Publisher and developer Destructive Creations have delayed the PC (Steam, Epic Games Store) version of World War II real-time tactics game War Mongrels from its previously announced September release window to October 19. It will cost $44.99 / €37.99 and support English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Turkish, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese (Brazil), Russian, and Chinese (Simplified) subtitles at launch with English voice-overs.
PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One versions of War Mongrels are due out at a later date.
Here is an overview of the footage, via Destructive Creations:
This first extended look at gameplay places real-time tactics front-and-center as our main characters, two captured deserters of the German army, take their chance to flee once again and head away from the front.
Queue up actions in Planning Mode to create a sequence of commands and then fire off all the orders. Lurk in the shadows and distract the enemy with gunshots or improvised nearby scrap materials. Then perform quick executions and hide the bodies before anyone even notices the guerilla fighters’ presence.
Those less inclined towards covert tactics can go in guns blazing for intense fire fights against overwhelming odds. Each highly replayable, expansive level contains multiple routes and solutions, so try stealth, action-heavy, non-lethal, and even co-op runs.
Even the best-laid plans can go awry. Should enemies spot the squad, switch to a twin-stick Combat Mode and try to shoot your way out while AI directs teammates to follow the selected soldier. Survive each skirmish against the German army and find new troopers and friends along the way.
Witness World War II’s often-unexplored Eastern Front in a grim campaign about the atrocities of war. This bloody tale based on true stories unfolds with a level of graphical fidelity never-before-seen in the real-time tactics genre.
