Set aside 40 hours of your life for Nazi-shootin' good times.

Machine Games say that it’s worth firing up Wolfenstein: The New Order again once you’re finished, because an early choice made in the game will change things later down the line.
“This game is exclusive single-player, but we’ve built in lots of replay value,” said Creative Director Jens Matthies on Reddit. “Most notably is that the player makes a choice early on the outcome of which opens up an alternate time line which changes the vibe of the story. It’s recommended to do a second play through and see what would have happened if you chose differently.
“I don’t want to give any spoilers, but it changes the vibe of the story to a degree and alters the gameplay somewhat. We think of it as an alternate ending, but instead of it just affecting the final cinematic, it affects the tone of the whole game a little bit.”
Matthies also added that he expects a “single playthrough could end up close to 20 hours”.
