Hitler And The KKK Star In The 'Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus' Launch Trailer

Forbes Lifestyle 11 months ago

Hitler makes his debut in the latest 'Wolfenstein 2' trailer.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is a game about the Nazis taking over America, so its marketing has been largely focused on punching Nazis.

In the game's launch trailer, however, the punching isn't limited to the Third Reich's stormtroopers. There's also at least one KKK guy cosplaying as a ghost. He doesn't last long.

The game doesn't come out until October 27th (or D-Day, as I've taken to calling it, given the sheer number of massive game releases that Tuesday) so the launch trailer is a bit early.

Here's to hoping Bethesda also sends out some review copies early this time. The strategy of withholding games like Prey and The Evil Within 2 until hours before launch doesn't seem to be working out all that well.

It's never too late to change, Bethesda. It's never too late to change a badly misguided policy.

Unless you're Hitler, of course. It's too late for Hitler.

Speaking of Hitler, if you watch closely, he does make a brief cameo in this trailer. I guess in this alternate timeline the Fuhrer survives the war, after all. He's only been alluded to in the past two games in the rebooted franchise.

Check it out:

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus lands on PS4, PC, Xbox One and, remarkably, the Nintendo Switch on October 27th.

P.S. I always want to type out Wolfenstein II: Shadow Of The Colossus. It's because of several things, but mostly because of the word 'Colossus.' The thing is, we also have Shadow of War out right now, and there's a remake of Shadow of the Colossus in the works. Combine all that with The New Colossus and it's a recipe for sheer and utter syntactical mayhem.
