Bethesda and MachineGames recently released a gameplay segment for the upcoming Wolfenstein: The New Order, showing off a rather tense moment between B.J. and one of the game's deadliest villains. Yes, this would be that train sequence we've heard so much about up until now.
While on a train to Berlin, B.J. Blazkowicz finds himself face to face with the infamous Frau Engel, a sinister woman who delights in tormenting others. She stops B.J. and proposes they play a game, an Ayran psych test of sorts. Alongside her is Bubi, her pretty-boy assistant. Honestly, the two of them are so perfect for each other.
We've actually seen this particular part of the game before, and learned the outcome of the test is actually determined by the player. In the video, we see B.J. go for the gun in front of him, rather than continue playing along with Frau Engel. Too bad there's a hostile robot standing right there.

the OST's for the wolfenstein series are pretty good but definitely different in each game.
wolfenstein 3D had an typical arcade game soundtrack of that time with a bit of a western military theme. return to castle wolfenstein was more military themed with a bit of fear and darkness in it. wolfenstein 2009 on the other hand is adventure mixed with mystery very much like indiana jones and i wouldn't be surprised if they got the game's music inspiration from there.
i happen to have the soundtracks for these games myself but you guys can listen them on youtube.

All the music in Wolfenstein you've hard, bluexy? Must be some amazing music..
I think I'll pick this up. Last Wolfenstein I played was Return to Castle Wolfenstein on PS2, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Never got Wolfy for PS3, but this looks like a buy.

THM I believe this footage is actually from the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 version of the game. PC/PlayStation 4/Xbox One was much higher fidelity, unless they've downgraded it since I last played.

I was able to play this portion of the game twice at preview events and I can confirm S-I-E's comments. The test is to see whether you'll go for the gun. Picking the cards themselves, it doens't matter which ones, result in a success scenario.
I never actually picked the gun, so it's good to see Frau Engel actually getting shot at for once. That lady... oh I can't wait to play this full level.
PS: All of the music in Wolfenstein that I've hard is just as incredible.

those cards you see are part of a common emotional/personality test but with a very sadistical twist. in the end she's bluffing about finding out if you are a traitor with the cards. to have accurate results with these you need many more cards/questions for that to receive an accurate result and then you still wouldn't know whose side he'd be on.
might be already obvious but in any case her way to determine if blazkowicz is a real nazi or not is to pressurise and intimidate him so much as seen in the short film to make him believe that his only chance of survival is to grab the gun, and that gun is deliberately placed by her inside his reach to stimulate impulsive reactions.
that's some quality hannibal the cannibal stuff right there. might pick this one up.
