Computer games fans are eagerly awaiting the release of Wolfenstein: Youngblood. It is going to be soon, that is why more and more details on the novelty keep emerging.
Wolfenstein: Youngblood is a first-person shooter, which is developed by MachineGames in collaboration with Arkane Studios. This game was first announced at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (the biggest conference/exhibition dedicated to video games) in 2018. The Wolfenstein: Youngblood’s release date was July 26, 2019.
In the previous series of the game, the main character was B.J. Blazkowicz – a fictional American soldier who fought against the Nazis during World War 2 and initiated the second American Revolution in about 1960. However, 20 years have passed since then, but political disagreements have not subsided, and the struggle for freedom is still on. Meanwhile, Blazkowicz disappeared without a trace in an unknown direction. Therefore, his two daughters – Jessica and Sofia Blazkowicz, decided to find their father who, according to the information they have received, was captured by the Nazis in Paris. Thus, the main goal of the gameplay is to rescue B.J., as well as to free the city from invaders. The game has a multiplayer mode, so you can play with your friend.
Despite the fact that Wolfenstein: Youngblood is a continuation of a previously started story, it differs significantly from the previous parts. The reason for this is a new developer Lyon Arkane Studios, which has brought another style to the novelty. Thus, Machine Games remains the only company that has been developing all Wolfenstein games. The most important changes are the higher complexity and a new design of the game.
In addition, a player will have an opportunity to choose the sequence of final missions. However, the game has a certain order of missions for gamers not to miss anything important, open further possibilities, and continue the plot.
The trailer of the game was first shown at the E3 2019 in June. It was well-received by fans – the developer tried to find a balance between action and stealth. Another advantage added in this game is the ability to customize the main characters: you can change their equipment and choose any of the special features. According to the developer, there are also a lot of references to famous movies (for example, Escape from New York) in the game.
As mentioned earlier, Wolfenstein: Youngblood can be played alone, choosing one of the female characters, as well as with a friend. By the way, it is the first time when Machine Games introduced a multiplayer mode, and the team does not hide its excitement about gamers’ reaction to this new feature – whether they will like it or be disappointed.
You should learn to play as a team with another gamer, even if you barely know each other. The developers' goal in this regard is to do everything so that the players work together. In this case, both of them will be able to play most effectively.
Bonuses and Packages
The developer offers Buddy Pass for those who are ready to buy the Deluxe Edition of the game. Its price is $40. This package provides the ability to invite friends to the game, even if they do not have its copy. It is enough to send the digital invitation codes to other users, and then one of them can connect to the game.
Another bonus is the Cyborg Skin Pack, which can be used for your character, as well as additional weapons. All this can be bought for real money.
