Wolfenstein: Youngblood is out now, and it offers microtransactions that let players quickly buy several in-game items with real money. So far, the number of things that players can buy with gold bars is limited to cosmetics only, which doesn't affect the difficulty of the game at all.
Gold bars are the only in-game currency in Wolfenstein: Youngblood that can be purchased with real-world money. Other currencies include silver coins and ability points, both of which are obtainable by playing the game.
The current pricing for gold bars is as follows:
- 500 gold bars = $4.99
- 1100 gold bars = $9.99
- 2,500 gold bars = $19.99
Regardless of all the confusion surrounding Youngblood's microtransactions, gold bars can not be used to gain any gameplay advantage. At the moment, players can only use gold bars to purchase cosmetic power suit skins, helmets, weapon skins, and temporary boosters for things like health, armor, and XP. In addition to all that, gold bars can be used to purchase Deluxe edition items only if players have the Standard edition of the game.
How to Get Gold Bars in Wolfenstein: Youngblood
At the time of writing, there is only one way to get gold bars in Youngblood. Players can only purchase this premium currency through the specific store for the platform. Steam, PlayStation Store, and Xbox Live all offer gold bars for similar prices. Redeemable digital codes for gold bars are also available for Xbox One through different online retailers.
Fortunately, it’s not required to buy gold bars at all. Almost all of the in-game items can also be purchased with silver coins. However, silver coins can not be used to purchase gold bars and vice versa.
PC gamers have already found a way to bypass all of the game’s microtransactions with Cheat Engine. This cheat allows them to acquire an unlimited amount of silver coins without even killing a single enemy. There’s no telling how long the cheat will work, but according to Reddit, it’s still working. There's a high chance that this cheat will be disabled in an upcoming patch, but until then PC players can enjoy buying all types of in-game goodies without grinding at all.
