War Mongrels had a controversial release last year, which included a strong backlash in the German media, as well as a mixed reaction in Russia due to its historically accurate portrayal of the Eastern front of World War II. Nonetheless, players praised its gameplay, true to the classics of the RTT genre.

Now, the game receives a big update, which includes full controller support, major gameplay and AI improvements, over 500 tweaks and fixes, as well as a slew of technical optimizations.

About War Mongrels

Following a defection from the Third Reich, a group of disillusioned fugitives struggles to survive the brutal ordeals on the Eastern Front of World War II. As they sneak through the war-torn territory, they have to face an evil that challenges not only their values and ideals but all of humanity.

War Mongrels mixes dynamic, tactical elements, adventure, and stealth, tightly packing it all into a dark, fascinating story.

  • Guide the squad as they break from the Third Reich’s forces and get to know your companions. Each character has their own personality, background, and skills to use along the journey.
  • Use the interactive environment to your advantage, utilizing distraction tactics by whistling, playing music boxes, or throwing objects before progressing through enemy lines, guard barracks, prison blocks, as well as concentration camps and mass graves that stand as a testament to the horrific cost of war.
  • Catch soldiers unaware, ambushing them from the shadows with strategic flanks and an array of character skills or rush in guns blazing, utilizing twin-stick shooter controls as bullets fly across the battlefield.
  • Plan your attacks by pausing the action and issuing orders to each squad member, allowing for tactical assaults when the enemy least expects them.
  • Join forces with a friend in an online co-op mode.
