? Swedish developer MachineGames’ macabre debut has divided critics, who have peppered the web with bullets of both overbearing praise and...
We didn’t think that referees could get much more frightening than Pro Evolution Soccer 3 cover star Pierluigi Collina, but the official in this Wolfenstein: The New Order trailer gives the Italian stallion a real run for his money. In order to hammer home the idea of the upcoming PS4 and PS3 shooter’s alternate history universe, the...
Apologies if you haven't upgraded yet
We know next to nothing about the game, but Bethesda has confirmed that the recently revealed DOOM beta that’s set to ship alongside pre-orders of MachineGames’ series reboot Wolfenstein: The New Order will only be compatible with the PlayStation 4. That means that if you purchase the aforementioned title on...
1981 saw the release of Castle Wolfenstein, a very early Commodore 64 top-down stealth action title that found you angrily taking down the entire Nazi war machine singlehandedly via a series of small, pixelated rooms. Now, some thirty years after the series’ inception, Swedish studio MachineGames is looking to continue the veteran...
In another castle
Bethesda has confirmed that Machine Games’ super satisfying cinematic shooter Wolfenstein: The New Order will release on 20th May in North America and 23rd May in Europe – but that’s not the only surprise that it’s got in store. The publisher has revealed that purchasing the first-person franchise refresh will reward you...

Rocksteady's masterpiece Batman Arkham Asylum may go on to be many people's game of the year, but it all counts for nothing if it doesn't sell
Thankfully the title has topped the UK charts, offsetting Nintendo's Wii Sports Resort and resting a comfortable victor. The XBOX 360 version narrowly outsold the PS3 (with a 55% share) — we assume the exclusive Joker content on the PS3 version of the game..
So the Nazis have unlocked some kind of time warp into another world allowing them to become super-charged super warriors
Thankfully one American dude can save the day with a bunch of one-liners and presumably an arsenal of weapons. If it wasn't so utterly predictable and devoid of anything, we'd probably say this is an alright concept for a game. We'll give it the benefit of the doubt. Maybe.
.. If their game sells more than Madden 10 based on the NPDs. Knowing there is little to no chance in hell of such a thing ever occuring in this world, we think Manveer Heir's cash is safe. The software designer Tweeted the contest stating the stipulations that the offer only applies to sales in August and that you're limited to one copy per person. Haha. Of course, the chances of Wolfenstein..
