WOLFENSTEIN II: THE NEW COLOSSUS Is the Craziest Trailer We’ve Seen at E3 (So Far)

When it comes to establishing the world of a game, we really admire the commitment of Bethesda. How many gaming companies would premiere their biggest E3 trailer with a hilariously bizarre live-action Lassie parody starring a young mountain girl and her ferocious mechanical dog? That sequence, and the taste of alternate world programming that followed, was just a way of inviting gamers back to Wolfenstein‘s vision of German-occupied America.

To close out Bethesda’s E3 press event, the company officially unveiled Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, the eagerly awaited follow up to Wolfenstein: The New Order. The subtitle of the new game comes from the famous sonnet by Emma Lazarus that lies at the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty. Wolfenstein’s hero, William “BJ” Blazkowicz recited The New Colossus as he lay dying in the closing moments of The New Order. But apparently BJ is back for more, and the world has only gotten crazier in his absence.

The reveal trailer for The New Colossus shows that BJ’s mission wasn’t the crippling blow to the Nazi regime that he hoped it was. To spark a second American Revolution, BJ is going to travel the country and recruit resistance leaders while taking on cyborgs and the new Nazi über soldiers. Along the way, several American iconic locations will be visited, including…Roswell, New Mexico.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus will hit Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 27.
