The unofficial guide to Wolfenstein: Youngblood contains a comprehensive set of information required to understand all mechanics of this game and complete it in 100%. In the initial pages of our guide, we have included various tips and hints on the following subjects: combat, exploration, playing in cooperation mode, finding secrets and collectibles, and defeating bosses. In particular, problematic issues have been discussed in a separate Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) section, which contains answers to the most troublesome elements of the game.
The most important part of our guide is the walkthrough, which contains details about all main and side missions. Our step-by-step guide explains, among other things, how to achieve mission objectives, how to win subsequent battles and how to defeat particularly demanding enemies. Also, we couldn't forget about detailed description of secrets and collectibles that you may find during your progress in the game. We provide information about the whereabouts and exact locations of each collectible. The whole is complemented by a trophy guide, in which we described in detail all available achievements and trophies in the game.
Wolfenstein: Youngblood is a spin-off of a popular FPS series. The main characters of the new story are two daughters of B. J. Blazkowicz - Sophie and Jessica. The game is set in the 80s of the XX century and takes place in occupied Paris. As Sophie and Jessica play their way through the missions, they have to face a lot of challenging battles against super-soldiers, robots and other Nazi monstrosities. An important novelty is that the sisters work in cooperation. The game can be played in two-player cooperative mode or with an AI bot as your companion.

If you have purchased the Deluxe Edition, you can use your Buddy Pass to invite one of your friends to play with you. The second player will be able to download the game and join the you in cooperation mode without any additional charges.
Does Wolfenstein: Youngblood have a Mein Leben difficulty level?
No, Wolfenstein: Youngblood doesn't offer Mein Leben difficulty. As a reminder, this was an extreme difficulty setting, which debuted in Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. Playing in this mode you had only one life at our disposal and the save game option was disabled.
The highest level of difficulty in Wolfenstein: Youngblood is Uber, the same as in Wolfenstein: The New Order and Wolfenstein: The Old Blood. It offers very challenging combat, but each battle can be repeated many times. Also, save games are available.

In order to play the version without censorship, you need to purchase the International Edition of the game (the version deliberately devoid of Nazi symbolism will also be available for sale).
Does Wolfenstein: Youngblood offer a split-screen option?
No, Wolfenstein: Youngblood does not have a split-screen feature. It is not available on PC or console versions, even if you have two controllers.

In which versions is Wolfenstein: Youngblood offered?
Wolfenstein: Youngblood is sold in two versions - Standard and Deluxe Edition. The unique content of the Deluxe Edition is:

- Cyborg Skin Pack - it contains a cyborg skin for your character, the titanium alloy skin for each weapon, the titanium alloy axe, the titanium alloy knife, and armor enhancing item. It is worth noting that having Cyborg 1980 pep signal makes the game much easier, because after its activation both sisters can fully regenerate their armor.
