A leaked multiplayer version of the new Wolfenstein title has made its way onto the Internet.It happens occasionally, and id is the latest developer to have been bitten by a leaked version of an upcoming tile, their new FPS Wolfenstein. id’s community manager Peter Sokal issued the following statement to the community on the official forums:It was brought to our attention on Friday, 7/31 that a build of the Wolfenstein Multiplayer was leaked and is now being distributed illegally through breach of NDA and mirrors posted on the internet. I must warn anyone involved that Activision’s legal department is taking this matter very seriously.

Same applies here on the forums. If you mention that you have acquired this build, you are openly admitting to illegally obtaining the build and will be banned straight away. You have been warned.

With regards to any footage, screenshots and comments posted here and all over the internet, an important thing to keep in mind is that these were not created from a build of the game that was final or consumer ready. There’s nothing we can do about it now except continue working on the game.

Wolfenstein has been designed to retain elements that are the core of the Wolfenstein multiplayer experience, such as distinct classes and objective-based teamplay. We are also introducing new elements to the game with the Veil powers and persistent upgrades. After release we’ll make our SDK available, as well as release updates to address feedback from the competitive community.

We look forward to seeing you online upon release.As this is a build that is not consumer ready, it’s unlikely it will have any major impact on sales of the game but it’s obviously something id are very concerned about so close to the game’s final release. If you spot it, our advice is to avoid it and wait for the full game which is released on the 21st of this month.Thanks VE.
