Who to Pick in Wolfenstein Youngblood – Soph or Jess?

Whether you pick Sophia or Jessica in Wolfenstein Youngblood isn’t going to have any particular impact on the game. The sisters are completely equal regarding their starting abilities. If you’re out of the loop, in Youngblood, you play as one of the Blazkowicz sisters. At the start of the game, you can pick which one you want, regardless of whether you’re playing solo or with a friend. So, I guess in the interest of balance, the developers made them almost completely equal. So, yeah; it’s safe to roll with whichever one you prefer.

Now, that’s not to say that there is no difference between the two characters. See, they start off with different guns. Sophia begins the adventure bearing a Kugelgewehr, which is a short-to-mid range weapon. Jessica wields a Sturmgewehr, and that’s more of a long range situation. Now, as the game goes on, both characters will be able to get all the same weapons and abilities, but it will matter what you choose at the start. This is especially true if you’re playing in co-op, be it via Buddy Pass or otherwise.

Wolfenstein Youngblood launched on July 25th on PC, and is coming to consoles on July 26th. And by consoles, I mean PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Oh, and it is also coming to Google Stadia at a later, as of yet unannounced date, so you can look forward to that, too.
