Earlier this week, publisher Bethesda and developer MachineGames released a new story trailer for Wolfenstein: Youngblood, the upcoming spin-off and stand-alone sequel to Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus that takes places 19 years after the events of the second game and stars BJ's twin daughters. It also revealed the game's release date: July 26.
Buried underneath the new trailer and release date though was word of a Buddy Pass, which comes with the Deluxe Edition of the game and allows you to share the game with a friend and play the entirety of it together, even if they don't own the games themselves.
It's unclear if the Deluxe Edition comes with anything else other than the Buddy Pass and The Cyborg Skin Pack add-on, but we do know that pre-ordering either edition will get you the Legacy Pack add-on, which features weapons and outfits used by the twins' father.
As you may know, Wolfenstein: Youngblood isn't the first game to come packing a feature like this, but it's not an incredibly common feature either. It's a nice freebie I wish more games took advantage of, however, it's a bit of a shame that it's locked behind the game's Deluxe Edition.
Wolfenstein: Youngblood is poised to release on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch on July 26. It will cost $39.99.
