Wolfenstein: The New Order doesn’t release until next year, but there’s plenty of new coverage worth checking out courtesy of Gamescom and PAX Prime.
Starting with VG247, watch a new Gamescom interview with creative director Jens Matthies.
GamesRadar — “Based on today’s playthrough, The New Order could be the most genuine, most satisfying follow-up the original games have ever had. It looks, sounds and feels completely modern, but the staunch dedication to creating fast, smooth, brutal fun on a moment-to-moment basis resurrects Wolfenstein’s spirit as efficiently as its occult Nazis resurrect their own dead.”
Xbox 360 Achievements – “A barnstorming demo, MachineGames has left us in no doubt that Wolfenstein: The New Order is a hot prospect, controlling like a dream and boasting a number of memorable story beats…”
The Gamers Hub — “ Not only was this my game of Gamescom 2013, I honestly cannot wait to hear, see and play more of this promising title.”
AusGamers — “… The New Order is definitely hitting all the right notes.”
IGN — Greg Miller joins PAX attendee Gavin Brown to share impressions from playing early sections of the game. Find out what they think.
The Sixth Axis — “This is a game which knowingly calls back to the old school of thinking, and it’s something which is just rammed home as soon as you discover that you can dual wield machine guns. It’s ridiculous, and absolutely fantastic.”
Destructoid – Jim Sterling & Jordan Devore explain why they’re taken by the gameplay.
As announced this summer, Wolfenstein: The New Order releases next year. Stay tuned for updates

Lucky you. The 7th ESO “Ask Us Anything” Variety Pack is up at ElderScrollsOnline.com. Questions cover PvP, achievements, guilds, and more. Here’s a sampling…
Can you explain the guild stores a bit more? Do I have to be a member of a guild to buy from it or is it a public store in which a guild of crafters and merchants offer their products? Will I be able to set my own prices or would this be regulated by the guild leaders? – By John Connor
You will need to be a member of a guild to use its guild store; right now, there isn’t a public storefront for them. If you have permission (configurable by the guild leader) to sell items on the guild store, you’ll be able to set your own prices.
Visit ElderScrollsOnline.com to see more questions the ESO team was sent back in time to answer.
Normally you expect to find Draugrs lurking in dungeons and tombs of Skyrim. This weekend a pair made their way across the country.
Skyrim fans Bill & Brittany Doran made their annual trip to Atlanta’s Dragoncon dressed as a pair of Draugr Deathlords. Taking advantage of the long weekend. we were fortunate to also see them on the final day of PAX Prime in Seattle. They posed for [many] pics, checked out The Elder Scrolls Online, and were nice enough to talk to everyone about their costumes.
Be sure to check out Bill’s blog, Punished Props, for an extensive look at the countless hours spent creating the Draugrs’ weapons, armor, and body suits. And as a bonus, see the costumes in action in the video below.
