Wolfenstein: The New Order shows you the horror of concentration camps from the first-person

Chris Plante co-founded Polygon in 2012 and is now editor-in-chief. He co-hosts The Besties, is a board member of the Frida Cinema, and created NYU’s first games journalism course.

Wolfenstein: The New Order is the latest game in the Nazi shooting franchise. While it still has some of the pulpy tendencies of its predecessors, the new game takes its historical context seriously. The story is set in a grim alternate 1960 in which the Nazis won World War II.

This stage, which happens roughly halfway through the game, has the hero BJ Blazkowicz entering a labor camp undercover. His goal: to free a Jewish scientist named Set Roth.
