Now Playing: Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus - Launch Trailer

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

With its release approaching, Bethesda has debuted a launch trailer for Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. It's somewhat positioned as a recruitment ad, encouraging you to join up with the resistance fighting to take back control of the United States from Nazis.

Given the recent prominence of open Nazi support in the United States, the anti-Nazi nature of the game is suddenly very topical. Like previous marketing for the game, this new trailer doesn't shy away from highlighting that The New Colossus is all about killing Nazis (and, at one point, a KKK member). We also get to see one of the giant enemies you'll face off against.

More significantly, the trailer is punctuated with a brief moment where we see Adolf Hitler enter a room. Although the character has been referenced numerous times in Machinegames' previous Wolfenstein titles, he's never actually appeared in them.

Wolfenstein II launches for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 27. A Nintendo Switch version of The New Colossus has also been confirmed, but it won't release until next year.

Can't wait for this game. Killing Nazis never gets old. And don't shove your political ideals on me, don't care.

WOW! So they actually brought Hitler into the picture huh? This story should be an interesting one. It sure is like the complete opposite of what COD WWII is doing, and I applaud Bethesda for not going all politically correct just to appease the SJW crowd. Wolfenstein has had the same principle for so many years with the whole "what if Germany won and America lost" story. Why would they stray away from that just so they don't "offend everyone". I'm actually glad to see a game company that ISN'T a complete pussy that gives into leftist agendas.

@WWEKane1515: Yup and they make games where you destroy the right winger racists of an imaginary future. Too much Alt Reich trash these days feel emboldened since the head of Trump University came into office. (And no, I'm not a fan of Obama or Hillary.)

I have to say, this single player only looks pretty damn good! BUT......

No multiplayer since RTCW (which, by the way was an awesome multiplayer back in the day!) makes this a no purchase for me. For pete's sakes it's almost 2018...can't you throw-in a top-line multiplayer for us die-hard Wolfenstein fanatics???

@cygnus455: wolfenstein has never been a multiplayer franchise. it's had multiplayer, sure but its focus has never ever been with anything other than single player.

Why am I not surprised that Gamespot has Nazi sympathizing concern trolls on its boards?

That a bad name. It's Wolfenstein 6 or something. I forget, but there's definitely more than 2.

@usaoligarchy: Agreed. That's not to make light of the sacrifices the US, GB, Fra, Canada made as allies in Eu. Let's not pretend these countries didn't engage in combat with the Nazis. But Russia did the bulk of it.

America currently has a Nazi problem. I'm looking forward to kicking some Nazi ass in this game.

And I'm glad this is linear. Not everyone has time for a 100+ hour open world game.

@creepywelps: Yes we do. We have a problem with literal Nazis like Richard Spencer. And people who sympathize with Nazis like Trump and his degenerate alt-right White Nationalist voter base.

@bigfootpart2: Nah. The real nazis are all the SJW types who are always trying to censor peoples right to free speech.

And how is Trump a nazi? You do know that all of Trump's grandchildren are Jewish, right?

@bigfootpart2: So literally 0.1% of the country. The only people I see acting like Nazis are the far right and the far left. The extreme minority, that's all.

@creepywelps: A lot of them are. Look at the "very fine people" at Charlottesville. Many of Trumps followers are literal Nazis and Klansman. Or people who hold similar viewpoints to the Nazis and Klansman. Trump ran on White Nationalism.

@creepywelps:

Well, he's certainly popular with virtually every hate group in the country. KKK/Neo-Nazi, anti-immigration, anti-women's right, anti-gay/lesbian rights.

@beantownsean: That's not what I asked. I'm not sure you can classify anti immigration as a hate group anyways. The other groups listed are miniscule in size and are denounced by the large majority of the country.

Anyone who is generalizing every Trump voter as a Nazi is exhibiting fascist tendencies of their own.
