Bethesda gave us a few gifts today, but before we get into the really exciting bit, the Nazi robots and explosions extravaganza that is Wolfenstein: The New Order has a release date, and that date is soon. May 20, to be exact.
Much like Wolfenstein, this announcement came bundled with news on Doom 4. It sounds as if the game finally found a soul, because Bethesda has confirmed that pre-orders of The New Order will include beta access for the next — and scarily silent — entry in the Doom franchise.

In this brand Nazi-spanking new trailer for Wolfenstein: The New Order, bombs drop, stuff goes boom, and a man with a really deep voice narrates the whole thing. Unfortunately, this is mostly live-action, so you won’t see much of the game until it switches to gameplay at around the 1:30 mark. It looks… gritty. I’m wondering how much of the supernatural element will translate to The New Order, if any. That’s always been my favorite thing about the Wolfenstein series. Check out the new trailer after the break. READ MORE
While it was announced literally 6 years ago that Panorama Media and producer Samuel Hadida had tapped Roger Avary (Pulp Fiction, Silent Hill) to write a feature adaptation of the cult videogame Castle Wolfenstein, it’s now reported, via Variety, that he will also direct. Talks with U.S. distributors are already underway. The action-adventure story follows a young U.S. Army Captain and a British Special Agent on a top secret mission to Castle Wolfenstein, where Hitler will be in attendance for the unveiling of a new secret weapon. After reaching the Castle, our heroes are confronted with Himmler’s SS Paranormal Division and must fight, not only for their survival, but for a mission that could alter the course of WWII.
They also write that Lionsgate has hired Francis Lawrence to direct the final two The Hunger Games films with Danny Strong writing and Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth starring. Lawrence is currently directing The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the second movie in the franchise. Lionsgate decided in July to split Mockingjay, the final book in the Suzanne Collins book trilogy, into two parts. That tome centers focus on Katniss Everdeen’s journey as she leads a rebellion against the ruling Capitol in the dystopian North America of the future as Everdeen is convinced to become “the Mockingjay” as a symbol of the rebellion. Catching Fire will open Nov. 22, 2013. Mockingjay Part 1 opens a year later on Nov. 21 and the final film will be released on Nov. 20, 2015.
Dead Pixels Editor and all around rad dude, Burnthebluesky, just sent me the last motion comic for Wolfenstein. The game came out last week and it seems to be pretty decent. Motion comics are becoming pretty popular…watch the video below and learn why. READ MORE
Some big worries with a lot of games that were hits back years ago that are brought back and remade are, will it be a totally new game? Will they throwback to the original? Is it going to be totally different but just bare the same name? It’s true, a lot of games that are brought back to life should be just as quickly buried. Same goes for many video games made into movies. From this behind the scenes video for the new Wolfenstein, I’m getting a good vibe. They are definitely making sure they keep it real, while keeping it fresh. Check it out below.
