If you always dreamed of an epic scale multi-player experience in the newest Wolfenstein, this information could disappoint you a bit! Unfortunately “The New Order”, (as the product is called) won’t include any form of multi-player component, according to the official sources… Developers express their views on the topic: “On a personal level, I played this when I was younger and it was mind-blowing,” Matthies added. “I never then of course dreamed that I was going to be working with it. It’s both an honor and a legacy.” “It’s such a huge part of video game legacy,” creative director Jens Matthies told GameSpot in a new video preview. “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.”
But as always in any business, there are people who form a strict opposition to the newest Wolfenstein. Some sources claim, that its not especially welcomed by players today: “Did the world really need another Wolfenstein game? Did we need a generically dark, monochromatic, FPS, kill-the-Nazi-giant-robot game? Uh. No. The world did not. I am so tired of stuff like this,” he said. “Oh, and could we all just agree we’ll never use the generic gravelly-whisper trailer voice guy ever again? And one more thing: Please stop using Jimi Hendrix to promote your adolescent male power fantasies.”
We can do observe very divided opinions concerning the new Wolfenstein… But we can’t reject the fact that the original title remained as one of the most classic games out there! It gave inspiration to many developers, who later tried to follow its steps in the gaming industry! Now there were many successive titles after the original Wolfenstein, but the most memorable of them all, was of course Return To Castle Wolfenstein. This great FPS was extremely well-done during that time, and was followed by the one of the greatest multi-player games ever – Enemy Territory.
This is all for now in the Wolfenstein franchise.. Will this product bring a “new order” in gaming? We will hopefully have a closer look at in the near future!
