In honor of the 20th anniversary of Wolfenstein 3D, Bethesda Software is releasing a free, browser-based version of the game for the masses. Wolfenstein 3D, which can be played here, is considered one of the earliest first-person shooters, and the game that made the genre popular on PC.
Developed by design legends John Carmack, John Romero and Tom Hall back in 1992, Wolfenstein 3D was originally released as a free shareware game. The game, available to play at the Bethesda site, supports most modern browsers: Google Chrome 16, Internet Explorer 9, Firefox 11, and Apple Safari 5. The browser version is the full release of Wolfenstein 3D; you play an American soldier in WWII attempting to escape from the Nazi stronghold of Castle Wolfenstein.
To play the snazzy HTML 5 version of Wolf 3D , just go to their website and choose the version you want to play then insert your birth date and start playing the game by following the instructions. All three of the main “episodes” are present here, with each including 10 sub-levels. If you haven’t played it already, trying out the browser version is a must.
