The Saga Continues: Wolfenstein Youngblood

Talk about double impact, we are introduced to the twin daughters of B.J. Blazkowicz – Soph and Jess (approximately 18 or 19). When last they were reference they were still in their mother’s stomach, now they are badass members of the Global Resistance kicking Nazi tail in search of their father.

This will be the first installment of the Wolfenstein franchise whereby B.J. won’t be the main protagonist. He went missing in Paris, France in a timeline that is still under Nazi occupation in Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. Wolfenstein: Youngblood is set as the second installment of the revamped Wolfenstein contemporary trilogy. It is the eight overall game in the franchise, but you can definitely feel the difference from the older games and the modern-day games. There is a co-op campaign that can be played with one other friend or you can play it alone along with an AI partner.

While Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus takes place in alternate 1961 American timeline, Youngblood occurs in a similar timeline during 1980. The Wolfenstein games are among my favorite first-person shooters and Youngblood won’t disappoint, expect firearms and melee combat in abundance; along with a strong storyline and solid, believable acting. one interesting departure will be that as a player you can complete missions in a non-linear manner, which gives more freedom of exploration and variety in gameplay that can make repeat play more enjoyable.

There is some new technology to provide a modern feel to the game, over the retro-fantasy aspect; such as the Da-at Yichud power suit. Check great games here.
