Wolfenstein: Youngblood's retail release on Switch seems to lack a game card

I did nazi that coming

Well here's some very disappointing news. If you were planning on picking up Wolfenstein: Youngblood on Switch via retail, there's one thing the package won't contain. According to listings on GameStop, Amazon, and Walmart, the Switch retail version will include a download code instead of a game card. This goes for both the regular and deluxe versions. Somehow, even without the cost of the game card, the Switch version of the game is still priced the same as PS4/XB1 versions.

Thanks to JPSwitchMania for the heads up!

Wolfenstein: Youngblood FAQ reveals German release details, confirms microtransactions

It's actually good news on both fronts

An official FAQ for Wolfenstein: Youngblood has been released, and it's pretty much standard for the most part. There are two questions in particular that fans might be interested to hear the answers for.

First up, the FAQ confirms that there will be microtransactions in the game, but there's a silver lining. These microtransactions will be tied to cosmetic items only. On top of that, most in-game store offerings will be available to purchase via currency earned during gameplay.

Second, we learn that the game will indeed see release in Germany. With that said, the game will be censored from the version that releases in the West. We don't have specifics on what the censored aspects will be just yet, and likely won't find out until the game releases.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood seeing Switch release in Japan as well

Blood for all!

Bethesda isn't going to leave Switch fans in Japan out of the fun. The publisher has confirmed that Wolfenstein: Youngblood will indeed see release for Switch in Japan. The only difference is that we don't know the price point or release date at this time, but it should be shared soon.

Panic Button handling Wolfenstein: Youngblood on Switch

No need to panic

Great news for anyone who plans on picking up Wolfenstein: Youngblood on Switch. Panic Button, the same team that worked on Wolfenstein II and Doom for Switch, is working on the Switch version of Wolfenstein: Youngblood. This game should let Panic Button really strut their stuff, as this time around, a Switch version was planned for day one!

id Software wants you to know they have no ties to the upcoming DOOM movie

Are game movies forever DOOMed?

The first trailer for the direct-to-video movie, DOOM: ANNIHILATION, went online earlier today. Let's just say the reaction wasn't very good. Want to know how bad it was? The film was looking janky enough for the official DOOM Twitter account to send out this statement. The message was then retweeted by the Twitter account for id Software.

We're not involved with the movie.

In other words, the devs for the DOOM games haven't had any input on the movie. A quick glance at the trailer made that painfully aware for most viewers.

RUMOR - New information on the upcoming Doom movie (story, release date, name, images, and more)

We're Doomed

We've been talking about the new Doom movie for awhile now. We know the project is real, but we haven't gotten any concrete details on what it's going to be about. Today we have a new wave of inside info that sheds quite a bit of light on the project, and it all kicks off with the pictures in the gallery above. This round of details comes from a source close to the project.

- the movie will be called DOOM: ANNIHILATION
- Universal 1440 Entertainment is slating the film for a Fall 2019 release
- the official synopsis is as follows...

“DOOM: ANNIHILATION follows a group of space marines as they respond to a distress call from a base on a Martian moon, only to discover it’s been overrun by demonic creatures who threaten to create Hell on Earth.“

- the “space marines” in the synopsis are UAC marines
- written and directed by Tony Giglio (Chaos, Timber Falls)
- executive produced by Lorenzo Di Bonaventura (Bumblebee) and John Wells (Animal Kingdom)
- produced by Jeffery Beach (Jarhead 3: The Siege), Phillip Roth (Death Race: Beyond Anarchy) and Ogden Gavanski (Cult of Chucky)

McFarlane Toys shows off upcoming line of toys from Doom, Mortal Kombat 11, and more

McFarlane Toys has a whole bunch of new figurines on the way. Some of them were on display at Toy Fair 2019, which you can see above. There's figurines from Doom, Mortal Kombat 11, Hollow Knight, and more in the works. Looks like a great lineup of stuff!

RUMOR - Upcoming Doom movie delayed to spruce up special effects

We've known for awhile now that Doom was getting a new film adaptation. We haven't gotten to see any trailers, but some set pics have come out. Other than that, it's been pretty quiet. Unfortunately we're now hearing that we're going to have to wait a bit longer to see the film's release.

Rumor has it that Universal Pictures has delayed the release date of the Doom movie to sometime in Fall 2019. Believe it or not, the delay is actually a good thing. The higher-ups have seen a rough cut of the film and they really enjoyed it, so they pushed the release date back in order to give the film a fresh coat of paint in the visual effects department. It seems a lot of focus is being put on sprucing up the movie's depiction of Hell, to make it that much more hellish.
