In a very absurd way of dealing with the situation, Bethesda have taken the approach of going against critics of Wolfenstein: Youngblood by calling them various different things on Youngblood’s official twitter account. The news stems from an article written by VG 24/7 talking about how it was possible to get weapon and ability upgrades faster using real money.
The above tweet has been deleted since and has been replaced by another simply stating that it would not include microtransactions, but the fact that the tweet even existed in the first place is still very interesting. It’s immature in a sense, as press were simply reporting on what they saw and then are being called nazis because of it. Regardless, the confirmation that the game will not have game changing microtransactions should be a relief for Wolfenstein fans.
Wolfenstein: Youngblood will be releasing for PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PS4 on July 26th, with a Stadia version coming later this year.
