This timeline covers significant dates within the Wolfenstein series. The separate timelines include the classic games and the current set of games take place mostly within the time of World War II and afterward. All timelines depict fictional versions of WWII, mixing real time events and alternate events created for the series. Each timeline variant was introduced by different publishers, and developers and producers who have contributed to the series (these include Id Software, Apogee, Activision, FormGen, Gray Matter Interactive, Nerve Software, Splash Damage, Three Wave, Raster Production, Raven, Machine Games, Bethesda, and others). Even versions of the same game may have alternate endings or storylines depending on the version released or the platform its on so there isn't necessarily any straight consistent timeline, and in some cases even overlap, or alternate dates for the same events.

The timelines are included as in order of released games.

BackgroundEdit

Note: There are multiple versions of Wolfenstein 3D with various alternate game endings per the various versions of the games, in addition to alternate backstories in manuals and game guides (and additional material added in 'later games') which discuss various and often inconsistent details. So there isn't necessarily a 'consistent' 'Classic' timeline related to the game (but what is included below is based on the related material).

There is some overlap between Original Timeline, and the Wolfenstein/Doom/ID universe timeline (which is based on material up to Wolfenstein RPG and RTCW, but released mostly before Wolffenstein (2009). But again it is influenced by any inconsistencies involved with the various source material.

Wolfenstein (2009) can largely fit into the 'id timeline', but there maybe some further inconsistencies with the Classic Wolfenstein material in relationship to it. Wolfenstein 2009 itself was considered sort of a reboot to the series, or the start of an alternte timeine (much as Wolfenstein: The New Order went on to do again).

It's even more difficult to get to specific in incorporating older game details into the The New Order timeline, as its unclear how much of RTCW, Wolfenstein (2009), or older material was adapted into it, and the developers see it more as a 'reimagining' of the series, rather than a direct sequel to any previous game.

There maybe some dates that are included that were listed in the games, but the dates conflict with other dates given in the same game (or other games), these will be noted wherever possible.

More information can be read in the notes at the bottom of the article.

Other timelinesEdit

NotesEdit

  • The OSA is retconned into Wolfenstein 3D Platinum Edition on iOS (which includes both Wolfenstein 3D and Spear of Destiny) to tie them into the later games in the series (RTCW and Wolfenstein 2009).[72] The game also places events of Wolf3D during February, 1945 after RTCW, but before Wolfenstein (2009), and shows him in images combining his appearance in the 2009 game, with some his appearances in the older games. It also ties in the Commander Keen as part of his history as well under the Trivia section.

Dating of Spear of Destiny MissionsEdit

  • The exact date of Spear of Destiny is not specifically given but the hintbook may give some clues. While Mission 2 takes place a year after Mission 1.
    • Jean Moulin was an actual person who lived from 20 June 1899 – 8 July 1943. Thus this indicates that the game Spear of Destiny most likely took place between 1940 and 1943. The story appears to take place not long after France was conquered by the Third Reich, or Operation: Fall Rot in 1940. He did not join the resistance until possibly late 1940 to 1941. However, Jean Moulin did not become a resistance leader until 1941, and wasn't back in France until January 1942.
    • Mission 2 takes place over a year after Spear of Destiny. This would place it roughly 1943 (if Spear of Destiny took place in 1942.) If Spear of Destiny took place in early 1943, then Mission 2 would take place about 1944. However, in actual history the German uranium weapon testing was destroyed by American bombardment on 15 March 1945, to prevent the Russians from obtaining the German research.
    • Mission 3 is less clear, but appears to be towards the end of the war. Perhaps shortly before the Nocturnal Missions, or roughly between Episode 2-3 of Wolfenstein 3D (close to the Die Fuhrer Die event) when the Fuhrerbunker became more relevant. Or it might even take place after the original campaign when Hitler actually was in the Fuehrerbunker.
    • The Spear of Destiny Notes in the official Hintbook which claim to tell the 'real story' appear to be largely fictional themselves. It states that Hitler took the Spear of Destiny from France in 1939 (in real life they didn't invade France until 1940, some history sources claim he actually procured the spear in 1938 from Vienna, when he annexed Austria), and used it over the next five years (which adds up to 1944). Finally it says he committed suicide in his bunker on April 28, 1945, the same day the spear was taken from Nuremburg by the Allies (Hitler actually committed suicide on April 30th).
    • The Endings for the Mission packs are exactly the same as the ending for Spear of Destiny, not text was changed, and doesn't fit with mission storylines too well as it mentions him being near Castle Nuremeburg.
    • Nocturnal Missions take place perhaps shortly before Wolfenstein 3D, and the ending mentions him being sent on that mission next.
    • The Date given for when the Totenkopf rings were blasted into the mountain appears to be inaccurate, as in actual history he supposedly had them blasted into the mountain back in 1938 as an 'ongoing' shrine to those who die and who would die for the Third Reich.
SODGNdate
  • The Graphic Novel for Spear of Destiny looks to give the event to have taken place prior to 20/21 Sep, 1940, or 30 (the date that appears on multiple documents in Wolfenstein (2009)), which could suggest that Spear of Destiny took place much earlier than implied by other sources and history.

