Mythic Games this week dropped more details on their upcoming game, Reichbusters: Projekt Vril. We learned a lot more about the gameplay and background for it!

Here's what Mythic Games had to say...

"Reichbusters: Projekt VrilΒ is a fast and furious game with lots of weird science, witty one-liners, and heroic moments set during World War II. It is late December 1944 and, on the face of it, history has unfolded as we know it, but that could be about to change.

The Nazis have discovered a source of "vril" that has been brought back to the Reich for study. Vril is a source of energy that can control all types of matter. It can destroy like lightning or replenish life, heal, or cure. It is used to rend through solid matter. Its light is said to be steadier, softer and healthier than that from any flammable material. It can also be used as a power source for animating mechanisms."

It sounds like a lot of different Weird World War dreams coming together into one awesome package.

The gameplay is also sounding fascinating with you working together in this entirely cooperative experience (a major plus). You will be preparing your equipment and then heading out to complete your missions against the vile Vrilmeisters.

An interesting touch to the gameplay is that it starts off as a stealthy infiltration as you try and sneak through their facilities to complete your objectives. You will then decide when you want to unleash hell and start going all guns blazing. This reminds me a lot of the way XCOM games plan out and if they can recreate that on the tabletop then I am all for that mounting tension and sudden frenzied action.

The game features a simple action system which is then supplemented by cards which can start adding to your repertoire, making you a killing machine or a stealthy badass. Each hero also comes with a number of feats which are unique to them and Heroics which allow you to really harness the action hero within each of your characters.

The miniature design for this game has won me over too. As a big fan of the likes of Wolfenstein, you can see the influences here and that's nothing if not for the betterment of the game's appeal.

They have also done some unique things with the design of their Vril-enhanced Germans as you'll see here.

I am very much looking forward to giving this a go when we get to Essen next week and hopefully learning more about the plans they have for the game.Β  I don't particularly need another big game filled with plastic figures but I could probably make an exception if the gameplay is tight enough to make me play it on a regular basis.

What do you think?
