Remember I told you about a standalone prequel to the Wolfenstein reboot back in March called The Old Blood?

Well it’s out today for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4, bringing with it more over-the-top action but with new levels, weapons, moves and retro-future Nazis to kill set back in this alternate-history 1946, before BJ was bludgeoned into a coma.

It’s cheap, too – you can grab it from Green Man Gaming for $15.39 (around R185 once you’ve used the 23% discount on the $19.99 list price) for PC, or R290 for Xbox One from Animeworx and R270 for the PlayStation 4 version from Takealot.

To whet your appetite for yet more Nazi-slaughter, here’s a video of protagonist BJ Blazkowicz hitting Nazis with his brand-new pipe weapon, taking out prototype supersoldiers with his wits and showing off some of the game’s gorgeous-looking levels, including a good look at the outside of Castle Wolfenstein itself.

Just a heads-up, however, some of the visuals are a little, er, graphic.

Deon got his first taste of PC gaming at the tender age of 11 when his father bought an 8088 XT, ostensibly to "help him with his homework". Instead, it introduced him to Leisure Suit Larry, King Graham, Sonny Bonds and many more, and Deon has been a PC gamer and hardware enthusiast ever since. He landed his first professional writing gig in 2006 at a prestigious local PC magazine, a very happy happenstance as he got to write for a living about things he loves - tech, PCs, gaming, and everything in between. He's been writing about it all ever since, and loves every minute of it.
