Wolfenstein: Youngblood Developer Says Level Design Similar to Dishonored

Wolfenstein Youngblood Underground Collectibles

The latest title in the Wolfenstein series Wolfenstein: Youngblood is setting up to be quite different from the previous titles in the series. In addition to the game being set several years after The New Colossus, and featuring new protagonists, it also promises different brand of gameplay that will be open-ended and would allow players far more freedom in terms of exploration and side quests.

Executive Producer of Youngblood Jerk Gustafsson was talking with PlayStation Official Magazine in the upcoming June 2019 issue. During the interview, Gustafsson talked about the similarities that the game will have with Dishonored. Primarily how players choose to navigate missions and combat scenarios.

I think players will see a lot of similarities to level design in the Dishonored games, so in that sense it can be a little bit different as an experience but it can be for the benefit of the game, especially when it comes to finding different ways of approaching a combat scenario or a mission in general.

Gustaffson also talked about how this open-ended structure of the game affected the game’s overall setup in combination with the co-op feature. Thought the main campaign of the game will be shorter than previous Wolfenstein titles, it will be more replayable with several side activities and missions.

The open-ended structure and co-op aspect has made it a little more difficult when it comes to the narrative. We do think we have a strong story, but it’s quite different from what we have done before; it’s a little bit lighter, not only in tone but also when it comes to the amount of content, and I think that’s the big change when it comes to previous titles: the campaign is a bit shorter but the amount of gameplay time is greater.

Players will be able to stay in the game for a long time. We’ll add additional side-missions and new challenges once the campaign is completed. There are a lot more activities and side-missions that you can do in Wolfenstein: Youngblood than in previous Wolfenstein games.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood is set to release on 26 July 2019 for the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4. Here are the game features:

  • Murder, They Wrote: Team up with a friend or play alone with an AI companion in the first modern co-op Wolfenstein adventure. Perform new tag team maneuvers, crank up the voltage with the devastatingly powerful new co-op weapon, the Tesla Gun, and show off your flair with skins and emotes.
  • Escape from Paris: Wolfenstein: Youngblood features the most open-ended Wolfenstein experience to date. From a new base of operations located deep in the heart of the Paris catacombs, plan how and when to attack and dismantle the Nazi regime.
  • Sweatin’ to the 80s: The wonder years, these are not. Featuring harrowing takes on iconic Parisian landmarks to graffiti-tagged streets, leather-clad Nazis, and an all-new soundtrack inspired by the synth heavy tones of classic 80s action films.
  • Lock and Load: Wield the latest advancements in power armor tech, weaponry, and armor to stamp out Nazi scum. Level up, explore, and complete missions to unlock new abilities, weapon attachments, gadgets, cosmetics, and more to complement your playstyle.
