As part of PlayStation's E3 Live show, Wolfenstein developer MachineGames has revealed some new details about its upcoming game Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. The trippy-looking alternate-history shooter, revealed during Bethesda's E3 press conference, will move away from the previous game's linearity by emphasising three distinct playstyles: stealth, tactical, and mayhem. Over the course of the game, you'll find contraptions that tailor to each of these playstyles, unlocking new abilities such as a Battle Walker that lets you leap up to higher ground and use verticality to get the drop on enemies.

MachineGames also revealed that dual-wielding will be getting an upgrade in The New Colossus, with the ability to dual-wield any combination of weapons you like. For example, you could sneak around with a silenced pistol in one hand and a double-barrelled shotgun in the other, just in case things go sideways.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus will be coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 27.
