You really do not have to play alone Wolfenstein: Youngblood . The new first-person shooter, released on today's computer and consoles tomorrow, is designed from top to armored heel to be a collaborative experience. This is a different type of Wolfenstein game full of the same thick, meat-nose-killing action that you can recognize from the previous Wolfenstein The new colossus but built for two. Keep this in mind and you will probably like it a lot. We shot some video clips of the game to demonstrate.
In the footage of this post, you will see Kotaku video producer Tim Rogers and I play through Youngblood mission introducing you to the prerequisite of the game: You and your co- are Jessica and Sofia Blaskovich, the twin daughters of the previous chief character BJ "Terror Billy" Blatkovic and his wife Anja. After BJ disappeared into Nazi occupation of the eighties, Paris, Jess and Sof deciding to steal some strong armor and find him while killing as many Nazis as possible, starting with a slug called Nachtfelter. Nachtfelter "means? Or how good are Jess and Sof in killing the Nazis? Watch the video where we show some passable German and send a bunch of Nazis straight.
We'll have more coverage, but here are some other thoughts about the game after about six hours of play:
- Think twice about releasing solo Youngblood . Everything about his design is aimed at cooperative play, and while you can handle a sister controlled by AI, you will not be able to make many strategies and it will take longer to clear your enemies. , no sofa co-op or LAN support. You need to unify the internet. (You do not need an internet connection if you play a solo.)
- You can not stop the game, even in single players. Levels, however, are sometimes broken with doors that need to be opened by the two sisters together, and the rooms immediately after them are usually safe places for a quick rest.
- Six hours after the campaign, I can tell you that you should not expect much history in the early hours of Youngblood . Fans of The new order / The new colossus can find this disappointing.
- The game looks pretty short and sweet, aimed at replaying and viewing maps and missions with new twists and turns. (And many collectible items.) It's a little but tight.
- The murder of the Nazis remains a joy, and you make it a heap in this video game.
