Wolfenstein II's nine hour DLC series has a pulp charm

MachineGames works their magic once again
By: Derek Strickland | Gaming News | Posted: 1 week ago

I absolutely adore MachineGames' marketing direction with its Wolfenstein games: the Liesel video and the Terror Billy collector's edition were both amazing. Now the studio one-ups their nostalgic charm with Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus' post-launch DLC roadmap.

Bethesda and MachineGames have revealed the Freedom Chronicles, a four-part post-launch campaign DLC series that takes players to the early alternate World War II timeline and introduces three absolutely awesome new characters: Joseph Stallion, Captain Wilkins, and the femme fatale Agent Silent Death. The Freedom Chronicles' marketing materials are straight out of an old pulp comic and tap that rich vein of peculiar Wolfenstein-y nostalgia we know and love.

 

The DLC promises nine hours of content to enjoy--and plenty of Nazis to annihilate in creative, unique ways (please let us throw a weaponized football at swastika-wearing malcontents!) as characters that only MachineGames could dream up.

 

"Episode Zero introduces you to Joseph Stallion, Jessica Valiant and Gerald Wilkins as they fight for freedom in the American Territories. Blast your way through Nazis using unique abilities and an arsenal of guns in this opening DLC mission."

 

The full Freedom Chronicles timeline can be found below, and will be available separately or part of the $24.99 season pass.
