Wolfenstein: Youngblood puts a cooperative spin on 1980's Paris

Bethesda has announced "Wolfenstein: Youngblood," a new cooperative entry in series set for release next year. Following up to Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, the game offers the latest timeline in series history, exploring the story of B.J. Blazkowicz's twin daughters in 1980's Paris.

Developed by Machine Games, Wolfenstein: Youngblood maintains the core tropes of the series so far. However, with two protagonists, the game offers support for two-player cooperative play, alongside a traditional solo option.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood is a brand-new co-op game unveiled at the Bethesda BE3 Showcase 2018. The game takes place in 1980, 19 years after BJ Blazkowicz ignited the second American Revolution in Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. Wolfenstein: Youngblood introduces the next Blazkowicz generation to the fight against the Nazis. Play as one of BJ's twin daughters, Jess and Soph, as you search for your missing father in Nazi-occupied Paris.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood is set for a release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC sometime in 2019.
