Wolfenstein: The New Order To Not Have Multiplayer

Wolfenstein: The New Order To Not Have Multiplayer

Unlike most modern games with a core shooting mechanic, Bethesda’s recently announced Wolfenstein: The New Order will reportedly not offer a multiplayer aspect as apart of its package, GameSpot was told. The reason? Creative director Jens Matthies is taking the project very, very seriously...

"It’s such a huge part of video game legacy...If there’s a video game museum, Wolfenstein is in the first room. It’s the start of the wave that shaped the world of gaming...On a personal level, I played this when I was younger and it was mind-blowing...I never then of course dreamed that I was going to be working with it. It’s both an honor and a legacy."

There’s no denying the impact the original Wolfenstein had on the video game industry, so Matthies is spot on with that one. Wolfenstein: The New Order is being developed by MachineGames and is set to release in Q4 for the Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, PC, and whatever Microsoft has up their sleeve for next-gen.

Have you heard, NHL 15 is missing a few features? Special articles

Have you heard, NHL 15 is missing a few features?

I remember being thoroughly disappointed that last years NHL 14 was not going to appear on the Xbox One or the PS4.  Every other major North American sport received their next-generation iteration; hockey fans got the proverbial short end of the stick. But I believed that the NHL franchise was in good hands, if only for the quality the developers had shown in the series' previous entries, and if those developers needed an additional year to fine tune their game, great.  After playing the full game via EA Access early trial, I am worried again.

DLC Talk: Dishonored - The Knife of Dunwall

Dishonored: The Knife of Dunwall is an impressive little bit of DLC. I should emphasize “little” though, as it is a relatively short experience. Just when the story seems to get going it ends - or, rather, it “kind of” ends.
