Last week, I had the chance to spend a few hours with Wolfenstein: The New Colossus. What I played were two widely different demos which left me excited to see just how far MachineGames can push the sequel beyond what was the already chaotic Wolfenstein: The New Order.
I’d read quite a bit about the first Wolfenstein: The New Colossus demo that was playable at E3. I already knew that it kicked off where the first game ended and B.J Blazkowicz was not only in a wheelchair, but had to fight his way through hordes of Nazis in this debilitated state.
Hearing about the demo and experiencing it for myself were two completely different things. Machine Games somehow perfectly re-created it’d be like to be dual-wielding machine guns whilst in a wheelchair. Getting around is an absolute nightmare (with limited movement) and shooting your guns will make you slide back ever so slightly. It’ll take much longer to rotate your character which means that death will come at you hard and fast.
