A standalone prequel to 2014’s Wolfenstein: The New Order, titled Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, has been announced and given a release date, and it’s coming soon.
Wolfenstein: The Old Blood is releasing digitally on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC for $19.99 on May 5. MachineGames’ successful Wolfenstein reboot opened with hero BJ Blazkowicz storming the compound of the villain Deathshead, and The Old Blood follows the events leading up to that attack in the alternate world where World War II is still being waged in 1946.
A PlayStation Blog post revealed the game and included a short gameplay trailer, but the game will be livestreamed during PAX East on Twitch. Invisible Gamer’s Gabe Gurwin said the first game “was a blast to play” in our Wolfenstein: The New Order review.
