Wolfenstein Youngblood Release Date, E3 2019 Gameplay, Co-op - Everything We Know

Here's everything we know about Wolfenstein Youngblood so far, including a release date, gameplay, co-op details, and more.

Wolfenstein Youngblood is merely a month out from releasing, and puts a bit of a spin on the franchise so far. The spin-off game has two players taking up the fight against the Nazis as B.J. Blazkowicz's daughters. In this guide compiling all the details we have on the game so far, we'll be going over the Wolfenstein Youngblood release date, all the gameplay and co-op details you need to know, and more.

Wolfenstein Youngblood Release Date

The Wolfenstein Youngblood release date is July 26, 2019. The game will be releasing on the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch. This marks a nice change from Wolfenstein The New Colossus, which arrived on the Nintendo Switch months after it was released on all other platforms.

Wolfenstein Youngblood E3 2019 Trailer

During Bethesda's E3 2019 Press Conference, a brand new trailer for Wolfenstein Youngblood was revealed. It showed off some more of the frenetic cooperative gameplay, from close up stealth kills to giant rocket launchers and miniguns. You can check out the new Wolfenstein Youngblood trailer above.

Wolfenstein Co-Op Details

Whereas Wolfenstein The New Order and New Colossus were strictly single player games, Youngblood is mixing this up a bit. Wolfenstein Youngblood is a co-op shooter, and you can have a friend join you via the power of the internet (on the same platform only), and play as either Jess or Soph Blazkowicz, as they hunt for their missing father in 1980's Paris.

There are two ways of having a friend join you for a co-op adventure in Wolfenstein Youngblood. Either the both of you purchase one copy of Wolfenstein Youngblood each, so you can hook up on the same platform, or one of you can purchase the Deluxe Edition of the game.

Buying the Deluxe Edition of Wolfenstein Youngblood gives you a special Buddy Pass. This is a strictly one-use pass, that you can use to grant access to Wolfenstein Youngblood for one other player on the same platform as you. Through this, you can have one other person jump in and play Wolfenstein Youngblood with you, and they don't even have to own a copy of the game.

We're not sure if the Buddy Pass lets the other player download the game, but we'll have to wait and see for more details. We should note that if you opt not to play Wolfenstein Youngblood with another player, then the role of the character that you don't select to play as will be filled by an AI companion.

Wolfenstein Youngblood Platforms and Price

We mentioned previously that Wolfenstein Youngblood is coming to the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, launching simultaneously on July 26. But Bethesda won't be charging full price for the game, as the standard edition of Wolfenstein Youngblood will instead be retailing for just $29.99 across all platforms.

We mentioned above that you'll need to purchase the Deluxe Edition of the game in order to get the special Buddy Pass for a friend on the same platform. But this Deluxe Edition only costs $39.99, so it really only costs $40 for two people to play Youngblood on the same platform.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. See our terms & conditions.
