Wolfenstein 2 Takes Place in America – Story Shown Off
Wolfenstein 2 takes the battle away from Europe and brings it to America. However, everything looks a little different. Taking place directly after The New Order, The New Colossus shows an America overrun by Nazi control.
Creative director Jens Matthies had some thoughts on this premise:
“I think what’s interesting in America as a setting is that it’s a country very much founded on the idea of freedom. So to have that be under totalitarian control, it’s a very interesting juxtaposition.”
“The New Colossus takes place in 1961, but it’s not like the 1960s that we have in the real world. Technology has advanced at an incredible rate meaning that primarily the Nazis, but also the Resistance, have access to technology that is basically futuristic.”
According to the behind the scenes interview (below), the development team is going to take some risks with the story, and that’s exciting.
Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus will arrive on October 27, 2017.