Dating of Return to Castle WolfensteinEdit

  • The game is set in March, 1943.
  • The date of his birthdate maybe listed as 15, 21 or 31 July, 1911 or 15 "august" but its hard to make out, on his ID card (the manual also mentions his background as "According to the original Wolfenstein 3D Hint BOok, Captain William Joseph Blazkowicz was born August 15, 1911 to Polish immigrants. He married after WWII to Julia Maria Peterson. Their son, Arthur Kenneth Blazkowicz became a television talk show host in Milwaukee and later changed his last name to Blaze).
  • Return to Castle Wolfenstein and the Strategy Guide shows artwork from various places in the game which have a date that suggests they were produced long after 1943, some upwards to 1944 in the timeline. Or at least projected to be useful up to that date.
  • The manual contains a picture of an OSA Identity Card for William Blazkowicz. It has a date given as October 23, 1945. It is unclear if this a expiration date, or a reenlistment/issuing date for the card (most of the early military-style ID cards such as War Department Identification Card have a date 'issued' section, but newer Id cards have an expiration date instead). Like other post 1943 dates given in the game, its unclear what it actually intends to portray.
  • Interestingly, the manual for Tides (and possibly the PS2 Operation Resurrection) of War has an extended introduction. It is written from POV of a mid-20th century historian looking back at the events of 1943 in the past tense perspective (some of which sounds like its talking about the entire 20th century in past tense), but then switches to a 'present' tense set during March 1943, and sets up the events of the prologue campaign in Egypt.
  • The Cursed Sands prologue was developed by different developer than RTCW and may not fit entirely with timeline details given in original game or strategy guide. With some changes between plot between both versions, but it's mostly minor changes. One change is a loss of BJ debriefing screens in the console games.
  • The Tides of War version also comes with a copy of Wolf 3D unlocked as a second "campaign" after beating the game. Semi-implying it as a sequel to RTCW.

