We get to play Bethesda's upcoming action FPS sooner!
PC gamers eagerly awaiting their trip to Nazi-controlled Paris in the latest action-packed instalment in the Wolfenstein franchise will be glad to hear that it's happening sooner than expected.
That's right, freedom fighters, Bethesda has announced that PC players will get to play Wolfenstein: Youngblood a day earlier than other platforms. The publisher confirmed the news on Twitter after players were somewhat confused why a recent post stated the game would launch on "PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch" on July 26th, but nothing about the PC release.
Confirmed as a spin-off title, Youngblood takes place 19 years after the events of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, in which former protagonist BJ 'Terror-Billy' Blazkowicz has disappeared during a mission within Nazi-occupied Paris. After years of training from their battle-hardened father, BJ’s twin daughters - Jess and Soph Blazkowicz - are forced into action, sporting futuristic suits, heavy weaponry and the same die hard attitudes towards defeating the tyrannical Nazi army.
