What you need to know

  • Wolfenstein: Youngblood is a first-person shooter which should launch this week.
  • The game takes place many years after the events of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.
  • The launch trailer focuses on the crazy action.
  • You can preorder it for $30 on the Microsoft Store.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood is an upcoming co-op first-person shooter from MachineGames. The team successfully rebooted the Wolfenstein franchise and managed to tell powerful stories through Wolfenstein: The New Order and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. The studio's new game seems to take a similar approach, even though it's a little lighthearted in terms of dialogue.

The game launches on Friday, but publisher Bethesda just dropped the game's launch trailer. Aside from the quick recap at the start, the majority of the footage focuses on the shooting mechanics. Wolfenstein: Youngblood is filled with a lot of action, and you'll be killed thousands of Nazis along the way.

Unlike Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, Wolfenstein: Youngblood is more of a continuation of the "AAA" game. That's why you can get it for $30 instead of $60. Luckily, it's supposed to have the biggest campaign in a Wolfenstein game to date.
