Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus has been revealed via a rather lengthy announcement trailer, showing a mix of cutscenes and gameplay footage.
Machine Games have been quietly working on this for some time, it seems, and this time we’ll be fighting to liberate America from the Nazi war machine. There’s… a lot of weirdness. One character appears to be tripping on LSD, while our protagonist seems to have some sort of, uh, robot head armour? Look, it’s weird. Just watch the trailer and you’ll see what I mean.
That aside, it looks like standard Wolfenstein stuff – in a good way. Lots of Nazi killing, lots of dual-wielding, lots of brutal stabbing, lots of giant robots and Nazi cyborgs. Also, an alligator. I’m not sure if the alligator was a Nazi but it got shot anyway. It was probably a Nazi.
You can check out the trailer below. As with everything Bethesda have announced tonight, Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is out this year – on 27 October, specifically.
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
