Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus Stands United

By Rebecca Smith, 1 year ago
During Wolfenstein: The New Order, BJ Blazkowicz had the support of the Kreisau Circle, a German resistance movement, by his side. In Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, the Kreisau Circle will be back, but when he returns to America he needs to rally a new resistance to help him in his home country too. Not only that, his relationship with Anya is changing; she's pregnant with twins and he's about to become a father.

Alongside Anya, BJ will be joined by other members of the Kreisau Circle like Set Roth, Max Hass and Bombate. Fergus and Wyatt also return and you'll have to pick which of the pair you want to accompany you throughout your mission. Both narrative and gameplay will be affected by your decision as each comes with a different signature weapon that creates different gameplay opportunities. Fergus will give you the Laserkraftwerk while Wyatt has the Dieselkraftwerk.

Among the new allies that BJ will meet is Horton, the leader of the New Orleans Resistance who doesn't trust centralised authority. Then there is Grace, the Manhattan-based leader of the Black Revolutionary Front who has been fighting the nazis on their own terms and doesn't take kindly to BJ's attempts to interfere. There will be others, of course, all of whom are promised to be "real characters".

It won't just be familiar friends that you'll encounter throughout the game: Frau Engel is also back and this time it's personal. She was also grievously injured in The New Order and her companion was killed. Now that she has been promoted to general, it isn't just her mission to take him out, it's also the sole focus of her personal vendetta.

You can see all of these characters in the developer interview below:

You'll get to meet all of the characters for yourself when The New Colossus is released on October 27th.
