Bethesda updates Wolfenstein: Youngblood FAQ to mention that retail copies won't include a game card

A confirmation of the news we didn't want

Earlier in the week we learned that Wolfenstein: Youngblood's retail release on Switch will not include a game card. It's a download code in a box, and that goes for both versions. After a lot of backlash, Bethesda has now updated the official game FAQ to make mention of this detail.

The Nintendo Switch version of Wolfenstein: Youngblood will be available digitally. The physical version of Wolfenstein: Youngblood will be a digital download code in the box with no game cartridge. A download will be required to play the game.

QuakeCon 2019 kicks off the 'Year of Doom,' will include Doom Eternal news an 'a few surprises'

We're all DOOMED!

Did you know that Doom is celebrating its 25th anniversary? That's probably why Bethesda and id Software have labeled 2019 as the Year of Doom. That celebration of all things Doom officially kicks off at this year's QuakeCon, which is set for July 25th to 28th, 2019.

Wondering what's in store for QuakeCon 2019 as far as Doom is concerned? id Software says there will be “Doom-inspired activities, events, exclusives, developer panels, hands-on demos, new information about Doom Eternal, and a few surprises we aren’t quite ready to talk about.”

A better look at Wolfenstein: Youngblood's two different covers

Which one do you like?

As was announced yesterday, Wolfenstein: Youngblood is going to have a regular and deluxe edition. Today we have a better look at the cover art for both versions. I honestly don't know which one I like better!

Wolfenstein: Youngblood's standard release in Europe, Australia and New Zealand will be digital-only

Bloody hell

Wolfenstein: Youngblood was confirmed for Switch today, which is definitely some excellent news. Unfortunately, we have some bad news to follow that confirmation.

If you're looking to grab the standard edition of this game in Europe, Australia or New Zealand, you'll have to go with the digital option. For whatever reason, a retail release of the standard version will not release in those parts of the world. At least you can always import!

DOOM: ANNIHILATION gets its debut trailer

Ultra nightmare

Looks like all that leaked info on the new DOOM movie was spot-on yesterday! We now have the first trailer for the movie, and it seems to be doing things a bit differently from the first movie adaptation. I'll need to see a bit more before I decide whether or not to see this in theaters, but as of right now, I'm cautiously optimistic.

GameStop once again lists Wolfenstein: Youngblood for Switch

Will it or won't it? That's been the question ever since Wolfenstein: Youngblood was revealed. That discussion only got more intense when GameStop added a listing for a Switch version to their website. Unfortunately, shortly after it went live, that listing was removed.

Well here we are again, as GameStop's latest list of upcoming Switch titles includes Wolfenstein: Youngblood. We'd like to think it's going to happen, but the fact that this list STILL includes Dragon Quest Heroes 1 & 2 gives us doubt. That listing was part of GameStop's software lineup since day one, and as you well know, that didn't quite pan out.

Doom on Switch used to showcase the enhanced visuals overclocking can provide


Last week, we talked about a new mod for Switch that let you overclock your system. While it's a very dangerous thing to do, it does produce impressive results. The above GIF shows off how Doom looks running on Switch at the regular 307 MHz, followed by how things look at 768Mhz. There's no doubt the visuals look much more impressive, but again, running your Switch overclocked to this degree could end up causing some serious trouble.

Final Doom soundtrack Easter egg discovered

Did you know that there were 5 Easter eggs in the Doom soundtrack? Did you know that 4 of them had been discovered already? It only took 2+ years for someone to find the final Easter egg, which you can check out above.

As you can see, there's a hidden message in the song “Authorization; Olivia Pierce.” When the pitch of the song is increased at the 50-second mark, you can hear Olivia Pierce herself say, “You could not have saved them anyway.” This is a quote straight from the game, which was then hidden in the song.
