Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus DLC will be launched just in time for holidays this year. This new DLC shows us everything we would like to see in a battle, being all about heroes. Resistance leaders will have to deal with PTSD, and many heroes will get crippled and injured. Hence, we need to prepare to part-take into some bloody battles.
The wounds that heroes cast remember us of the injuries war victims and veterans had to cope with, struggling to survive. At the beginning of the DLC, the protagonist of the game, BJ Blazkowicz wakes up from a coma and gets into a wheelchair while the Nazis attack their U-boat. He together with other members of the resistance used the U-boat as a shelter.

Despite his unstable condition, he pulls out the gun and starts shooting the Nazis. They seem to be relentless, physically capable and very well equipped for combat. Even when the fight becomes intense, BJ can only move in slow pulses when he pushes the wheelchair he’s in. The New Colossus DLC particularly focuses on the way bodies are developed and how they work when in combat.
Many members of the resistance, including BJ, have lasting injuries that carve their bodies. Furthermore, BJ has numerous cars from previous battles. BJ decides to turn himself over to Irene Engel, the Nazi General, trying to save Caroline, Fergus, and Max who are his comrades. Engel looks at BJ’s body and asks whether this is how a hero is supposed to look like.
In the real world, heroes bear scars, get injured or crippled and make do with what they have, doing their best to survive and kill as many enemies as possible.
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus shows players who are the real heroes and how much they need to struggle and how many sacrifices they need to make to defy the enemy. Losing some limbs or getting injured is not as hard as trying to stay sane and continue the battle.
