About Wolfenstein: The Old Blood

About this game

Wolfenstein®: The Old Blood is a standalone prequel to the critically acclaimed first-person action-adventure shooter, Wolfenstein®: The New Order. The adventure, which spans eight chapters and two interconnected stories, features the hallmarks of MachineGames – thrilling action, immersive story and intense first-person combat. As war hero B.J. Blazkowicz, arm yourself with new weapons such as the bolt-action rifle and grenade-launching Kampfpistole as you attempt to thwart the advancing Nazi war machine, and take advantage of duel-wielding pipes that can be used for wall climbing – or for vicious take-downs of never-before-seen Nazi adversaries.

Story

The year is 1946 and the Nazis are on the brink of winning World War II. In an effort to turn the tide in the allies’ favor, B.J. Blazkowicz must embark on an epic, two-part mission deep within Bavaria….

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.

Key Features:

  • The Action!
    Experience MachineGames’ intense first-person combat as you brandish all-new Nazi-inspired weapons such as the bolt-action rifle, 1946 shotgun, and the grenade-launching Kampfpistole. Unlock your potential with a new set of perks for hi-octane action and vicious stealth take-downs.

  • The Adventure!
    Explore breathtaking set pieces featuring rural Germanic towns, sprawling valleys tangled with cable cars and bridges, ghostly catacombs, as well as a return to the iconic Castle Wolfenstein. Use dual-wielding metal pipes to navigate the world with brand-new wall-climbing abilities.

  • The Terror!
    Go up against a new cast of vicious villains and enemies, including legions of hulking new Super Soldiers, elite shock troops, drones and the darkest and most terrifying Nazi creations yet.

Wolfenstein: old blood definitely racks up the nazi killing fun as expected from a Wolfenstein game. In terms of gameplay, old blood as with the others, manages to combine easy to easy to learn game mechanics with an exciting combat experience that benefits different types of players, may it be ones that go full loud and proud during levels or the ones that prefer to explore the more stealthy side that Wolfenstein has to offer. The weapons feel smooth and heavy, creating a greatly satisfying feel when being used in varying situations. In terms of story, old blood offers an ok story with over the top details that serve to expand upon its own style of humor. Preferably there are other Wolfenstein titles that bring more interesting aspects in storytelling than old blood but it is not to say that old blood's story is simply uninteresting. Overall, it's great old nazi killing fun with a few new details and story themes from here and there, but ultimately you'll find yourself coming back to get a feel of that oh so satisfying gameplay aspect.

Really good shooter, since it's a prequel you don't even need to know other games in the series. Not very long, but at least it doesn't "overstay its welcome" ;)
