The newest trailer for Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus gives us a look at the game’s world through its fictional television propoganda, Blitzmensch. The program features the title’s namesake fighting villainous interpretations of American symbols such as Uncle Sam, and the Statue of Liberty. The show’s animation style is reminiscent of cartoons from the sixties and seventies.
Here is a description of General Irene Engel’s (the game’s antagonist) favorite television program:
Holterdiepolter! It’s official – Blitzmensch is a blast! General Engel’s favorite TV show is getting bigger and better each year! Päng! Blitzmensch and his partner Fräulein Fox save the world from capitalism, communism, and degenerates every day in this amazing show celebrating die Überlegenheit – the superiority – of the Reich and the Aryan race. Ach, nee! Who will be this week’s baddie? The evil Money Grubber? The notorious Proletariat-Man? The vicious Mr. Yankee Monkey? Don’t miss a single episode of Blitzmensch!
While the first half focuses on world building for the highly anticipated shooter, gameplay was showcased giving players a glimpse of the gruesome and action-packed sequel.
As mentioned in the trailer, those who pre-order Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus will receive The Freedom Chronicles: Episode Zero. The special bonus will introduce players to Joseph Stallion, Jessica Valiant, and Gerald Wilkins as they shoot their way through various American Territories.
The Freedom Chronicles: Episode Zero was recently announced as part of the game’s season pass as well. The $24.99 DLC bundle will include the aforementioned episode as well as three additional episodes showcasing each of the previously stated characters. The Freedom Chronicles Season Pass will be included in the Digital Deluxe Edition of the game.
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus bring characters to a Nazi-ruled America in the year 1961. Once again, players will assume the role of BJ Blazkowicz as he shoots his way to freedom through hundreds of soldiers and machines.
Bethesda Softworks and MachineGames will launch Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus on October 27 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
