Train2Game News New Wolfenstein released

WolfensteinBethesda Softworks, a ZeniMax Media company, today announced that Wolfenstein: The New Order, the first-person action-adventure shooter, is now available in North America, Europe and Australia.

Wolfenstein: The New Order, a reimagining of the franchise widely credited for helping establish the first-person shooter genre, is available for Xbox One and Xbox 360 video game and entertainment systems from Microsoft, PlayStation4 and PlayStation3 computer entertainment systems, and Windows PC.

Developed by MachineGames, a studio comprised of a seasoned group of developers recognized for their work creating critically-acclaimed story-driven games, Wolfenstein: The New Order offers a deep game narrative packed with action, adventure and first-person combat.

Set in an alternate version of the 1960s, players take on the role of war hero B.J. Blazkowicz. After awakening from a 14-year coma he discovers that the Nazi’s, armed with a mysterious advanced technology, have won World War II, and now rule the world with an iron fist. With the help of a small group of resistance fighters, players trek across Europe on a personal mission to bring down the Nazi war machine that has conquered Earth – and beyond.

“At MachineGames we grew up playing Wolfenstein 3D and developing Wolfenstein: The New Order has been an honor and is our love letter to id Software,” said Jens Matthies, creative director at MachineGames. “We set out to create an immersive, story-driven game that captures the incredible action and excitement the series is known for. We’re thrilled that players can now meet the unforgettable cast of characters we created and hope they have as much fun playing the game as we did making it.”

You can enjoy the trailer for the game below

Select players chosen from the pool of registrants will get their first chance to dive into the multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) PC game from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developed by Turbine. You can still sign-up for the beta if you want to be part of the fun.

Until May 31, Pokémon Trainers across the country can look to the sky as not one, but two strains of the Mythical DNA Pokémon Deoxys make a rare return trip from outer space to players of both the Pokémon video games and official Trading Card Game (TCG). Players of Pokémon Black 2 or Pokémon White 2 can add Deoxys to their Pokédex in a special distribution event via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service, while TCG players and collectors can find the new Pokémon TCG: Black & White — Plasma Freeze expansion, which includes the powerful Deoxys-EX card, at retail stores nationwide.

Finally, Warner Bros. and NetherRealm have unleashed a trailer showing Batgirl pummeling the Joker. This is for the announcement that Batgirl will be the next DLC character for Injustice: Gods Among Us. While there are a lot of Batman characters in Injustice already, if they’re going to include another “Bat” character, it’s only fitting they include Batgirl. Batgirl is available to buy as a standalone character for 400 MS points and £3.99 on PSN. No release date has been announced yet. You can view Batgirls beating on the Man that crippled her in the following trailer. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cq719Rp17B8