Dating of Wolfenstein (2009)Edit

  • Some material released around the time of Wolfenstein 2009 states that it occurs in an alternate world war II history.[73]. This is of course supported by the Graphic Novels, the events of the Tirpitz in the game (being destroyed at a later date and in a different locatino than in actual history), the strength of the Kreisau circle, and a few other details.
  • The exact date of Wolfenstein (2009) is not known (but information ingame and Graphic Novels suggest it must take place between late 1944 to 1946). Wolfenstein 3D Classic places it after February, 1945. The ingame trivia also ties in directly the Commander Keen is his grandson, and his backstory and marriage after the war into his history (and not just a 'development' book fact, although this has very little influence on the game or the Wolfenstein 2009 plotline).
    • Wolfenstein internal dates show references to events as far as late 1944 (see Leichenfaust 44, or the old propaganda poster, Befolgen Sie!, September 3, 1944, Hamburg posters on walls covered with newspaper clippings (seen as early as the first level)).
    • A notice/sign/poster discusses a 'A boycott will take place in september' (September 1945?, or old poster tied to the previous year?).
    • A delivery slip included in an intel on the first level shows what looks like 9 - 2 or 5 - 2 XXXX (the last bit is smudged,") which could be a date: likely February 2/5 (day/month) as used in many German speaking countrie sbased on calendar dating order on other documents in the game (this also support the idea that the story takes place after February, 1945 as suggested by Wolfenstein 3D classic), it could be May or September 2nd. On the other hand it may not be a date at all, but rather some other type of information. This appears to be the weapon delivery form for the train that the Kriege black market rob (incidently the stub also lists an MP46 which could suggest 1946, although this probably intended to be MP40, one of the weapons in the game).
    • Also there is a registration document in Wolfenstein 2009 included as part of an Intel folder background graphic appears to have two dates attached to two signatures, the year listed appears to be 1945 (but the 5 could also resemble a rough 3). One of the dates looks to be 2 or 3 of Nov, March or May (only three letters appear but are hard to make out), 1945, the other is perhaps 11, 21 or 31 of "Jul" ("July?" but only three or four letter appear, Jul/Jan/Jun?). If assumed to be signed in chronological order March/May followed by June or July would make the most sense (if the second date includes 31 only July would work).
    • Going by German weapon naming conventions the Leichenfaust 44 may give the date of the weapon's first development/manufacture as 1944. However this is not reliable indication of exact date of Wolfenstein (2009) or the weapon's manufacture as the MG43/MG44/STG44 saw use as early as 1942 (STG44 had some minor differences than the earlier models when it was redesignated in 1944), and it is not known how long they have been experimenting with the veil energy in the first place (some of the intel is dated at least far back as 1940). It would at least imply that the Leichenfaust 44 was first introduced in 1944 (but this is no indication of it being mass produced or not, and may still have been a prototype then and later). It at least indicates that they have been experimenting with veil for at least since 1944.
  • The Fourth Reich/Black Sun timeline of the video graphic novels released with Wolfenstein (2009) was produced by Raven Software. It was intended to place the series from Wolfenstein 3D, Spear of Destiny, Return to Castle Wolfenstein, and Wolfenstein in the same timeline as told from the files of the Fourth Reich which had risen after Hitler's initial defeat (or death 'figure who killed the Fuhrer'), and what was believed to be the "end" of the war, but they had regrouped in Berlin and continued the war anew (though the files are not 'read' in chronological order). The events of the games are told in highly compressed fashion (with only a few events from each story highlighted), and a few changes in details.
    • The fourth graphic novel comic (Part 4 Unveiled Power) is required to understand the introduction of Wolfenstein (2009) as it explains how BJ infiltrated the Tirpitz, how he sabotaged the ship, how he obtained the captain's uniform, and the medallion. The intro begins where the graphic novel left off.
    • In the game, Anton Kriege looks into the B.J. past and discovers both the Office of Secret Actions and the Spear of Destiny. He wonders what kind of price the Spear of Destiny would fetch. This is a reference to the game Spear of Destiny and B.J.s previous actions (see Graphic Novel Episode 2). There is also a reference to Nazi's reports on B.J. describing as tall, blond. This is a reference to his appearance in Wolfenstein 3D and Spear of Destiny (indicating that B.J. is wearing a disguise, and has changed his hair color in Wolfenstein).
    • There are a number of nods to Operation Resurrection and the events of RTCW, and reoccurring characters from that game.
  • "Betrieb Fall Rot" appears on some maps seen in Wolfenstein 2009. Operation Fall Rot (Case Red in English) was the second phase of the conquest of France by the German Army, begun on 5 June 1940 (an actual event in history).
  • An obelisk near the hospital appears to have a date or two and gives the town the name "Eisenstadt", perhaps designating the founding of the town. At least one of the numbers appears to have 3 digits, but is highly pock marked (perhaps 582 or 862 or 852 or 952, etc). The actual Eisenstadt in Austria was founded in the 800s.
  • The Manhattan Project was an American project to create atomic bomb from 1942 to 1946. The first tests Trinity occured on July 16, 1945 shortly after the end of European theatre.
    • It is mentioned in Wolfenstein (2009) by the Blackmarket dealers. Suggesting they have already heard of the tests or at least the Americans are very close to success. How this relates to actual historical references is not clear, and other elements of the game suggest that the game has already deviated into an alternate timeline.
    • As Wolfenstein is set after February, 1945, it may place it between February and July, 1945.
  • The SS Tirpitz seen in Wolfenstein (2009) was an actual ship. It was the second of two Bismarck-class battleships built for the German Kriegsmarine (War Navy) during World War II. It was sunk by Royal Air Force bombers on 12 November 1944 at Sørbotn off Håkøy near Tromsø, Norway.
    • Wolfenstein 3D Classic (with details from the Graphic Novels) places Wolf3D during February 1945. This would place Tirpitz destruction in 1945, and would be a deviation from the actual historical timeline.
    • If the 2009 game was set before the "end" of WW2, it would still be an alternate retelling of the ship's sinking in 1944 during the height of the war as it is sunk five miles off the coast of England in the game (though the graphic novel suggests the sabotage took place in the North Sea between the UK and Denmark, north of the Netherlands). The different location of destruction from the historical location of the Tirpitz destruction suggesting an alternate universe as well.
      • The lack of air defense against the Tirpitz and the closeness of the Tirpitz to England would suggest the Royal Airforce has already been compromised as in the New Order timeline in early 1945, and that B.J.s mission was a last ditch suicide mission to stop Britain's defeat. A suicide mission to stop Britain's ultimate defeat is at least confirmed in the game, as the Tirpitz was about to launch missiles of some kind on England. And destroy London
      • The SS Tirpitz has advanced missile silos beyond anything known to Germans in actual history (suggesting further deviations in the alternate timeline).
  • The Kreisau Circle is another element taken from history that exists in the Wolfenstein timeline. Historically, it was a minor organization that dissolved on 19 January 1944, when its leader Moltke was arrested and the Kreisau Circle fell into disarray.
    • In Wolfenstein universe it has taken on a much larger role, and exists into 1945/6 or much later depending on the timelines. The Leichenfaust 44 existence as developed in 1944 or the September 3, 1944 date (old Befolgen Sie! propaganda posters, many of which are covered with layers of old newspapers) would suggest that the Kreisau Circle had already surpassed the point in time of its historical dissolution by the time of Wolfenstein 2009 (regardless if the game had been set in 1944 or 1945 to 1946).
  • The Golden Dawn was an actual organization founded in October 1887, although documents which it based it founding were discovered in 1886.
    • Wolfenstein establishes a different founder for the organization, and states it was founded "over 50 years ago", although this would suggest its founding was a decade later than the actual organization (about 'sixty years ago" might be more accurate if following historical founding).

