Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus News

Wolfenstein 2's remaining season pass story episodes now have release dates

Bethesda has announced releases dates for the three remaining episodes in Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus' story-based season pass DLC, The Freedom Chronicles.

Each new episode lets you experience Wolfenstein's Nazi occupation of America through the eyes of different resistance fighters. You'll explore the ruins of Chicago (and, apparently, space) as professional quarterback Joseph Stallion, you'll infiltrate Nazi bunkers in California as ex-OSS agent and assassin Jessica Valiant, and head to Alaska as the heroic Captain Gerald Wilkins, in a bid to thwart the Nazis' Operation Black Sun.

The Freedom Chronicles' opening salvo - known as Episode Zero - is already out, and introduces Stallion, Valiant, and Wilkins. It was made available as part of Wolfenstein 2's pre-order purchases, and is also included in The Freedom Chronicles season pass.

Assassin's Creed Origins physical sales roughly on par with Syndicate's

Assassin's Creed Origins physical sales roughly on par with Syndicate's

Super Mario Odyssey is Nintendo Switch's biggest launch yet.

Assassin's Creed Origins has taken the UK chart top spot with physical sales roughly equal to that of Assassin's Creed Syndicate.

Physical sales on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One were just a few copies lower than Syndicate's equivalent total back in 2015, although the rise of digital sales since then will likely push Origins' overall result comfortably higher.

(UK numbers company Chart-Track does not count digital console or PC sales.)

Yes, Hitler is in Wolfenstein 2

We did Nazi that coming.

Tucked away at the end of the Wolfenstein 2 launch trailer, below, is a brief glimpse at a coughing and spluttering Hitler himself. Well, the back of his head. So yes, Hitler is in Wolfenstein 2.

Watch an hour-and-a-half of brand new Wolfenstein 2 gameplay

As you'll know if you read my Wolfenstein 2 hands-on preview, I'm excited for MachineGames' upcoming first-person shooter. Today, I'm excited to present to you an hour-and-a-half of brand new gameplay.

Johnny and Aoife recently played two different sections of Wolfenstein 2: The Reunion level I played at E3 (where BJ is woken up a broken man who must use a wheelchair to escape the Nazis), and Roswell, which is the really exciting one. Here, BJ explores the town dressed as a fireman, eventually infiltrating an underground Nazi bunker to steal a train. Your goal: to destroy a giant robot and fire a nuke, as you do.

Keep an eye out for the moment a Nazi soldier tries and fails to teach two KKK goons to speak German on the streets of Roswell. It's pretty unnerving, but very Wolfenstein.
