We finally saw some substantial footage of upcoming first-person shooter, Wolfenstein: Youngblood, at Bethesda’s E3 2019 presentation this year, and it sure looked like some good old fun.
And although E3 may have ended this past week, more news about the game has seemingly been revealed.
In an interview with GamesBeat, Machine Games’ Executive Producer Jerk Gustafsson discussed more about Wolfenstein: Youngblood, and in particular, how the two twin daughters of BJ Blazkowicz – Jess and Soph – fit into the lore, and the game’s length.
With BJ’s wife, Anya, pregnant with twins, the idea of adding the twins and two-player co-op made perfect sense. “We know that Anya was pregnant with twins. It made sense to do something fresh and new in the ’80s when the twins were older,” he said. ”
We also wanted to do a story about growing up and the transition between adolescence and adulthood. Those were the main reasons for going with the two characters.”
The game is also pretty much Machine Games’ “biggest game yet, but it’s a pretty short production time.” According to Gustafsson, gamers are “looking at at least 25 to 30 hours if you play through everything.” Both the “level progression and the non-linear narrative” will make the game longer than their previous titles.
Look forward to more Nazi killing action this July 26 when Wolfenstein: Youngblood launches.
