Pipe Wolfenstein

There’s going to be a lot of gushing blood in Old BloodWolfenstein: The Old Blood, that is.

According to MachineGames Executive Producer Jerk Gustafsson, who spoke to Bethesda Blog, Old Blood will have players use a hollow metal pipe to kill enemies a lot. If that sounds brutal and gory, that is because it is. Gustafsson mentioned that takedowns will be cringe-worthy, but the pipe isn’t just a weapon. 

The idea was to have something new – something different than the knife.

It’s equally a progression tool as it is a weapon.

He explained that the pipe will allow B. J. Blazkowicz to break apart walls, reach high places, and even use it for climbing. Gustafsson mentioned that the pipe can be taken apart, allowing players to dual-wield it. 

What do you think of the idea of beating enemies to a pulp with a metal pipe? Are you excited for Wolfenstein: The Old Blood to release on May 5?
