Bethesda is at it again! They are kicking Nazi ass in spectacular style, with not one but two new Wolfenstein games. MachineGames and Bethesda Softworks have teamed once again to bring us their first co-op FPS of the franchise called Wolfenstein Youngblood and the VR game Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot. These is a brand new experience from the award-winning studio that developed the critically acclaimed Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, which is, in my opinion, the best in the franchise thus far.
Youngblood is set in 1980, 19 years after BJ Blazkowicz ignited the second American Revolution. The game introduces the next Blazkowicz generation to the fight against the Nazis. You will be playing as one of the badass BJ’s twin daughters, Jess and Soph, as you search for your missing father in Nazi-occupied Paris.
The cheers of the crowd at the E3’s Bethesda showcase seemed to indicate that this was the right direction to go into. Wolfenstein Youngblood will be launching in 2019 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
As of late, Bethesda has been real champions of VR. From Fallout to Doom VFR, they have spared no expense in the fight to further engulf their players into an immersive experience with the worlds they have already built… Well, as far as possible, that is. Which leads me to the second Wolfenstein game Bethesda announced at E3. Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot. The game will endeavour to bring virtual reality to the revolution against the Nazis with as much dismemberment in your face as you can handle.
It’s Paris, 1980. You’re the best hacker in town. Your mission is to aid the French Resistance by taking control of powerful Nazi war machines. You will have to ram, gun down and burn your way through the City of Love, leaving as many dead Nazis in your wake as possible. Get ready for some damn great immersive Nazi killing. Wolfenstein Cyberpilot releases in 2019.
