Wolfenstein: The Old Blood Takes You Back to Castle Wolfenstein

New standalone expansion Wolfenstein: The Old Blood amends a glaring omission in last year's Nazi-shredding shooter Wolfenstein: The New Order: that is, Castle Wolfenstein itself.

In The Old Blood, you're heading back to the original fortress.
