Wolfenstein: The New Order to be purely single-player experience

Wolfenstein: The New Order

By on May 9, 2013 at 6:42 pm

Machine Games have confirmed that their upcoming Wolfenstein re-re-boot, The New Order, will be a purely single-player experience with no multiplayer.

The news was broken by Gamespot, who say that Machine Games are focusing on the single-player experience in order to live up to the legacy of the title. “It’s such a huge part of video game legacy,” said creative director Jens Matthies. “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.”

Wolfenstein: The New Order was just announced yesterday. Click here for the trailer and some screens.

good to hear. makes me feel more confident the game will be good, just give us a good shooter! That’s all we want from a wolf, quake, doom game. Plenty of enemies and solid shooter gameplay! done :D

 

[edit - maybe if I had a fucking avatar someone would notice my posts occasionally]

 

Still being relatively young, thanks to restrictive parents and such (first shooter’s I played were the likes of Battlefield 2, Halo and Battlefront) I don’t have the high hopes to be crushed (I have played the original however, but much, much later). I’m intrigued and am hoping for a solid Sci-Fi shooter. I like that the focus is on SP. Here’s to hoping it’s great (Just imagine if it WAS!).

 

YES YES YES YES YES!

Elso, meh…

 

Cool, no MP to cloud my days…

 

Guess that answers Xaar’s request of a proper WolfET successor.

:(

 

Silly game with Wolfenstein name and no new WolfET… They aren’t looking to sell this thing very well.

“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.” The usual bull crap they pull and yet all the videos and photos are completely the opposite. Call it “Nazi mechs vs a sepo”.

 

Would rather no SP and a good successor to RTCW MP :(

 

Edward,

The successors to WolfET were Quake Wars and Brink.

Some might argue terrible, others might argue that people just don’t have the patience for the complexities of a multi objective multiplayer shooter. I think it’s a little from column a, a little from column b.

ET:QW was close, but lacked the pace and feel of WolfET. The different universe also didn’t help sell it as a successor.

Brink was crap and in no way was that a successor to WolfET other than the fact that it had objectives to complete and was a multiplayer FPS.

The Wolfenstein remake from 2009? That was one of the only games i’ve ever returned and was grateful I didn’t buy it digitally.

I borrowed it from a friend and it wasn’t overly great but it was still an ok game. Didn’t get around to finishing it though that wasn’t due to being a bad game.

 

Well finally some decent points for it. Sick of “Every damn game must have multiplayer for it to be viable BLLAARGRGG” I might get this now .. even though it’ll be generic as hell.

 

I actually like the idea of a single player shooter. It’s something different these days rather than the single player being an afterthought.

 

There will never be a true successor to WolfET. The stars aligned perfectly for that game, and I doubt It will happen again — trying or not.

Haha. They were in no way a true successor to RTCW or ET.

Both ETQW and Brink lack significant aspects of the RTCW/ET experience.

Ironically, by adopting aspects of other major franchises, Splash Damage ruined the series’ market distinction/niche. The games longer appealed to people that wanted that ET/RTCW style of game and failed at satisfying the fans of other series’.
