E3 2018: Bethesda, ‘Wolfenstein’ & E3 2018 Equals Nazis!

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.

Not the wolf!

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.

Time for Nazi killing.

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.

About Ruben Lee Shaw

Movies have been a part of Ruben's life for as long as he can remember. His first film experience was E.T. when he was 5 in a dark grotty cinema in Amsterdam (at least that is how he remembers it). He grew up in South Africa and studied Film and Television production in the UK, which is where he now resides with his stunning wife, 2 interesting teenagers, a fat cat, a crazy dog, and sometimes a dark passenger, (his very imaginative imagination). He has worked on both features and short films and has experience as a journalist/reviewer for films, tv, and games. In 2016 he created his own super Geeky brand called The Ruby Tuesday.  Ruben has a love for horror and things that go bump in the night, although he himself will admit to being a scaredy-cat. Ruben's first teen-fantasy-horror novel is to be released in 2018. Some of his favorite creatives and their creations are Stephen King (It and on writing), Dean Koontz, (Odd Thomas series) Ridley Scott (Alien), C. S. Lewis (Narnia and Screwtape letters) John Carpenter (The Thing and Big Trouble in Little China), James Herbert (Rats) and Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labrythn, Hellboy and The Book of Life). Ruben continues to push the boundaries of his imagination and intends to release three novels and short films in the coming years.
