New Wolfenstein Youngblood update brings new mission and more

Bethesda has updated Wolfenstein Youngblood once again, this time with another new mission, a new mission type, and fresh abilities and enemies.

Younger blood

As Wolf games go, Wolfenstein Youngblood was not quite the blockbusters FPS that you’d expect from the series. Nonetheless, it was a solid game in its own right. It’s also a game that kind of fills in the gap between part 2 and the surely forthcoming part 3.

Youngblood forwards time from the 60s era of the original game to the 80s. Though, as you might’ve figured, it’s hardly the 80s that you know and love. The Wolf universe might have a liberated US, but that’s about it, as enemy forces still run roughshod over the whole of Europe, and really the rest of the world.

Of course, that’s where Youngblood sends players, but not as an older version of series hero BJ, but instead as his twin daughters. Made with a focus on co-op play, Youngblood is also perfectly playable as a single player affair, and a pretty fun time aside from some slight issues.

Bethesda has been dutifully updating the game post-launch too, with a series of additions. The latest patch adds in a bunch of fresh elements, including new bad guys to combat, new powers to use, and more.

Have a peek at what’s new:

  • New Mission: Treasure Hunt – Studying the artifacts from Lab X has revealed the location of a second Da’at Yichud chamber. The Nazis who have already staked their claim in the chamber have been unable to unlock its secrets, maybe a couple Nazi hunting badasses can unlock the mysteries inside? This is an endgame mission with a suggested player level of 40, so players can expect a challenge!
  • New Mission Type: Treasure Maps – Once you tackle the Treasure Hunt mission, players will unlock the ability to see Da’at Yichud Artifacts within the game world. Locating a number of maps scattered about will unveil the location of an artifact, granting players a number of rewards.
  • New Abilities – Whether you take the new Silent Killer ability to stealthily slip back into cover after an assassination or the Resilience ability to be able to shirk off explosive damage, 1.0.7 brings players several new abilities to work into their playstyle.
  • New Enemy Types – Take on the new teleporting Wurmlochsoldat, turret-mounted Turmhund, and the Electrodrohne Tesla drone while you search for the newly revealed Da’at Yichud chamber.

Patch 1.0.7 is live now for all versions of Wolfenstein Youngblood. You can check out the full notes on it here.