Dating of the Wolfenstein/Doom RPGs/Other ID Related SourcesEdit

  • The Id Universe timeline, which the RPGs are part of, overlaps more or less the original timeline (WW2 is implied to end in 1945, and the ID/Apogee connections to original Doom series/Doom RPG, Commander Keen, etc still occur).
    • While certain elements taken from RTCW or Doom 3 exist as well, they do not appear to directly link to those universes necessarily going by ingame material only (and certainly not the The New Order or Fourth Reich timelines). However, the Doom RPG website states that Doom Marine is the same character from Doom 1-3, linking and confirming the games as part of the same universe.
    • The Spear of Destiny appears in the story which may suggest a retellng of the events of Spear of Destiny (unless the Germans somehow reacquired the spear at some point in which case one might be a prequel of the other). However, the idea of the Nazi's recapturing the Spear multiple times is an idea used in the Secret Missions packs and mentioned in the hintbooks/manuals. On the other hand some may see the reference to Spear of Destiny in the Wolfenstein 2009 game to be a reference to this particular Spear of Destiny event (as the RPG (2008, 2009) was released as a partial tie-in to the 2009 release). The spear is said to have been captured by the allies on April 28th, 1945, shortly before Hitler's suicide.
    • Elements that are taken from RTCW include the music, the OSA and the Paranormal Division, the town of Paderborn. Olaric and Mariana appears and B.J. Appearance is taken from RTWC/2009 with dark brunette hair and leather bomber jacket which are seen in a few scenes.
    • This may overlap with an alternate Wolfenstein 2009/RTCW timeline in which the war essentially ended in 1945 (as in history, and implied by the RTCW manual) leading up to the Commander Keen series (only with a few minor deviations from the actual history).
    • The prologue mentions that Allies are bombing the Axis strongholds, and that Allied victory is close at hand. This could imply that Wolfenstein RPG takes place closer the end of war 1945 than earlier (but this is not clear).
    • While Wolfenstein RPG itself is censored, and mostly family friendly compared to most Wolfenstein games, it is still tied into the more serious Doom RPG series, which in turn are tied into the overall Doom series as a whole. Wolfenstein RPG takes place earlier in the war when B.J. was a Sergeant (c. 1942), and apparently not long after Spear of Destiny.

The website for Doom RPG states that the character from Doom, Doom 2, Doom 3, and Doom RPG are the same. It also suggests that Doom RPG is a sequel to Doom 3, but probably a prequel to Doom I/II.[145] A single line in Doom RPG implies that the name of the Marine is B.J. Blazcowicz. Knowing this detail, its possible to use the time references from the Doom manual to place Doom I in relation to Doom 3.

The character in Doom II RPG is a different character, Stan Blazkowicz. But apparently related to Doom RPG character.

B.J. is only a Sergeant in the game, and hasn't yet been promoted to Captain.

As General Fettgesicht is shown in Wolfenstein RPG it can be assumed he is still alive, and it probably takes place before the Nocturnal Missions.

As some of the super soldiers are in the game it has to be after early days of the Super Soldier Program.

The Wolf RPG mentions a couple of dates between January and February, but does not give specific year. The year can only be surmised based on surrounding information, and suggested date given for Spear of Destiny in the graphic novels.

