Wolfenstein: The New Order To Not Have Multiplayer
Published on Wednesday, 08 May 2013 07:59
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.
Here we are. The next generation of consoles is among us and it is finally time to start thinking about finally unplugging our beloved current-gen systems. Could there be a better swan song for one of these systems than taking a trip back to Rapture?
Let’s face it: buying digital games is significantly more convenient than buying from a retail store. You don’t have to put pants on to go outside, nor do you even have to go outside. You don’t have to drive to the store, nor do you have to wait in line at said store. On top of that, the price is generally the exact same, if not more for the physical version.
Let’s face it: staying in just your underwear, FTW.
Despite the overwhelming advantages of buying digital, I still can’t fully commit to it. While I understand I am more in the minority with each day that goes by, I truly believe I have a legitimate case about buying physical copies of games.
In some sort of cosmic twist, I have seen the future. No, I didn’t find out where/when/why I’ll die, nor did I even find out what I’ll have for breakfast tomorrow (I hope it’s pancakes). But I assure you, I have seen the future.
The future of video games that is. I recently got to test out Morpheus - uh, I mean PlayStation VR - Sony’s answer to the ever-growing interest in virtual reality. Although the headset is currently far from completion, it’s also far from shotty.
Whether it’s a rainy day, a sickness, or some other reason not to go outside and enjoy the beautiful summer air, video games are the perfect way to spend your time - that is, if you can find a game to play. In terms of releases, summer generally isn’t the most fruitful of seasons, and this year is no different. So what games could/should you be sinking your teeth into during the dog days?
