Wolfenstein: The Old Blood Announced

The Old Blood

Bethesda announced today that MachineGames are bringing out a standalone prequel to Wolfenstein: The New Order called Wolfenstein: The Old Blood. This downloadable title will only be coming to the PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One and it will be priced at $19.99. And with a release date set for May 5th the wait for more Wolfenstein will not be long.

Here is the synopsis for the standalone title from the press release:

The year is 1946 and the Nazis are on the brink of winning World War II. In an effort to turn the tide in the Allies’ favor, 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 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.

If you missed Wolfenstein: The New Order give Glenn’s review of the game a read to see if you missed out on a gem.
