Slaying alternate reality Nazis and Nazi robots in MachineGames' Wolfenstein: The New Order will be a strictly single-player affair, according to a report from Gamespot which says the title has "no multiplayer component."
Recent entries in the Wolfenstein series, including Raven Software's Wolfenstein and Splash Damage's Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, featured online multiplayer components, but it appears MachineGames is focusing its efforts on The New Order's story-driven experience. Publisher Bethesda Softworks has had success with single-player only games, like the recent Dishonored and The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim.
Wolfenstein: The New Order was announced earlier this week as a first-person shooter set in the 1960s. The game takes place in an alternate universe in which the Nazis prevailed in World War II, have taken over the world and have built an army of giant robots.
Bethesda will release Wolfenstein: The New Order on Windows PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and next-generation consoles, with the game expected to ship in the fourth quarter of this year.
