Wolfestein: The New Order was an incredible return to the spotlight for a series I had long ago assumed all but dead, wowing gamers and critics alike around the world.
Now it seems we’ll be getting another slice of action on May 5th as Bethesda and Machine Gun Games have announced a standlone prequel titled Wolfenstein: The Old Blood will arrive on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 and PC at the low price of £14.99
Here’s the set-up:
- The year is 1946 and the Nazis are on the brink of winning World War 2. In an effort to turn the tide in the Allies’ favour, B.J. Blazkowicz must embark on an epic, two-part mission deep within Bavaria.
- Part one of Wolfenstein: The Old Blood – Rudi Jäger and the Den of Wolves – pits B.J. Blazkowicz against a maniacal prison warden as he breaks into Castle Wolfenstein in an attempt to steal the coordinates to General Deathshead’s compound.
- In part two – The Dark Secrets of Helga Von Schabbs – our hero’s search for the coordinates leads him to the city of Wulfburg where an obsessed Nazi archaeologist is exhuming mysterious artefacts that threaten to unleash a dark and ancient power.
The trailer really is pretty cool, too, neatly mixing the gameplay with some great nods toward classic trailers.
