The premise of Wolfenstein: The New Order is an alternate history where the Nazis won World War 2. Bethesda has released a new trailer showing off just how much things have changed in the game world of the 1960s, but the timing is a bit awkward with today being the 69th anniversary of D-Day.

Narrated by protagonist B.J. Blazkowicz, the video shows Nazis as the Beatles, a Nazi's "one small step" for Fascism, and a Fatman being dropped on New York City. Der Fuhrer also gets a bit of screen time. There is even some game play shown. Check it out for yourself if the coincidence of the trailer's release doesn't disturb you too much.

We got a look at the single-player-only game already, and it seems to hold true to the spirit of the series so far. It is being developed by MachineGames, made up of former Starbreeze vets. The game is scheduled to come out later this year for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

      Doesn't look bad, but the graphics look kinda dated. I don't mean the engine though, it's the artwork... seems kinda drab/generic.

      Also, why would the Nazis go to the moon? That was a peaceful scientific mission... either the Nazis eventually become peaceful and scientific, or they don't and thus wouldn't fund a moon mission.

        The US went to the moon to stick it to the Soviets. It wasn't exactly the rainbows and sunshine of human endeavour.

          Yeah the entire space program was about sticking it to the Soviets and demonstrating to each other that we could drop warheads anywhere someone wanted.

          Pretty much. There's a reason it was called the "Space Race".

      I kind of had to laugh at the disclaimer at the end. "Do not worry, Bethesda is not filled with Nazis!"

      It's actually a Mortyr sequel?

      I was oddly pleased that the heavy beats at the end didn't turn into yet another dubstep trailer :D
