Plot[]

Like its predecessor, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus has two separate timelines, depending on which allythe player chooses to save in a flashback, either Fergus Reid or Probst Wyatt III. The two timelines play out roughly the same, with minor differences centering around the surviving ally.

The game begins immediately after the events of the first game: gravely wounded after his battle with Wilhelm "Deathshead" Strasse, American resistance fighter William "B.J." Blazkowicz is rescued from Deathshead's fortress by his allies in the Kreisau Circle before they destroy it with a nuclear warhead. Blazkowicz survives but falls into a coma, and spends the next five months fading in and out of consciousness aboard the Resistance's U-boat, Eva's Hammer. He fully awakens when Eva's Hammer is attacked by the Ausmerzer airship, commanded by the sadistic SS-Obergruppenfuhrer Irene Engel, with whom Blazkowicz has history with. While handicapped and wheelchair-bound by his injuries, Blazkowicz fights his way to his allies, including his pregnant lover Anya Oliwa. To rescue his captured allies, Fergus/Wyatt and the Kreisau Circle's leader Caroline Becker, Blazkowicz surrenders himself to Engel and is brought aboard the Ausmerzer.

After taunting the resistance, Engel tries forcing her daughter Sigrun (whom she abuses because of her weight and general lack of adherence to Nazi values) to decapitate Caroline, eventually doing it herself when Sigrun is unable to. Before Engel can kill Fergus/Wyatt, Sigrun betrays the Nazis and stops her mother (although the ally is maimed by Frau Engel), while Blazkowicz dons Caroline's armor suit, allowing him to fight more effectively. Blazkowicz frees Eva's Hammer from the Ausmerzer and escapes with Sigrun, Fergus/Wyatt, and Caroline's body. Aboard the U-Boat, Sigrun's guidance allows Blazkowicz to locate and kill the Nazis hidden aboard Eva's Hammer, who had sent the U-Boat's locations to Frau Engel.

Following Caroline's funeral, Fergus/Wyatt is made the new leader of the resistance. The Kreisau Circle agrees to follow Caroline's plan to liberate America as the first step in freeing the world from Nazi control.
