Tactics RPG Dread Nautical Heads to PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One April 29

Zen Studios have announced their rouge-like tactics style RPG Dread Nautical will be heading to additional platforms.

Originally released on iOS (via Apple Arcade) last year, the game will now be heading to Windows PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Players will need to explore the cruse liner Hope, which has come under attack from monsters from alternate dimensions. A singer, detective, gamer, and ex-Yakuza must now work together to rescue other survivors, keep a close eye on your resources, and manage to survive at all costs.

Players control a team of ragtag heroes when their cruse liner is attacked by strange and supernatural forces. Combat is top-down and tactical, with actions taking place at the cost of “Action Points” per turn.

You can find the announcement trailer below.

You can find the rundown of the game (via Epic Games Store) below.

Your cruise was so relaxing until the monsters from another dimension showed up to kill everyone. Fight them off, manage your resources effectively, and convince scattered survivors to join your efforts. A captivatingly eerie tactical turn-based RPG.

Supernatural forces have overwhelmed a cruise liner called Hope with mysterious malevolent monstrosities. Fight them off as one of four unlikely heroes.

Manage your scarce resources effectively, and convince scattered survivors to fight alongside you. You’ll need them for any hope of escaping this “vacation” alive.

Traverse all 20 decks to unlock the mysteries of the Hope. Think several steps ahead during each battle, plotting the optimal use of each character’s action points.

Your weapons, bandages, and other items deteriorate, and your resources are very limited. Make sure your companions rest, or panic may overtake them.

Oh… And expect to die. A lot.

Dread Nautical is available on iOS (via Apple Arcade), and April 29th on Windows PC (via Epic Games Store), Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