Dating of Wolfeinstein 3-DEdit

NewspaperWolf3dplat
  • The date for when Wolfenstein 3-D takes place is not specifically given in the original games or most ports, manuals, or hintbooks. There is no details given which suggest when it takes place 'historically' (I.E. no direct mentions of the invasion of Berlin (April, 1945), no reference to the Russians, and in fact might suggest that he's actually an undercover behind enemy lines while the Germans still strongly control Germany.
  • The Wolfenstein 3-D hintbook only states that Eisenfaust represented Nazi's "last gasp" effort to end the war.
  • Wolfenstein Platinum Edition connects RTWC/Wolfenstein 2009/Graphic Novels to the original game. It places Wolfenstein 3D's main events in February, 1945 (this suggests that Hitler attack is different event than the historical suicide in April, 1945). That either war ended earlier in classic timeline, or Hitler's death was falsified, he was resurrected somehow, for classic timeline to continue forward as it does. The trivia section still makes reference to the classic timeline, (confirming Commander Keen is B.J.'s grandson).
  • Morse Code that can be heard during a song in Episode 3 states that B.J.'s mission to assassinate Hitler, took the course of a single day.
  • Original Encounter portrays B.J.'s first attempt on Hitler's life, and acts as a prequel to the original PC Wolfenstein 3D (it is set roughly before the first game by perhaps a month according to the Jaguar version).
    • Hitler is thought to be dead, at the end of the Original Encounter. But returns again for the original Wolfenstein 3D campaign (so-called "3rd Encounter" in the Mac version).
    • Wolfenstein for the Mac Family/Jaguar/3D0 is different than original game, and set in a different set of locations such as the Wolf's Lair, and has a different storyline/endings. The Mac Family (Jaguar/Mac/3D0/Apple IIGS) actually places Original Encounter/2nd Encounter (which were based on the SNES version) as the first defeat of Hitler by B.J., whereas the 3rd Encounter includes the second defeat (original PC version & Nocturnal Nissions). Other than the Jaguar version the MAC/3D0/AppleIIGS do not have much story or any ending screens, but are purely gameplay (which sort of allows for various characters returns to be a bit more 'believable' if assumed they were healed of their 'wounds').
  • The endings for Wolfenstein 3D (and its Episodes/Missions) are different depending on which version of the game is being played (as well as other adaptations such as the Graphic Novels for Wolfenstein (2009)). Thus there is no specific consistency to the storyline (and some characters are fought more than once over two or more campaigns, MAC/3D0 versions vs. Spear of Destiny and Wolfenstein 3D for example). Even the various descriptions in the Episode ending screens of original DOS Wolfenstein 3D do not necessarily match with what is shown in the actual game itself, or with what is published in the official Hintbook/Manuals. So inconsistencies do exist between the media.
    • In the original PC version it states that B.J. kicked off Hitler's head insuring he would not arise again. However, if he didn't actually kill Hitler, it would either have to be an other one of his clones, or his brain would have had to have been transferred to another body/shell (for him to have survived). Either that, or later developers reimagined what happened to his body (he was resuscitated and 'healed' from his wounds).
  • Bunker and Hitler's defeat/death (in history the death was on April 30, 1945) seemingly occurs in both actual WW2 history and Wolfenstein 3D (at least implied by the strategy guide but not specifically mentioned in the games themselves). The event overlaps in each timeline more or less, representing the same event but alternate histories (however, as technically no date is given in the original Wolfenstein 3-D material specifically, and it could instead be based on one of the earlier attempts on Hitler's life before 1945, several of which are also referenced in the hintbook for the game). In actual history Hitler committed suicide with Eva Braun in the Fuhrerbunker under the Reichs Chancellory, while in Wolfenstein's timelines he is either killed or at least wounded by B.J. Blazkowicz in the Reichstag Bunker and earlier at Castle Wolfenstein (Original Encounter). Although no date is usually given for when Wolfenstein 3D takes place in the manuals or other material (although the Spear of Destiny Hintbook does mention his suicide was about April 1945, but it is discussing the historical trivia). However, it is possible that the B.J.'s attempt on the Fuhrer represents one of the earlier attempts on Hitler's life before his eventual Suicide (assuming he 'survived'), which could set the event earlier in the war. The Mac Family 3rd encounter suggests Hitler was defeated by B.J. twice.
