Tomas Rawlings (Design Director) plays through the opening mission of the game in this video, showing off mechanics, gameplay and discussing background lore to display the unique spin this takes on the WWII strategy genre. 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.
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.
