Hitler makes a cameo in Wolfenstein 2’s launch trailer

Wolfenstein 2 launch trailer

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus comes out next Friday October 27, and Bethesda have released a launch trailer in preparation. The video, which you can check out above, is pretty familiar, with a reasonably obvious focus on killing Nazis, but confirms that Wolfenstein will feature at least one all-too familiar face.

The new trailer shows off a lot of hardware – here’s all of Wolfenstein 2’s weapons explained.

The trailer is full of fairly standard Wolfenstein fare. There are Nazis to kill, a very angry looking BJ Blazowicz, and some impressive mech suits. The terrifying Panzerhunds also make their return, and now they breathe fire.

Other than that (and an unlucky Klansman), it’s full of high-paced gunplay, right up until the very end of the trailer. Shuffling awkwardly into what seems to be a TV studio is Hitler, coughing and spluttering in his dressing gown and slippers. It’s probably fair to say, given the very deliberate show of power from Frau Engel, returning from the first game, compared to the enfeebled Hitler, that while he features, he won’t be posing much of a threat to BJ himself.
