I especially like the revamp of Iron Cross’ armor. A huge, hulking monolith seems more appropriate for the WWII genre, rather than the more Iron Man-ish looking armor from the comics.
More goodies after the jump, including Arnim Zola and pictures of Cap fighting these baddies (along with a special surprise at the end. Perhaps an unlockable costume?).
