E3 2017: Wolfenstein 2 The New Colossus Trailer Shows A Nazi-Occupied America
Wolfenstein 2 The New Colossus
(Last Updated On: June 12, 2017)

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus turned out to be one of the new games Bethesda is working on. It was also one of the worst kept secrets heading into E3. We already knew that the game is set to release on October 27th, 2017 for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One thanks to an Amazon leak.

During Bethesda’s E3 conference they rolled out an eight minute trailer for Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus. You can check out the trailer below.

B.J. Blazkowicz has been in a coma for a while and he wakes up only to find that Nazis have taken over America. The game continues after the events of the original Wolfenstein: The New Order and B.J., and his booty call Anya are having twins, but B.J., and Anya want to bring their kids into a world not occupied by Nazis.

They venture to America where the Nazis have controlled the media, the culture, and civil society.

The actual gameplay doesn’t come into play until seven whole minutes into the eight and a half minute long trailer. That’s right… you get seven minutes of cinematics and just a minute and a half of actual gameplay. The gameplay itself is still prototypical of what was in Wolfestein: The New Order and Wolfenstein: The Old Blood. There doesn’t appear to be much more than that other than the new Liesel mechanical dog you ride, which seems awfully similar to Dog from Half-Life 2.

Now if you don’t mind that sort of stuff then whatever. But hopefully they hunker down and give us a reason to be excited about the gameplay and not just the story mode. It’s also still unsettling that they’re trying to get B.J. Blazkowicz to settle down with a chick.

I never took B.J., nor Doom Guy to be family men. It’s a little like when Sylvester Stallone made that gosh awful musical with Dolly Parton called Rhinestone.

    Actual plot : B.J. Blazkowicz wakes up in a beautiful White America, and when he meets the abomination that is antifas/leftists/SJWs he exterminates all of them.

  • Kyle Haddad

    I’m not afraid to admit that I’m probably alone in this, but fuck it. Not interested. I’m of the personal opinion that Wolfenstein should go back to the almost dungeon crawler like experience of 3D, You know, with secret walls, a more maze like level design, and no objective other than making good on your escape and taking out Nazis along the way.

    It might be due to the fact that the only two wolfenstein games (Id Era mind you) I enjoyed was 3D and Return to Castle Wolfenstein. And after replaying the latter just a couple months ago It feels like not only didn’t age all that well, but outside of two or three levels, it felt really close to what ea was doing at the time with Medal of Honor. And those two levels only feel different from MoH through sheer dint of having Zombies.

    • I didn’t particularly like Return to Castle Wolfenstein either. And you’re absolutely right that it felt like Medal of Honor (it was weird but I played both games relatively close to one another).

      I wouldn’t mind the dungeon-crawler style escape, but I don’t know if the current id Software has the talent to pull off in a new-gen way similar to how they did Doom 2016.

      • Kyle Haddad

        well… To be fair ID apparently feels the same way as you do. Why do you think the only WOflenstein game they ever developed was 3D. All the others were developed by different companies.

        I also dont like return to castle wolfenstein that game is a mess.

    • durka durka

      It does have secret walls, i dont see whats so good about mazes.

      Have you played blade of agony?

  • LurkerJK

    I’m happy it got announced, I’m happy the release date is in 4 months

    But fuck Bethesda’s pretentious bullshit

    • durka durka

      yup, why cant they show us bj blowing up giant robots?

      Oh well there will be a stage demo.

    “I never took B.J., nor Doom Guy to be family men”

    At the cost of being the “Ackshually” guy, I believe in the old school Wolfenstein games BJ settled down with a Hollywood movie star and had kids after he helped win the war.

    • I believe in the old school Wolfenstein games BJ settled down with a Hollywood movie star and had kids after he helped win the war.

      Well at least he had his priorities straight. If Nazis are still running rampant, the only cocking B.J. should be doing is with a shotgun.

    • Kyle Haddad

      you have forgotten that blazkowicz changed his last name to blaze and had a grandchild named billy. Billy Blaze would come to be known as Commander Keen.

      • tajlund

        Epic memory. I completely forgot about that. That was why my Commander Keen mystery mini is on my shelf next to B.J.

  • GuyGuysonEsquire

    I loved The New Order (pretty much one of my most favorite games of all time!) and this looks hype as hell, but I hope Machine Games won’t turn this one into pro-lib propaganda.

    • durka durka

      machine games is swedish

      • GuyGuysonEsquire

        Good point, the game is doomed.

  • Gorgon

    To be fair, even if the gameplay remains the same as previous game, they’re fine. The New Order was a good fun shooter.
