Bethesda Announces Wolfenstein: The Old Blood

Bethesda, 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 and in retail for £14.99 / €19.99 / AUD$39.95 from May 5, 2015 for the PlayStation 4 system and PC, and digital only for the Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft.

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’ favour, 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 artefacts 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.”

Game Description

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood is a standalone prequel to the critically acclaimed first-person action-adventure shooter, Wolfenstein: The New Order. The adventure, which spans eight chapters and two interconnected stories, features the hallmarks of MachineGames – thrilling action, immersive story and intense first-person combat. As war hero B.J. Blazkowicz, arm yourself with new weapons such as the bolt-action rifle and grenade-launching Kampfpistole as you attempt to thwart the advancing Nazi war machine, and take advantage of duel-wielding pipes that can be used for wall climbing – or for vicious take-downs of never-before-seen Nazi adversaries.

Avengers: Age of Ultron

Trailer 3 Screencaps

Love the new look of ‘Stark Tower.’ Now clearly ‘Avengers Tower.’

Ultron, all regal-like.

That split second I thought Wolverine was in this trailer!

Chinese fire drill! Everybody jump out!

Looks like Natasha might be getting the Hawkeye treatment this go-round.

Things are looking down for Captain America.

Cap catches Ultron with his shield.

"Stand and fight."

Black Widow, unbothered.

Looks like this will be an impressive scene with something important being guarded(?) in the center.

And finally, as I suspected, our first look at The Vision.

"Zombies and monsters, isolation and terror—Resident Evil’s certainly got them, but they’re hardly the series’ strengths. With the exception of the very first game,Resident Evil is more often unnerving and stressful than outright scary. Interlocking, densely detailed spaces are the skeletons that prop up Resident Evil’s best bodies, and memorable character pairings are the heart. From strangers trying to survive in a siege-ravaged police station to a special agent protecting his ward in a madman’s Spanish villa, this is the Resident Evil secret sauce. Resident Evil: Revelations 2 has half of the formula in place for its first episode, but it’s missing the foundation provided by the other.”
