Wolfenstein: Youngblood trailer reveals July release date

Bethesda’s co-op spin-off for Wolfenstein is coming out this summer and there’s a new trailer to prove it.

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything new on Wolfenstein: Youngblood, after it was announced at last year’s E3, but now we have the best news possible: it’s out (relatively) soon.

As the trailer below shows the game will be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC on 26 July this year.

The game is set in the 1980s of the franchise’s alternative history timeline, which is further along than any entry so far.

It doesn’t star series mainstay B.J. Blazkowicz though, but his two daughters who are investigating his mysterious disappearance – which leads them to Nazi-occupied Paris.

The game is being developed by MachineGames, who did the last two games, and Arkane Studios Lyon, who worked on the Dishonored series.

Although it’s designed to be a co-op game it can still be played alone, with a computer-controlled ally taking over from a real human.

The Deluxe Edition also has a genuinely useful extra feature: a pass to let any friend play with you even if they don’t own the game.

VR spin-off Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot was also announced last year, and is set around the same time period, but it doesn’t have a release date yet.

There’s never been any word on a direct sequel to Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, but hopefully a third game is inevitable at some point.
