Modiphius have teamed up with Kevin Wilson, the mind behind such games as Descent, Android, Cosmic Encounter and Arkham Horror to bring you the Achtung! Cthulhu: The Secret War Board Game in Winter 2015!
The original Achtung! Cthulhu is Modiphius’ premier role-playing game set in World War II as things get very weird indeed. They took the world to the realm of board games before with Shadows Over Normandie but they’re now taking it further with the help of Wilson…
“Europe is ablaze with the final conflicts of World War Two. As the Allies are caught unaware by a German assault in the misty Ardennes forests, the Black Sun unleashes mythos evil from ancient sites, hoping to overwhelm the Allies forces, whilst the Nachtwolfe attempt to power up a vast war machine that will bring about a 1000-year Reich. All the while the dreams of Cthulhu inspire cultists to rise up in preparation for his return!
As the heroes of Section M and Majestic, you must race across Europe on vital missions facing ancient terrors, recovering strange artefacts, and learning unspeakable knowledge to help defeat the forces of the Third Reich and the Cultists of the Old Gods. To aid the heroes’ desperate endeavours, the players must learn to command the powerful but over-extended Allied forces to help halt the tide of evil!”
The game is designed as a co-operative experience and it’s going to be awesome seeing how this develops over the coming months. We’ll make sure bring you more news on the game as we get it but this is some more awesome news for Weird World War fans and another feather in the already impressive cap of Modiphius.
Are you excited for this?
