Its the BJ twins! Wolfenstein Younblood is a co-op that encourages you to team up with a friend. You dont have to of course, but part of the hook with this Wolfenstein is that you can enjoy it with a gamer pal. The other cool thing about it is that with the buddy pass you can play the entire game with someone else and they dont even have to have a copy of the game themselves. Which I must say, sounds pretty forward thinking to me. Right now we have the official Wolfenstein YoungBlood system requirements, so lets see how well you can run it.

Wolfenstein Youngblood Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Win 7, 8.1, or 10 (64-Bit versions)
  • CPU: AMD FX-8350/Ryzen 5 1400 or Intel Core i5-3570/i7-3770
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 4 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GTX 770 4GB (Current available GPU GTX1650) or AMD equivalent
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HD: 40 GB available space

Wolfenstein Youngblood Recommended System Requirements 

  • OS: Win 7, 8.1, or 10 64-Bit
  • CPU: AMD FX-9370/Ryzen 5 1600X or Intel Core i7-4770
  • RAM: 16 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 6 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB (Current available GPU RTX2060) or AMD equivalent
  • DX: DirectX 11
  • HD: 40 GB available space

So these specs look pretty solid. Wolfenstein: Youngblood must have a PC that has at least the GeForce GTX 1060/Radeon R9 390 graphics card for recommended. The CPU needs to be either an AMD Ryzen R5 1600X or Intel Core i7-4770 4-Core 3.4GHz and this should return around the 60 Frames per second mark at 1080p resolution. The system memory required for Wolfenstein: Youngblood is 16 GB at recommended reqs. Now on to the min reqs, we can see it drops to the Radeon R9 290 graphics card with a Core i7-3770 4-Core 3.4GHz, or perhaps a Core i5-3570 from Intel processors.

Otherwise a Ryzen R5 1400 or FX-8350 would do for the min CPU requirement on the AMD side to run Wolfenstein: Youngblood specs. Minimum would most likely mean low graphics setting and lower resolution, perhaps 720p. Dont forget to check that your GPU DirectX capability is high enough. Wolfenstein: Youngblood needs a GPU capable of running DirectX 11. This all means your PC should be 3 years or newer to get Young Blood to run well.  

Whats Wolfenstein YoungBlood all about?

Its set 19 years on from the Wolfenstein II events. BJ Blazkowicz went missing following the Paris mission into Nazi occupied territory. BJ's twin daughters head out into the unknown to find their father. These two tough women have been trained for years by their battle-hardened father, Jess and Soph Blazkowicz, are nearly unstoppable.

We can team up with a buddy or go solo, exploring, what they are claiming to be one of the most open ended Wolfenstein experiences to date. The twins will level up, explore, and complete missions to unlock new abilities, weapons, gadgets, cosmetics, and more to complement your playstyle and customize your appearance.

You and your friend/twin, will head out from your base deep in the Paris Catacombs, where you conduct your plans to take down the Nazi regime, piece by bloody piece.   Ok lets take a look at a video of the E3 gameplay from Bethesda to get you in the mood.

Youngblood will release on 26th July for $29/£24.99 on Steam.

And if you pre-order you get the Legacy Pack, which unlocks outfits and weapons used by BJ himself.

  • New Colossus Jacket power suit skin
  • BJ’s Army power suit skin
  • Old Blood Pipe 
  • Old Blood Knife
  • WW2 Weapon Skin Set, for all ranged weapons

According to Nvidia's website it will feature ray-traced effects, and performance-accelerating NVIDIA Adaptive Shading.

Vulkan, actually...


Wolfenstein: Youngblood will utilise Ray Tracing using the Nvidia VKRay extension for the Vulkan API

Right, then that dx11 in the specs is especially misleading :D

I mean...Wolf 2 was Vulkan, so I see no reason why they'd move from it. I guess the DX11 thing is that you need a GPU that can manage certain instructions, but any DX11 GPU can automagically pretty much run both DX12 and Vulkan, so that's the minimum spec. After all, GPU manufacturers supply a supported DX version, rather than OpenGL or Vulkan, so it makes sense why that is listed.


As for raytracing - the minimum spec ofc will be the 1809 Win10 build for DXR support, as well as a raytracing-capable GPU, notably the RTX series (though, IIRC, higher-end Pascal cards also have raytracing enabled, but they do it all rather slowly, mostly just useful for evaluative purposes).

Specs aren't misleading. It's just author coming up with stuff . Read requirements on official sources. No mention of directx at all. By the way system requirements are identical to Wolfenstein 2.
