Bethesda Reveals Wolfenstein: The Old Blood For Xbox One
Wolfenstein: The New Order is getting a standalone prequel later this year, titled Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, Bethesda has announced.
“Diving back into the world of Wolfenstein has really been fun for us,” said Jerk Gustafsson, executive producer at MachineGames. “We’ve enjoyed exploring the events leading up to The New Order. We think fans will really enjoy the story, all the action and, of course, jumping back into the combat with new weapons.”
It wouldn’t be a Wolfenstein game without a little bombast, and it sounds like The Old Blood will have plenty of that.
Set in 1946, series ‘hero’ B.J. Blazkowicz must set out on a two-part mission deep within the Bavaria in an effort to stop the Nazis from winning World War 2. Part one of Wolfenstein: The Old Blood – Rudi Jäger and the Den of Wolves – pits BJ Blazkowicz against a maniacal prison warden as he breaks into Castle Wolfenstein in an attempt to steal the coordinates to General Deathshead’s compound.
In part two – The Dark Secrets of Helga Von Schabbs – Blazkowicz’s search for the coordinates leads him to the city of Wulfburg where an obsessed Nazi archaeologist is exhuming mysterious artefacts that threaten to unleash a dark and ancient power.
Wolfenstein: The New Order will be available digitally 5 May 2015 on Xbox One.
