Three add-ons are on the way for Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, and we now know when we’ll be able to continue the rebellion against Nazi dominance. Publisher Bethesda Softworks announced release dates for two of the three downloadable content packs, all of which make up the game’s $24.99 season pass.

Wolfenstein 2’s first post-launch DLC pack, The Adventures of Gunslinger Joe, is set to be released Dec. 14. The Diaries of Agent Silent Death will follow six weeks later on Jan. 30, 2018. There’s no concrete release date for the third and final add-on, The Amazing Deeds of Captain Wilkins; Bethesda said only that it plans to release that DLC pack in March. The company has confirmed that it will be possible to buy the three DLC packs individually, although it has yet to announce pricing.

Each add-on in The Freedom Chronicles stars a different American resistance fighter. Here are the synopses from Bethesda, which says the four DLC packs (including the prologue, “Episode Zero”) will offer more than nine hours of additional content:

  • The Adventures of Gunslinger Joe: As former professional quarterback Joseph Stallion, smash through Nazi hordes from the ruins of Chicago to the vastness of space!
  • The Diaries of Agent Silent Death: As ex-OSS agent and assassin Jessica Valiant, infiltrate Nazi bunkers in California and discover the secrets of Operation San Andreas!
  • The Amazing Deeds of Captain Wilkins: As the US Army’s renowned hero Captain Gerald Wilkins, embark on a mission to Nazi-controlled Alaska to dismantle Operation Black Sun!

Stallion, Valiant and Wilkins are all characters in a set of pulp novels in the Wolfenstein universe — in other words, they’re fictional characters in the game’s fiction. Except they’re totally not, since you’ll be able to play as them in Wolfenstein 2’s DLC! You can check out all three characters in “Episode Zero,” which is available now for season pass holders and people who pre-ordered Wolfenstein 2.

The art for The Freedom Chronicles, which you can see above, features the logo for Escalation Studios — suggesting that the Dallas-based studio is working on the Wolfenstein 2 DLC alongside developer MachineGames. Escalation, which Bethesda acquired in February 2017, previously worked on multiplayer elements for a number of id Software games such as Doom and Rage.
