Morning DLC: Video Games News And Rumors 6/24/14

MachineGames has said it’s interested in doing a sequel to the recently released – and well received – Wolfenstein: The New Order.

In an interview with Giant Bomb, creative director Jens Matthies said the studio has “a very, very clear idea” of what it would like to accomplish with a sequel.

“We would love to do a sequel,” said Matthies. “We have a very, very clear idea of what we accomplished with this game, and what we want to accomplish with a sequel.”


A private university in Chicago has become the first in the country to make video games a varsity sport. Robert Morris University-Illinois says it will offer between 45 and 50 athletic scholarships to competitive gamers who play an online, multiplayer battle-arena video game called League of Legends.

Kurt Melcher, the associate athletic director, has been a gamer himself. He says that in addition to the scholarships, which are worth about $19,000 each, the school will also be looking to hire a video game coach. (Unlike other team coaches, whose job is to get players to practice more and harder, Melcher told Inside Higher Ed that the job for a video game coach is to exhort the team to ease up on the all-night Red Bull marathons and actually include some balance in their lives.)


Sony will release the blue PlayStation 4 controllers across North America this fall.

Now Sony has confirmed, via the PlayStation Facebook page, that it will be “coming stateside this fall”.
