Bethesda Softworks has released a new Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus trailer. The upcoming sequel to 2014’s Wolfenstein: The New Order follows BJ Blazkowicz as he tries to lead an uprising in America against the Nazi forces that took over in the game’s alternate history. This provides you with plenty of opportunities to mow down Nazis with a colorful backdrop of Americana, although one that’s been deeply twisted with the Nazis winning World War II and taking over the world.
I still haven’t beaten The New Order yet (I picked it up a couple months ago and really enjoyed it, but I’m behind on my gaming), but I’m already looking forward to The New Colossus. In these troubled times, there’s something to be said for a game that lets you blow off steam by using super-powered weapons to reduce Nazis to mush. Hopefully the upcoming sequel is as much as a grizzly joy as the first one. PROTIP: When playing Wolfenstein, be sure to shout out, “So much for the tolerant left!” when you kill Nazis (thanks to Twitter for that one).
Check out the Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus trailer below. The game will release on October 27th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, and will release for Nintendo Switch in 2018.
Here’s the official synopsis for Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus:
The Nazis have taken over America. They’ve turned Manhattan into a wasteland. They’ve walled off New Orleans and are systematically purging the city, burning people and homes to the ground. And they brazenly walk the streets of small-town USA – going where they want, taking what they want and behaving however they please. But this is not BJ Blazkowicz’s America. The United States will never be broken – not with BJ on the job, rallying the Resistance and igniting a revolution.
