WOLFENSTEIN II: THE NEW COLOSSUS

Wolfenstein II: The New ColossusWolfenstein II: The New Colossus was released on October 27, 2017 by Bethesda. The game was developed by Machine Games. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is a first person shooter.

This game is a sequel to Wolfenstein: The New Order. It painted a bleak picture of the 1960s.

Now back in America, 1961. The assassination of Nazi General Deathshead was a short-lived victory. 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.

Blazkowicz is back, this time the game starts off with more of a first person roller style, as the hero must push and steer his wheel chair with one hand and gun down Alt-Right prototypes with the other.

Traps are available to trick the Nazi soldiers who are trying to stop Blazkowicz from making a run for it.

The game uses a lot of flashbacks to help develop the story. The atrocities from the Nazi occupation help cement the horror of the game.

Eventually Blazkowicz is back on his feet with a machine gun in hand after finding some power armour. The game also allows dual wielding of weapons. The hatchet is this year’s gimmick for a gruesome take down.

The usual guns, grenades and environmental destruction make this game one of the best choices for 2017. A few exotic Nazi weapons are also featured to add to the action.

The game features Steamworks with achievements.
