The new game, developed by MachineGames and published by Bethesda Softworks, was released yesterday, and is getting plenty of positive buzz from fans of the series and fans of first-person shooters alike. For those who aren’t aware, Wolfenstein 3D was the first real first-person shooter, and that’s where the Easter Egg comes into play.

I haven’t personally played the game yet so I’m not sure where exactly this is (the beginning of the video should give a solid idea of where to go), but as one of the many whose first first-person shooter experience was with Wolfenstein 3D, it’s an awesomely nostalgic little Easter Egg to include in the game.

Wolfenstein: The New Order can be grabbed now for PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360.
