Today Bethesda unveiled the latest installment of the Wolfenstein franchise, Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, that is a stand alone prequel to Wolfenstein: The New Order. Wolfenstein: The Old Blood will release digitally on May 5th 2015 for Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC, retailing in North America for $19.99. The game will take BJ Blazkowicz back to 1946 through an adventure that pans over eight chapters and two interconnected stories, which will release together.
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.
