WWII Tactical RPG Broken Lines Story Trailer

SUPER.com have released a new trailer for their upcoming tactical RPG, Broken Lines.

The game is set in an alternate history version of WWII, and involves an Allied commando team getting stranded behind enemy lines. The latest trailer, as seen above, focuses on some of the choices the squad will need to make if they want to survive.

Here’s a rundown of the game from its Steam page:


Story
Your squad has crash-landed behind enemy lines, in the heart of an alternate history Eastern Europe. With no intel or leadership to support them, these soldiers must fight their way back home before the horrors of war break them. Teamwork and strategy are paramount…
Each soldier has their own personality and ideas on what needs to happen next. Some want to investigate what caused the crash that left them in hostile territory, while others want to lay low and wait for rescue. There are even whispers of desertion.
You are the “unseen hand” that guides this ragtag group of soldiers to safety and possible rescue. Whether it’s as simple a choice as to which way to go next, or something as serious as how to engage their mysterious foes, every decision you make is serious and significant.

Broken Lines is

  • Broken Lines combines a tactical RPG with story-driven gameplay. As your soldiers battle the mental strain of war, you’ll need to command them in combat— will they avoid the enemy, or go head to head with their foes?
  • Combat is similar to that of a turn-based tactical RPG, but soldiers move only when action phase starts. However, when new enemies and hazards appear, the game pauses to allow you to plan your reaction to this new change. Will you continue to charge forward, or back off and seek cover?
  • Choices you make will shape the story to your liking leading to a different campaign endings. Choose wisely as your progression through the game will affect not only soldiers you command but also a whole region and everyone who happen to live here. But you should also keep in mind that your soldiers have their own opinion on what is good for the squad so you have to maintain a balance between what you want them to do and what is good for keeping the squad in high spirits.

“Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may
be; for without victory, there is no survival.”
― Winston Churchill


Broken Lines launches Q1 2020 for Windows PC, Linux (both via Steam), and Nintendo Switch, and coming soon after to PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
