Wolfenstein 2 developers reveal tense Nazi encounter with a strawberry milkshake
It seems some Nazis really like strawberry milkshakes.
That's the takeaway from the latest gameplay trailer of Wolfenstein 2, the follow-up to 2014's reboot of the beloved gaming franchise.
Opening with an action-packed shooting montage, the gameplay trailer quickly cuts to a scene inside a peaceful Roswell, New Mexico diner, in a Nazi-occupied 1960s USA.
A mother and child ordering in the diner are interrupted when a Nazi Kommandant walks in.
Sipping on a strawberry milkshake - "I love strawberry milkshake, it is perhaps my favourite American thing!" - he quickly turns his attention to the main character, BJ Blazkowicz, asking him to show identification papers.
The tense encounter then ramps up, as the Kommandant starts to interrogate the main character about where he works.
A call over the radio disrupts the shake-sipping Nazi, before he spots a wanted poster with the face of the main character plastered across it.
Cut to black as weapons are drawn and the trailer is over.
Stuff praised 2014's Wolfenstein: The New Order as a "character-driven work of art".
Its standalone DLC Wolfenstein: The Old Blood was praised too, for breathing new blood into the first game.
If the latest gameplay reveal is anything to go by, the sequel is shaping up to be more of the same - but when more of the same is tight shooting, milkshakes and Nazis, that's probably a good thing.
Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is due out on October 27, 2017 in New Zealand.
