That’s right, today you can download the prequel for Wolfenstein: The New Order on your PlayStation 4, PC, or Xbox One. Don’t have The New Order? Doesn’t matter. The Old Blood is a standalone digital title that doesn’t require a purchase of last year’s award-winning shooter. But be warned: once you’ve played through The Old Blood, you’re going be ready for more.
If you’ve missed any of our details on the game, be sure to check out these features:

Have questions? We’ve got a FAQ for that.
With last year’s studio-debut title, Wolfenstein: The New Order, Sweden-based MachineGames established how they could move B.J. Blazkowicz into an era of story-driven, first-person shooters while staying true to the series legacy and roots. They also proved they can they can make a pretty good homage to the 1992 id Software original — hiding the game’s first level as an Easter Egg.
Nostalgic fans that enjoyed this trip down memory lane will be happy to know that Nightmare Mode has returned in Wolfenstein: The Old Blood. Speaking with MachineGame’s Managing Director & Executive Producer, Jerk Gustafsson, we’re happy to report that the entire first episode of Wolf 3D can be found by carefully exploring the contents of The Old Blood.
To learn a little more about the process of bringing the cult classic back, Jerk was nice enough to answer some of our Bethesda Blog questions.
How many Nightmare levels are in The Old Blood?
There are nine Nightmare levels in The Old Blood – one for each chapter in the game. One great improvement we’ve done for The Old Blood is that players will be able to replay each Nightmare level. As soon as you wake up from a Nightmare – by dying, by completing the level or by using the new “wake up” option — you will always be able to go back to bed and enter the Nightmare again.
Nice work by the creative folks at ZeniMax Online Studios for pulling together this screenshot within ESO: Tamriel Unlimited!
