Independent video game publisher Gaming Company and developer Pixelated Milk have announced that WARSAW, a tactical WWII RPG set during the titular Warsaw Uprising in 1944, will launch on September 4th for PC via Steam.
WARSAW sees you lead the Polish underground resistance in their brave fight against the city’s Nazi oppressors. Recruit, develop and manage your fighters as you take them into battle in an immersive urban warfare experience. Encounter patrols, aid citizens and make tough decisions that will affect the resistance’s fortunes permanently. In WARSAW, death is permanent, with fighters killed in battle being lost forever, their death’s having an impact upon their loved ones and the resistance’s overall morale.
A blend of RPG and strategy, WARSAW requires careful resource, equipment, and team management as ammo, supplies, and people are finite resources. Acting as your base of operations, the resistance hideout will allow players to customise each member’s abilities and weapons within a deep and interlocking combat system that encourages experimentation and cooperation.
Players will need to leave the safety of their hideout to liberate each of the city’s multiple zones. Scout the streets, collect resources, recruit new members and engage with enemy assailants. An intricate turn-based combat system will mean flanking, cover, positioning, weapon range, and ammo consumption all need to be taken into account during firefights.
With a beautiful-hand painted art style WARSAW’s character, enemy and environment design is the product of months of research and consultation with historical experts to create fully accurate uniforms, weapons, city layouts down to the stylised font used in the UI.
