[size=6]Wolfenstein: The New Order will be single player only game[/size]
by John Callaham



Wolfenstein: The New Order, the just announced new game in the long running shooter series, won't be giving its players any multiplayer action this time out. The decision by developer MachineGames and publisher Bethesda Softworks was to make the game a single player experience.

As GameSpot reports, in both a prose and video preview, the decision was made to make Wolfenstein: The New Order an action-adventure shooter with a more immersive environment. The video shows some concept artwork from the game, such as the one shown above, but actual gameplay has yet to be seen. Wolfenstein: The New Order is due out later this fall for the PC, Xbox 360, PS3 and next generation consoles.

The game has already come under fire from an unusual source. Well know game designer Warren Spector, best known for his work on the first two Deus Ex games, took to his Facebook page to express his feelings on what he believes will be yet another shooter, saying, "Did we need a generically dark, monochromatic, FPS, kill-the-Nazi-giant-robot game."

In another Facebook post later this morning, Spector has apologized to the game's development for his remarks, adding, "And to everyone who pointed out that I didn't know enough about the game to judge, well, you were right. Consider this my mea culpa."

It'll be pirated to hell and back then, most games which get lots of sales nowadays have good multiplayer because you can never play multiplayer on pirated games.

What's with companies putting multiplayer in games for the sake of multiplayer.

Some of the highest selling games are single player only(Fallout, Batman, etc), sure they got pirated, but so do games with multiplayer
Adding multiplayer as an anti-piracy measure is stupid, they'll still pirate it, just they'd only play the single player campaign.

Yeah, so long as it's a good single player game with nice replay value, people will buy it.

Some of my best gaming memories was playing through the campaign in coop mode as far back as Doom. Most games if they have multiplayer it is some last minute thrown together thing that is just a few maps and a deathmatch mode. Hardly worth wasting developer time on. People who want to play competitively will go to the titles that feature solid competitive multiplayer.

But I wish there were more coop multiplayer games. Even if the story doesn't make any sense with two players, I still have fun gunning down baddies with buds.

Good. Too many game companies focusing on MP and putting in crappy SP experiences these days.

I don't know who told you that, because I have not seen a multi-player game yet that hasn't been hacked to allow online play. It may take a little longer, but it's always possible and won't curb piracy.

Great news. Don't play (online) multiplayer modes and it's nice to see they put all of their focus into the single player campaign. Hopefully it will be awesome.

SP only means they should work hard on gameplay and the story, I'm happy about this. Too often devs just bother with MP and **** on us SP loving gamers.

Aye but they don't have Anti-Cheat, I tried MW3 pirated MP once every server I'd join would be filled with hackers and usually one person in the middle with a machine gun and 200 kills, I completely disagree MP does help against piracy it might not completely stop it but then nothing does.

Actually that's abit false, there is many games you can play online with which you download, steam hacks etc but again its your account that you play on unless you make another.
But on the game it self i'm looking forward to it, can't wait!! played this series since the start!!
