The next Wolfenstein brings together fresh ideas never seen in the iconic franchise before. The new Nazi killing shooter will change the views of veteran players while still maintaining what fans have always enjoyed.
Playing in singleplayer or coop, you play as one of B.J.’s daughters, Jess and Soph, who are searching for their missing father.
Taking place in the 80s, players will get a chance to shoot up Nazis in France while trying to save the man who was always the hero. His daughters will make for a big game changer in the narrative as B.J. takes a smaller role.
Direct Sequel or Spin-off?
Similar to Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, this is a spin-off of the main entries. Youngblood will continue the main storyline despite being a side entry.
How Coop Works
Playing with a friend has each of you control one of the twin daughters of the ultimate Nazi slayer. This will not be a couch coop experience, everything is online when playing with another person. While gamers who want to go solo will have an AI companion.
Customization, more gear, and abilities will open up the gameplay. Completing main and side missions will level you up to gain new equipment and other ways to enhance your Nazi killing skills.
More Open, Just Not Open World
A non-linear structure, influenced by Arkane Studios who have partnered with Machine Games for this new installment. From the studio’s work on Dishonored will make for more open levels to discover side missions and allowing more freedom in the game’s progression.
Cosmetic microtransactions like skins will be available. However, anything can be purchased with in-game currency.
Standard: A $30 purchase that comes with the base game, New Colossus jacket power suit skin, B.J.’s U.S. Army power suit skin, Old Blood pipe, and knife, WW2 themed skins for all weapons.
Deluxe: The $40 deluxe edition comes with everything listed above including a buddy pass for a friend to play without purchasing the game, cyborg skin pack for the characters and their weaponry.
