All Games in Chronological Order

As we need to cover a pretty wide range of games, let’s divide it into three parts:

  • Classic Timeline
  • New Order
  • Spin-Offs

Let’s start where it all began, the Classic times.

Classic Timeline

  • Castle Wolfenstein 
  • Beyond Castle Wolfenstein
  • Wolfenstein 3D
  • Return to Castle Wolfenstein
  • Wolfenstein

While the first Wolfenstein game in the series started from a Maze-Runner game, it influenced several other games. With the dissolution of Muse Software after Beyond Castle Wolfenstein, the series ventured into rudimentary 3D graphics. Wolfenstein 3D revolves around a spy on his mission to assassinate Adolf Hitler. This was one of the most influential games of all time.
