Wolfenstein (2009) was delisted on Steam on May 5th, 2014. Just months before the game’s release id Software, who owned the Wolfenstein property, was acquired by Zenimax Media. The company presumably allowed the game to remain on Steam until just before the release of Wolfenstein: The New Order on May 19th. Since The New Order largely reinvented the Wolfenstein canon that came before it, Zenimax may have chosen to delisted the 2009 release to avoid brand confusion.
About the Game
Wolfenstein brings the Nazi’s dark obsession with the occult to life with epic action and harrowing shooter combat. Use a powerful arsenal of both definitive and occult-enhanced Axis & Allied weapons to beat back a supernatural Nazi force that is full of surprises. You play as BJ Blazkowicz, a highly decorated member of the Office of Secret Actions (OSA). You are sent on a special mission into the heart of the Reich to investigate evidence that the Nazis may possess a new and mysterious power.
While behind enemy lines, you discover the Nazis have done much more than develop a new toy. The Nazis are harnessing the power of the Black Sun through a dark parallel dimension called The Veil, in order to create a weapon of war-ending mass destruction. You are the only one that can stop them and save the world from their perverse domination.
