Prior to its official reveal during Bethesda’s E3 2017 press conference, Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus was shown as having several strange and unsettling television shows within its alternate history of a Nazi-occupied America in the 1960s era. Now, the aforementioned publisher and the developer MachineGames have teamed up to put out yet another bizarre trailer for the forthcoming first-person shooter featuring a fake live-action TV program called Blitzmensch.
As seen below in the latest trailer for Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, fans can get a look at Blitzmensch and its artistic styles taking cues from Adam West’s Batman, with the titular character and his partner Fräulein Fox fighting against what the Nazis consider to be threats – that is, “capitalism, communism, and degenerates.” After the faux TV show’s put on display, fans that stick around will also get a look at some gameplay of the protagonist B.J. Blazkowicz mowing down bad guys by using dual-wielded weaponry.
In addition to the Blitzmensch footage, Bethesda and MachineGames have also unveiled extended looks at several of the previously noted alternate history television programs within Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus. For instance, one video the publisher and developer released a while back focused on a Nazi sitcom called Trust in Brother, while another centered around a rather disturbing game show called German… Or Else!
Taking all of this into account, since Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus‘ marketing campaign is decidedly eccentric with a dash of dark humor, it looks as if fans should expect the game itself to be this way as well. After all, the game’s E3 2017 trailer alone had enough off-the-wall materials like time travel, gigantic Nazi robots, and even a cartoon chameleon created out of thin air from an LSD trip to make a case that Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus won’t be a standard first-person shooter.
Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is set to release on October 27, 2017 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
