Bethesda have announced Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, a standalone prequel to last year’s Wolfenstein: The New Order.
Set in an alternate timeline version of 1946 where Nazis are on the brink of winning World War II, series hero B.J. Blazkowicz embarks on two missions deep within Bavaria. During first part of his mission, titled Rudi Jäger and the Den of Wolves, you will fight a maniacal prison warden in Castle Wolfenstein. Part two – The Dark Secrets of Helga Von Schabbs – moves to the city of Wulfburg where an obsessed Nazi archaeologist is exhuming mysterious artefacts that threaten to unleash a dark and ancient power. Eep!
Wolfenstein: The Old Blood will be available digitally and in retail for £14.99 / €19.99 / AUD$39.95 from May 5, 2015 for the PS4 and PC, whilst for some reason the Xbox One only gets a digital release. PS3 and Xbox 360 owners are left out this time, even though they got the original game.
