Wolfenstein: Youngblood is the latest entry in the Wolfenstein series, and serves as mini sequel to Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. It can also act as a prequel to Wolfenstein 3, though there’s no word right now as to when Wolfenstein 3 will be released. While we wait, questions of whether or not you can play as B. J. Blazkowicz have sprung up. To help answer these questions, we’ve put together a quick guide on whether or not you can play as B. J. Blazkowicz in Wolfenstein: Youngblood.
Can you play as B. J. Blazkowicz in Wolfenstein: Youngblood?
The quick answer to the question of whether you can play as B. J. Blazkowicz in Wolfenstein: Youngblood is no, you can’t. While B. J. Blazkowicz isn’t a playable character in Wolfenstein: Youngblood, he is featured in several story cutscenes. The main focus of Wolfenstein: Youngblood is that B. J. Blazkowicz has gone missing and it’s up to his family to track down his whereabouts.
Specifically, Wolfenstein: Youngblood lets you play as Blazkowicz’s twin daughters, Sophia and Jessica. Even though you’re unable to play as Blazkowicz himself, it’s nice that the game keeps everything within the same family. In the future, new modes may be added to Wolfenstein: Youngblood that feature B. J. Blazkowicz in some way, but until then, you’re restricted to Sophia and Jessica as playable characters.
Another thing to keep in mind is that Wolfenstein: Youngblood isn’t Wolfenstein 3. It’s possible that once Wolfenstein 3 drops, you’ll be able to play as B. J. Blazkowicz once more.
