It's 'Stealth vs Mayhem' in latest Wolfenstein: The New Order trailer

9:00 AM on 04.29.2014 // Brittany Vincent

I will not apologize for the following wordplay

Wolfenstein: The New Order’s new trailer is out, and the good folks at Bethesda play the same segment twice for our amusement: the first, a little like Hitman, and the second time, like Serious Sam. From the moment I started watching I was super pumped as an unidentified old man, who I will affectionately refer to as Grampy, kicked off the action by shooting a Nazi bastard in the face. Ludicrous gibs!

Silencers, knives, and sniper rifles will assist players who wish to be stealthy in picking off Nazis one at a time. Multiple entry points to objectives seems to point to a much more strategic and tactical design then I had anticipated. It’s a far cry from Modern Warfare in some of those segments, but not so much that it should receive a medal of honor just yet. This is truly the path for soldiers of fortune.

Of course, if you’re a traditionalist, you can go in with guns blazing and commence Operation: Bodycount. Oh, what a selection you have at your fingertips! Pistols, assault rifles, automatic shotguns, grenades, and more abound. From the trailer it seems as all these weapons are capable of being dual-wielded, perhaps sacrificing the ability to use sights for raw destructive capability. Also, Nazis! I still really want to give this game a whirl.
