Publisher Bethesda and developer MachineGames unveil a retro collector's edition for Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.
Late Sunday night during its E3 2017 press conference publisher Bethesda and developer MachineGames officially announced Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Now, the game’s official Collector’s Edition has been unveiled.
The Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Collector’s Edition features the most wunderbar soldier BJ “Terror-Billy” Blazkowicz turned into a GI-joe style action-figure that looks straight out of the 1960s.

Further, BJ comes equipped with an arsenal of accessories, including six high-powered guns, a hatchet, and of course his bomber jacket. Lastly, the Collector’s Edition comes with not only the game, but an exclusive metal case to house it and a 9″x14″ Blitzmensch poster.

For those that don’t know: Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is the highly anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed first-person shooter, Wolfenstein: The New Order that released back in 2014.
In the game, players are transported to a Nazi-controlled America on a mission to form a resistance group to take back the homeland. Throughout the game you will fight Nazis in iconic locations such as New Orleans, post-nuclear Manhattan, and even UFO-conspiracy small town Roswell, New Mexico.
More specifically, the game takes in 1961, where your (spoilers for the first game) assassination of Nazi General Deathshead was a short-lived victory, as the Nazis have now only increased their stranglehold on the world. Playing once again as killing machine BJ Blazkowicz, aka “Terror-Billy,” you will form a resistance, scourge the Nazi empire, and attempt to save not only the United States but humanity.
The following key features rundown is provided:
- The Mission: Liberate America from the Nazis: Strap in for a heart-pounding journey as you fight the Nazi war machine on American soil. As BJ Blazkowicz, protect your family and friends, forge new alliances and face the demons of your troubled past as you rally pockets of resistance to overthrow the Nazi occupation.
- The People: Rally the Resistance: Immerse yourself in a world brought to life by unforgettable characters who bring a new level of personality to the franchise. Reunite with your friends and fellow freedom fighters such as Anya, Caroline, Bombate, Set, Max Hass, Fergus or Wyatt, and befriend new characters such as Horton and Grace as you take on the evil Frau Engel and her Nazi army.
- The Arsenal: Wield Devastating Guns and Future Tech: Blast Nazis to bits with high-tech weaponry such as the Laserkraftwerk, a multi-purpose, high-intensity laser weapon that can disintegrate enemies, or the Dieselkraftwerk, a rapid-fire, gas-powered grenade launcher that can devastate groups of enemies, or get up close and personal with advanced pistols, submachine guns, and hatchets. When you need a little more versatility, upgrade and dual-wield your favorite guns!
- The Plan: Kill Every Nazi in Your Way: Everyone’s favorite pastime! Unleash your inner war hero as you annihilate Nazis in new and hyper-violent ways. Lock and load futuristic guns and discover BJ’s new set of abilities as you fight to free America. Regardless of your playstyle, invent all-new ways of stabbing, shooting, and killing Nazis.
