Another installment in the popular game series that started the FPS genre, and at the same time the fourth installment in the Wolfenstein series developed by Swedish MachineGames studio. Youngblood is a dynamic FPS that not only continues the formula from its predecessors but also introduces the cooperative experience.
In Wolfenstein: Youngblood the action takes place a few decades after the events shown in The New Colossus. The legendary B. J. Blazkowicz vanished without any trace, however, his daughters picked up the baton. Players assume the roles of Jessica and Sophie, who land in Nazi-occupied Paris in the 1980s, and their main objective is to aid the local multiplayer in fighting the occupier.
Similarly to the previous installments developed by MachineGames, Youngblood presents extremely dynamic action players can observe from the first-person perspective. The developers give at our disposal a wide selection of deadly weapons we have to use to fight through the waves of regular Nazis as well as super-soldiers and killer robots. What makes this game special is the focus on the cooperative mode – the game truly spreads its wings when players can play with their friends.
Wolfenstein: Youngblood was developed using the same technology as Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, thus all the audiovisual changes affected the style of the game that is now inspired by 1980s. Youngblood does not lack synthesizers and bright colors that obviously are designed to fit the world ruled by the Nazis.
