Insane Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus Launch Trailer Features Hitler, KKK and Robo-Nazis

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus’ marketing campaign is an absolute joy to watch unfold. Once Bethesda and MachineGames got clued into the idea it could wind up a certain demographic to the benefit of its own game, it’s been a nonstop barrage of Nazi-slaying antics and troll bait. Sadly this all comes to an end with Wolfenstein 2’s batshit crazy launch trailer, although the pain is eased somewhat in the knowledge that it’ll actually be in our hands soon, milkshake Nazi ‘n’ all.

Anyway, this launch trailer really is something else. From B.J.’s battle cry of “Come and fuckin’ get me you fascist Nazi pigs”, a spot of KKK-slaying to get the blood pumping, robo-Nazis to destroy, and even a glimpse of Hitler himself should you tune in right until the end.

Curiously, we’ve got the launch trailer for Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus yet we still don’t have the system requirements. That would ordinarily set alarm bells ringing, but Bethesda usually reveals its system specs quite close to launch. The cynic in me is perhaps wondering whether any lessons learned from The Evil Within 2’s launch (and its lack of Denuvo DRM) are playing into what may be a potential delay. That's total guesswork though, so don't put any stock in it.

Not long now - Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus launches on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 27th.

It can't get any better than this!

I noticed that they seem to focus much more on hip fire , dual wielding and glory kills. and less focus on CoD Aim down sight style. That's a great sign that the developers have decided to go more Doom's gunplay style this time. I love it.

The trouble with Bethesda is they have a reputation for dropping prices fast - just look at Dishonored 2. I bet Wolfenstein 2 is 50% off in the Winter Sale, less than a two-month wait.

Fingers crossed then! I surely hope so because I waited almost a year in order to get The New Order for 50%. Or maybe I waited for an even lower price. Not sure. On this one 50% should be enough for me if it performs like DOOM.

This game is running on the same engine as DOOM so if thats anything to go by you should be able to do even 4k with your 980ti :)

it was an example in order to show that you should be able to run this well if all goes as expected. I dont think you will have the slightest problem in 1080p.

I'm hoping it's well optimized, Doom set the benchmark, more games need to follow :)

Can you imagine if they actually got scared, that people were protesting against nazi killing??
I know what's scarier though - if someone actually complains about killing KKK members

I saw someone complaining on the Steam forums and saying "Can you imagine if there was a game where you killed communists?" Somehow they'd overlooked the hundreds of games about killing communists. Not that I am advocating that viewpoint, but it's not exactly an uncommon theme to take on any political extremists.

The worst part? Those kinds of threads were going on on the Steam forums for months before the games media got wind of it. Several months ago I saw a (fortunately now deleted) thread sincerely asking why we didn't get to play as the "good guys". Guy wasn't trolling either. He posted a bunch of Nazi sympathizer websites as "sources"
