Forever Entertainment has revealed that it will be bringing the turn-based strategy thriller Phantom Doctrine to Nintendo Switch early next year.
Releasing on other platforms earlier this year, Phantom Doctrine is set at the peak of the Cold War, drawing on a wide variety of influences including classic spy films. The game thrusts the player into a mysterious world of covert operations, counterintelligence, conspiracy and paranoia, and as the leader of a secret organisation known only as The Cabal, you are charged with preventing a global conspiracy that seeks to pit every nation against one another.
You'll be carrying out secret missions, investigating classified files, and interrogating enemy agents, uncovering a sinister plot along the way. With the clock ticking, this plot must be thwarted "in order to save the world from an unthinkable fate". You can check out a handful of features and screenshots below (all taken from the Steam version of the game).
- A Deep Single Player Story Campaign: the 40+ hour Single player campaign mode features a rich gripping plot woven with numerous historical events and characters to bring the terrifying reality of the Cold War to life from a unique perspective.
- Next-generation turn-based combat: offers unprecedented flexibility of movement and actions, including variable Overwatch modes and assault-oriented Breach ability.
- Expanded battlefield: assets can be positioned around the world, enabling you to call for assistance in the heat of battle. But the enemy can also bring in reinforcements, including heavy weapons and even air support. Don’t bring a knife to a gunfight.
Forever Entertainment says that the game will arrive on Switch in the "first half of 2019", although further details are still to be shared.
