Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics Is Now Available On the Playstation 4
The mighty Cthulhu comes to the Playstation 4 today via Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics. What’s this game all about? Check that out, plus my opinion of the game below.
Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics is out now for the Playstation 4. Here is how the game is described via the official press release:
“Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics 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. With supernatural beings by their side, the Nazis might just destroy the allied forces and irrevocably alter the course of history. To stop this from happening, 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.
Tactical Combat: direct a squad of allied heroes in innovative turn-based ground battles.
Momentum System: perform well in combat by racking up kills and executing critical hits to earn Momentum and turn the tide of battle in your favour.
Light vs Dark: harness the power of the light to expose and suppress the spawn of Cthulhu hiding in wait in the oppressive darkness
AP System: every decision is important and the Action Point System gives you the flexibility to put as much emphasis into heavy combat or nimble movement as you like.
Psychological System: witness too many horrors of war and watch as your unit’s sanity begins to unravel mid-fight.
Build Your Team: characters have unique skills that can be unlocked and levelled up in different ways, and weapons can be modified to give a variety of benefits. This lets you customise your squad to better vanquish Nazi scum.
Weird World War: explore the Lovecraft-meets-WW2 universe of Achtung! Cthulhu like never before with Mythos-inspired enemies and a story-driven campaign handcrafted by John Houlihan which ties directly into the pen and paper roleplaying game narrative.”
I think this game looks really good. Of course, I love tactical rpgs! The PS4 version should be excellent but I’m hoping to review the Switch one when it comes out. The game is coming to the Nintendo Switch soon!
