The add-on content for MachineGames and Bethesda's Wolfenstein: reboot, Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, is now available as a digital release (ahead of a retail release) for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

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’ favour, 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 artefacts that threaten to unleash a dark and ancient power.
We've played a smidgeon of the game already, and are currently deeply entrenched in Nazi castles for review, but ahead of our official word and your likely buying it anyway, watch the new launch trailer embedded below.

No SLI and 60fps frame cap sucks balls and the in game AA is s***. Otherwise a great shooter.

If it runs on the unreal engines, they have texture popping. I still have not played the previous one cause of the 60gb download for it, I am/was waiting for the physical version to hit the cheap bin.

Bought the New Order / Old Blood combo this week. Installs are so huge omg. Had to install on the regular HDD, felt so dirty. Might be time for another SSD.

up to chapter 4 and i'm loving it so far. it's just as good as the new order.

it's kind of cool that in every chapter there is a wolf3d level to find a play through.

Do you get the texture fade issue? It's terrible on my PC. Makes it not worth playing.
