After a cryptic tease that was glimpsed all the way back during the introduction to last year’s Bethesda E3 conference, Bethesda finally took to the stage at this year’s E3 conference tonight to confirm that the mysterious Wolfenstein game is indeed real. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus capped off Bethesda’s rather speedy showcase tonight, with the game once again being developed by MachineGames.
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus presents an especially insane, off-the-wall presentation as well, as protagonist, B.J. Blazkowicz is revealed to have survived the events of the previous Wolfenstein: The New Order, and is in the process of formulating a resistance effort in a dystopian 1950’s-esque future that continues to be dominated by Nazis. The game appears to boast a cast of eccentric characters, and will bring back an extra exaggerated take on the single-player-driven first-person shooter gameplay that made the previous Wolfenstein: The New Order such a big surprise success in 2014.
There are still many questions surrounding Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, but it turns out that the game isn’t too far away from release! We’ll be able to get our hands on Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus on October 27th of this year, when it will release for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Keep marching to Eggplante for all major news and updates on Wolfenstein.
