After the presentation of Wolfenstein: Youngblood at E3 2019, the developers talked about the approximate duration of the game, which probably stands for a good amount of hours for a single player title.
Speaking to VentureBeat, Machine Games Executive Producer Jerk Gustafsson says that Wolfenstein: Youngblood should take 25-30 hours to complete.
“It’s a bit weird, because this is our biggest game yet,” Gustafsson says. “But it’s a pretty short production time. The story is lighter in content as well as tone. But the level progression and the non-linear narrative gives us the ability to add a lot of activities and a lot of missions to do, so the total game time is actually longer than our previous titles.”
He was 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 will go live on July 26 for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
