Wolfenstein Youngblood

Recommended Posts

 

So I'm really digging the 80s cyberpunk impression that this teaser gives. Really hoping that they do a good job with this one. What are eveyone else's thoughts?

Wolfenstein is a series that I think could benefit from co-op and I am glad to see it finally realised, I need more co-op games...

 

... And friends, that'd help too.

Excited for it being solo and coop and can't wait to play it.

However I have questions regarding the story. Does this mean no Wolf 3? Is BJ not successful? Is BJ an old man and Wolf3 takes place after this? Is this just a dream that doesn't actually happen?

I really hope this is a non-canon spinoff because the idea of BJ's twins having to continue their father's mission is ultra depressing to me.

This somehow looks even worse than the new colossus.

If this is set in the eighties, who's going to be the villain? Hitler will almost certainly be dead, Deathshead was killed in New Order (as I remember), and Engel in New Colossus. My own intuition says that some cosmic plot force has to intervene because the order would've (in real life) most likely collapsed by now.

I don't think I'll be getting this.

I'm in agreement with Mr Freeze, because this continuity is grimdark and depressing as fuck already, and this is hitting the depression nail so hard it breaks. I mean, it's been forty years (since WWII, not New Order) and still nothing's changed despite everyone's best efforts? Fuck it. Might as well nuke it all. Wouldn't make enough difference for me to care.

 

And there's my problem with it: I can't bring myself to care for anyone in the continuity because everyone's apparently doomed to fail. Period. Nazis win and recover from every battle because they control the entire world with ultra-tech, so why bother even trying?

Goddamn, how can this be more depressing to me than God of War 3? How is the actual apocalypse less depressing than this setting?

MachineGames, you're doing something incredibly wrong, because there's no light at the end of this road, period.

I think the Tno storyline should've just ended with the new colossus. Because this looks awful.

Looks interesting but sadly i can't stand cyberpunk (please don't kill me Bladerunner fans :( ) Machine Games really needs to polish this one up if they want to have a good reputation again from before Wolfstein 2 got released.While i like the idea of BJ being dead or old or something and his daughters needing to continue in his footsteps he is the main character and basically mascot of Wolfenstein so i don't believe that they killed him of or made him old instead i think that this will just be a spin off in an alternative universe.

I mean it looks pretty fun but eh. I wasn't too big into the reboots unfortunately and it kills me. I'd love to be excited for a new Wolfenstein game :(

They really did write themselves into a corner with the whole "Nazis take over the world..... and the moon..... and jupiter" because where can you even go from there, the nazis have won, theres absolutely nothing anyone can do about it no matter how many little resistance groups you make.

Also yeah, i hated TNC with a burning passion and this looks like even more cringeworthy horseshit so hard pass.

Alien invasion. That's the only thing that can fix this continuity.

Welp, there goes my theory that Quake Champions Ranger is from the same timeline as TNO/TNC.

Spoiler

Ranger's family photo has the year 1978 printed on it and his lore mentions that he suffers from night terrors from his time in Vietnam, but his combat outfit seems a little too futuristic for that year.... unless it's a timeline in which the Nazis developed super-futuretech weaponry and pew-pew energy laserguns on the Moon...

80s have made a comeback in non game form. Gimmicking both the Nazis with the 80s?

 

I assume the two daughters are Blaskovitch's kids... maybe they'll have to save their brother Commander Keen?

Sorry, but Wolfenstein without BJ is like Doom without Doomguy to me.

 

They better bring something extremely cool features to compensate my frustration.

There's another Wolf game they announced, too, for people with VR stuff.

Somehow, this doesn't interest me very much. Who could possibly lead on the Nazi war machine in the eighties anyways with major figureheads crippled (or damage done) in the fourties and sixties? That and TNC's diverse cast and stupid slogans kinda pissed me off too.

I'm always up for a co-op shooter, so I'll give it a spin (after I finish Doom Eternal, of course). The idea of having two akimbo-shotgun-wielding-badasses running around seems pretty fucking awesome. Haven't played TNC, but it looked fun enough, TNO was pretty tight, but I had some gripes. I've never been a huge Wolfenstein fan, Return was ehhhhhh, and I don't care for the original. I do like how the protagonists are directly related to BJ, that kind of thing is always fun.
