Wolfenstein: Youngblood goes up for preorder, 'Buddy Pass' lets friends play free

Many months ago, Bethesda announced Wolfenstein: Youngblood. Wolfenstein: Youngblood is set in the distant future where B.J. Blazkowicz has gone missing and it's up to you to find him. Luckily, you have help this time around and won't have to wait too long. Wolfenstein: Youngblood, the series' first modern co-op game, is going to release on July 26 for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood has been available on Amazon for quite some time, but it's now up on the Microsoft Store as a digital preorder. Those who preorder the game will receive additional cosmetic bonuses through the Wolfenstein: Youngblood Legacy Pack. Legacy Pack owners will gear up with some of B.J. Blazkowicz's most iconic outfits and weapons from the Wolfenstein franchise.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood will throw you — and a friend — back in time to 1980's Paris, fighting the Reich's war machine as one of B.J. Blazkowicz's twin daughters, Jess or Soph. Terrorize the goose-stepping fascists with a friend or team up with a computer-controlled companion to obliterate Nazis while searching for your missing father.

Standard Edition

The Standard Edition only comes with the base game, and doesn't include the "Buddy Pass" so your friends will have to buy the title to play it with you.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood - Standard Edition costs $30.

Deluxe Edition

The Deluxe Edition includes the Buddy Pass, allowing you and a friend to play the entire game together, even if they don't own the game themselves. The Deluxe Edition also comes with a suite of cool cosmetic bonuses, including the Cyborg Skin Pack, providing the sisters with sleek and intimidating titanium alloy versions of their power suits, guns, combat knives, and hatchets.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood - Deluxe Edition costs $40.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood also features Xbox One X enhancements. According to the Microsoft Store listing, the renders at 4K resolution on the console. Just like Wolfenstein: The New Colossus, the title probably uses a dynamic resolution to maintain 60 frames per second gameplay.

  • Nice to see the switch getting some love too! The last wolfenstein game that came out for the switch performed well.
  • I hope it’s not 30 FPS again. Probably will be though.
