Wolfenstein: Youngblood will be releasing worldwide on July 26, Machine Games and Bethesda revealed today. The spin-off co-op shooter will be available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Interestingly, it seems as though Arkane Studios Lyon is involved in the development.
Just below, you can see the debut gameplay trailer for Youngblood. We'll be going back in time to 1980's Paris, playing as either Jess or Soph, twin daughters of usual protagonist B.J. Blazkowicz.
While you can play as either Jess or Soph, you can have a friend play as the other twin, or an AI companion can do the job. Bethesda revealed that if you purchase the Deluxe Edition of Wolfenstein: Youngblood, you'll get a special Buddy Pass. This pass will allow a friend (on the same platform) to step into the game and play with you, without having to own a copy of Youngblood themselves.
The plot of Youngblood will revolve around Jess and Soph searching for their missing father, Blazkowicz. It's unclear whether the comatose protagonist will play a part in this spin-off, but we can expect the usual chaotic action on the streets of occupied Paris.
The Deluxe Edition also comes with some cosmetic items for the twins, including the Cyborg Skin Pack that features titanium alloy versions of their Power Suit, guns, combat knives and hatchets.
There are also plenty of items available for anyone who pre-orders Youngblood, including some of BJ's most iconic outfits:
- The Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Jacket Power Suit
- B.J.’s US Army Power Suit
- The Wolfenstein: Old Blood Pipe
- The Wolfenstein: Old Blood Knife
- A WW2 Weapon Skin Set for all ranged weapons
