Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics oozing onto consoles this month

Turn-based horror title Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics is coming home in short order. The PS4 and Xbox One editions will be arriving this month.


Starring a mix of turn-based gameplay and RPG elements, Achtung! Cthulhu Tactics looks to offer something new to a familiar theme. Early 20th century-era stuff mixed with writer Lovecraft’s particular brand of “Cthulhu” horror is noting new after all. Though Achtung shakes up the formula by actually placing the player into the shoes of a soldier on the front lines. Or actually, make that soldiers, with an ‘s’.

As you can see in that trailer, you’ll be battling Nazi’s in this one, as a team of crack commandos. Though that’s not all you’ll see on the front. Fitting with Cthulhu-horror too, the game will offer a “sanity system”. See too many otherworldly horrors, and your squad will start to lose it, even in the middle of a firefight.

Expect to see the game arriving on the Xbox One and PS4 at the tail end of this month, with a Switch version coming along some time thereafter. North America gets the game on PS4 on November 20th, while Europe gets its copy on November 21st. As for Xbox One owners, they’ll be able to play on November 23rd, everywhere. Achtung! There’s no firm date yet for that Switch edition.

Cthulhu Tactics will run you $24.99.
