Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is the eleventh installment of the Wolfenstein series and a sequel to the 2014's Wolfenstein: The New Order, developed by MachineGames and published by Bethesda Softworks.

Announcement Edit

The game first leaked on Amazon Germany website titled as Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. A couple of days later it was announced on the 11th of June on E3 2017 at Bethesda Softworks' Conference. At the conference, Bethesda published an 8 minute video premiering the game.

Gameplay Edit

The gameplay of The New Colossus is set to be similar to Wolfenstein: The New Order. However, the environments and some elements of how you interact with them will be entirely different. New weapons are introduced and many of them will be possible to dual-wield independently (such as a pistol and a shotgun). Several new game mechanics appear to have been introduced as well, such as Blazkowicz being injured and bound to a wheelchair in the beginning of the game, as well as wielding the Da'at Yichud armoured suit featured briefly in the previous installment. Gameplay trailers also depict the ability to ride Panzerhunde in The New Colossus.

Plot Edit

In 1961, After his fight with Wilhelm "Deathshead" Strasse, William J. Blazkowicz is severely injured and resting at Eva's Hammer, the U-Boat that BJ had stolen for the Kreisau Circle. After he awakes in initially rather poor condition, soon recovering as he continues the fight against the Nazis to ignite the second American Revolution. For this goal, he must regroup with a local resistance group and fight the Nazis in iconic American locations while using technological weapons such as the LaserKraftWerk and Dieselkraftwerk to reawaken the sleeping giant that gained independence in 1776.

DevelopmentEdit

Work began on the game's script in 2014, right after the release of The New Order. The game was switched to a new engine (Id Tech 6), as the original had been based in a time of transition from the 7th to 8th console generations. Multiplayer was considered, but it was felt that the development team would work best on a single aspect of gameplay (in this case, singleplayer). Mick Gordon and Martin Stig Andersen composed music for the game, Gordon for Resistance themes, and Andersen for Nazi music. The PC was the primary testing platform for the game.[2]
