PAX East 2014 Showcase

PAX East seemed like a whirlwind this year! We laughed (a lot). We cried (not really). Most of all we had fun with everyone who visited the booth and those that came to our Wolfenstein community event — a Pop Muzik Showcase brought to you by your faux-vorite record label, Neumond Recordings.

We were happy to see so many of you having a great time — whether it was playing Wolfenstein: The New Order, dancing to the German music of the party, or watching The Evil Within gameplay presentation. Below are some of our favorite highlights spanning the course of the PAX three days.

If there are any photos of your PAX experience you’d like us to share, send them over to us on Facebook, Twitter, or email them to us: bethblog@bethsoft.com.

Updated Wolfenstein Pre-Order FAQ w/ DOOM Beta

Since announcing DOOM Beta pre-order incentive for Wolfenstein: The New Order, we’ve received plenty of questions on how the beta and redemption process will work. This week we have updated the Beta FAQ with new information.

We hope this answers many of your questions. And no, we’re not ready to talk about specifics on DOOM itself.

DOOM BETA FAQ – This information is subject to change without notice. Please check back for updates.

I’VE JUST PRE-ORDERED WOLFENSTEIN, WHERE’S MY DOOM BETA KEY?
A key code will be located on an insert that’s included inside your boxed copy of Wolfenstein: The New Order when it releases on May 20th. Once the key code is redeemed, you’ll be registered to participate in the DOOM beta once it begins. Check back at wolfenstein.com/doom for updated information.

DO I NEED TO SPECIFY WHAT PLATFORM I WANT TO PLAY THE DOOM BETA?
No. DOOM beta access correlates to your pre-ordered Wolfenstein: The New Order platform. If you purchase an Xbox 360 or Xbox One version of Wolfenstein: The New Order, you will receive an invitation to the Xbox One DOOM beta. PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 purchasers will receive an invite to the PS4 DOOM beta. All PC purchases will receive an invite to the PC DOOM beta. The DOOM beta will only be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

IF I PRE-ORDER THE GAME DIGITALLY, WILL I STILL GET ACCESS TO THE DOOM BETA?
We are working with Steam, Microsoft, and Sony to help ensure that persons pre-ordering digitally from Steam, Microsoft, and Sony will receive access to the DOOM beta. Other digital retailers’ processes and/or participation may vary. We suggest contacting your preferred retailer directly for additional information.
