Bethesda have taken us by surprise today with an announcement for Wolfenstein: The Old Blood. The game is an all-new standalone prequel to last year’s Wolfenstein: The New Order.
Wolfenstein: The Old Blood takes hero BJ Blazkowicz back to the year 1946 in an adventure that spans eight chapters and two interconnected stories that will lead into the events you know and love from The New Order.
Part one of Wolfenstein: The Old Blood – Rudi Jäger and the Den of Wolves — pits BJ 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 artifacts that threaten to unleash a dark and ancient power.
Wolfenstein: The New Blood will be available digitally and in retail for £14.99 from May 5th for the PlayStation 4 and PC, and digital only for the Xbox One.
See the live gameplay debut live from PAX East 2015 on Twitch.TV/Twitch. Streams start at 10:30 am EST on both Friday, March 6th and Saturday, March 7th
