Jackson RyanFormer Science Editor
Jackson Ryan was CNET's science editor, and a multiple award-winning one at that. Earlier, he'd been a scientist, but he realized he wasn't very happy sitting at a lab bench all day. Science writing, he realized, was the best job in the world -- it let him tell stories about space, the planet, climate change and the people working at the frontiers of human knowledge. He also owns a lot of ugly Christmas sweaters.
Mark Serrels is an award-winning Senior Editorial Director focused on all things culture. He covers TV, movies, anime, video games and whatever weird things are happening on the internet. He especially likes to write about the hardships of being a parent in the age of memes, Minecraft and Fortnite. Definitely don't follow him on Twitter.
At the Bethesda E3 showcase last year, we got our first look at the new Wolfenstein game -- Youngblood. This year, Bethesda had a few more details and a brand new trailer to show off ahead of its impending release.
Youngblood follows the twin daughters of series' protagonist B.J. Blaskowicz and follows the duo as they move through Nazi-occupied Paris to find their missing father.
MachineGames, responsible for previous entries in Bethesda's rebooted Wolfenstein series, is again helming Youngblood, but stablemate Arkane Games, responsible for the
, is co-developing.
Machine Games is promising a grander scale to the game -- and the ability to kill nazis with a friend. That's right: Youngblood will have co-op. You can check out the trailer below:
