Wolfenstein: Youngblood Deluxe Edition Includes A Nice Bonus

Let your friends play with you for free.

10 Comments

Bethesda has released a new trailer and release date for Wolfenstein: Youngblood. The studio also revealed details for the game's Deluxe Edition, highlighting one particular feature that might make buying the more expensive edition a no-brainer for a few.

The standard version of Wolfenstein: Youngblood has a retail price of $30 USD, while the Deluxe Edition goes for $40 USD. The Deluxe Edition includes a cyborg-themed skin pack, which is roughly par for the course with a special edition like this, but more notable is the inclusion of what's called the Buddy Pass. That extra $10 might be worth it for the Buddy Pass alone, because it allows you to grant limited access to the game to a friend, making it perfect for co-op play.

No Caption Provided

According to the Youngblood FAQ, you can send a Buddy Pass invite code to as many friends as you want. With the code, someone can play Youngblood with you in co-op for free. You can only play with one friend at a time, though, and you do need to be playing in order for someone else to use your pass.

There are some limitations; anyone playing Youngblood via the pass won't be able to earn in-game Xbox One Achievements or PS4 Trophies, for instance. If they want to get those, they'll have to pay an upgrade fee to purchase the full game. Bethesda has not revealed whether the upgrade fee will be cheaper than just buying the game. Still, this might save you both some money if you know you want to play the game with a friend.

The Cyborg Skin Pack includes a custom character skin as well as titanium alloy skins for all weapons, the hatchet, and the knife. The pack also gives you an armor-boosting pep signal. Youngblood includes a few other cosmetic packs as well. The Legacy Pack--which is a set of BJ Blazkowicz-themed outfits and weapons--is available as a pre-order bonus for both editions of the game. The Youngblood FAQ reveals there will be additional cosmetic items, all of which can be earned via in-game currency or bought with microtransactions. The full list of pre-order and Deluxe Edition bonuses follows below.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood's release date on Xbox One, PS4, PC, and Switch is set for July 26. Bethesda has confirmed the Switch version of the game will be released the same day as the others. The game has you play as Jess and Soph, the twin daughters of Wolfenstein protagonist BJ Blazkowicz. After their father goes missing in Nazi-occupied Paris, Jess and Soph launch a rescue mission in order to find him and bring him home. The game can be played completely solo with an AI-controlled partner or co-op with another person.

A Way Out had a similar feature but didn't charge you extra for it. Still, I suppose the upgrade pass is a good idea if your friend really likes it and want their own copy.

@clockstomper: Does A Way Out require 2 players or can it be played by 1?

@thomaswmak: Very much requires two players. There's no option for a bot to steer the other character.

@zmanbarzel: does the game allow you to team with any random player online? If not, it would suck cuz I don't have anyone to play with.

@Xylymphydyte: Did you not read the article? Preordering has nothing to do with this. ?

@Xylymphydyte: Well you're not wrong... but who said anything about preorder? It's the Deluxe Edition, not a preorder bonus
