Bethesda has announced that it will be releasing a standalone prequel to Wolfenstein: The New Order called Wolfenstein: The Old Blood.
The full plot synopsis for The Old Blood reads as follows:
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. Part one of Wolfenstein: The Old Blood – Rudi Jäger and the Den of Wolves – pits BJ Blazkowicz against a maniacal prison warden as he breaks into Castle Wolfenstein in an attempt to steal the coordinates to General Deathshead’s compound. In part two – The Dark Secrets of Helga Von Schabbs – our hero’s search for the coordinates leads him to the city of Wulfburg where an obsessed Nazi archaeologist is exhuming mysterious artifacts that threaten to unleash a dark and ancient power.
The Old Blood will be released for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on May 5th, but Bethesda didn’t mention a PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 version.
