Apparently an early choice "opens up an alternate timeline" which changes the vibe of the campaign, so there's "lots of incentive" to make that second run-through.
Matthies also affirmed that, whether on PC or a next-gen console, Wolfenstein will run with "minimal visual disparity" at 60 frames at 1080p on all platforms.
"We've built in lots of replay value," Matthies posted in a . "Most notably the player makes a choice early on the outcome of which opens up an alternate timeline which changes the vibe of the story. It's recommended to do a second play through and see what would have happened if you chose differently."
"...I don't want to give any spoilers, but it changes the vibe of the story to a degree and alters the gameplay somewhat. We think of it as an alternate ending, but instead of it just affecting the final cinematic, it affects the tone of the whole game a little bit."
"If you collect everything and explore everywhere I think a single play through could end up close to 20 hours," he added. "But there's also lots of incentive to make a second play through, especially to explore the alternate timeline."
Wolfenstein: The New Order releases on PC, Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One and PS4 May 20th.
