As the United States becomes enshrouded in the controversies of these tumultuous times, all some people want to do is fight Nazis again – a wish that Bethesda is only too happy to grant. The studio’s recent first-person shooter, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, received generally favorable reviews from critics when it launched this past October, and, despite widespread complaints over its frustrating technical issues, it does seem like the title will be regarded as one of the genre’s greats. (once it’s been appropriately patched, of course).
As for those many fans who felt that The New Colossus was just a little bit too short, there’s some good news: Bethesda today revealed additional details on the game’s upcoming DLC, the first of which is due in just over a month.
If you’re one of the players who pre-ordered the game, then you’re already likely familiar with the cast of The Freedom Chronicles. The three characters appeared first in Episode Zero, a DLC pack that arrived alongside the Season Pass, where they teamed up together to engage in one of America’s favorite pastimes: killing Nazis. Each character is now set to appear in their own mission packs, outlined below:
The Adventures of Gunslinger Joe
Due December 14
The first pack puts you in control of former professional quarterback, Joseph Stallion, as he battles his way through the ruins of Chicago and – in the crazy spirit traditional to the Wolfenstein series – eventually takes the fight to outer space.
The Diaries of Agent Silent Death
Due January 30
Jessica Valiant is an ex-OSS agent and assassin who is – quite understandably – unimpressed with the Nazis’ occupation of the U.S. Players controlling Valiant will be tasked with killing strategic Nazis in California and, eventually, thwarting Operation San Andreas.
The Amazing Deeds of Captain Wilkins
Due March 2018
Captain Gerald Wilkins was a hero in the US armed forces, and now he’s been issued one last mission: to journey to the Nazi-controlled region of Alaska, where he then must set to work on dismantling Operation Black Sun.
