Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is a first-person shooter developed by MachineGames and published by Bethesda. The game picks up right after the events in The New Order, and centers around returning protagonist BJ Blazkowicz igniting a revolution in the Nazi-ruled America with help from some new allies. The Freedom Chronicles DLC, the introductory part of which is included as a pre-order bonus, also allows you to play as other American freedom fighters. According to Bethesda, there’s new high-tech weaponry, improved dual wielding, and more brutal ways to take down your enemies.
