Wolfenstein: The Old Blood revealed

Standalone Prequel to the Award-Winning Game
Wolfenstein: The New Order Available May 5, 2015

March 4, 2015 (Rockville, MD) - Bethesda Softworks, a ZeniMax Media company, today announced Wolfenstein®: The Old Blood™, the standalone prequel to the critically-acclaimed first-person action-adventure shooter, Wolfenstein®: The New Order™. In development at MachineGames, Wolfenstein: The Old Blood will be available digitally for $19.99 on May 5, 2015 for Xbox One®, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®4 system, and PC.

The year is 1946 and the Nazis are on the brink of winning World War II. In an effort to turn the tide in the Allies’ favor, B.J. Blazkowicz must embark on an epic, two-part mission deep within Bavaria. 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 – our hero's search for the coordinates leads him to the city of Wulfburg where an obsessed Nazi archaeologist is exhuming mysterious artifacts that threaten to unleash a dark and ancient power.

“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.”

Wolfenstein: The New Order, released in May 2014, enjoyed worldwide critical and commercial success with over 75 Game of the Year awards, and was hailed by The New York Times as “one of the very best releases of the year.”

The very last second of this trailer? Could be, could be not. Doesn't seem to be a major focus though, maybe for a few surprise moments.

Another Wolf game without MP? I want to see MP with old RTCW maps remastered. Otherwise it will be another 'wait until it's 20 dollars on Steam' game.

It will be 15 dollars at launch...

It is that price.

This is Machinegames who've done mostly single-player focused shooters as former Starbreeze, not Splash Damage or Nervous Software that did the MP for Return to Castle Wolfenstein. If you're only into a Wolfenstein game for the MP, that's a shame cause you're missing out on a great experience.

Why hasn't anybody questioned the price tag? isn't it too good to be true? does this mean the storyline is 1/3 the length? too many questions, i know.

someone on neogaf thread mentioned it's going to be around 10hrs, not sure how legit was that guy.

Anyway, didn't expected more Wolfenstein that soon! Good thing.

I will probably get it then, and maybe the previous game if it is on sale.

After enjoying a lot The New Order, I will definitely get this at launch.

Welp, this series is dead.

Looks very cool, I enjoyed the New Order so will most likely pick this up aswell..

But tbh, I really wish this game had multiplayer.. Be it co-op or oldskool DM.. Being SP only it offers little to no replayability..

Perhaps not great in terms of replay value, but The New Order was still a good few hours of fun, well worth the price of admission imo :)

Wolfenstein: The New Order had at least a 2nd playthrough replayability, don't want to spoil anything for people who didn't play it, but depending on a certain decision, you got Health upgrades or Armor upgrades and some different scenes and dialogue. Both were quite good.

Like Far Cry Blood Dragon, Wolfenstein The Old Blood will be a stand-alone, therefore it do not require to have the very friendly Wolfenstein The New Order to browse the 8 chapters in the program.
