Wolfenstein: Youngblood Story Trailer
NSFW: This video is not suitable for all audiences.
I chuckled watching this trailer a second time.
Fascinatingly, the Standard Edition will retail for $29.99. The Deluxe Edition, which includes The Buddy Pass and the Cyborg Skin Pack, is priced at $39.99.
Maybe we have to thank Ninja Theory for starting the trend with Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, by pricing a high quality game for less than the automatic AAA price of $59.99.
At $29.99/$39.99, I think Wolfenstein: Youngblood will sell really well.
Per the Wolfenstein: Youngblood FAQ, the Deluxe Edition’s Buddy Pass allows you to invite a friend, who hasn’t purchased Wolfenstein: Youngblood, to play through the entire game with you, for free.
Well it’s free for your friend, but it’s going to cost you $10.00 more, if you want the Deluxe Edition (which includes the Buddy Pass).
But you can use the Buddy Pass with different people, over and over again.
They can also join other co-op games, not just yours, after downloading the files on their computer.
Since it’s a restricted version of the game, Buddy Pass players
must pay for the full game upgrade, to play solo.
The Buddy Pass is an interesting way to market a game and try to get additional sales. But, I wonder, if my friend decides to purchase the game, will Bethesda give me a cut of the sale or no?
I am being facetious, they will not. But they should. 🙂
