Hello there, ladies and gents. Like I said in my previous post *nudge nudge, wink wink*, I would cover a whole bunch of trailer coming out of E3. So here we go with number 2.
So we have our first trailer for “Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus”, the sequel to “Wolfenstein: The New Order”, a game where you can turn super-nazis into red paste… yes, it’s as amazing as it sounds. Bit of backstory. After having devloped super-technology, the nazis more or less won World War 2. But in a last stand effort in 1946, the allied forces sent one more batch of soldiers to try to stop the evil nazi science man (Dwight Schultz). But the allied forces kind of fucked up which led to the squad leader, William J. Blazkowicz (Brian Bloom) falling into a coma for the next 14 years. Then in 1960 he wakes up and teams up with his nurse (Alicja Bachleda) to find the resistance and stop the evil super-nazis. Also, Jimi Hendrix is there for some reason. It was a great game. Now, I’m gonna spoil the ending of the game. That’s not really a choice of mine, I need to do it to discuss the story presented for this game. *Sigh*. At the end of “The New Order” you fight your way through the super-nazi castle (yes, you read that right) to find Deathshead (that’s the evil nazi science man) and kill him. Which you finally do in a challenging but badass boss battle. Then the entire place explodes, presumably killing B.J. But now with “The New Colossus”, it seems like he fell into a coma… AGAIN… and woke up from it… AGAIN. Oh well, no use crying over repeating themes. But now the nazis have truly taken over, making the world look like a slightly less depressing version of “Man in the High Castle” (a show I reviewied once, *nudge nudge, wink wink*). So now B.J. has to work with a new and improved resistance to hopefully stop the super-nazis once and for all. All of it presented in one of the best game trailer I have seen. It shows some fun ads at the start, gives us a look at the cutscenes and dialogue, and even gives us a bit of gameplay towards the end… and god damn, this looks fucking incredible! “Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus” is set to be released on October 27th of 2017.
What are your thoughts? Are you excited for “The New Colossus”? And what did you think of “The New Order” (if you played it). Leave any and all thoughts in the comments.
Have a good one and enjoy the trailer!
