A wealth of games are currently scheduled to release during the second half of 2019, including Wolfenstein: Youngblood. Following an exciting new trailer for the game at E3 2019, news on Wolfenstein: Youngblood has gone somewhat quiet. While many assume the game will drop closer to the end of the year, the truth is the game is actually scheduled to release in a few days. Confused? Read on to find out the exact day that Wolfenstein: Youngblood is scheduled to release!
When does Wolfenstein: Youngblood release?
Wolfenstein: Youngblood is currently scheduled to release on July 26, 2019 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. For PC users, you’ll have access to the game a full day early on July 25 according to Bethesda. Keeping the release date in mind, you’ll be able to pick up and play Wolfenstein: Youngblood on Thursday for PC and Friday on platforms like Nintendo Switch alongside games like Fire Emblem: Three Houses.
For many, Wolfenstein: Youngblood’s release date comes as something of a surprise as Bethesda has been light on promoting the game. Wondering where it stands in the series? Wolfenstein: Youngblood is a standalone sequel to Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus that takes around “25 to 30 hours to complete” according to MachineGames executive producer Jerk Gustafsson.
In the synopsis, the game is described as taking place 19 years after Wolfenstein II after the Second American Revolution. Rather than focus on B. J. Blazkowicz it’ll instead center around his twin daughters, Jessica and Sophia. In a nutshell, think of Wolfenstein: Youngblood as a prequel to Wolfenstein 3. Core gameplay will include the standard single-player campaign, as well as two-player co-op.
