First gameplay footage for Wolfenstein: The New Order revealed

wolfenstein-bannerDual-wielding automatic shotguns confirmed!  Two new gameplay videos for Wolfenstein: The New Order have been revealed, and they are full of the gritty, over-the-top action you’ve come to expect from the series.  Read on to see them for yourself.

Announced earlier today on the official Bethesda Softworks blog, the videos are are part of a large collection of new media previews for the game.  Once again, Save Game’s invitation to the preview was apparently lost in the mail.  How does this keep happening?  Anyway, the two video previews are from CVG and VG247, who are both cool in my book because they use abbreviations for their names, making them way easy to type.

The first video is from CVG.  If you want to skip ahead to the dual wielding shotguns, they’re at 0:36.  Also, be aware of some slight spoilers.

Were those shotguns sick or what?  Next up is VG247, which intercuts more or less the same footage with interviews with creative director Jens  Matthies.

Not gonna lie. Jens’ shirt made me hungry.  While most of the gameplay looked great, the stealth kill really stood out for me.  Keep in mind that Machine Games, the studio developing Wolfenstein, is made up veterans who worked on the Chronicles of Riddick series.  The Riddick games made excellent use of stealth gameplay, and I’m hoping the same will be true of Wolfenstein.  We’ll find out when the games is released later this year on pretty much everything except the Wii U.

Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original Metroid was released. His aging heart can’t take the shock.
