Bethesda and MachineGames offered up some new details on the Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus season pass, giving gamers an idea of what to expect from the game and the DLC that will follow its initial release on October 27th for the Xbox One, PS4 and on Steam for PC.
IGN reported on the new season pass content, detailing what gamers will receive for paying a bit extra for the downloadable content scheduled to release after Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus rolls out on store shelves and digital distribution outlets for home console and PC. The season pass will be $29.99 and sold separately from the base game, which will be $59.99. A release date for the season pass hasn't been announced just yet.
The pack will contain three separate and distinct story missions for the upcoming Wolfenstein game, including The Adventures of Gunslinger Joe, which centers around players donning the role of a former professional football quarterback named Joseph Stallion. Stallion ends up battling against the Nazis both on Earth and in space.
The second adventure is called Diaries of Agent Silent Death. This story puts players in the role of an ex-OSS agent named Jessica Valiant. She's an expert assassin who's well trained in espionage and must travel to California and infiltrate a secret operations base working on project San Andreas. Obviously, this mission pack sounds like a more stealth-oriented affair, not unlike Wolfenstein: The Old Blood.
The final pack of the three is called The Amazing Deeds of Captain Wilkins. This mission puts players in the role of Captain Gerald Wilkins as he embarks on a dangerous adventure through the Alaskan tundra while facing off against Nazis along the way in order to take down Operation Black Sun. The image for the mission makes it seem like it might be a throwback to the original Wolfenstein on PC.
Additionally, IGN mentions that for those who pre-order Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, they will automatically receive access to the Freedom Chronicles: Episode Zero mission, which allows you to play as three new characters in a separate mission that works as a prologue for the season pass content.
Some people are a bit torn in the comment section, with one group wanting to support Bethesda and MachineGames so they can get more content like Wolfenstein, and others claiming that announcing season pass details before a game is even out -- and pricing it at $30 -- seems a bit like overkill.
Most people agree that Wolfenstein: New Order was a good game, and they enjoyed it when it came out for the Xbox One and PS4 earlier in the generation. The follow-up standalone, Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, was another one that received quite the ovation from gamers. Although, some didn't quite like the focus on stealth mechanics in The Old Blood all that much. It appears MachineGames will use the season pass to juggle between the kind of content gamers can expect from the overall product, including the DLC.
You can look for Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus to launch for PC, PS4 and Xbox One starting October 27th.
