First gameplay video of Wolfenstein II on Nintendo Switch

During the PAX East conference in Boston, USA, Bethesda and Panic Button studios showcased the Nintendo Switch version of Wolfenstein II, as shown in this video of GameXPlain:

The gameplay and the rendering look great, and the amazing work of Panic Button on Doom can give us some really high hopes about the quality of this version. They had to reduce the resolution and cap the game to 30 FPS, but it is still very impressive for this handheld console.

Note that the game will use the same Motion Aiming system than in Doom, using the gyroscope of the console, as confirmed by Bethesda:

The third DLC of Wolfenstein 2 is available

The third and last DLC of Wolfenstein 2, named “The Deeds of Captain Wilkins”, is now available, as announced by Bethesda:

Your mission to liberate America from the Nazis has only just begun. Continue the fight in The Deeds of Captain Wilkins, the third in a series of three DLC packs available as part of the Wolfenstein® II: The Freedom Chronicles.

Gun down Nazi enemies as US Army Captain Gerald Wilkins! On the run since the Nazi war machine leveled Manhattan with an atom bomb, Wilkins returns home to reunite with an old comrade and dismantle the deadliest weapon ever made: the Sun Gun. Grab your guns and deploy the Battlewalker to gain tactical advantage as you infiltrate Alaska’s Nazi-fortified Kodiak Island and crush Operation Black Sun.

The second DLC of Wolfenstein 2 is out!

Bethesda has released Tuesday the second DLC of Wolfenstein 2, called “The Diaries of Agent Silent Death”:

You’ve blasted and rammed your way through the Nazi ranks as BJ Blazkowicz and Gunslinger Joe, now it’s time for a stealthier (though no less lethal) approach. In “The Diaries of Agent Silent Death” you’ll fight to unravel a sinister plot in the California offices of the Nazi propaganda film studio, Paragon Pictures. As former OSS agent and assassin Jessica Valiant (AKA Agent Silent Death), you’ll stalk, shoot and stab your enemies from the shadows.

The Diaries of Agent Silent Death is the second installment in the Freedom Chronicles, a series of three DLC packs. All three packs feature a unique hero and are available as part of the Freedom Chronicles Season Pass, which you can pick up for $24.99 (US) / £17.99 (UK) / $34.95 (AUS) / €24.99 (EUR).

A free update is also available now, and includes the following:

  • Various optimizations and bug fixes
  • Updated difficulty balancing
  • More prominent damage direction indicators
  • Preparation for Episode 2 of Freedom Chronicles for users with entitlements

The studio is very happy of this expected announcement:

There is no release date yet for the game on that console.

Wolfenstein II: First DLC available

The Freedom Chronicles’ first episode, “The Adventures of Gunslinger Joe,” is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Follow him from the devastated ruins of Chicago to the vastness of space in the first in a series of three DLC packs, each starring a unique hero. Gunslinger Joe’s tale is available as part of the Freedom Chronicles Season Pass, which you can pick up for $24.99 (US) / £17.99 (UK) / $34.95 (AUS) / €24.99 (EUR).
