The trailer opened up with a live action segment which showed an idealistic countryside. A little girl named Peggy was getting groceries for her mom. Along the way she finds some people in trouble, but by blowing on her whistle she calls a giant robot dog to push the car off them. Then the dog burns the car with its flamethrower breath. After this they begin to flip through various TV channels including an advertisement for a gameshow called "German... Or Else!" Welcome to the world of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.

Following that an extremely injured BJ manages to fall out of a hospital bed where he falls into Ana, who we see that she is having twins. We also learn that Frau Engel is still hunting BJ.

After that we see the world of Wolfenstein's 1961 America, which includes the Nazis and the KKK working together. BJ begins talking to various people as he tries to assemble a resistance force against them. Finally we cut to gameplay, which includes a ton of shooting. BJ being in a wheelchair doesn't stop him, as he pushes himself along and shoots at enemies. Nazis, KKK, robots, even a crocodile falls to his bullets. The trailer ends with the pregnant Ana stabbing a Nazi to death while another character drops acid and talks to a cartoon lizard.

In a press release after the trailer, some of the new gameplay elements have been revealed. BJ will be able to duel wield any gun, and any combination of guns as well. Not only this, but he can also upgrade the guns that he finds in his shooting adventures. We also learn that some of the choices you made in the first game will have consequences in this one: one of your partners will either be Fergus or Wyatt depending on which one survived in Wolfenstein: The New Order.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus has a release date of October 10th, 2017 and will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
