Bethesda’s showing of their latest installment to the Wolfenstein series, Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus picks back up on B.J. Blazkowicz in his effort to defend the United States of America after a wave of fascism covers the American borders by Nazis, including the cynical and repulsive Frau Engel. Bethesda first announced this stunning new title towards the tail-end of their press conference during E3, which made the game one of the most coveted showings at the conference.
Here’s the trailer, some gameplay and other key information about Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus:
The game’s release blew the socks off of the audience during their show at E3 2017. Here’s the the second trailer showcasing the game’s new thematic elements:
The story takes place in the 1960s in an alternate dimension where the Nazis manage to secure a victory over the United States and Europe. B.J. Blazkowicz suffers a seemingly fatal injury, though he makes it out alive and covered in scars. Now, locked to a wheelchair, his vengeance to reap on Nazi blood remains unsatisfied, and with the team of some resistance soldiers, he leads a fight to reclaim parts of his homeland from the intrusive Nazi presence.
We’ve also seen some neat fluff trailers, including this one:
The game’s core concept is simple: kill as many Nazis as you can find. We can see there are a lot of cool concepts being thrown around in the newest installment. For instance, Blazkowicz has a robot companion who uses a number of creative ways to take down enemy opponents, including using a grenade launcher, a flame thrower and razor-sharp teeth.
We also see our companions using stealthy throwing knives to silently take enemies out, making stealthy approaches to combat situations interesting and fun-looking. An addition of the hatchet to beautifully piece apart enemy Nazis will also help you keep stock of ammunition while also making for glorious moments of dismemberment when the face of a Nazi meets its sharp end. The new enemy, looking like the Nazi form of the Terminator, will surely drain you of your ammo reserves.
You can also duel-wield weapons in this release, unlike in The New Order. So, if you want to duel wield a rocket launcher and a shotgun for some intense battle situations, you’re totally free to.
Wolfenstein: The New Colossus will be made available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on October 27.
