Wolfenstein: The New Order UK's second biggest launch of 2014

MachineGames' first-person shooter Wolfenstein: The New Order entered the UK all format chart this week in first place, Chart-Track figures have revealed.

It's the first game in the series to do so since the UK's all format chart began in 1997. 2001's Return to Castle Wolfenstein managed number 11. 2009's Wolfenstein reached number two.

Wolfenstein is the second biggest release of 2014, behind Respawn Entertainment's Titanfall. It accounted for a quarter of all software unit sales last week, and 36 per cent of all revenue. As always, it's worth noting Chart-Track does not count digital sales. At the time of publication Wolfenstein was the second top-selling game on Steam, behind Watch Dogs.

New Wolfenstein trailer referees football with a gun

Just over a month now until the brand new cross-gen Wolfenstein game arrives. To ramp up excitement, Bethesda has released a scene-setting trailer.

It starts with an innocent football match that turns ugly when the referee decides to shoot a player. It's indicative of the world turning "to s***" as a voice over tells us.

The Nazis are in power and you're what remains of the resistance, and you'll need your wits plus an awesome array of weaponry to blow to smithereens what lies ahead.

Doom beta for PC, PS4 and Xbox One only

Doom beta for PC, PS4 and Xbox One only

Still no word when it begins, though.

The Doom beta will be available for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One only, Bethesda has confirmed in an updated FAQ.

Currently the only way to get in on the beta is to pre-order upcoming shooter Wolfenstein: The New Order, which is available on PC, PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

So, if you pre-order on PS3 you get access to the PS4 Doom beta, Bethesda said. If you pre-order the Xbox 360 version you get in on the Xbox One beta. As you'd expect the PC version of Wolfenstein links with the PC version of the Doom beta.

Doom 4 is alive: pre-order Wolfenstein: The New Order to get in the beta

Doom 4 is alive: pre-order the new Wolfenstein game and you'll get in the beta, publisher Bethesda has announced.

There's little else on id Software's long in-development shooter. We had thought it was called Doom 4, but today Bethesda referenced it only as Doom, so perhaps it's a reboot of sorts.

MachineGames' Wolfenstein: The New Order is due out on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360 on 23rd May 2014, so the beta won't be available until some point after then.

Developer session for The Evil Within on Thursday 26th, streamed online.

Today we're happy to reveal that Bethesda Softworks is returning to the Eurogamer Expo in a big way this year, bringing along The Elder Scrolls Online and Wolfenstein: The New Order for their first playable outings in the UK.

30 seconds of Wolfenstein: The New Order gameplay in this new trailer

30 seconds of Wolfenstein: The New Order gameplay can be found in the new trailer, above.

Our first proper glimpse at the game begins at the one minute 30 second mark, and shows mechs, robot dogs, first-person shooting and a head stab. There's also a bit where a Nazi laughs maniacally.

The New Order, developed by MachineGames, is set in an alternate timeline that saw the Nazis win World War 2. The first two thirds of the trailer show how life is different because of it. There are some... interesting images in there, but remember:
