Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus sends players to Nazi-controlled America on a mission to recruit the boldest resistance leaders left. The game is the direct sequel to the 2014 hit Wolfenstein: The New Order and continues its story.

Players fight the Nazis in iconic locations such as small-town Roswell, New Mexico, the flooded streets of New Orleans, and a post-nuclear Manhattan.

Players are able to equip an arsenal of weapons, and unleash new abilities to blast their way through legions of advanced Nazi soldiers, cyborgs, and über soldiers.

This comment has been removed. Is the Steam overlay issue related to Vulkan or just an oversight?

This comment has been removed. Bethesda is aware of the issue, so I assume they are looking into it. The overlay was disabled at launch but could be re-enabled with a launch parameter.

The overlay was then re-enabled by default with the patch that was released last weekend, but some of the crash issues are still there.

DOOM used Vulkan when enabled and it worked just fine there.
