Publisher Super.com and developer PortaPlay released a new gameplay trailer for their upcoming tactical RPG Broken Lines. The video portrays the game’s narrative elements, showcasing character interactions and their effects on both the game world and the characters themselves: a squad of British soldiers who have crash-landed behind enemy lines in an alternate-history WWII.
Make hard choices for the brave souls set in an alternate-history version of World War II
Prepare for battles both in front and face the enemies within themselves as they bring their own attitudes, beliefs, and personal baggage to the battlefield. You must deal with these, and make the most of their combat skills, as you fight to bring them home.
This game will be playing on tactical combat grounds while focusing more on the character and story, offering a fresh approach to the unit control. As your soldiers battle the mental strain of war, you’ll need to command them in combat— will they avoid the enemy, or go head to head with their foes?
As the game progresses, you manage the squads to fight through the Eastern European battlefields on a desperate mission to get back home. As the soldiers make their way through the war-torn landscape, their experiences will continually shape their personalities and their relationships with each other, building a narrative that reveals the true impact of the horrors of war — and perhaps something more.
The game is coming to the front lines this coming 2020 for Nintendo Switch and Windows PC.
