Yes, that’s a great concept

The next release in the Wolfenstein family is Wolfenstein: Youngblood, a co-op experience set in the 1980s and starring B.J. Blazkowicz’s twin daughters.

“To survive you have to embrace the suffering,” Blazkowicz tells his daughters in the voice over, and you see the two young women looking over a red world filled with goose-stepping Nazis. The game is coming in 2019, and sadly those are all the details that were announced for the game during Bethesda’s press conference.

Here is the official description from the trailer on YouTube:

Wolfenstein: Youngblood is a brand-new co-op game unveiled at the Bethesda BE3 Showcase 2018. The game takes place in 1980, 19 years after BJ Blazkowicz ignited the second American Revolution in Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.

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

This is an amazing concept for a game, and the quality of Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, the previous game in the series, gives us even more reason to be optimistic.

“The New Colossus often felt like one long invitation to have a good time, regardless of whether I was playing the game the way the developers seemingly intended,” I wrote in our original review. “Though strange in some ways, this sort of open-ended design was surely part of the plan. It’s a game that frequently felt like a toy, which is an odd but not horrible feeling in an experience this uncompromisingly violent.”

We look forward to sharing more news about Wolfenstein: Youngblood before its release in 2019.
