MarkOne_v2_scrubbed_wLegalComing soon to a weapon wheel near you!

If you played through Wolfenstein: The New Order, you know that the game’s replayability is strengthened by the gameplay-based, goal-oriented perk system. The standalone Wolfenstein: The Old Blood (out on May 5 digitally, and physically in EU on May 15) shares this in common with last year’s release.

This week on our official Wolfenstein Facebook page, we’ll be previewing some of these perks, which also unlock achievements on Xbox One/Steam and trophies on PlayStation 4.

For a preview of how this system will work in The Old Blood, we’ll be sharing details on some of our favorites this week on the official Wolfenstein Facebook page. Here’s a sneak peek at today’s unveil of the “Can Carry Machine Guns” Perk:

“Can Carry Heavy Machine Gun” Perk

Take Action with The Evil Within’s Newest DLC

But remember: every action has consequences!

Find out Juli Kidman’s fate in The Evil Within: The Consequence — available today across all the main game’s platforms for $9.99.

If you’ve played The Evil Within’s first DLC, you know Kidman is precariously stuck between completing her assignment from the Mystery Man of Mobius or staying loyal to Sebastian and Joseph. The Consequence picks up right where The Assignment left off and provides a balance of stealth-action and gunplay. That’s right – this time Juli’s packing heat.

Haven’t played The Assignment yet? Double dip on your Kidman quests by purchasing The Evil Within’s Season Pass for $19.99. The pass will give you access to both released DLCs, as well as the upcoming download, The Executioner.

Prepare yourself for these concluding chapters with our release day gameplay trailer embedded above. To keep up on the latest community news for The Evil Within, be sure to keep tabs on the game’s official Instagram, Tumblr, Facebook, and Twitter accounts.
