Jens Matthies Talks Wolfenstein: The New Order, Waging War Within Machine & That Scene With Jenny in The Darkness

We were fairly positive about the upcoming Wolfenstein: The New Order in our preview this week, and by fairly positive, we mean very. It’s no surprise that some of the people behind it were some of the people behind Starbreeze’s big hits, such as The Darkness and Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay.
Jens Matthies, Creative Director on Wolfenstein: The New Order, was one of those people. In fact, he was very influential when it came to creating that infamous Jenny scene in The Darkness… you know, the one from the couch. Great scene, by the way.
We caught up with Matthies recently to talk all things Wolfenstein: The New Order, from what were the pillars they forged the new game upon, all the way to what Matthies makes of a certain Warren Spector quote about their game. Gulp! Oh, and yes, we have a good chat about the aforementioned Jenny scene. I guess what I’m saying is, don’t miss this one, folks!
Oh, and don’t forget to read all our pre-E3 Bethesda previews, from Wolfenstein: The New Order to Shinji Mikami’s The Evil Within.
