Wolfenstein: Young Blood Trailer Reveals a July Release Date
It’s the 1980s, roughly 19 years after the events of Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus. The franchise’s hero, B.J. Blazkowicz, has gone missing. His twin daughters, affectionately dubbed the Terror Twins, are dead set on bringing him home. And from their reactions within today’s Wolfenstein: Young Blood trailer, they’re pretty damn excited about it.
The Terror Twins, Jess, and Soph Blazkowicz have reason to believe that their father is holed up somewhere in Nazi-occupied Paris. They steal the first aircraft they can and head toward France.
Developed by MachineGames, Bethesda touts that Wolfenstein: Young Blood is “the first open-ended co-op adventure in the series, either with a friend or an AI companion.” And to be sure that you’ll always have a friend ready to roll, the publisher has announced the Buddy Pass.
Folks that purchase the Deluxe Edition of Wolfenstein: Young Blood will earn access to the Buddy Pass. With it, you can invite a friend to experience the co-operative experience without forcing them to buy a copy of the game themselves. And you can do this with as many friends as you like.
The Buddy can experience the entire game so long as they’re connected with the person that purchased the Deluxe Edition. However, those jumping into someone else’s game with the Buddy Pass won’t be able to earn achievements or trophies.
The Wolfenstein: Young Blood trailer also teases the preorder incentives and bonuses for those that pick-up the Deluxe Edition. Those that preorder will be able to redeem a New Colossus Jacket power suit skin, B.J.’s U.S. Army power suit skin, the Old Blood Pipe, the Old Blood Knife and the WW2 Weapon Skin Set for all ranged weapons.
If you purchase the Deluxe Edition, you’ll also get the Cyborg Skin Pack. Within it comes the Cyborg player skin, titanium alloy skins for all weapons, a titanium alloy hatchet, a titanium alloy knife, and an armor-boosting pep signal.
Both the Standard Edition and Deluxe Edition of the game are cheaper than typical full releases. The Standard Edition is listed at $29.99 and the Deluxe Edition is going for $39.99. As finally announced in the Wolfenstein: Young Blood trailer, the game releases for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Nintendo Switch on July 26th. Perhaps we’ll see more of the title during Bethesda’s E3 2019 press conference in June.
