Bethesda announced in July that Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus would receive three story expansions after launch, and the first of those three has arrived. The Adventures of Gunslinger Joe is out now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and it sounds as weird as you’d expect.
It has you play as Joseph Stallion, a former professional quarterback forced to play soccer by the Nazis. Bethesda says you can use the character’s Ram Shackle ability to “smash through hordes of Nazi soldiers from the ruins of Chicago to the vastness of space!” The expansion weighs in at around 4 GB and will set you back $10 / £8 / AU $15. It’s also available as part of Wolfenstein II’s Freedom Chronicles season pass, which costs $25 / £18 / AU $35 and also includes a previously released bonus chapter called Episode Zero.
Two more expansions are planned for Wolfenstein II. The first of those, The Diaries of Agent Silent Death, will see you “infiltrate Nazi bunkers in California and discover the secrets of Operation San Andreas” as ex-OSS agent Jessica Valiant. The final DLC pack, meanwhile, is titled The Amazing Deeds of Captain Wilkins, and it will task you with dismantling a Nazi operation in Alaska.
We enjoyed the main campaign here at GameSpot. “The New Colossus never lets you forget who and why you’re fighting,” wrote critic Kallie Plagge. “Nazi brutality is on full display, from the blown-out, irradiated remains of Manhattan to each of the resistance members, who all carry mental scars if not physical ones. You’re never given a chance between cutscenes, missions, and even downtime on the U-boat to lose sight of the Reich’s cruelty. Wolfenstein’s tense gameplay elevates this further by giving you the power to truly resist–and come out of each battle ready for another fight.” Read more in our full Wolfenstein II review, or check out why we named it one of the five best Xbox One games of 2017.
