Wolfenstein: Young Blood will be more like Dishonored ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!
An interview with the executive producer of MachineGames Jerk Gustafsson was published in the latest PlayStation Official Magazine (June 2019). We will tell you about the most interesting details from this interview.
First of all, the game will differ from the previous ones in the series not only by the main characters but also by the gameplay. The player will have the opportunity for more significant variability of actions and third-party activities. Since now the developers from Arkane Studios (the authors of Dishonored and Prey) have made serious efforts into the creation and development of the game, the level design will have much in common with past projects of the studio.
According to Gustafsson, battles and missions in the new part can be held differently. In general, the original Wolfenstein differs from the previous ones in a more open structure. Сompared with the earlier parts, the game will require more time, but at the same time will offer less plot content.
“The open-ended structure and co-op aspect has made it a little more difficult when it comes to the narrative,” he said. “We do think we have a strong story, but it’s quite different from what we have done before; it’s a little bit lighter, not only in tone but also when it comes to the amount of content, and I think that’s the big change when it comes to previous titles: the campaign is a bit shorter but the amount of gameplay time is greater.
Players will be able to stay in the game for a long time. We’ll add additional side-missions and new challenges once the campaign is completed. There are a lot more activities and side-missions that you can do in Wolfenstein: Youngblood than in previous Wolfenstein games.”
Reddit AMA MachineGames has confirmed that the next Wolfenstein: Youngblood won’t be Epic Games Store exclusive. The game, as RAGE 2, will appear in the Bethesda store and on Steam.
A little earlier, Bethesda published FAQ, from which it became known about the microtransactions in a cooperative shooter, but without loot boxes. According to the publisher, players can buy cosmetic items for real currency, but also they may use in-game currency, which can be earned through the gameplay.
Also, Youngblood the standard edition will be released only in digital stores in Europe, Australia and New Zealand, while it will have a physical copy in the USA. The extended edition owners will receive a pass that allows them to invite a friend to the session, who doesn’t have a copy of the game. Wolfenstein: Youngblood will be released on PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC on July 26.
