Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus DLC Details Revealed: The Adventures of Gunslinger Joe Drops This December
There are three add-ons coming to Bethesda's Nazi-killing title Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, and the company has now revealed release dates for two of them.
The first one, The Adventures of Gunslinger Joe, will launch on Dec. 14. Then Bethesda will follow that up with The Diaries of Agent Silent Death on Jan. 30, 2018. There's still no specific release date for the third add-on, The Amazing Deeds of Captain Wilkins, only that Bethesda is planning to release it in March 2018.
All three DLCs make up the game's season pass, called The Freedom Chronicles, which costs $24.99. Players will be able to purchase the DLC packs individually should they wish to go that route, but Bethesda has yet to announce exact pricing for each.

Another DLC, called Episode Zero, has already been released for those who preordered the season pass. Bethesda calls it an "opening DLC mission" that introduces players to Joseph Stallion, Jessica Valiant, and Gerald Wilkins as they try to fight for freedom in the American territories. It includes "unique abilities" and an "arsenal of guns."
All three protagonists featured in each of the DLCs are all characters from a set of pulp novels in the Wolfenstein universe. Not only does the Season Pass lets players step into these characters' shoes, it also offers them a chance to learn the expanded lore behind how America came to be Nazi-controlled.
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus was released in Oct. 27 to mostly positive reviews. Polygon said it "balances a steady stream of suffering and hurt with exuberant humanity. It deals with our darkest impulses and our best, and plays them both up to a ridiculous degree," IGN called it "a fantastic single-player shooter," and Kotaku liked it for its "compelling setting, furious gun fights, clever writing, lots of Nazis to punch."
However, some gamers, particularly those on the alt-right, have not been happy with the way Bethesda has marketed the game as a proudly anti-Nazi title. Still, the company has relentlessly continued with its spate of anti-Nazi promotional material. One Twitter campaign even encouraged players to punch Nazis in the face, which was met with both applause and criticism.
