Wolfenstein: The Old Blood Gets Its First Gameplay Footage

Earlier today, Bethesda Softworks arranged a live stream directly from PAX East to show the first gameplay footage of Wolfenstein: The Old Blood.

The stream is now over but you can still catch the recorded footage above. The entire gameplay session, which spans to around thirty minutes, includes narration by the developers, who guide you through by highlighting the new additions and improvement.

Wolfenstein The Old Blood is a standalone title that will be released digitally on the Xbox One, while the PC and PlayStation 4 will get a digital as well as retail version.

The prequel to the first title will be skipping the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms. The developer didn’t give a reason as to why.

Set in the 1946, players will fill the shoes of B.J. Blazkowicz and tasked to play through two different parts of the story deep within Bavaria.

The first one is called Rudi Jäger and the Den of Wolves, and is related to finding the coordinates to the location of the compound of General Deathshead. It takes place at the Wolfenstein Castle and pits players against a “maniacal prison warden.”

The second one is called The Dark Secrets of Helga Von Schabbs. Players will arrive at the city of Wulfburg where they must face off against an obsessed Nazi archaeologist.

Strange things are happening when the sun goes down, and it probably has something to do with this archaeologist exhuming mysterious artifacts to unleash a dark and ancient power.

Wolfenstein The Old Blood is going to cost £14.99/€19.99/AUS$39.95 when it releases on May 5 this year.
