Today, Ripstone Games announced that it's teamed up with developer Auroch Digital to release the occult turn-based strategy game "Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics" in Q4 2018 on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. A Nintendo Switch version is coming later this year.
Many of you may recognize Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics because it's a famous tabletop game from Modiphius Entertainment. According to the company, Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics is set in an alternate World War II where the Nazis have gained a considerable advantage by summoning Lovecraftian monsters that enable them to destroy the Allies. Players take control of Charlie Company who must foil their plans and turn the tide of war! However, going up against Cthulhu and his minions is no easy task.
Nina Adams, Producer at Auroch Digital, issued the following statement alongside the reveal.
We loved Modiphius' pulp mash-up of World War II Nazis and the Cthulhu Mythos. It's an incredibly evocative and exciting alternate history which makes for a unique tabletop experience. We're taking that nigh-on faultless foundation and transporting it into the video game medium, via our favorite genre, the turn-based tactics game. With the genre experiencing something of a comeback in recent years, we feel Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics will... offer innovative gameplay possibilities.
Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics features a mix of turn-based strategy and role-playing mechanics. The campaign takes place all over the world and each hero has their own perks. For example, Captain Eric Harris uses experimental weaponry while Ariane Dubois can summon demons.
