Wolfenstein: The Old Blood launched today on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC. The physical edition will be available on May 15th 2015 in Europe. Wolfenstein was always a big hit on the PC back in my day although I can say that I was never that passionate about it back in the early 90's. In fact, I have no idea why? The Wolfenstein franchise as a whole is a remarkable feat that started with Castle Wolfenstein back in 1981 released on the Apple II, MS-DOS, Commodore 64 and Atari. Fast forward to 2015 and we are ten games in to the series with Wolfenstein: The Old Blood being the latest shooter to the series.
Wolfenstein: The Old Blood is the prequel to The New Order and was originally planned to be released as a two part DLC pack. What we actually got was a standalone experience with the two original DLC merged in to one game; Wolfenstein: The Old Blood. So what's deal with the story?
The year is 1946 and the Nazis are on the brink of winning World War II. In an effort to turn the tide in the allies’ favor, B.J. Blazkowicz must embark on an epic, two-part mission deep within Bavaria…
First person shooter, killing Nazi's, infiltrating Castle Wolfenstein? Sounds like the perfect recipe for a gnarly Wolfenstein game to me. So what do you guys think? Are you buying it? Going around to your friends house for a session with Blazkowickz? I'll be waiting for the physical release (yes I'm a dumb collector and prefer the physical copies). In the meantime I'll be watching plenty of Twitch streams of Wolfenstein: The Old Blood to tied me over. Check out the official trailer here.

We're well in to the Playstation 4 and Xbox One and more recently the Nintendo Switch eras of gaming. Graphics had never looked so smooth and gameplay had never flowed so fluently. Let's not forget the triumphant last Generation of gaming with the Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii; all of which I have a lot of time for.
