Wolfenstein: The New Order is passing on multiplayer

As much as I don't like assuming the worst, the continued inclusion of multiplayer components in games that truly don't need them and would be better off concentrating on single-player has given me no alternative. Which is why it's a relief to hear from GameSpot that MachineGames will not be offering multiplayer in Wolfenstein: The New Order.

I'm unsure who made the decision -- either publisher Bethesda, MachineGames, or both parties -- but job well done. Let Wolfenstein be Wolfenstein. Creative director Jens Matthies considers this project to be "an honor and a legacy," and says that "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."

While The New Order may very well be another "generically dark, monochromatic, FPS, kill-the-Nazi-giant-robot game," in the words of outspoken designer Warren Spector, at least it won't have multiplayer.

'Nowhere to Run' in new Wolfenstein gameplay trailer

I've got kind of a thing for Wolfenstein 3D, since it was one of the first PC games I ever played, but also World War II and alternate histories in general. So excuse me while I indulge in some inappropriate levels of excite...more

Groove to the sounds of German pop while you play Wolfenstein

What goes together better than a free Saturday night for me and a bunch of books about the nuclear disaster in Chernobyl? Why, the '60s and Nazis, of course! That's basically the premise behind Wolfenstein: The New Order, an...more

It's not all shooting in Wolfenstein: The New Order

Wolfenstein: The New Order is as middling as I feared

Wolfenstein: The New Order is a videogame that has guns in it, and you use these guns to kill people. That's about as remarkable a statement as I could rack my brain for after spending three hours with game. As much as some W...more

Wolfenstein: The New Order has the greatest moral choice

While Wolfenstein: The New Order didn't do much for me back at E3, the levels shown during MachineGames' PAX Prime 2013 build felt right. This game isn't going to revolutionize the genre, but it's got snappy gunplay and cree...more
