It might be bombastic, over the top shooter action on the surface, but peel back a layer or two of gunplay and there’s a lot more to Wolfenstein: The New Order.
As I wrote in my preview a little while back, it pays to be stealthy and you can often find secret paths to help you get the drop on your enemies, but there’s also a great sense of pacing which sees those action packed highs mixed with much creepier and disturbing moments.
If you’d like to keep everything a surprise, close this page now, but if you need a little more convincing, the latest gameplay video showcases the clever psychological mind games that The New Order revels in. Won’t you come and sit down with Frau Engel for a moment?

Wolfenstein: The New Order is set for release in the EU on May 23rd, bringing the Doom 4 beta with it, as one of a handful of releases that’s going to make the final weeks of spring particularly busy for gamers.
There’s bound to be a soundtrack release too, which I’m quite looking forward to after the last few trailers.
