Season passes: they aren’t just for gun skins and multiplayer maps. Wolfenstein 2: The New Collosus is getting one, like every other game that isn’t Titanfall. It will feature four separate single-player campaigns, having you play as three totally new characters, one of which will be available for free with all pre-orders. They’re called The Freedom Chronicles and will arrive some time after launch.
Here’s what Ben thought of Wolfenstein 2’s power suit and weapons.
Here’s the breakdown of what you’ll get for £17.99 / $24.99 (US price unconfirmed but assumed based on past Bethesda sales – we’ll get it checked as soon as possible):
- The Adventures of Gunslinger Joe – a former quarterback named Joseph Stallion (yup) goes through Chicago and eventually into space. He’ll kill Nazis along the way.
- The Diaries of Agent Silent Death – Jessica Valiant sneaks into bunkers in California to investigate Operation San Andreas. She’ll snipe Nazis along the way.
- The Amazing Deeds of Captain Wilkins – A war hero, Gerald Wilkins, heads off to Alaska to stop something called Operation Black Sun. Nazis will be shot along the way.
- Episode Zero – This is a prequel chapter featuring all three of the characters from the other parts, due to be released first and available for anyone that pre-orders, not just in the season pass.
Exact release dates and lengths haven’t been confirmed, though that information is “soon” according to the press release. Episode Zero may even arrive alongside the main game, or very shortly afterwards. There is this rather nice bit of art though:
Obviously, we wouldn’t recommend picking anything up with as few details as this. However, Machine Games are pretty good at what they do and previous games have always been value for money. Assuming there’s a good few hours in each of these DLC packs – which we’d expect will be sold separately in the £7-10 range, but again, no confirmation so far – it sounds pretty good. Wait for more info, but just like with the main game, we’re excited.
