Yesterday we learned all about strawberry milkshakes in Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. Today news completely unrelated to frozen dairy beverages was released for the upcoming FPS. Here are the details of its season pass as well as the pre-order bonus consumers will receive for purchasing the title at launch.
The season pass provides three doses of a type of expansion TA gamers hold in high esteem: story DLC. Called "The Freedom Chronicles," each one will tell a story about a different hero's endeavors. Available at US$24.99 / £17.99 / AU$34.95, here's a sneak peak of what each episode will offer:
- The Adventures of Gunslinger Joe – As former professional quarterback Joseph Stallion, smash through Nazi hordes from the ruins of Chicago to the vastness of space!
- The Diaries of Agent Silent Death – As ex-OSS agent and assassin Jessica Valiant, infiltrate Nazi bunkers in California and discover the secrets of Operation San Andreas!
- The Amazing Deeds of Captain Wilkins – As the US Army’s renowned hero Captain Gerald Wilkins, embark on a mission to Nazi-controlled Alaska to dismantle Operation Black Sun!
To begin the story of "The Freedom Chronicles," gamers who preorder will also get to catch "The Freedom Chronicles: Episode Zero" as a reward for opting to buy the title early. The episode will also be available in the season pass for those who later choose to buy the pass but did not pre-order the game at launch.
Episode Zero introduces you to Joseph Stallion, Jessica Valiant and Gerald Wilkins as they fight for freedom in the American Territories. Blast your way through Nazis using unique abilities and an arsenal of guns in this opening DLC mission.Exclusive to North America, also announced was a two-pack of the Wolfenstein: The New Order and Wolfenstein: The Old Blood for US$29.99. The pack also includes a $10 mail-in rebate for gamers who purchase the double pack and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus when it releases later this year.
The double pack will be available in North America starting August 22nd. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus launches on October 27th.
