Introducing the continuation of the excellent shooter – Wolfenstein: The New Order at the presentation of Bethesda Softworks within the framework of the E3 2017 exhibition, MachineGames studio demonstrated excerpts from several cinematic inserts that alternate the gameplay of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. However, as it turns out, a lot still remains behind the scenes.
Wolfenstein is back | The New Colossus
In an interview with PCGamesN, the creative director of the project, Jens Matthies, admitted that this time the studio came up with a “super-super-ambitious” story with a whole crowd of characters. When Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus was created, Bethesda involved about a hundred (!) Actors, and the developers made about three hours (!) of cutscenes.
With all this, in the new story about Bj Blazkowicz, your main goal will still be the same – destroy all Nazis.
As developers from MachineGames tell in the new video diaries, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus can be passed in two ways – quietly-imperceptibly or openly-brutally. But the difference is not to avoid meeting with the enemy or to keep him alive. And how you deal with Fritzes – secretly, one by one or aggressively, creating a bloody massacre.
To achieve the goal, by the way, will help the ability to hold a weapon in each hand. In Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Blazkowicz mastered this skill perfectly, so he can hold long-range weapons in one hand, and in the other -close-range. Or, for example, take a pair of shotguns.
New Allies of BJ | The New Colossus
The MachineGames team is convinced that no matter how strong BJ Blazkowitcz, even he needs loyal comrades, without whom it is impossible to single-handedly defeat an entire army of Nazis who have captured almost the whole world.
As creative director of MachineGames Jens Matthies tells, in Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, the barely alive Blazkovitcz returns to his homeland, accompanied by all the German rebels from the Krazau Circle. So you can look forward to meeting with Seth Roth, Max Hass, and Bombat.
Moreover, you again have to choose between Fergus and Wyatt. And this time this choice will affect not only the course of the narrative. The company of Fergus will provide you with a cannon “LaserKraftwerk”, while together with Wyatt you will get “DieselKraftwerk”.
Of course, Anya, who is pregnant with twins, also moved to America with BJ. It is the future of his children, the prospect that they will grow up in the world of the Nazis, now worries our hero the most. To clear the country of enemies, it is necessary first to raise the people to revolt.
In the course of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, you will visit various corners of America on the submarine “Eva’s Hammer” and get acquainted with a whole new set of characters, local revolutionaries with their characters. The leader of the rebels of New Orleans, Horton, for example, despises a centralized control system, and Grace of Manhattan, heading the Black Revolutionary Front, “prefers to fight the Nazis in its own way.” And you will also meet a little naughty fellow named Superchudil (and that says it all).
Gameplay of the Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus
The first video show first twenty minutes of the game, of which you have probably already read or heard from reviews of various publications. It is here that we meet the half-dead main character of the Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, who can not even walk properly. But Bj Blazkowicz was not in vain nicknamed the Creepy Billy, even in the wheelchair he is extremely dangerous.
In the second and third fragments, MachineGames demonstrates shots from the chapter in the town of Roswell (New Mexico). Since this place has long been famous for the fact that there was a crash of an unidentified flying object in 1947, it is certainly possible to mention aliens. As well as intense shooting and spectacular battle with the Citadel’s boss.
Recall that Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus will go on sale on the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One from October 27.
