The warm sun beats down on a main street in Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, just in time for the Victory Day parade. Uniformed SS march down swastika-filled streets to thunderous applause.

There are a ton of things to pick up in Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, ranging from postcards and vinyl albums to newspaper clippings.

The next Wolfenstein game, presumably subtitled New Colossus, as it was teased by publisher Bethesda in June, is a step closer to being officially announced.
