Awesome news for the game I first played back in 1982 on my glorious Commodore 64, Castle Wolfenstein! Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax® Media company revealed that Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus™, the sequel to the first-person shooter Wolfenstein®: The New Order, is slated for release worldwide on October 27, 2017 for Xbox One, PlayStation® 4, and PC.
Developed by the award-winning team at MachineGames™, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus sends you to Nazi-controlled America where you’ll embark on an exhilarating adventure to free the world from the evil empire’s stranglehold.
Bring in the terror!
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.
BJ in a box?!
On October 27, 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. BJ comes fully equipped to rally the Resistance and free America, with an arsenal of accessories including four high-powered guns, a hatchet, and his bomber jacket. 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.
