On a now-deleted page from Amazon Germany’s website, the retailer lists the game for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, with an October 27 release date — the same leaked release dated as the still-unannounced Assassin’s Creed Origins. A collector’s edition will also apparently be available. The New Order took a unique approach to its special edition, omitting the game itself so that fans could pick it up after actually having a chance to play it first.
What’s interesting about the sequel is that it’s being billed as the second game in the series. The current Wolfenstein storyline actually has a few characters and story threads introduced in earlier games like 2009’s Wolfenstein, but MachineGames was able to breathe new life into the series with The New Order. In addition to a philosophical B.J. Blazkowicz and a dastardly lineup of Nazi villains to destroy, the game left the previous title’s fantastical elements behind in favor of science-fiction. A prequel game, The Old Blood, arrived in 2015.
The New Colossus was originally teased at last year’s Bethesda E3 event, with the game’s title visible on a DOS language screen very briefly. Voice actor Brian Bloom, who starred as Blazkowicz in The New Order, essentially confirmed the game’s existence a few months later.
If Bethesda’s past two E3 events are anything to go by, we’ll be in for an extended gameplay demonstration for Wolfenstein: The New Colossus tomorrow night. Will we return to the moon to fight Nazi robot dogs? Will we venture onto Nazi-occupied Saturn? Only (a little bit more) time will tell.
