Bethesda has announced the release dates for their previously rumoured Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus DLC. And the good news is that we don’t have to wait long for number one, two or three.
The first of the extra content will be live and ready to download next month, aka December. The third and final instalment will release in March 2018. In addition to the three downloadable content packs, Season Pass holders will also gain access to Episode Zero, which until now had been a pre-order bonus.
In total the additional content will add over nine hours of extra gameplay to its original 15+ hour campaign. Episode Zero starts proceedings by introducing players to the characters they will control in the DLC packs. You are tasked with defending the American motherland from the Nazis’ clutches.
The Adventures of Gunslinger Joe will be the first adventure to hit our consoles. It will launch in one month on December 14th. Once again tongue in cheek, players will take control of Joseph Stallion. Anything but a three legged donkey, this former NFL quarterback is taking the fight to the enemy from the solid ground of Chicago to the gravity-less vastness of space.
The second, The Diaries of Agent Silent Death, goes live around six weeks later on January 30th, 2018. With a month or so granted to recover from the plight that is New Year, you will follow the antics of ex-OSS agent Jessica Valiant. This assassin is hungry for the truth, determined to uncover the secrets of Operation San Andreas from the culling fields of California.
The Amazing Deeds of Captain Wilkins will be the final addition. It is scheduled to release in March 2018. This pack focuses on an American hero, US Army Captain Gerald Wilkins, who deploys to the frozen battlefields of Alaska to stop the Nazi Operation Black Sun once and for all.
If you fancy grabbing yourself the Wolfenstein 2 Season Pass, it currently retails at $25 with Episode Zero currently available to play through.
Does Colossus live up to its name? Or is it more out of order than New Order?
