If you’re the pre-ordering type, the details are finally out! Bethesda has revealed that there will be four expansions in the Freedom Chronicles season pass, including three new playable heroes:
- The Adventures of Gunslinger Joe features Joseph Stallion. Once a professional quarterback, now a military tank that can easily smash through any line of defence the Nazis concoct, be it in Chicago or space. I don’t believe the “vastness of space” has been mentioned before, so it will be interesting to see if the space race is still on in the era of The New Colossus.
- The Diaries of Agent Silent Death features Jessica Valiant, a OSS (Office of Strategic Services) agent before the war was lost and now a talented assassin. She works mostly in San Andreas, California, discovering as many secrets as possible from the Nazis.
- The Amazing Deeds of Captain Wilkins centers around, as you might guess, Captain Gerald Wilkins, another former participant in the war. The player follows him to Alaska in order to “dismantle Operation Black Sun.” Apparently the Nazis are under the impression that blocking out the sun won’t kill the entire planet, including them.
The Freedom Chronicles season pass is $24.99 USD and will include Episode Zero, though Bethesda has yet to mention when the DLCs will be released. Nonetheless, you’ll meet all of these fine heroes in Episode Zero where they “fight for freedom in the American Territories” in an “opening DLC mission.” If your pre-order The New Colossus, Episode Zero will be included in your pack, but it seems the The Freedom Chronicles season pass is sold separately. If you want all four DLCs, you’ll have to get the season pass. Bethesda has not made clear if the DLCs will be sold separately.
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus will be released October 27, 2017, on the Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
