"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’ favor, 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."

This Is The Best Easter Egg From Wolfenstein: The New Order

Now this is completely standalone, so you won't need a copy of The New Order in order to play it. The game will span eight chapters and feature two interconnected stories, all of which will offer myriad brutal ways to kill Nazis. Pipes? Mechs? New weapons? Do it all.

Wolfenstein: The New Order was one of the best games of 2014, so we can't wait to dive into this later today. Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, is available today on PSN, Xbox Live, and Steam for $19.99- expect a full review as soon as possible!
