Rumortoid: Veil soon to be lifted on new Wolfenstein

If you’re anything like me, you’ve been waiting entirely too long to resume the role of B.J. Blazkowicz. Since the announcement of a new Wolfenstein title from id eons ago, all has been silent. According to CVG, that veil is soon to be lifted by next month’s edition of PC Gamer magazine.

It all started with a tiny little picture. It’s a huge pixilated headshot of B.J. from the original Wolfenstein 3D with the caption “He’s Back.” Interestingly, B.J. does look like he’s been shot a few times in the picture, as his nose is freshly wet with blood. Is this a foreshadowing of an injured Blazkowicz in the new Wolfenstein title, or is just an iconic image? Also, why must we be teased like this?

There are very few games out there that have captured me as much as Wolfenstein has. The playful abundance of swastika placement, Hitler boss fights, hidden passages, and super-awesome-wicked-nasty flamethrowers have helped define my experience with first-person shooters. Now, I can only sit back and pray to Thor that decent information finally comes out for this title.
