Bethesda Softworks has just released a new video with roughly twenty-two minutes of gameplay from the upcoming Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus. The upcoming action-adventure FPS also got a new teaser trailer last week: the “No More Nazis” gameplay trailer, aptly named as the game follows a militant American Resistance in a dystopian future in which the Nazis won World War II. The longer gameplay video, “Nazis in New Orleans,” features exploration, combat, and a cutscene in the game.
Bethesda’s accompanying synopsis for the video reads, “The once vibrant city of New Orleans is now a run-down wasteland that’s been walled off by the Nazis. In Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, you’ll set out to rescue Resistance Leader Horton Boone in an attempt to take back the city, defeating every Nazi in your path with an array of unique weapons. Our developer gameplay video also gives you a look at the game’s new contraptions system. Each of three new contraptions gives BJ a new ability for taking on enemies and traversing the environment in unique new ways: The Ram Shackles contraption lets BJ ram into walls — and enemies — for a devastating blow, Battle Walker takes BJ to new heights, making it easy reach new areas or evade attacks, while the Constrictor Harness will allow BJ to squeeze into tight spots like narrow pipes or vents.”
As protagonist BJ Blazkowicz infiltrates a fallen New Orleans in order to team up with Resistance fighters within the city, the video highlights many of the game’s combat mechanics, including dual-wielded shotguns and the weapons upgrade screen. Towards the end of the video, BJ also makes use of a giant firebreathing mechanized beast, which is always a good time. If you’re looking for a couple more minutes of New Colossus footage, you can check out last week’s gameplay trailer below.
Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus will be released on October 27th, 2017 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and in 2018 for the Nintendo Switch.
