E3 2017 – Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Announced

The finale to Bethesdaland was a brand new Nazi-Stomping extraviganza by the name of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. While the advertising was a little odd, as you can see by the trailer below, it looks like you’ll be taking the boots of BJ Blazkowicz once again to take America back from the Nazi scumbags.

According to the official press release, the story for Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is as follows:

You are BJ Blazkowicz, aka “Terror-Billy,” member of the Resistance, scourge of the Nazi empire, and humanity’s last hope for liberty. A heart-pounding journey brought to life by the industry-leading id Tech® 6, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus sends you on a mission to recruit the boldest Resistance leaders left.  Fight back against the Nazis in iconic locations such as small-town Roswell, New Mexico, the flooded streets of New Orleans, and a post-nuclear Manhattan. Equip an arsenal of badass guns, and unleash new abilities to blast your way through legions of advanced Nazi soldiers, cyborgs, and über soldiers in this definitive first-person shooter. Only you have the guts, guns, and gumption to return stateside, kill every Nazi in sight, and spark the second American Revolution.

Bethesda will also release the Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Collector’s Edition, which includes a 1/6 scale 12-inch action figure of the game’s Nazi-killin’ hero William Joseph “BJ” Blazkowicz, packaged in a premium, 1960s-style box. Available through participating retailers across the globe, this limited Collector’s Edition also includes the eagerly awaited game inside an exclusive metal case, and a 9″x14″ Blitzmensch poster. Fans are encouraged to check with preferred retailers for pre-order incentives and additional special edition offerings.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus will be released on October 27, 2017 on Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus has not yet been rated by the ESRB.
