As expected, the game will take place during the Second World War, mixed up with a bit of fictional. The main character part will go once again to OSA agent BJ Blazkowicz, always ready to go against the Nazi forces and save the world eventually.

Both Activision and id have been rather vague on the subject:

“players […] are thrust into the unknown and unexpected to battle against combat troops, otherworldly forces, and the dark science created by a supernatural Nazi force hell-bent on world domination. Wolfenstein offers players an action-packed experience as they investigate the powers of a dark parallel dimension, join with resistance forces, and employ an arsenal of conventional and otherworldly weapons in attempts to annihilate the Nazi war machine.”

The game will feature a full arsenal of conventional and supernatural weapons, class-based team objective multiplayer and release plans for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
