MachineGames’ upcoming Wolfenstein: The New Order looks to be one of this year’s premier first-person shooters. The fresh take on the venerable Wolfenstein series has given fans countless reasons to be excited for the game’s May release. From over-the-top violence to intense dramatic moments, Wolfenstein: The New Order promises to be a non-stop thrill ride once released.

A new trailer for The New Order released today details the numerous ways that players will be able to deal with their Nazi problem while making progress through the game. The aptly titled ‘Stealth vs. Mayhem’ trailer shows these two different approaches to a single situation.

After a great opening sequence involving a dead Nazi, a shotgun and a classic pickup truck, viewers are given a taste of the more subtle way to removing foes in the way. The stealthy method features brutal knife kills and silenced pistol headshots as The New Order’s protagonist, B.J. Blazkowicz becomes one with the shadows and takes out Nazis unseen.

The second path, as seen in the video, is a much more chaotic one. Instead of choosing the go in silently, the player instead arms himself with two automatic shotguns and proceeds to run into the fray. What comes next is nothing short of magical as limbs, organs and spent shells quickly begin to litter the floor. The New Order’s emphasis on violence is put on full display in the trailer, causing viewers to watch with grim fascination.

Seeing two different, but highly effective methods of moving through areas in Wolfenstein: The New Order in this trailer is a great sign of things to come. Incorporating numerous viable tactics is a sure-fire way to interest gamers of all different tastes. Dynamic gameplay such as the content featured in the trailer further establishes that when it comes to FPS titles releasing this year, Wolfenstein: The New Order has a leg up on the competition.
