Wolfenstein: The New Order Pre-Order Includes Doom Beta

Of course, many will disagree with the concept of pre-ordering. Many have said that you should wait until reviews are released before making a purchase. Ironically, a couple of these people have also argued against the merits of game reviews, which is food for thought. Still, there is a solid argument for not spending your money blindly. It can be nice to get bonus content for reserving copies, such as developer commentary, but it can easily get ridiculous.

What if I don't own that platform!!!

In this case, if you pre-order Wolfenstein: The New Order, you will get access to the beta for the upcoming Doom game (carefully not called, "Doom 4") inside the box. Unfortunately, they will not provide much more details than that. They will not mention whether it will be single-player or multiplayer, when it will start, how long it will last, or what platforms it will occur on.

"Beta timing and platform options are subject to Bethesda Softworks' discretion."

Personally, I cannot see how this would be possible. Wouldn't it be absolutely terrible PR if a gamer purchased Wolfenstein for a platform that the Doom Beta was not available for? I would have to expect that this is only in there for legal reasons, in case an issue arises. Still, that would absolutely suck. Bethesda does like the PC platform, however. I guess we have that going for us.

Wolfenstein: The New World Order will be available on May 20th in North America.

So I just watched the trailer for this game, which I had no idea was even coming out until I saw this article. Anyway, this game has been done already back in '08! It was called "Turning Point:Fall of Liberty." Exact same story line and even the trailers are very similar. That game sucked a lot though so I never ended up buying it, I hope this one is better.
