Wolfenstein: Youngblood Will Resemble Dishonored’s Level Design!?

It’s an interesting idea that Wolfenstein: Youngblood, which is meant to be considered as a Wolfenstein-spinoff, will follow a similar approach that Arkane Studios’ game (or should we say franchise?) uses…

Jerk Gustafsson, the executive producer of Wolfenstein: Youngblood, was interviewed by the Official PlayStation Magazine. WCCFTech has taken a few quotes of it. „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,” Gustafsson said.

He thinks the fact that MachineGames is making a cooperative game for the first time (as BJ Blazkowicz’ daughters are the protagonists!), and that Wolfenstein: Youngblood has an open-ended structure, has affected the game: „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,” Gustafsson added.

So, Wolfenstein: Youngblood isn’t going to be that long if we just get through the campaign. That is not a good omen, as Wolfenstein II wasn’t as good as the first game (or its standalone expansion), so we’re taking the Parisian adventure with the women with a grain of salt. Still, it’s hard to see how successful the game could be when it launches on July 26 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
