Möbius Front ’83 Gets New Multiplayer Mode, Playable Soviets

Möbius Front '83

Zachtronics have released a new update for alternate history Cold War era turn-based tactics game Möbius Front ’83, adding multuplayer and the Soviets.

The update adds a new skirmish multiplayer mode that allows you to play one-off missions against the AI and other players online. This new multiplayer component is accompanied by the addition of a playable Soviet faction; with over 20 new units, including the T-72 Ural and the BM-21 Grad. You can read more about the update here.

You can find the rundown (via Steam) below:

The year is 1983 and the United States of America must defend itself from an enemy it could have never imagined— an America from an alternate universe that will stop at nothing to seize control of the country’s heartland!

In Möbius Front ‘83 you will fight tactical, turn-based battles with the cutting-edge military hardware of the early 1980s. Use every tool available — powerful tanks, fast-moving attack helicopters, long-ranged artillery, tenacious infantry, and more — to control the complex and rapidly-changing battlefield of the era.

Who are the “Americans” attacking America, and why? Find out in the game’s extensive single-player campaign and its fully voiced cutscenes. When you’re ready for some R&R, play a new kind of solitaire, solve Zachtronics-style puzzles, and even read the U.S. military manuals that inspired the game.

MULTIPLAYER & SOVIET ARMY UPDATE: You can now also play one-off skirmish missions against the AI or your Steam friends using the armies from the campaign and the newly added Soviet Army faction. Complete the single-player campaign and unlock the ability to play as the enemy in multiplayer!

Möbius Front ’83 is available on Windows PC via Steam.
