In honor of the 20th anniversary of Wolfenstein 3D, Bethesda Software is releasing a free, browser-based version of the game for the masses. We’re anticipating a worldwide drop in productivity as people with desk jobs spend a good part of their day blasting bad guys in this classic game.

Wolfenstein 3D is widely regarded as one of the first true first-person shooters. It was the game that really brought the genre to prominence on the PC all those years ago. The game was originally released for free, but a paid version was launched later. Now it has come full circle and 20 years later it is available for free again, but this time directly from your web browser.

The browser version is not just a sample of the game; It is the entire game, from beginning to end. For younger gamers, this is a chance to see what things were like a long time ago.

To go along with this free release, Bethesda are offering the iOS version of Wolfenstein for free. For a limited time, you can pick up the game on your favorite Apple device without having to open your wallet.

When you put the free browser-based game and the iOS game together, it seems to me that Bethesda is doing well to honor one of the most important first-person shooters in our history. Play the game here!

    I've been playing Wolf3d almost since it was released. Continuously. I've memorized the location of every baddie in the entire game on Death Incarnate. I convinced my college professors to let me play during class. When I upgraded to 64 bit Windows, I created a 32 bit virtual machine for the sole purpose of Wolf3d (and some other games of the same era). From 2002 until 2011 I had a 90MHz PC dedicated solely to Wolf3d, Age of Empires and Tie Fighter. Yeah, I'm a little addicted.