    • The first episode of Wolfenstein 3D: Escape from Castle Wolfenstein is more or less a remake of Castle Wolfenstein game (that is covering a very similar introductory story, however Castle Wolfenstein is concerned with Operation Rheingold rather than Eisenfaust), but also a semi-sequel, the 3 in 3D has the double meaning of being in 3D, and being the third game in the series. Beyond that Castle Wolfenstein & Episode 3: Die, Fuhrer, Die are roughly related as they represent alternate versions of the Bunker/Hitler's Death (though Beyond Castle Wolfenstein's version shares elements of the 20 July Plot, 1944 in an unrelated bunker at Wolf's Lair). This is specifically pointed out in the Spear of Destiny Hintbook (date included in classic timeline due to this reference). Note: This was only one of several attempts on Hitler's life before or during his rule (around 14 known attempts altogether).
    • The attack on Hitler in Wolfenstein 3D and in the Fourth Reich timelines occurs in the Reichstag Bunker. This is not the same location as Hitler's death at the Führerbunker at the Reichs Chancellory (although in real life the Reichstag and Reich Chancellery and Fuhrerbunker are very close together). The Führerbunker is a location covered in Mission 3: Ultimate Challenge of Spear of Destiny, where B.J. recaptured the Spear of Destiny for the third time (perhaps roughly coinciding with the allied invasion of Berlin near the end of the war April 28, 1945 according to the Spear of Destiny hintbook), and leaving room for possible "Hitler Suicide" for yet another 'loss', or he escaped to Reichstag (only to be followed and killed/defeated).
    • The exact date of B.J. attack is not given in the Fourth Reich timeline but must take place after 1943 following RTCW (somewhere between 1943 and 1945). The Graphic Novels suggest that RTCW is "near the end of the 'war'", and that B.J. believes that Hitler's defeat represents the end of the 'war'. It neither confirms Hitler's death but rather suggests Hitler suffered a "major defeat" suggesting he survived from his wounds, and then allowing the Reich to rebuild itself not long after. There are plenty of paintings of Hitler in Wolfenstein (paintings, photographs, and an old propaganda poster), however, there is no direct mention of him (or his leadership), and Deathshead strangely presumes to put a prominent painting of himself in the castle rather than any paintings of Hitler. The only prominent historical Nazi mentioned, albeit briefly, is Heinrich Himmler who is in command of the SS Paranormal Division.
    • Incidently in real life there was an additional attempt on Hitler's life in 1943 at Wolf's Lair, East Prussia by Unknown Pole. Perhaps this one of the elements that inspired B.J. to be of Polish descent.
    • Strangely the ending of Nocturnal Missions states that following his return from defeating Fatface, he married a movie star. But chronologically speaking that would be before the end of the war, and even before the Eisenfaust missions.
  • The Strategy Guide strangely seems to imply that Wolfenstein 3D (or at least the Eisenfaust portion of the campaign) took place before Return to Castle Wolfenstein. IF that was the case, it would mean that either an attempt on Hitler occurred before July, 1942, or Eisenfaust took place in 1942, and assassination attempt on the Fuhrer came later. See Welcome Back, Soldier.
  • Alternatively, RTCW: Tides of War places Wolfenstein 3D as a "second campaign" unlocked after completion of ToW, suggesting it as a sequel to RTCW set later in the timeline.
  • The Old Blood places events of Wolfenstein 3D at some point before January 3, 1946, as referenced in a newspaper concerning the assassination attempt on Hitler's life.
  • When Gamespot asked if Mecha-Hitler would be in Wolfenstein: The New Order, they were told that he was already defeated in Wolfenstein 3D (but still possibly alive). It was suggested to them that events of Wolfenstein 3D were still canon.[74] In addition BJ appears as a tall and blonde character much like his appearance in the original games (rather than brown haired as he appears in RTCW and Wolfenstein). The Nightmare (side mission/easter egg) in The New Order may suggest a repressed memory of this. But it had no direct impact on Hitler's life or the outcome of the war. No exact date is given for the event. The extended Nightmare levels campaign in Old Blood goes as far as the defeat of Hans Grosse, the capture of Eisenfaust documents, and escape from Wolfenstein, and has dated material as early as 1928 (Old silver). Finally, there is a newspaper that makes a more direct reference to B.J.'s assassination attempt on Hitler, and severely injuring him which is a direct reference to events of Wolfenstein 3D or the Original Encounter, though by January 1946, Hitler reappears (apparently after some time of recuperation) and denies he was injured (propaganda).

