MachineGames shook the world with the release of Wolfenstein: The New Order back in 2014. And it looks like they’re poised to do it again as Bethesda unveiled Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus during their E3 Press Conference late last night.
This time, the story shifts to America as BJ Blazkowicz works to defy the Nazis and start a second American Revolution in Roswell, New Orleans, and a post-nuclear Manhattan. You can see just where the story is headed in the trailer embedded above, or you can take a look at Blazkowicz’s anti-Nazi battle plan (courtesy of the developer) right here:
America, 1961. Your assassination of Nazi General Deathshead was a short-lived victory. Despite the setback, the Nazis maintain their stranglehold on the world. You are BJ Blazkowicz, AKA “Terror-Billy,” member of the Resistance, scourge of the Nazi empire, and humanity’s last hope for liberty. Only you have the guts, guns, and gumption to return stateside, kill every Nazi in sight, and spark the second American Revolution.
The Mission: Liberate America from the Nazis
Strap in for a heart-pounding journey as you fight the Nazi war machine on American soil. As BJ Blazkowicz, protect your family and friends, forge new alliances and face the demons of your troubled past as you rally pockets of resistance to overthrow the Nazi occupation.
The People: Rally the Resistance
Immerse yourself in a world brought to life by unforgettable characters who bring a new level of personality to the franchise. Reunite with your friends and fellow freedom fighters such as Anya, Caroline, Bombate, Set, Max Hass, Fergus or Wyatt, and befriend new characters such as Horton and Grace as you take on the evil Frau Engel and her Nazi army.
The Arsenal: Wield Devastating Guns and Future Tech
Blast Nazis to bits with high-tech weaponry such as the Laserkraftwerk, a multi-purpose, high-intensity laser weapon that can disintegrate enemies, or the Dieselkraftwerk, a rapid-fire, gas-powered grenade launcher that can devastate groups of enemies, or get up close and personal with advanced pistols, submachine guns, and hatchets. When you need a little more versatility, upgrade and dual-wield your favorite guns!
The Plan: Kill Every Nazi in Your Way
Everyone’s favorite pastime! Unleash your inner war hero as you annihilate Nazis in new and hyper-violent ways. Lock and load futuristic guns and discover BJ’s new set of abilities as you fight to free America. Regardless of your playstyle, invent all-new ways of stabbing, shooting, and killing Nazis.
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on October 27.
