Here’s what’s inside that locked door in Wolfenstein’s submarine

Looks like an arcade mode and a comics store

There’s a locked vault in the submarine hub area of Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus that has a timer on it. Apparently it’s going to unlock sometime around Monday. But this YouTuber clipped right on through to take a gander at the placeholders inside.

So, this is a spoiler warning if you want to wait to open your presents whenever that comes.

Blondbassist found what appears to be a records room, and from there it looks like users will be able to access some kind of new arcade mode, and an area for watching videos and reading digital comics.

Blondbassist was able to do this with the day-one, version 1.0 edition of Wolfenstein 2, noting that the “noclip” developer console that allowed him through the locked sub door has been patched out of future iterations.

There are a bunch of in-game documents scattered on the ground to give users a diversion, as well as some kind of capsule or diving chamber with a number above it. There’s nothing inside that, yet, says Blondbassist, but who knows.

The arcade mode could be interesting, but who knows that that entails. “Combat simulations” is the only thing the placeholder card says so far. As for the comic books, Titan Comics is two books into its Wolfenstein adaptation (available through Comixology) but it’s not clear if this is the same thing or something new.