Placement of the Nocturnal MissionsEdit

  • The date when these take place is not specifically stated in most sources.
  • However, one source states that the Nocturnal Missions place them three months before Wolfeinstein 3-Dneeds verification.
  • The Nocturnal Missions are generally considered a prequel to the original games. This is stated at the end of Episode 3 of the PC version as well. Episode 5, definitely makes reference to Operation Eisenfaust about to begin.
  • However strangely the ending for episode 6, is written as if he gets married right after the events of the Nocturnal Missions. His marriage however is said to take place after the war in other places.
  • In versions where the story details are mostly stripped away. Such as on the Mac version or the 3D0 version, there is no indication that it is a prequel. The only indication that it is a prequel in Wolfenstein 3D classic is that its triva section, otherwise it seemingly also takes place in the version's date of February, 1945.
  • Wolfenstein 3D Classic again lacks much actual 'story' replacing the ending sequence with a Daily News paper screen, which only sets the date as February, 1945 for all the missions (the same screen is used for Spear of Destiny as well). Which again gives no indication within the main game that Nocturnal Missions are a 'prequel', but could even go as far to imply that they occur in the same month as the first three episodes. However, the trivia section does point out that The Nocturnal Missions, were "intended to act as a prequel to the original trilogy of Episodes".


New Order/Old Blood notesEdit

  • Old Blood and New Order makes certain retcons that may not necessarily fit entirely with Return to Castle Wolfenstein, or even Wolfenstein (2009). Such as history elements concerning reimagined "Castle Wolfenstein" itself, Wesley, Kessler, more primitve Super Soldiers (than even those seen in RTCW), changes to geography where Castle Wolfenstien is located, in relation to Paderborn/Wulfburg villages, etc.
    • It is possible that very little of Wolfenstein (2009) was utilized as part of plot of Wolfenstein: The New Order. "...we asked him if the last Activision Wolfenstein game had any baring on their version to which he replied, "No it does not. We try not to include that game as part of our story. Personally, I think that Activision did a crap job." [1]. Infact RTCW itself was published by Activision and was under their direction, and may fall under this criticism (though Old Blood itself makes many nods to the game, but reimagines them). In fact the designers claimed to be more of a fan of the original games in the series instead (Wolfenstein 3D/Spear of Destiny).
  • In a potential retcon/goof, BJ mentions he was 32 during events of RTCW (March, 1943), however, if his birthday was in August, 1911, he would only be 31 in March. It is possible his birthday was retconned earlier in the year before March. The game is never specific on when his birthdate actually is.
  • Both games mention the X-Labs incident.
  • Fergus Reid mentions that they have been searching for years to have another confrontation with Wilhelm Strasse. Technically if the dating in Wolfenstein (2009) was taken into consideration the OSA had a confrontation with him only a little over or less than a year before. If he is being accurate then the game must be placing the events at least two years before 1946 (in the 1944 period, even before the the period when the RAF is destroyed).
  • While Wesley (Agent One), an OSA agent from England was killed in the original Return to Castle Wolfenstein timeline, a doppleganger Richard Wesley from Wales (though he is at least called twice as Englishman by nazis) appears in The Old Blood much alive and well. It's unclear if they are intended to be the same person or simply the game making a nod to names from the previous games much like with Helga Von Schabbs. But this could indeed indicate another change/retcon/reimagining from a previous timeline. Perhaps it's possible that The Old Blood follows off of the RTCW co-op timeline events were Agent One escapes with B.J. and avoids being tortured.
  • Ludwig Kessler is a nod to the Kessler from RTCW, however, B.J. and Ludwig Kessler have never met in person until the events of the Old Blood. Kessler has apparently had contact with him over the radio however. This appears to be another reimagining, and reboot of the timeline. There is however a reference to BJ having been to the Wulfburg safehouse in the past (which maybe a reference to RTCW, he just never met Kessler there).
  • The only references to 2009 that appear are Kreisau Circle, an explanation of Anya's perceived 'death'/'disappearance', and references to Hans Grosse (2009)/Hans Grösse, and Strasse's involvement in Isenstadt.
  • The Old Blood contains many nods and references to characters, and locations from RTCW and Wolfenstein 3D.[75] However, many of them are reimagined or changed.
  • Otto I, Holy Roman Emperor was historically the son of Heinrich I, the villain of Return to Castle Wolfenstein, putting a familial connection between the villains of both games. Though there is little or no references to his father (or his father's actions). Though an image of his father in his younger years may be included in the paintings in the castle.
  • It is mentioned on Jan 12, 1946 that Hitler revisits Castle Wolfenstein. This maybe an offhand nod to the fact that Hitler was placed at Castle Wolfenstein in the Original Encounter and Mac Family campaign (a prologue to the original Wolfenstein 3D) campaign which had B.J. ultimately encountering and defeating Hitler twice in his lifetime. The Wolfenstein graphic novels also seemingly placed hitler's encounter at Castle Wolfenstein as well (but its less clear).
  • The Nightmare! levels in both New Order and Old Blood games portray B.J.'s memories of an escape and encounter with Hans Grösse in Wolfenstein 3D/3rd Encounter, the New Order even includes mission objective, journal information and narrative. The Old Blood versions are slightly more accurate to the original Wolfenstein 3D versions including more types of enemies including dogs and lieutenants (however, it uses 1946 era weapons and a silenced pistol unlike the weapons in the original game).
  • Old silver an item found throughout the nightmare levels (and unlock classic character data in the Extras menus) in The Old Blood are all dated to 1928. Placing the nightmare events post-1928. Though weapons are the 1946 era handguns and rifles, and unlikely be accurate to dating the events of the Nightmare, assuming Hans Grosse's first defeat (or at least an earlier one before events of Wolfenstein (2009)) had to have occured before 1945 (see RTCW timeline and/or Black Sun timeline). Or at least 1946 weapon prototypes existed in 1945. However a newspaper in The Old Blood would appear to place events of Original Encounter/2nd Encounter/Mac Family events in 1946, making the weapons dating a non-issue. However, it might also place the events of Wolfenstein 2009 in early 1946 as well (for the order of events of when Hans Grosse was first encountered vs. his death in Isenstadt, or perhaps its been reimagined that he survived Isenstadt and later defeated again at Castle Wolfenstein (in oposition to the graphic novels)).
  • Wolfenstein Assassin Faces Execution

Berlin, 3 Jan. 1946 - It was the Führer himself who put the noose around the neck of the assassin known as "the Castle Wolfenstein terrorist" when he was executed Sunday morning.

