Wolfenstein: The New Order EU, AUS release dates brought forward for simultaneous launch

Europe and Australia are now getting Wolfenstein: The New Order on the same day North America does, after publisher Bethesda revised the regional release dates today. Australia and Europe were due to get the single-player shooter on May 22 and May 23 respectively, but the game is now launching in all three regions on May 20.

We'd like to think Bethesda announced/evilly laughed its plans for world domination from inside a chaingun-wielding mech suit - we've yet to see if a certain Fuhrer will return in MachineGames' take on the World War 2-themed series. What we do know is William "B.J." Blazkowicz is back as the gruff-voiced hero, and he's now trying to deal with an alternative post-WW2 scenario where the Nazis won and have the game's 1960s world shackled under their control. We also know The New Order is coming to Xbox One, PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC, and that pre-orders will receive a beta code for id Software's next Doom game.
