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.

I am not done with the game, but so far I am loving it. It has a really good story and the gunplay just clicks. I would one hundred percent recommend this game, and this site.

BJ Blast to the past

A great game that follows the footsteps of its predecessor, although with a smaller shoe size... It's a great and enyojable prequel but on a smaller scale. You won't find many of the great features that made of The New Order a must have, but as a some sort of standalone prequel-dlc the game works really well. Think of it this way: Old Blood is some sort of extra story and as such, eclipsing the main act (The New Order) may be an error. The Old Blood is on par with The New Order on every thechnical aspect. Just not as good on everything else: the characters are not as charismatic, the story is not as good... but not bad by any means . Everything is great, just not so great as in his big brother.

Honestly I love every single Wolfenstein game. Like an over the top 80's action movie put into game form. Just good old fun. Highly recommend.

If you've played Wolfenstein: The New Order, you've already seen everything done better!

While Wolfenstein: The Old Blood (WTOB) isn't a bad game, it's nothing special either. It feels like a scaled back, budgeted version of Wolfenstein: The New Order (WTNO) in a few ways. There's very little new or interesting both in terms of gameplay or story and what there is feels very much like "been there, done that" (which you have if you've already played WTNO). There's also the odd visual jank in places, forced stealth sections that feel out of place and gunplay not feeling great. WTOB is probably worth picking up when it's on sale, as long as you don't expect to be blown away with anything new or groundbreaking.
