Wolfenstein: Youngblood Launches July 26th
Wolfenstein: Youngblood will have more content than Wolfenstein: The New Order and its sequel Wolfenstein: The New Colossus despite having a shorter campaign, according to a Machine Games developer.
“Youngblood is different than our previous titles in many ways,” said executive producer Jerk Gustafsson in a recent Reddit AMA. “Player progression is level-based and the game structure is non-linear, which means the experience is player directed in a way that we’ve never done before where players will be able to perform missions in any order they please. And while the storyline/campaign may be a bit lighter than New Order/New Colossus, the total gameplay time of Youngblood will exceed those titles.”
Gustafsson also compared Wolfenstein: Youngblood’s levels to the levels found in the Dishonored series in an interview with Official PlayStation Magazine (thanks, GamingBolt).
“I think players will see a lot of similarities to level design in the Dishonored games,” Gustafsson said, “so in that sense it can be a little bit different as an experience but it can be for the benefit of the game, especially when it comes to finding different ways of approaching a combat scenario or a mission in general.”
Gustafsson added that Machine Games will bring more “side-missions and new challenges once the campaign is completed.”
“There’s a lot more activities and side-missions that you can do in Wolfenstein: Youngblood than in previous Wolfenstein games,” he said.
