Featured General Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus

  1. Bethesda has unveiled its follow-up to Wolfenstein: The New Order and Wolfenstein: The Old Blood.


    Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus was introduced to us with a short live action film. The eponymous colossus was Liesel, which is a big robot fire-breathing dog-thing. There’s a weird cat in the trailer too, so there really is something for everyone.

    The trailer really leans into Wolfenstein’s weird new-found sense of humour and love of storytelling. Blazkowicz is going to be the father of twins now, but those damn Nazis are still causing havoc. They seem to have occupied the good old US of A and nobody is pleased about this situation – except the KKK.

    There’s not much in the way of action in the trailer, but there’s certainly the suggestion that you’ll be shooting a lot of Nazis and Ku Klux Klan members as part of a multicultural resistance force.

    Here’s the official description of Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus:
    It looks like there will be some pretty crazy guns in this one, which is great.

    Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus releases October 27 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

  2. Really looking forward to this, the first game was great.
     


  3. The team at MachineGames has thoughtfully provided commentary over the E3 trailer, which you can watch above.

    This time around we’re moving from Europe to America, where the “brutal Nazi version of the American diner, of the parade” exist.

    “I think what’s interesting about America as a setting is that it’s a country very much founded on the idea of freedom. So to have that be under totalitarian control, it’s a very interesting juxtaposition.”

    The devs describe it as “the best story” that they’ve ever made.
     
  4. Bethesda produced another new trailer for Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. Bethesda is working with MachineGames to produce a series of videos that would be examples of the type of TV programming you might see in BJ Blazkowicz’s Wolfenstein world. The videos are propaganda videos derived mainly from TV shows from the 1950s and 60s and appear in small snippets throughout the game. Bethesda will be releasing the full versions of the videos in the next few months as examples of what could happen in the game when you combine oppression, propaganda, and pop culture in dangerous ways.



    The video features Liesel, a robot, dog, fire-breathing menace thing who is a assisting a trapped sheriff under a truck. Some of this we have seen before, but the video also ends with some additional gameplay featuring Liesel that we haven't seen yet.

  5. The thing about Wolfenstein: The New Order that never got as much recognition as it should have was its unique sense of style. The game was set in an alternate timeline where the Nazis won, and much like Bethesda’s Fallout series, it went nuts with the setting to recreate an authentic period feel.

    Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is doubling down on that, with its own unique sense of flair and style. That sense of style and emphasis on setting was the centre of the game’s debut at E3 last month - and it also is the emphasis of this new trailer for the game, titled ‘Strawberry Milkshake’ (you won’t get it unless you watch the trailer).

  6. Yeah, me too. Loved the first two.
     
  7. Some new Wolfenstein II The New Colossus gameplay has surfaced showcasing the different play styles in the shooter.

    Courtesy of PlayStation Underground, the gameplay is part of Sony's hands on with the game from developer MachineGames. You can check out the new gameplay below:


    News has also emerged about the game's Season Pass. MachineGames and Bethesda have decided to expand the universe further with new story missions where you play as other resistance fighters in Nazi occupied America.

    There will be four DLC episodes and they star different playable characters.

    Here are the four DLC episodes, as per Bethesda:

    Episode Zero - Episode Zero introduces you to Joseph Stallion, Jessica Valiant and Gerald Wilkins as they fight for freedom in the American Territories. Blast your way through Nazis using unique abilities and an arsenal of guns in this opening DLC mission.

    The Adventures of Gunslinger Joe - As former professional quarterback Joseph Stallion, smash through Nazi hordes from the ruins of Chicago to the vastness of space!

    The Diaries of Agent Silent Death - As ex-OSS agent and assassin Jessica Valiant, infiltrate Nazi bunkers in California and discover the secrets of Operation San Andreas!

    The Amazing Deeds of Captain Wilkins - As the US Army's renowned hero Captain Gerald Wilkins, embark on a mission to Nazi-controlled Alaska to dismantle Operation Black Sun!

    You get all the DLC packs as part of The Freedom Chronicles Season Pass, which costs £17.99. Episode Zero is also a pre-order bonus.
     
  8. While Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus has already shown us that Nazis can’t get enough strawberry milkshake (see the video above in post #5), the latest trailer for the game shows us - via a jaunty snippet of a black-and-white TV show - that they hate chocolate. They hate it so much that your mean big brother will rat on you just for comfort-eating your way through fascism with a couple of sweet treats.



    Once the sinister educational bit of the trailer is out of the way, we’re back on familiar ground with explosions, giant robots, and said giant robots exploding at the hands of the game’s hero, Captain William Joseph Blazkowicz.
     
  9. It's time for BJ to round up members of the Resistance in Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, and to say they are a motley band of characters would be an understatement.

    This new Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus video takes look at some of the revolutionaries BJ will recruit to fight the Nazi oppressors.

    In the video, you will become more acquainted with Grace, leader of the Manhattan-based Black Revolutionary Front. She's definitely someone you'd want in your corner.

    Other NPCs in the game include BJ's lady-love Anya, along with returning characters Set Roth, Max Hass, Bombate, and Fergus/Wyatt.

    The Nazis have walled off New Orleans, something the head of the New Orleans Resistance, Horton, isn't too pleased over the situation.



    A character named Super Spesh and additional members of the Kreisau Circle will be recruited by BJ.

    Considering Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is rated mature, the video is no exception. Expect colourful language alongside plenty of death and killin' and some adult situations – one scene in particular involves a woman who looks quite a bit like Pam from Archer.
     
  10. The first reboot was an excellent surprise. Fantastic gameplay and a great story coupled with good humour and interesting characters. The sequel looks more of the same, which isn't a bad thing. My only concern is that they might go a little too far on the ridiculous side of things. The opening mission is BJ in a wheelchair strapped with machine guns running around a facility shooting Nazis. If that is how it starts I can only imagine where it will end!
