No Multiplayer For Wolfenstein: The New Order

Have A Trailer Too

Bethesda and MachineGames have revealed that Wolfenstein: The New Order won't include multiplayer so as not to dilute the essence of the original game.

Creative director Jens Matthies told Gamespot that working with the Wolfenstein IP is a great honour, and they want to stick to the original singleplayer formula. "It's such a huge part of video game legacy," he said. "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."

"I never then of course dreamed that I was going to be working with it. It’s both an honor and a legacy,”

I daresay that few will be too worried about this, considering the proliferation of awful and unnecessary multiplayer modes over the last few years, but we'll certainly pour one out for RTCW's excellent competitive modes.

As revealed yesterday, Wolfenstein: The New Order sees B.J. Blazkowicz fighting a Nazi army of war mechs in an alternate 1960s. We've got the announcement trailer below in case you missed the link yesterday.

RTCW has some excellent Multiplayer, only spoiled by "pro" players being able to turn off all the effects giving themselves a major advantage.
"Not dilute the essence of the original game".
Well your not making the original game are you? or are you?. This game (to me) is clearer a generic shooter with Wolfenstein label slapped on it to try and generate interest / sales.

Interesting, using Battlestar Galactica imagery and music to generate emotional interest as well.
