We’re just over a week away from May 20 and the release of Wolfenstein: The New Order. With the release so close, Creative Director Jens Matthies took to Reddit to answer questions posed by fans and reveal some great pieces of information.
If you’ve been wondering about the frame rate and resolution of Wolfenstein, we now know it will run at 60 fps and 1080p, regardless of platform, with “with minimal visual disparity.” Impressive, especially considering the game is coming out for the PS3 and Xbox 360 as well as PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
Replay value is another question that came up. According to Matthies, it definitely has a lot of replay value, to the point where you might want to play through twice. You’ll make a major choice early on in the story that determines which path the game will take, and “it changes the vibe of the story to a degree and alters the gameplay somewhat.” That’s pretty cool. We knew from the trailers that The New Order would have options, but we didn’t expect a branching storyline to that degree.
When asked about non-combat sections, he said there are some of those in the game, and although the game is focused on action, it can be considered “more as an action adventure than a straight up shooter.”
Wolfenstein: The New Order sounds like it could be a really cool game, so we were glad to learn that there’s a chance it could have a sequel, if it’s successful. What do you think?Tags: replay value, sequel, the new order, wolfenstein

Injustice: Gods Among Us was a pretty big success, so we aren’t surprised that it’s getting a sequel. What might come as a surprise, however, is that a sequel was announced last week.
The announcement came during a Wondercon panel, and it was overshadowed by the misinterpretation that Batman: Arkham Knight was delayed until 2015. It has since been clarified that the spokesperson said Arkham Knight would release this year, but the audience’s cheers were so loud, many people misheard the following announcement about a game releasing in 2015, and thought it was about Arkham Knight.
The 2015 game is a sequel to Injustice: Gods Among Us. We don’t have a specific release date or knowledge on which platforms it’s coming to (although we expect it to hit both the PS4 and the Xbox One), but we’ll let you know when we learn more.Tags: gods among us, injustice, sequel
