The exclusive artwork from alternate box arts are featured our beloved hero B.J. Blazkowicz is some very different scenarios from the game. The first one among the four new covers is titled Collage, which is a gathering of allies around protagonist William Blazkowicz and what looms overhead is an entire gang from Nazi regime with their Frau Engel Frau Engel on top. Mayhem has B.J. raining down heavy fire upon enemy soldiers as he is backing in distance while vehicles are blowing up.

The third one is called Stealth, where Blazkowicz has just hacked a leg of an unsuspecting soldier from underneath a car or something, who probably came chasing him but lost his limbs instead. Next up, our hero is pouring down his heavy fire-powers against enemies down the street, which of course is the Tactical alternate cover. This one actually hints at an in-game cover system introduced in this title, which players can use during combat for tactical advantage.

Aside from releasing brand-new titles every now and then, Bethesda is bringing many of their popular titles for next gen console Nintendo Switch.

The trailer above shows exactly how you can expect your Wolfenstein II will play out in Switch and so far, it looks pretty flawless. The publisher previously launched another of their first-person shooter game Doom by working with Panic Button and it played out very well, except for some occasional struggle of keeping up the 720p resolution. Case of dropping frames per second below 30 was also reported but we believe the game could even run on this portable console is a wonder itself.

Just like id Software’s Doom, action-adventure first-person shooter Wolfenstein II runs on run on same engine and as Bethesda has cracked out the formula of perfectly porting games to Switch without any major issues, we shouldn't worry much about it except for how many days we still have to wait to get our hands on it. Whatever minor compromise made in terms of gameplay performance and visual for jumping to a new platform is still acceptable to us many for the sake of playing it.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus follows protagonist BJ Blazkowicz, who is back in business to fight the Nazi regime out of America to deliver freedom to his people. On top of that, Wolfenstein II port is a complete uncensored version this time as Nintendo is not forcing to sensor the game to make it more family-friendly but leave it as it is. Over the top Nazi-killing fest surrounded by great story has even won “Best Action Game” title for the game at The Game Awards last year.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Out Now

America needs saving right now from the Nazi forces that has taken over the great country of the brave and who else to do it better than BJ Blazkowicz? He is the last hope of bringing freedom to his people and the one who can overthrow the Nazi Empire by set another American Revolution in motion in one of the most awaited and anticipated sequel of the Wolfenstein series, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.

After the previous adventures, Kreisau Circle found Blazkowicz in a coma-induced state and retrieved him from there to revive. Now, Blazkowicz is back in his boots to jump into the heart of action against the hordes of Nazi enemies that has taken over his land for long. But enough is enough and now's BJ's time to roll with those machine guns against the enemy and re-liberate the United States of America to make it great again.

BJ's old nemesis, the sadistic Nazi commander Frau Engel is back to stop him from being victorious in his quest and her army of über soldiers are fully determined to make sure it happens. It's not just the soldiers that our brave hero has to deal with but there are big-ass Nazi war machines that will force to use all the fire-power of your arsenal like the rapid-fire grenade launcher or the Dieselkratwerk.

From a post-apocalyptic Manhattan to the lands of New Mexico, you will ride along with BJ in his mission for freedom. Several familiar faces like Anya, Caroline and Max Hass will show up as well as new characters to join our hero of liberty in his quest. Together they all will build a strong resistance against the Nazis.

Belonging to the action-adventure first-person shooter video game, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is already out now and it will be available to play on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One from now on, courtesy of Bethesda Softworks and Machine Games.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Launch Trailer

The return of the Wolfenstein franchise with the latest title Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus has kept fans and everyone else on their eager tippy toes since it had made its presence known at E3 2017. It's been a hot topic of discussion for gamers all around the world since then. Specially, hardcore action game lovers are speculating the game to become one of the best action titles of this year, when it will finally comes out.

Bethesda Softworks has recently dropped the launch trailer for The New Colossus and filled with some awesome action sequences, it is right below for you to check out right now.




Set in the alternate take of the history, the trailer opens with a host welcoming the audience to America's number one game show "German . . . or Else!". Then it cuts back to a distress message where leader of the American Resistance, Grace Walker invites her fellow Americans to join the rebellion against the Nazi forces who took over the U.S. by killing their countrymen as series protagonist William "B.J." Blazkowicz keeps slaughtering the Nazi enemies in a berserk mode.

It is probably not necessary at this point to retell you that in The New Colossus, Nazis have won World War II and America is under their rule. Yet, our hero Blazkowicz tirelessly takes down the members of the Ku Klux Klan as a member of the Resistance. Scenes of both Nazis killing American citizens like animals and the hero killing the enemies with guns and grenades will probably blow your mind, because it gives you a fair idea of how much raw violence you are about to get into in Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.

The trailer then ends on an interesting note when the audience in the room leaves their chair and stood chanting "Hail Hitler" with the entrance of an elderly Adolf Hitler wearing a robe and coughing. His face remained unseen though. We are already too close to the date when Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus will hit PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 27, 2017. The Nintendo Switch version will probably come out sometime in 2018.
