Are you ready for the Weird World War – Ripstone Games and developer Auroch Digital have released the first gameplay video of their occult, turn-based strategy game Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics. In the video, Design Director Tomas Rawlings walks players through the opening mission of the game, detailing the mechanics, gameplay and background lore, to show how Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics offers players a unique spin on the WWII turn-based strategy genre.
In this mission, Mademoiselle Dubois and Corporal Singh must make their way behind enemy lines, then move through the deadly forest, crawling with Nazi enemies, in order to get to their rendez-vous point with other members of Charlie Company – Captain Harris and Sergeant Carter.
Launching for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch in 2018, Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics is based on the wildly successful tabletop RPG from Modiphius Entertainment. The game is set in an alternate history of World War II, where the Nazis’ investigations into the occult have resulted in the summoning of Lovecraftian monsters at their side, that could enable them to destroy the allied forces. Players take control of Charlie Company, an elite band of allied forces, sent in to do the impossible; foil the Nazi plans and turn the tide of war.
