Broken Lines is a narrative-driven tactical RPG set in the darkest hours of WWII. And it’s available to play through right now on Xbox. 

Available to purchase and download, playable on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, Broken Lines from PortaPlay and Blowfish Studios is a new tactical RPG that whisks us off to the harsh battlefields of WWII. It’s here where players will get the opportunity to work their way across the war-torn terrain of eastern Europe, helping a group of British soldiers who have found themselves stranded behind enemy lines. 

Priced at £15.99 / $24.99, Broken Lines tasks you with taking charge of that group and helping them fight their way back home. Of course, it won’t be easy. 

It’ll only be by utilising teamwork and strategy in which success will be found in Broken Lines, as you weigh up various soldier personalities, bringing them together as one. You’ll be able to do this by making a host of decisions and choices – with each and every one of those shaping the narrative ahead – whilst a turn-based system will ensure that your soldiers are on point as combat situations arise. 

Key game features include:

  • Story-Driven Gameplay – As your soldiers battle the mental strain of war, you’ll need to command them in combat— will they avoid the enemy, or go head to head with their foes?
  • Unique Turn-Based System – Combat is similar to that of a turn-based tactical RPG. Plan your turn in pause mode and watch your soldiers move when action phase starts. However, when new enemies and hazards appear, the game pauses to allow you to plan your reaction to this new change. Will you continue to charge forward or back off and seek cover?
  • Choices Matter – Choices you make will shape the story to your liking leading to different campaign endings. Choose wisely as your progression through the game will affect not only soldiers you command but also a whole region and everyone who happens to live here. But you should also keep in mind that your soldiers have their own opinions on what is good for the squad so you have to maintain balance between what you want them to do and what is good for keeping the squad in high spirits.

Should you be up for a gritty take on WWII and reckon you have what it takes to help this squadron to safety, you’ll be able to grab a copy of Broken Lines from the Xbox Store for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. 

Keep an eye out for a review from us soon. 

Game Description:

Your squad has crash-landed behind enemy lines in the heart of an alternate history Eastern Europe. With no intel or leadership to support them, these soldiers must fight their way back home before the horrors of war break them. Teamwork and strategy are paramount… Each soldier has their own personality and ideas on what needs to happen next. Some want to investigate what caused the crash that left them in hostile territory, while others want to lay low and wait for rescue. There are even whispers of desertion. You are the “unseen hand” that guides this ragtag group of soldiers to safety and possible rescue. Whether it’s as simple a choice as to which way to go next, or something as serious as how to engage their mysterious foes, every decision you make is serious and significant.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
