Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is the eighth release in the Wolfenstein series, and is the second game to be made available on PS4 and Xbox One. The plot continues in America with an alternate history where the Nazis win the Second World War.
Players will continue to play American spy William “B.J.” Blazkowicz, who was the protagonist in the previous game, as he tries to start a new American revolution against the Nazis. Previews of the game were highly praised during E3 2017, winning awards including Best Game and Best Trailer, and it’s also one of our most anticipated games of the year.
Liberate America from the Nazis – Strap in for a heart-pounding journey as you fight the Nazi war machine on American soil. As BJ Blazkowicz, protect your family and friends, forge new alliances and face the demons of your troubled past as you rally pockets of resistance to overthrow the Nazi occupation.
Rally the Resistance – Immerse yourself in a world brought to life by unforgettable characters who bring a new level of personality to the franchise. Reunite with your friends and fellow freedom fighters such as Anya, Caroline, Bombate, Set, Max Hass, Fergus or Wyatt, and befriend new characters such as Horton and Grace as you take on the evil Frau Engel and her Nazi army.
Wield Devastating Guns and Future Tech – Blast Nazis to bits with high-tech weaponry such as the Laserkraftwerk, a multi-purpose, high-intensity laser weapon that can disintegrate enemies, or the Dieselkraftwerk, a rapid-fire, gas-powered grenade launcher that can devastate groups of enemies, or get up close and personal with advanced pistols, submachine guns, and hatchets. When you need a little more versatility, upgrade and dual-wield your favorite guns!
Kill Every Nazi in Your Way – Everyone’s favorite pastime! Unleash your inner war hero as you annihilate Nazis in new and hyper-violent ways. Lock and load futuristic guns and discover BJ’s new set of abilities as you fight to free America. Regardless of your playstyle, invent all-new ways of stabbing, shooting, and killing Nazis.
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is the highly anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed first-person shooter, Wolfenstein: The New Order developed by the award-winning studio MachineGames. An exhilarating adventure brought to life by the industry-leading id Tech 6, Wolfenstein II sends players to Nazi-controlled America on a mission to recruit the boldest resistance leaders left. Fight the Nazis in iconic locations such as small-town Roswell, New Mexico, the bayous and boulevards of New Orleans, and a post-nuclear Manhattan. Equip an arsenal of badass guns, and unleash new abilities to blast your way through legions of advanced Nazi soldiers and über soldiers in this definitive first-person shooter.
Story: America, 1961. Your assassination of Nazi General Deathshead was a short-lived victory. Despite the setback, the Nazis maintain their stranglehold on the world. You are BJ Blazkowicz, aka “Terror-Billy,” member of the Resistance, scourge of the Nazi empire, and humanity’s last hope for liberty. Only you have the guts, guns, and gumption to return stateside, kill every Nazi in sight, and spark the second American Revolution.
Like its predecessor New order, The New Colossus remains purposefully old school, with only limited recharging health and the need to constantly pick-up first aid kits and pieces of armour. But despite plenty of action-only set pieces the game generally has a slower pace than most modern shooters, more akin to GoldenEye – as you explore your surroundings and use stealth as much as possible. Or at least as much as you want to.
In the opening level there are microwave traps you can use to catch Nazis unawares but they’re entirely optional, assuming you don’t get caught in them yourself. There’s also plenty of evidence of the game’s peculiar tonal shifts and strange sense of humour. Not least the way you lay your machinegun between your knees like an enormous phallus. But that almost counts as subtle compared to some of the game’s other moments. When you run into Frau Engel and her brow-beaten daughter the tone becomes a bizarre mix of horror and comedy, as the overweight daughter is mocked for eating too much cake and taunted into executing your comrades with an axe.
we don’t want to give any more away and spoil the game for you, but suffice to say this is a first class shooter, if you love shooters, you need this game, in our opinion its brilliant on all fronts, great storyline and gameplay, a bit of humour, nasty enemies, addictive with great graphics. it has it all , buy this one for sure.
