In Wolfenstein: Youngblood, Sisters Sadistically Slaughter the SS

It’s the 1980s, and twin sisters Sophia and Jessica Blazkowicz aren’t used to war. They haven’t seen the horrors that their parents, B.J. and Anya, have lived with during the two decades since the Nazis won World War II. And B.J. is not exactly the most mentally healthy of people, though it’s hard to blame him. He sits completely silent for long stretches of time, clearly still wrestling with what he’s seen and experienced. B.J. and Anya have lovingly raised their daughters, and they’ve trained them well, too. So when Wolfenstein: Youngblood (out July 26) opens with B.J. going missing on a secret government trip to Nazi-occupied Paris, Soph and Jess take it upon themselves to go find their missing dad and bring them home.

Wolfenstein 2’s Talking is Better Than Its Robot-Dog Riding

Before I started playing Wolfenstein 2, I was told I would get to pilot a giant, mechanical, fire-breathing dog. As you might expect, that’s pretty much the main part I was looking forward to as I shot Nazis and charged through crumbling walls. But what I didn’t expect is that the sequel’s cutscenes would blow me away more than melting my enemies.

Picking up the top-notch storytelling and character development of the first game, the cutscenes I saw from Wolfenstein 2 were even more impressive. The way each scene was filmed and cut together made them feel more like clips from some new Netflix show than mere exposition in a videogame.

Everyone knows the Nazis lost World War II. But what Wolfenstein presupposes is: what if they didn’t? Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is set to release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 27, 2017. It continues the story of 2014’s Wolfenstein: The New Order, with hero B.J. Blazkowicz coming to America, where the vile Nazis have seized control. He teams up with a motley crew of resistance fighters in hopes of bringing the Nazi regime to its knees.

Back in Blazkowicz with Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus

In the demo I played on the PC version, Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus brings back the challenging, unadulterated shooter action of Wolfenstein: The New Order in a great-looking followup to Machine Games’ reboot. To be clear there isn’t a ton that’s radically different about it mechanically: BJ still sneaks around knifing Nazis in the back before grabbing two guns and blowing the rest away. But the two levels I played each have some distinctive qualities that made them feel different from the “original” in subtle but important ways.

Like the first game, Wolfenstein 2 plays its story of resisting technologically advanced Nazis pretty straight, with strong performances from its cast. BJ and his now-pregnant girlfriend Anya, grizzled science genius Set, and the rest of the resistance fighters left standing at the end of The New Order all give convincing dramatic performances during the cinematics I saw. At the same time, The New Colossus is self-aware enough to know when it’s being ridiculous – and fully embraces it.
