    Where you play Wehrmacht soldiers becoming guerrilla fighters against Nazi forces.

    Not sure if this is actually Commandos-like or not (it certainly sounds like one), but gameplay will be revealed at 3D Realms' event on September 5-6.

    Just heard of this for the first time. Is this more Commandos/Desperados-y? Or more of an RTS cover shooter?

    I have a strong feeling that this will shit all over Commandos 4. Shouldn't be that hard, frankly.

    :decline: I expected the opposite from the creators of Hatred. Oh well, perhaps the endgame is different and it will let you join the German forces.

    Apparently, Black Mesa
    The mere concept is kind of edgy as fuck (despite extensive claims of the so-called Seydlitz-troops/officers archive records kinda prove that they weren't a thing, and they're the archives that admit the existence of the unpalatable Vlasovites) but I kinda doubt they're going for that angle, I don't expect we'll get Fritz Schmenkel The Game.

    Tonally they're probably going for Sven Hassel lite (but we can't shoot Allies so we're going to shoot those inhuman SS and those pesky Prussian officers), but again Hatred was shit bar the edgy premise so little hope for this one.

    But if you want pure Eastern Front memes there's CoH2. But I would not force my worst enemy to play CoH2.

    I just fail to see the point of having Wehrmacht soldiers go around killing fellow brothers-in-arms. Why not just make a game about Soviet/Yugoslav Partisans, or the French Resistance, or SOE if the antagonists are going to be Germans?

    This just reeks of edgy cowardice - you get to play as the Germans in WW2 BUT you're killing other Germans, so you're still the good guys!

    Bought it recently. It's CoH, but medieval. Campaign is ok.
