The upcoming first-person shooter Wolfenstein: The New Order is one of the most anticipated games of the year. Being exclusively focused on its single-player campaign, the video game will take you around 20 hours to complete if you collect everything and explore all the environments the game has to offer, according to MachineGames Creative Director Jens Matthies.
Invited to a Reddit AMA, Matthies pointed out that the gamers will be encouraged to play the game at least twice „especially to explore the alternate timeline”. He then explained the alternate timeline comes after making a pivotal decision during the game’s story, at which point the “vibe” of the story changes.
“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,” he said. “It’s recommended to do a second play through and see what would have happened if you chose differently.” But it is unclear how the paths will differ.
When he was asked about a sequel to Wolfenstein: The New Order, he responded that he would “love to do a sequel,” and „it would be a lot of fun to make an Enemy Territory style multiplayer game.” „But MachineGames will never make both at the same time. We find that the best possible results come from having the whole team focused on a singular experience for the duration of the project,” Matthies said.
He also stated that the game „will run with minimal visual disparity at 60fps/1080p on all platforms.”, referring to the new generation of consoles.
Wolfenstein: The New Order launches on May 20 for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC. Don´t forget, if you preorder the game you will have access to the upcoming Doom beta, which will be available only on the Xbox One, PS4, and PC!
