The Old Blood coming on May 5 to PC, Xbox One and PS4.
We didn't see this one coming, but there's a new "standalone prequel" to Wolfenstein: The New Order in the works and it's coming to PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on May 5. Wolfenstein: The Old Blood will cost $19.99. Here's the description that landed with the trailer that announced the game:
Wolfenstein: The Old Blood takes our hero BJ Blazkowicz back to the year 1946 in an adventure that spans eight chapters and two interconnected stories (released together) that will lead into the events you know and love from The New Order.
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.
