March 4, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

A standalone prequel to last year’s Wolfenstein: The New Order, Bethesda and MachineGames have announced that Wolfenstein: The Old Blood is coming digitally to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on May 5 for $19.99/£14.99/€19.99.

Taking place in 1946 in an adventure that spans eight chapters and two interconnected stories (released together), The Old Blood leads into the events of The New Order.

Here’s the official description for The Old Blood:

Part one of Wolfenstein: The Old Blood – Rudi Jäger and the Den of Wolves — pits BJ Blazkowicz against a maniacal prison warden as he breaks into Castle Wolfenstein in an attempt to steal the coordinates to General Deathshead’s compound. In part two – The Dark Secrets of Helga Von Schabbs – our hero’s search for the coordinates leads him to the city of Wulfburg where an obsessed Nazi archaeologist is exhuming mysterious artifacts that threaten to unleash a dark and ancient power.

For another look at The Old Blood, Bethesda is holding a livestream on Twitch at 7;30am PT/10:30am ET on both Friday, March 6 and Saturday, March 7.
