Wolfenstein: The New Order

Recommended Posts

Wolfenstein: The New Order by MachineGames, will arrive for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC at the end of the year, Bethesda just announced over at GameSpot. (Versions for next-gen consoles are also coming.) That’s the debut trailer. The game is set in 1960 but, yes, Nazis will still be the bad guys.

That’s because they won World War II, at least for purposes of this story. So B.J. Blazkowicz is back in action against the ruling order, charged with mounting an “impossible counter-offensive” to overthrow the Nazi regime.

Nazi Mechs and other superweapons feature into this alternate reality, but evidently Jimi Hendrix still was born and managed to cover “All Along the Watchtower” seven years before Bob Dylan wrote it.

No multiplayer? Day one buy. I'd love a long, in depth campaign in a shooter for once.

Thats a plus for me too. A game made without expending half their resources on multiplayer sounds great.

This is by a completely different dev so don't judge it solely on the last game.

 

MachineGames did a great job with The Darkness imo. That was a hidden gem game on the ps3 that not many people played or probably even heard about.

Bethesda has delayed Wolfenstein: The New Order.

The Nazi-blasting shooter was originally intended to roll out this year, but it now won’t hit until 2014.

Speaking to Polygon Bethesda's Pete Hines explained that the game simply isn’t ready yet, due in part to the fact it’s launching on both current and next-gen systems.

"Working on next-gen and current gen definitely has an impact,” he said. “You're developing for two different things. The fact that the next-gen stuff is still moving is also definitely a factor.

"But the most important thing was definitely just looking where it was at, what they needed to polish. Because it's just not trying to be a shooter, bcause it's trying to be a shooter that also has driving elements, story elements, narrative, stealth sections - each one of those has to be excellent," he added.

Bad news, but we’d rather suffer a delay for a GOOD game, rather than get a crap one on time.

 

Shit :(

The last wolfenstien was sick! With those crystals and stuff i thought it was mad.

Return to castle wolfenstien was also a great game.

 

I like these style of games. Seeing that Bestheda is making it - going from fallout games hopefully it should be a rich story!

I didn't realise it was being made by Bethesda.

I won't bother paying money for this game until Fallout New Vegas actually makes it to the home screen without crashing on my PC.

 

I might be waiting a while....

I wasn't a fan of Fallout New Vegas.

I was a fan of Fallout 3.

 

They do make good games albeit very buggy.

Polygon

The new Wolfenstein managed to unsettle me for a different reason. I don't get sick playing first-person shooters, but its display of graphic violence and Nazi-inflicted atrocity got to me. One sequence in particular from the game's first chapter disturbed me, enough to be convinced that developer MachineGames is making the new Wolfenstein a solid, old-school shooter wrapped around a chilling horror game.[/indent]

 

Game Informer

I sat down for my demo recently in New York with a clear set of expectations. I knew that there would be Nazis (and a plentiful supply of armaments to dispose of them). I was aware of the giant robotic dogs and heavily armored stormtroopers. I came prepared for a world dominated by evil.

 

I was not prepared to care about the characters. I won’t kid you; Wolfenstein is very much a shooter dyed in the blood of its predecessors. You pick up discarded helmets and robotic armor pieces (manually, and not by walking over them), which somehow translate into protection for protagonist William “BJ” Blazkowicz. You find food and scattered health packs that immediately restore and “overcharge” your health.[/indent]

 

Joystiq

There's little in the opening hours to suggest MachineGames' shooter is as revolutionary as its tyrannical fuhrer, not that the game is professing to change the world, really. I'd like to see more games employ its retro-coated take on rechargeable health, displaying the health in numbers and having it recharge in segments of 20. Meanwhile, a perks system rewards feats like killing two enemies with one grenade or making ten dual-wield kills, and it offers bonuses like vampiric health absorption and greater dual-wield dismemberment. There's a decent balance of feats I achieve naturally and ones I undertake more artificially.[/indent]

 

Venturebeat

But this new Wolfenstein isn’t leading you by the nose the entire time. Every level in the demo branched out multiple times into wider gunfight arenas with several methods of approach. These paths are usually split between a stealthy and guns-blazing method of confrontation. Blazkowicz can traverse buildings making up a Nazi checkpoint by traveling across patios or rooftops, by kicking down doors, or by speeding down a zip line. Health packs scattered throughout the levels provide the only way for you to regain energy — one of a few callbacks to Wolfenstein’s roots.[/indent]

 

VG247

As a largely linear, single-player-only experience, Wolfenstein: The New Order is relying on the strength of its narrative and the entertainment factor of its gunplay to impress prospective players and early impressions suggest MachineGames is both willing and able to provide references to the past while grounding its mechanics in the present. However, while instances of dark humour and allusions to gruesome events have no problem sitting side-by-side, the peculiar earnestness of Blazkowicz’s po-faced delivery often makes him stand out in this extraordinary world of deliberately unhinged Nazi commanders and giant robot dogs.[/indent]

 

Push Square

Standard controls apply, with the PlayStation 4’s triggers helping to bring the weighty, well-balanced gunplay to its brilliant best. Speaking of which, the guns feel incredibly powerful, and the game doesn’t shy away from the destructive power such weaponry would yield. Noggins pop like watermelons when you snap off a satisfying headshot, and the outstanding audio design makes each kill feel even more visceral.[/indent]

 

CVG

The shooting itself feels good: we used a trusty ol' assault rifle during most of our session, which can be dual-wielded, like any other weapon, for maximum death. The New Order mixes common duck-and-cover and circle strafing manoeuvres with a leaning system, which proves more essential as the game progresses - especially for stealthy approaches.

 

Running around like a tank is not viable, though standing still is equally dangerous: enemies flank from all directions and manageable tiffs can turn nasty very quickly. This, combined with immediate use collectibles and the constant need to scavenge for health and ammunition, makes The New Order a pleasingly old-school and often thrillingly challenging FPS. A Call of Duty shooting gallery this ain't.[/indent]
