After a busy launch week for The Evil Within, it’s nice to catch up on news for our other 2014 releases — Wolfenstein: The New Order & The Elder Scrolls Online — while some Sunday afternoon football (sorry Saints fans… Go Lions!). Join me as I catch on the following:
ESO Game Director Matt Firor talks about what’s new with The Elder Scrolls Online — including details on Update 5 and the game’s new loyalty program — in the October Edition of ‘The Road Ahead’.
What made Wolfenstein: The New Order’s story one of the most compelling of 2014? In a new feature with Digital Trends, learn from Creative Director Jens Matthies why nothing in the game is done by accident. Here’s an excerpt…
“It’s never a case where things get developed in a vacuum from each other. It’s always a collaboration. There’s always lot of conflict that arises through that; I’ll have a story idea and somebody else will have a gameplay idea, and they might be conflicting. Then we negotiate and discuss around that and try to find a solution where all parties are happy. It’s not until we get there that we move along to the next problem.”
Reminder: Both of these games are up for Golden Joystick nominees. ESO is up for Best Online Game, while Wolfenstein is up for Best Gaming Moment, Best Story, and the big one… Game of the Year! Voting for the Golden Joysticks ends tomorrow (10/20)… so show your support today!
