The Old Blood is a prequel to The New Order, and will be released on May 5th for Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC. It's priced at $19.99 and does not require The New Order to play. Here's the basic premise, as described by the official site:
The year is 1946 and the Nazis are on the brink of winning World War II. In an effort to turn the tide in the allies’ favor, B.J. Blazkowicz must embark on an epic, two-part mission deep within Bavaria…
Part one of Wolfenstein: The Old Blood - Rudi Jäger and the Den of Wolves - pits BJ Blazkowicz against a maniacal prison warden as he breaks into Castle Wolfenstein in an attempt to steal the coordinates to General Deathshead’s compound. In part two – The Dark Secrets of Helga Von Schabbs – our hero's search for the coordinates leads him to the city of Wulfburg where an obsessed Nazi archaeologist is exhuming mysterious artifacts that threaten to unleash a dark and ancient power.
Marcy Long's built herself quite the reputation as the Commonwealth's most hated character. Fallout fans just can't stand the chick, AND she was marked as an essential character, which made her impossible to kill in the game. This dude straight up fires her out of a junk mortar:
And then there's the whole bizarre tutorial of how to get rid of Marcy Long with a f**king Deathclaw:
Well the latest patch to hit Fallout 4 changes all that. The list of fixes in the update includes actual bugs, but also this little weird tidbit:
Jun and Marcy Long are no longer essential after completing “Sanctuary”
My running theory here...Bethesda was all about fixing the players' collective disgust toward Marcy Long. The hate was too real. People took it as far as creating mods in Fallout 4, where you could manage to kill Marcy Long.
Anyways, the reactions so far seem to be pretty dang positive:
Yes indeed, it turns out the latest addition in what's quickly becoming an irritable string of incessant Fallout 4 add-ons allows players to capture, then pit monsters up against one another in a gladiatorial arena.
That's pretty much all there is to get amped about here though; and if we're being entirely honest, this should've been included as part of the original game! Kind of a dickish move on Beth's part to require us to download another DLC to build walls and roofs freed from the perils of having holes in 'em.
Plus, there's the whole Preston Garvey surviving bit...
Like, seriously, man? At least the Automatron add-on spawned strangely transfixing creations like this though:
