The newest entry in the Wolfenstein saga introduced Jess and Soph, the Blazkowicz sisters, but following a lukewarm reception, a new patch has been added to fix some of the community’s biggest gripes.
One of the main complaints about Wolfenstein: Youngblood was that it seemed more difficult than previous titles, so the new patch balances the difficulty a bit more, and you hopefully won’t get your butt kicked by Nazis quite so often.
A major issue for fans who prefer a single-player experience was that the game would not pause when you bring up the menu, even when playing in offline mode. Thankfully this has also been fixed in the patch, so you won’t have to lay down your life at the hands of the third reich every time the doorbell rings.
More patch features include the addition of checkpoints to Towers and end bosses, improved sister AI which will make your NPC partner retreat more often under heavy fire, and an option to toggle enemy health bar visuals if you want a more classic Wolfenstein experience.
While killing Nazis is always fun, for a lot of people there was something about Youngblood that was just a bit off. Hopefully the new patch will go some way towards bringing it up to par with the rest of the fantastic Wolfenstein series. You can get all the details of the patch here on the Bethesda website.
Wolfenstein: Youngblood is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
