BJ Blazkowicz is back in Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus

MachineGames will bring players back to its alternate history hellscape with Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus. The developer broke the news at Bethesda’s 2017 E3 press event.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is coming to PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One Oct. 27.

Bethesda revealed the new Wolfenstein in an extended trailer that was part live-action, but mostly gameplay. In the sequel, it looks like protagonist BJ Blazkowicz — aka “Terror-Billy” in the sequel — will take his fight against the Nazi regime to America, where he’ll ally himself with a group of militant resistance fighters.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus takes place in 1961. Players will journey from Roswell, New Mexico to gator-filled New Orleans to post-nuclear New York. “Equip an arsenal of badass guns, and unleash new abilities to blast your way through legions of advanced Nazi soldiers, cyborgs, and über soldiers in this definitive first-person shooter,” Bethesda said in an official announcement.
