Tactical WWII RPG Warsaw has launched for PC via Steam, backed up by a launch trailer which shows its gameplay and characters.
Publisher Gaming Company and developer Pixelated Milk described Warsaw as: “A tactical, story-driven WWII RPG set during the titular Warsaw Uprising. Warsaw sees you lead the Polish underground resistance in their brave fight against the city’s Nazi oppressors in 1944. You must recruit, develop and manage your fighters as you take them into battle in an immersive urban warfare experience directly inspired by real events. 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 deaths having an impact upon their loved ones and the resistance’s overall morale.”
Warsaw’s producer at Gaming Company, Krzysztof Paplinski, said: “With Warsaw, we wanted to create a game that is both culturally significant and great to play, and we hope that we’ve delivered that. We took great care with our story and mechanics to provide the best possible experience for players and to ensure we do our history justice.”
The trailer shows off Warsaw’s turn-based gameplay, and Game Company added that it: “Focuses on the intense gameplay and highlights the real people at the heart of this powerful moment in Polish history, featuring stunning, hand-drawn artwork and animation.” Its 2 October launch coincides with the 75th anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising.
Game Company said that Warsaw: “Will arrive on consoles at a later date.” For more information, keep an eye on its website.
