Wolfenstein: Youngblood, the next installment of the revitalized Wolfenstein series, has a release date! Youngblood will release on July 26, and will be available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch!
Wolfenstein: Youngblood mixes things up in a couple of ways. First up, BJ Blazkowicze has gone to ground. Nobody can find the near superhuman killing machine, but the Nazi forces are still getting up to their industrialized levels of evil. Thankfully, BJ has two daughters who are more than capable of taking on the threat.
The narrative definitely affects the game, as it is designed to be played in coop mode. There is an option to run an AI-controlled companion for those who wish to go it alone, but there is also a very neat way to play with some friends.
People who purchase the Deluxe Edition of the game, priced at $39.99, will get a Buddy Pass. The Buddy Pass can be given to a friend, who then gets to download the game and play it with you. The Deluxe Edition also comes with a suite of cool cosmetic bonuses, including the Cyborg Skin Pack, providing the sisters with sleek and intimidating titanium alloy versions of their Power Suit, guns, combat knives, and hatchets.
Anyone who pre-orders the game will also receive a range of cosmetic options, including The Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Jacket Power Suit, B.J.’s US Army Power Suit, The Wolfenstein: Old Blood Pipe, The Wolfenstein: Old Blood Knife and a WW2 Weapon Skin Set for all ranged weapons.
