There’s a new turn-based strategy game on the block, one that pits players against a variety of evil creatures controlled by the Nazis, all in aid of trying to save the world. Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics is its name and you can get involved with it right now on Xbox One.
Set in an alternate history of World War II, Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics tasks you with using cunning military tactics to outwit the Nazis. Unfortunately, their investigations into the occult have lead to the summoning of deadly Lovecraftian monsters, which provides a real chance for the Nazis to turn the tide of war. It’s down to Charlie Company – comprised of Captain Eric “Badger” Harris, Ariane Dubois, Corporal Akhee “The Eye” Singh, and Sergeant Brandon Carter – an elite band of allied forces with a couple of nifty supernatural powers, to achieve the impossible and foil the Nazi plans.
Each hero character possesses their own back-story, weapon specialisations and combat abilities to offer a much needed edge on the battlefield. You must utilise a mix of turn-based strategy and RPG mechanics as you embark on this harrowing campaign against the forces of evil. To do so, simply head on over to the Xbox Store, where Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics is available to buy at a cost of £19.99 for Xbox One. You can already grab the game on PS4, whilst a Nintendo Switch edition is coming soon.
