Epic Holiday Gift for December 20th: Wolfenstein The New Order!

Nothing to get you into the Christmas spirit like killing nazis with oversized guns! Epic’s latest free game, Wolfenstein: The New Order, takes us to an alternate post-WW2 Earth where the Axis won, so we must make them lose. Let’s get into it!


The Basics

The Wolfenstein games are classics, and the progenitors of the First Person Shooter genre. The premise is simple: Kill nazis! The New Order takes that concept and expands upon it with an absolutely insane story and modern gameplay (at least by 2014 standards).

You play as U.S. special forces operative William “B.J.” Blazkowicz, fighting an alternate-history Nazi Germany that managed to win WW2. After being injured during a mission and being out of combat for quite a while, you pick up arms and fight nazis with advanced tech in various locations, including the Moon.

The gameplay is a classic FPS, with your player going trough various missions, most fairly linear, while blasting your enemies with oversized and ridiculous weaponry. You can dual-wield machine-guns, for Uncle Sam’s sake!


The game is free to claim only until tomorrow, roughly 23 and a half hours from now, so grab it while you can! Epic also likes to provide a hint for the next game to become free, so if you want to try decoding the following gift box, let us know what the next title may be:
