That's Bethesda's Pete Hines describing Machine Games follow-up to the excellent Wolfenstein: The New Order. And we're inclined to agree thanks to a sequence that involves a soldier dropping acid and then hallucinating that he has a tiny cartoon friend. Whilst a pregnant lady stabs a Nazi multiple times in the background. Yeah, this looks pretty damn awesome. And it's coming October 27.
There's so much packed into this 8 minute presentation of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus that it's hard to know where to begin. So we'll start with the beginning, which sets the scene via a few impressive old timey TV shows by the way of an alternate universe where Nazi's control the airwaves.
From there we get a look at a number of in-game sequences with details on the expected story. And plenty of action.
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.
The game is also being built on id Tech 6, so expect it to look every bit as good as this when it launches later this year.
