During Bethesda's E3 2019 presentation we got a good look at the upcoming first-person shooter Wolfenstein: Youngblood. Though this year's E3 may have ended, news about the convention's biggest games continues to trickle out. One such piece of information is the length of the Wolfenstein spin-off.
Machine Games' executive producer Jerk Gustafsson sat down with GamesBeat to talk about Wolfenstein: Youngblood and discussed the new characters--BJ Blazkowicz's twin daughters, Jess and Soph--the game's length, and more.
GamesBeat asked Gustafsson just how long Wolfenstein: Youngblood is, to which Gustafsson said the game is the studio's "biggest game yet, but it's a pretty short production time." Gustafsson said, "I think we're looking at at least 25 to 30 hours if you play through everything." He added that the "level progression and the non-linear narrative" makes the game longer than their previous titles. Game length statistic site How Long To Beat reports that Wolfenstein: The New Order and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus both have main storylines that take approximately 11 hours to finish.
GamesBeat also asked how Machine Games settled on two-player co-op. Gustafsson said, "We know that Anya [Blazkowicz's wife] was pregnant with twins. It made sense to do something fresh and new in the '80s when the twins were older. We also wanted to do a story about growing up and the transition between adolescence and adulthood. Those were the main reasons for going with the two characters."
Wolfenstein: Youngblood launches on July 26 for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
