How Long Is Wolfenstein: Youngblood?
Though there almost sure to be a third game in the new Wolfenstein series, BJ Blazkowicz is taking a break for the upcoming Wolfenstein: Youngblood and handing the Nazi-killing reins over to his two twin daughters. The upcoming shooter from MachineGames and Arkane Studios is seemingly serving up quite action-heavy experience, but as the game is also less focused on story this time around, a lingering question is just how long players might spend in Wolfenstein: Youngblood.
Executive Producer with Machine Games Jerk Gustafsson has now unveiled this tidbit with GamesBeat, confirming the game currently clocks in at around 25-30 hours long. Gustafsson confirmed such a sizable time-frame would rank among the most lengthy of the rebooted Wolfenstein series, the game’s emphasis on progression and non-linear storytelling presenting no shortage of side missions and activities to explore.
It’s a bit weird, because this is our biggest game yet, but it’s a pretty short production time. Like I said, the story is lighter in content as well as tone. But the level progression and the non-linear narrative gives us the ability to add a lot of activities and a lot of missions to do, so the total game time is actually longer than our previous titles. I think we’re looking at at least 25 to 30 hours if you play through everything.”
The release is quickly approaching for Wolfenstein: Youngblood and as such, a few last bits of release information have been coming out as of late. Bethesda confirmed the game’s PC release on Steam earlier this year and more recently clarified the game’s seeming microtranactions were not entirely what they seemed.
Wolfenstein: Youngblood releases for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on July 26th. It’s also set to be a launch title for Google Stadia when the streaming platform goes live in November.
