A little over two years have gone by since Strategic Mind: Spectre of Communism released on PC. Now you can play that same game on Xbox and PlayStation.
Strategic Mind: Spectre of Communism allows you the chance to take charge of ground, air and naval forces, as battles play out on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. Focusing on the alternate story of the Red Army after the events of World War II, it’ll be the Commander role in which you find yourself, left to lead your nation through the depths of the Cold War.
It’s here where immersion should hit, as you take in a storyline that straddles time and the spectre of communism. Strategic Mind: Spectre of Communism follows on in the Strategic Mind series, and whilst our full review is fast approaching, we’re hoping that Klabater have been able to create a largely better gaming experience on console as to what we took in with Strategic Mind: The Pacific and Strategic Mind: Fight for Freedom. We dropped 1.5/5 and 1/5 reviews onto those games, mostly disappointed with how the port to console worked – they were poorly executed with horrid controls. Here’s hoping that Strategic Mind: Spectre of Communism has more about it.
The press blurb speaks of engaging gameplay mechanics, 3D visuals and a rich, highly detailed world. For that, we are excited.
“We’re glad to publish another game on consoles. Our publishing portfolio is very diverse – on one end we have strategies, on the other, roguelikes, RPGs, or simulators. We port games with positive user scores and established communities. It allows us to encourage console players to grab already reviewed and proven games.” – says Robert Wesołowski, CEO of Klabater. “Extending our back catalog is one of our goals for this year. Long-term cooperation with developers and publishers such as Starni Games or Goblinz Publishing helps us achieve it. I am expecting to sign more publishing contracts for porting, still this year.” – adds Robert Wesołowski.

Strategic Mind: Spectre of Communism is a (hi)story-driven turn-based strategy set in the WW2 period. It offers refined wargame mechanics, story-rich gameplay, and modern 3D graphics. Lead the USSR Armed forces staging the world Communist revolution. For Stalin! For the Motherland! The game has many historical operations and events but also features a number of alternate history moments. It is created with great care and attention to historical details by a team which is passionate about WW2 history. Watching cinematics before and after every operation you can almost feel that you are indeed a participant of the unfolding epochal events. Moreover, numerous primary and secondary objectives allow you to explore every battle in detail. The gameplay is plot-driven and features many historical personalities such as Joseph Stalin, Georgy Zhukov, Vyacheslav Molotov, Kliment Voroshilov, Lavrentiy Beria, Aleksandr Vasilevsky, Konstantin Rokossovsky and others. Strategic Mind: Spectre of Communism is the third installment in the Strategic Mind line of games. The first one – “Strategic Mind: The Pacific” – was about naval warfare during the Pacific War, while the second one – “Strategic Mind: Blitzkrieg” – was telling the story of the European theater from the German perspective. It is high time “Strategic Mind: Spectre of Communism” tells the USSR story in WW2, a story filled with valiant hearts and vile betrayals. As a part of the Strategic Mind franchise, it will retain many features of the series along with adding new content and features to the existing variety.
