Wolfenstein: The New Order trailer claims there’s nowhere to run8 Apr 2014
I’m quite keen on this trend of using old songs as music for game trailers. First there was Dark Souls 2 with Jethro Tull, and now we’ve got Wolfenstein: The New Order with Martha & The Vandellas. Or a cover. I’m not actually sure; it’s been awhile since I’ve listened to Motown.
I’m a little less keen on the trailer itself, but only a little less. There’s some nice stuff in there and – if the trailer’s to be believed – the game itself looks like an entertaining FPS blaster. As soon as the talking starts, though, I can’t help but think of basically any recent military shooter, and if your game’s dialogue is reminding me of Call of Duty: Ghosts…
Still, we’ll see how the actual game itself shapes up. Perhaps it’ll be more excellent bits like that train scene, and less brave American hero soldier gunfight mans. I mean, Bioshock Infinite taught us all how mass-marketing works. Not long until we find out, anyway, as Wolfenstein: The New Order is due out on 20 May.
