A standalone prequel to 2014’s Wolfenstein: The New Order, Wolfenstein: The Old Blood launches digitally next week on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC for $19.99/£14.99/€19.99/AUD$39.95. Following the digital release on May 5, a physical version will be coming to Europe on May 15.
In a primer for The Old Blood, Bethesda reveals that, because it’s standalone, there are no save files carrying over to or from The New Order.
They add, “If you’ve played The New Order already, it’ll be exciting to see how the early events of the game were set into motion. If you haven’t played either, the $20 price tag gives you a great introduction into MachineGames’ new take on the Wolfenstein universe.”
Sitting close to a 40GB download on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, Bethesda recommends pre-loading the game, which begins on the following dates:
- PS4 – Sunday, May 3
- Xbox One – April 23
- PC – Friday, May 1
And here’s when the game unlocks:
- North America – May 5 at 12am ET
- Europe – May 5 at 12am local time
- Worldwide – 12am ET
