Wolfenstein 2 New Colossus Offers Free Demo on PC, PS4, Xbox One

Barely a month after launch, Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is already offering a free demo on all platforms. You can try out the first level of the game, and get an idea of whether or not you like it. If you do like it, you can get it at 50% discount on pretty much every single digital gaming store. I assume this is because Wolfenstein 2 has probably been having trouble attracting an audience, being released among Mario, Assassin’s Creed, Call of Duty, and Battlefront. I hope I’m wrong, and that it’s doing great.

Poor Wolfenstein 2. It’s gotta suck when you’re sandwiched between a new Mario game and a new Assassin’s Creed, with CoD and Battlefront 2 on the way (before we knew the disaster it would be). As a result of its somewhat unfortunate release date, it’s already getting discounted left and right, barely a month after launch. If you’ve been eyeing Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, but weren’t sure if it’d be up your alley, now’s an excellent moment to try it out. The game now offers a free-trial demo on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. If you do like it, you can then pick the game up at a 50% discount in pretty much every digital store that sells it.

Despite kinda getting buried by the hype of bigger releases, Wolfenstein 2 is a pretty good story-driven FPS. It picks up right where the previous game, The New Order, left off. Nazi Germany has taken over the United States. Resistance hero B.J. Blazkowicz, presumed dead, has managed to survive the events from The New Order. Now, he has to connect with the resistance on American soil, and do what he does best – blast Nazis to kingdom come. It’s over-the-top, cheesy, Tarantino-esque fun. If you’re on the prowl for a brutal and bloody, bust still self-aware FPS, give Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus a go.
