The Wolfenstein series has been around for a long time. The very first game was released all the way back in 1981, but it really came into its own with the 1992 first-person shooter, Wolfenstein 3D. Since then, the series has seen many new entries, the most recent of which is Wolfenstein: The New Order, which was just released for the PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. It is a single-player first-person shooter with a heavy emphasis on its story, so you can explore a strong narrative with a unique setting.
The New Order once again places players in the shoes of longtime series protagonist B.J. Blazkowicz, but things are a little different this time. As the title hints at, this game is set in an alternate history where the Nazis won World War II. The year is 1960, and Blazkowicz must join the resistance in a Nazi-controlled world.
And how did the Nazis manage to take control of the world? Why, with their giant mechs, robot dogs, and cyborgs, of course!
Yes, a sudden advance in technology lies behind this twist in history, and the developers did their best to mix these science fiction elements in with fact to give everything an air of authenticity. For example, in the real world, the Nazis once made plans for a tank that weighed 1,000 metric tons. The project was cancelled, but little details like that lend plausibility to the humongous machines used by the Nazis in The New Order.
Of course, you can’t have technology like that without a mastermind behind it-series antagonist General Deathshead also returns, as sinister and threatening as ever. If you aren’t convinced by his name and role that he’s a nasty piece of work, you certainly will be after the game’s first major choice…
While Wolfenstein: The New Order is primarily a shooter, there are some elements of choice involved in its gameplay. Some of these choices affect both gameplay and story, which is why it’s recommended you play through the game twice to see both outcomes. You also have a choice when it comes to how you play, as The New Order is designed so that you can approach almost any situation with stealth, a full-on assault, or a mix of the two. Whether you like quiet kills in the darkness or the chaos of guns and explosions, you’ll be able to play the game the way you like. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to look around for collectibles.
Speaking of collectibles, if you’re having trouble finding them, it won’t be long before you can find cheat guides that will point you toward every one. On the other hand, if you’d rather ignore the collectibles and focus on killing Nazis, you can find hints and guides to help you with some of the trickier encounters. Add in Easter eggs and other surprises, and there’s a wide enough variety of Wolfenstein: The New Order cheats for you to find whatever it is you’re looking for.
So what are you waiting for? Pull up some cheats if you need the help, and get ready to kill Nazis and destroy their death machines as B.J. Blazkowicz in 1960.
