5 Thoughts We Had Playing Wolfenstein 2 The New Colossus

Did nazi that coming

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus continues the story of Wolfenstein: The New Order's B.J. Blazkowicz, this time taking the action to Nazi-occupied America. We are here to report our thoughts on this promising sequel after playing the opening mission in a video fresh from E3 2017.

To our relief, it seems Wolfenstein is still full of surprises. In the introductory level, B.J. wakes up from a coma, confined to a wheelchair on account of having lost the use of his legs.

Having spent months unconscious, B.J.'s health is capped at 40%, he's unable to climb stairs and, during certain sequences, he gets tipped out of his wheelchair and is barely able to move at all. For us, variety was key to Wolfenstein: The New Order's success, so it's encouraging to see that Wolfenstein 2 is set to follow suit.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is out on Xbox One, PS4 and PC on release date 27 October 2017.