Herr Hitler was in a fine mood having recovered remarkably well from the cowardly assassination attempt. As he was led into the execution chamber, the terrorist soiled himself when he saw our Führer in such good health. "Let this be a powerful reminder that all enemies of our great nation will meet a righteous end," said Herr Hitler after the assassin had stopped twitching where he hung on the rope. "It is time to quell the insidious rumors claiming that I was badly hurt by the terrorist and that he managed to escape. They were fabrications manufactured by our enemies. Everyone who is found to repeat these lies will face trial as traitors of the Reich."

Overlapping concepts and divergenceEdit

  • There are a number of ways where Old Blood seems to diverge from events of Return to Castle Wolfenstein, but share several ideas and concepts as well. There is a few nods to BJ having been to Wulfburg/Castle Wolfenstein on previous occasions (Wolf 3D, RTCW, etc), but certain characters from RTCW either are alive again, such as Richard Wesley (or it followed the co-op campaign where Wesley survived and helped BJ on every mission), or do not recognize him in the same way (Ludwig Kessler introduces himself to BJ for the first time, though there is some indication they have at least talked to each other over the radio before). While Kamfhounds seem to be a reference to X-shepherds, the 1946 Old Blood versions of Supersoldaten appear more primitive than those found late in RTCW in 1943.
  • While both New Order/Old Blood and Fourth Reich graphic novels suggest an alternate history diverging from WW2 (with a continuation of the war after 1945). They may both diverge at different points (or possibly overalp).
    • In New Order, Hitler was not killed in his bunker, but may have suffered a defeat according to Gamespot interview and a newspaper seen in the Old Blood (see above). A nightmare does hint that the start of Wolfenstein 3-D events may have occurred (there is some in game story and diaologue connected to it). By 1946 things have turned around in Germany's favor. The Nightmare levels in The Old Blood continues this trend up to Hans Grösse, and the Escape from Castle Wolfenstein. There is also a newspaper that discusses the attempt on Hitler's life by B.J..
    • In the Fourth Reich timeline Hitler suffers a 'major defeat' during Operation: Eisenfaust (assumed to be in 1945 corresponding to his actual date of death, but could refer to one of the other earlier attempts' on his life as well), leading to false idea that the war had ended. But the Nazis arose again under the Fourth Reich (under an unknown leadership), and the war continued. It is not specifically stated that Hitler was killed but that he had suffered a 'major defeat'.
      • Where they may diverge is the point when Wolfenstein (2009) took place either (this is presumably after Wolfenstein 3-D according to the graphic novels). On the one hand Wolfenstein (2009) does not give any specific dates (most references to the Reich refer to "Das Reich" (The Reich) or "Deutch Reich" (German Reich)) and there are already elements that suggest that its timeline already has diverged from actual WW2 history (SS Tirpitz) or continued existence of the Kreisau Circle, so either way it could have occurred before or after 1945 without much affect to the story or continuity.
    • There may be room for both timelines to overlap, but that would mean Wolf3D takes place before Wolfenstein 2009 (in whatever date the 2009 game takes place, but this is suggested by the Graphic novels as well).
      • Of what was utilized includes Caroline Becker (implied to have been killed in the 2009 game). Of course the return of Wilhelm Strasse (although his return could be seen as more direct reappearance to RTCW), and his technology is more reminiscent to the technology seen in RTCW (mechanical hounds and uber soldiers). Caroline punching Hans Grosse is briefly mentioned as well. The Kreisau Circle begins but it has existed since RTCW as well.
  • The Kreisau Circle is another element taken from history that exists in the Wolfenstein timelines in the ID universe, RTCW, New Order and the Fourth Reich timelines. Historically, it was a minor organization that dissolved on 19 January 1944, when its leader Moltke was arrested and the Kreisau Circle fell into disarray.
  • As mentioned the events of Wolfenstein 3D and attack on Hitler are referenced to various degrees in every timeline including the RTCW strategy guide, Wolfenstein (2009)/Graphic novels, Wolfenstein 3D Classic (where its an OSA mission) and reinterpreted in The Old Blood.
  • The escape from Castle Wolfenstein and battle with Hans Grosse is referenced in several games and several sources including a nod to it in the RTCW strategy guide, the Wolfenstien/Graphic novels, and The Old Blood. See also Wolfenstein 3D classic, where it was tied into the OSA/RTCW/Wolfenstein RPG/2009 games.

The date originates from the Spear of Destiny Graphic Novel from 2009. Technically Jean Moulin only became resistance member in late 1940, possibly 1941. But its hard to say if he could have been considered a 'resistance leader' that early on or not. He wouldn't be back to France until 1942 when he took on more resistance duties altogether. Which might make the game fit better at that point in time.
