Wolfenstein: The New Order is the latest game in a series which I first came across with Wolfenstein 3D, which set a new benchmark in gaming when it was released in May 1992 by Id Software, and then they trumped that with Doom in December, the following year, both of which I played on PC, but which were also released on a whole stream of consoles over the years, even including machines like the Sega 32X, Atari Jaguar and Panasonic 3DO which, because I missed out on them first time round, I enjoyed an introduction to at Revival 2013.
Now, two new videos have been released, one being the latest installment of the Bethesda Underground video series, ‘Know Your Devs’, where MachineGames’ narrative designer Tommy Tordsson Björk discusses his proudest moments while working on Wolfenstein: The New Order, including writing the Chapter 3 train sequence – one of the many standout moments in the game.
