There are four standard character classes to choose from, but, if you pre-order the game in-store at Future Shop or online at, you'll gain access to a brand new hero: the Malakhim Dark Assassin.

Wolfenstein: The New Order, It’s Do or Die - Review

Wolfenstein The New Order Title.jpg


The history of video games is certainly interesting, littered with amazing stories of success and failure.  Some games will go on to create huge franchises and live on way past their initial release or platforms lifespan. Games like Super Mario Bros and Pac-Man come to mind as they have lived on long enough to ingrain themselves solidly into pop culture. These games might be household names but they certainly didn’t re-invent anything at the time. One game that not only was a huge success but also created a whole new genre is Wolfenstein 3D. Its legacy lives on today in the latest game to grace the name, with Wolfenstein: The New Order.

2K Games' smash hit "role-playing shooter" franchise is making its triumphant return this fall with Borderlands: The Pre-sequel!
