Wolfenstein: The Old Blood Announced

By Jonathan Barnes, 1 year ago
Full disclosure here, boys and girls, your humble writer just completed Wolfenstein: The New Order yesterday, so today's announcement from Bethesda has me as happy as a little girl.

Announced today on the Wolfenstein Twitter Account, Bethesda and MachineGames have unveiled Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, which will be digitally released on the Xbox One in May.

1946
The Old Blood

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.
Because all the descriptions and sweet vintage art don't amount to a hill of beans in this environment, we have an announcement trailer.


Finally, we've lifted some Enigma Codes screenshots and concept art for this standalone, prequel expansion to The New Order.
