Overview

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is a sci-fi historical-fantasy first-person shooter developed by MachineGames and published by Bethesda for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on October 27, 2017. A Nintendo Switch port, developed by Panic Button, was later released on June 29, 2018.

The direct sequel to Wolfenstein: The New Order, The New Colossus is set five months after William "B.J." Blazkowicz and the revived Kreisau Circle put an end to the plans of Nazi general Wilhelm "Deathshead" Strasse in an alternate-historical 1960. After waking up from a coma aboard a commandeered Nazi U-boat ("Eva's Hammer"), Blazkowitcz and his band of resistance fighters must work to liberate the United States of America from Nazi occupation while being hunted by Nazi commander Frau Engel.

Built on id Tech 6 (the same used for the 2016 revival of Doom), The New Colossus is known for its use of current events in the game's marketing and also features the entirety of Wolfenstein 3D emulated as an easter egg (as the in-universe "Wolfstone 3D", modified with the roles reversed).

The game also received three short downloadable campaigns between December 2017 and March 2018, known as "The Freedom Chronicles". Set shortly after the events of the main game, each campaign focuses on the story of a different unrelated protagonist (American athlete Joseph Stallion, British assassin Jessica Valiant, and American soldier Jerry Wilkins).
