With Bethesda hard at work on the just-announced Wolfenstein: The New Order (and set to unveil the game in just a few days time at E3) a lot of folks are thrilled to see the future of the series. It’s also important to look into the past to see where the whole thing began and Bethesda is making it easy to do so.
The company recently re-released the original Wolfenstein 3D for PlayStation Network and Xbox Live. The game had come out before from Activision back in June 2009, but was removed when the rights reverted back to Zenimax Media. Bethesda has opted to re-release the game now with the new entry announced.
Best of all, the first-person shooter comes with a bargain price. You can download every bit of its Nazi killing business for only 400 Microsoft points ($4.99).
It’s a very good port of the original game, featuring quality graphics and sound taken straight from the 1992 release, as well as controls that feel just right with today’s controllers.
We’ll have more coverage on the new Wolfenstein in the months ahead, so be sure to check back!
