Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus lets players experience a fully-featured version of Wolfenstein 3D within the game itself, although there’s a bit of an alternate history twist: You play as the bad guys.

In Wolfenstein 2, B.J. Blazkowicz and his fellow Kreisau Circle resistance fighters have set up base in a captured Nazi U-Boat. They’ve filled it with all the comforts of home: art, music, alcohol and yup — games.

In Club Kreisau, players will find a functioning arcade cabinet for a game called Wolfstone 3D. The game is looks and feels just like Wolfenstein 3D, but with some notable differences. Instead of hunting Nazis, you’re fighting Kreisau “terrorists.” Rather than portraits of the führer, walls are decorated with the Reich’s most wanted criminal, B.J. Blazkowicz.

This isn’t the first time MachineGames has given players a flashback to Wolfenstein 3D. Wolfenstein: The New Order featured hidden “nightmare” levels, where B.J. would find himself in labyrinthine areas rendered in the low-res sprite style of the classic shooter.

Wolfstone 3D has six full levels, and it even has a save game system. We’re not sure what lies at the end of the twisted tribute to Wolfenstein 3D, but intrepid players will have a chance to find out when Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus launches on Oct. 27.
