In Wolfenstein: The New Order, relatively early in the game (spoilers) you make a choice that creates one of two timelines, which in turn effects how certain levels play throughout the game and even determines which characters survive.
Now at a recent event held by Bethesda, and during an interview with creative director Jens Matthies, it was confirmed (via Game Informer) that the choices you made in The New Order will carry over into Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, the sequel to the former that is due this fall.
According to Matthies rather than the normal formula for such things — a save transfer feature — transporting your choices will come in the form of a choice between the two timelines in the prologue before the game begins. Now how much your choices will impact or be relevant in The New Colossus, remains to be seen, but it’s nice to see MachineGames remember that people’s choices in games mean something to them.
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is set to release on October 27th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It will be available via a $59.99 USD standard edition of the game as well as via a classic GI-Joe-themed Collector’s Edition for $99.99 USD. Bethesda have also announced that an official art book from Dark Horse will also be accompanying the game’s launch, as well as confirmed that there will be a season pass supporting three DLC packs.
