The marketing for Bethesda’s Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus has been among the year’s absolute best. After finding itself in the peculiar position of having to defend its core tenet of “Fuck Nazis” in a world where white nationalists rally in the open, the game has steered aggressively into any and all online resistance. It’s final trailer ahead of release reaffirms its perfectly reasonable position with both a wink and clenched fist.
I mean, do I even need to go on? What a trailer. This, hot on the heels of an explosively popular social media sting that involved Nazi punching and the tagline “If you are a Nazi, GTFO” on Monday. Beautiful. Just beautiful.
I am ridiculously hype. ready to fuck up some Nazis and I hope they give the game’s marketing team all the awards.
