Wolfenstein: The New Order spins a modern tale that explores an alternative history. The protagonist of Wolfenstein 3D, B.J. Blazkowicz has failed to assassinate the Fuhrer, allowing the Nazis to win World War II.

Europe, 1960. The war is over. And the Nazis are triumphant victors. Using unrelenting force and brutal intimidation, the Nazis have brought even the most powerful nations to their knees. The Nazi regime now rules the globe with an iron fist.

You are Captain B.J. Blazkowicz, the American War Hero. After emerging into this world of darkness, you must launch an impossible counter-offensive against the monstrous Nazi regime. Only you dare stand up against an unstoppable army of Nazi robots and hulking Super Soldiers. Only you can stop Deathshead. Only you can rewrite history.

History has changed in the House of the Rising Sun trailer, showcased by the German tone that has become embedded in the popular rock and roll song. The world is ruled by The Third Reich, a chilling fact that is consistent throughout the trailer. Wolfenstein: The New Order comes out on May 20 on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC.
