Wolfenstein: Youngblood announced, is co-op with BJ’s daughters

The splendid new line of Wolfenstein first-person shooters from MachineGames will continue next year with Wolfenstein: Youngblood, a cooperative game starring BJ Blazkowicz’s twin daughters. It’s set in 1980, see, 19 years after Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. Would you be surprised to hear that the twins are also very keen on shooting Nazis? Meet ’em in the game’s announcement trailer.

“Wolfenstein: Youngblood introduces the next Blazkowicz generation to the fight against the Nazis,” Bethesda explain. “Play as one of BJ’s twin daughters, Jess and Soph, as you search for your missing father in Nazi-occupied Paris.”

That’s all they have to say and show right now. I imagine they’ll have more to say during E3, and certainly during QuakeCon in August.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood is slated to launch some time in 2019.

    Yes, please. Thank you.

  2. Mouse_of_Dunwall says:

    Hell yes! I was not expecting a new Wolfenstein so soon.

  3. Megabat says:

    thank you, video games

  4. E_FD says:

    It’s sorta mindblowing to realize that nearly thirty years after its launch, there will be a big, hyped-up AAA game about the adventures of Commander Keen’s mom.

    Thank you God even if I’m not religious

    Who would the Nazis even be fighting in 1980?
    You think they would’ve gone through some kind of consolidation period by then.

      The Blazkowicz family, obviously.

      More seriously, I haven’t played either of the NuWolfensteins, but it doesn’t seem too far-fetched that the US threw off its shackles some time in the last 20 years, but other nations remain occupied.

  7. Kollega says:

    The new Wolfenstein games are good… but all I can think of in relation to this one, because of its title, is “Will Rob Liefeld be suddenly involved in any capacity?”

    IDK, considering BJ’s physical build and the timeframe of Wolfenstein 3D’s heyday, that may not be as completely out-there as it seems.

    • Xerophyte says:

      While those are some large Liefeldian guns with gribbly bits on them, the two women appear to have working spines and feet. I guess maybe they encounter their time traveling brother from an alternative future universe at some point and he introduces them to pouch couture, but I’d say signs point to no.

    • Turkey says:

      I just started following Liefeld on Instagram, it looks like he’s becoming self-aware or something. He’s been posting pictures of a new character called “The Pouch” that’s just a guy made entirely of pouches. It’s really weird.

      • Kollega says:

        I think Liefeld has been self-aware for a while now. I saw one interview of him, about a new Youngblood book getting launched in 2016 or so, and Liefeld quoted a dialogue with a colleague that went “That art is really good! Did you draw it?” “No, that’s why it’s so good!”

  8. Kefren says:

    They can’t resist those rootin tootin huntin’ scenes. It seems weird to have a game about fighting dangerous human and robotic opponents, but the only gun being aimed here is at a passive animal.

  9. Carcer says:

    I feel the jokey titling must be acknowledged – Wolf:TNO was followed by expandalone prequel “The Old Blood”, and now Wolf:TNC is followed by “Youngblood”…

  10. Halk says:

    Woman(s) as protagonist again? Okay, no buy then, only pirate download.

  11. Faxmachinen says:

    Why would they name it after a Norwegian gang though?
