Wolfenstein: The New Order

May Release Date And Doom Beta Access

Yes. You read that correctly. Bethesda has announced that Wolfenstein: The New Order has a release date and that those who pre-order will also get something unexpected: access to the Doom beta.

Before you ask, we have no information on when the beta for the next Doom title will launch, but you can stay tuned here as information is released. The advertisement for beta access does appear on the boxes for last-gen and new-gen systems, though that isn't a guarantee that Id's new game is coming to older systems.

What we do know is that Wolfenstein: The New Order will be released on May 20. You’ll have your pick of five platforms: Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC.

This Wolfenstein takes BJ Blazkowicz from World War II into a 1960 ruled by the Nazis. For more on Wolfenstein: The New Order, check out our early look from E3 2013

  • Didn't see that coming.
  • That was unexpected.

  • What a pleasant surprise! For once.
  • Doom beta....gotta change my pants.
  • I know it was an atmospheric choice and whatever but I just hope DOOM actually has a gun mounted flashlight this time around. Seriously guns of the future guys...
  • What's a Doom?
  • Doom beta? Nice surprise. Just another reason for me to pick up Wolfenstein.

  • Doom beta? Nice surprise. Just another reason for me to pick up Wolfenstein.
  • What the! This is very interesting. Nice way to play that close to the chest Bethesda and Id!

  • I'm kind of astonished that Doom 4 is actually happening. I'd assumed that id was pretty much delegated to engine development.
  • !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • I hope that they go with the Classic Doom/Doom 2 style gameplay for mutiplayer, as in everything is a pick up and you start with your bare fist.
  • So how good is it gonna be? There's literally been zero news about this game until now.
  • Doom, you say? Count me in. I can see this beta access selling plenty of copies of Wolfenstein

  • I'm always excited for a new Wolfenstien, but I couldn't care less about a new Doom. I thought Doom 3 was horrible. Sure it was beautiful (when there was any light to see), but the game play was basically walk down dark hall and wait for monster closet to open, rinse and repeat.
  • WOW!! never expected that in a million years. at least this confirms that the game is still in the works i have been hoping that Doom 4 was still in development and didn't get lost in time and space as duke nukem once was.

  • New Doom? Yes please. I have the BFG edition of Doom 3 and I have almost conquered Hell with my friend. Can't seem to get into Doom 3 though...stupid monsters keep killing me.

  • Doom? Doom!? DOOM!?!?!!? DID SOMEONE SAY DOOM!?!?!!?

  • WTF? What Doom are they talking about? Are they talking about the Doom 4? Damnit Bethesda/id, you can't just say something like Doom Beta and not elaborate. AHHHH!
