Bethesda opened recently the signup for who bought Wolfenstein The New Order in the pre-sale. Link for those interested.

Heard it was multiplayer only for the alpha. Can anyone confirm if this is true? If it is, then I'm not going to bother. I don't care about the multiplayer.

It's not a sign-up for the alpha. You sign-up for the beta and then a random bunch from the beta group get chosen to preview the alpha as well.

I redeemed my code a while ago and haven't gotten an email.

The head title in the link pretty much confirm that's a multiplayer close alpha. :P

Neither :( :( :( :( :(

Edit:

Real talk tho. The multiplayer looks really slow. Maybe it's just because i was seeing it being played on a console idk.

It looks Halo paced, slow indeed. The gamepads in the footage I've seen don't help I guess.

Sooooo Halo 5 pretending to be Quake 3. And not, in fact, anything resembling Doom. Got it.

I like what I see, honestly. Looks like Halo with extra verticality and chunks of UT and Quake injected in, but there's nothing wrong with that - Halo multiplayer's been fun as hell when I've played it, and there hasn't been a proper Halo game on PC (outside of Russia, anyway) in like eight years, so it's at least filling a welcome gap.

It's nice that they're doing something other than reskinning Doom 2 or Quake 3, at any rate - those games exist, they aren't going anywhere, and the existence of the new game won't detract from them, so they might as well try different directions, no matter how much it makes the grogs puke blood. And besides, just reskinning Q3A multiplayer definitely didn't work for Quake 4...

As long as I can punch dudes, I'm okay with this.

If the marines in the blue team have blue armor like in the video, then how come the marines in the red team have white armor instead of red?

Might be because of this:

@phantombeta.
That explains why I'm always red on Unreal Tournament, and blue in Starcraft. But still, I'd rather see the red armor on the marines for matching aesthetics.
