By Jove spiffing news what what! Modiphius announce Achtung Cthulhu Tactics for consoles!

Modiphius Entertainment are one of the industry leaders when it comes to roleplaying games and recently entered into the miniatures market with the release of Fallout: Wasteland Warfare.  But Modiphius also have a couple of other ranges of miniatures, Star Trek for example and a full IP based on their own product Achtung Cthulhu, a what if scenario that pits World War II units against Lovecraftian horrors!.

Now another avenue has arrived and Modiphius are branching out into the computer games market with the release of Achtung Cthulhu Tactics, a fast paced game that will not only be available on PC but is coming to consoles!

 

Today we’re delighted to announce that the long awaited Achtung! Cthulhu: Tactics videogame for PC, Xbox One and PS4 is nearly upon us, with the PC release now confirmed for 4th October with Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch to follow before the end of the year – you can check out the game and even wishlist it on Steam right now!
The Secret War goes Digital!
Based on our ENnnie award-winning Achtung! Cthulhu RPG, this XCOM-style turn based strategy game mixes Lovecraftain horror and WW2 tactics in an epic clash of brave Allied heroes and sinister Nazi villains, with a liberal sprinkling of eldritch horrors from the outer dark!
Play as formidable leader Captain Eric “Badger” Harris, brave resistance fighter Ariane Dubois, Mythos machine-gun-toting Sergeant Brandon Carter, or wielder of the fearsome black mist, Corporal Akhee “The Eye” Singh, as you take on the Nazis in the Forest of Fear during the Ardennes Campaign of 1944 and uncover a sinister conspiracy, which could not only decide the Battle of the Bulge, but turn the very tide of the war itself!
Want to see Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics in action? Well, makers Auroch Digital recently gave players a tantalising sneak peak of gameplay in a 10 minute commentary video with Design Director Tomas Rawlings walking players through the opening mission of the game, detailing its mechanics, gameplay and background lore.
We hope you’ll report for duty and sign up for Achtung! Cthulhu: Tactics – the newest chapter in the Secret War is about to begin!
