Earlier in the year we saw intriguing screenshots of a mysterious new game from publishing juggernaut Bethesda. Later we found out that the game was another Wolfenstein game, a franchise that has been published by Activision in the past.


The problem was, this wasn’t what most people wanted. There were many other series’ that they wanted a sequel to such as Fallout. As well as “not wanting” the game, it seemed like a very random choice with nothing to tease it except those few screenshots.


But recently Bethesda’s VP of PR and marketing Pete Hines sat down to discuss the potential of the new Wolfenstein.


He said:


“We’re not doing Wolfenstein because we think, ‘oh, everybody thinks of Wolfenstein when they think first-person shooters.’ We’re not that naive. But we do think there’s something to this world.”


“…it still has the crazy, over-the-top action, but it has all these other elements to it now, they’re (MachineGames, the developers) adding character and story and other stuff that’s not just a straight-up shooter all the time. It’s not monotonous. You’re starting to get a little taste of that. I think it’s hard to put in the full context of what it feels like across the whole game, as you’re taking that roller-coaster ride.”


Wolfenstein: The New Order is set to be released later this year. The game will be playable on the Xbox 360, PS3 and 4, and PC.


So what do you think about Bethesda’s decision to continue Wolfenstein, a franchise untouched since 2009?
