Our Daily Beard

Good news, everyone!

Well, it is if you like games about shooting Nazis.

It’s okay to murder them with aplomb- they’re Nazis!

Anyway, yes, B-theds has announced their next big thang:

Wolfenstein: The New Order.

W:TNO is due for release in the fourth quarter of 2013 and being developed by MachineGames, a veteran studio apparently. I know some of them worked on the Riddick titles, so that’s cool.

Obviously, Wolfenstein is a big title, simply because of the fact that the franchise was among those that gave birth to the FPS. The last game was good, so let’s hope this is too. Deets are thin on the ground so far, but figuratively I’ll keep my eyes peeled.

W:TNO will be on the big three platforms and ‘next generation consoles’, which is a little vague- could it really be on the new gens?

“We are excited to bring a new chapter of Wolfenstein to gamers everywhere,” said Jens Matthies, creative director at MachineGames, as he charged headfirst into horse. “As fans of the series, working on this game is an honor, and our team is driven to create an unforgettable action-adventure experience that will make FPS fans proud.”

Jens, as the proud owner of a name that implies that he’s actually several women, has my bearded seal of approval.
