War Mongrels gameplay

As mentioned at the start of this article, War Mongrels is a real-time tactics title with an isometric perspective. 

It features a dark, intricate story on the eastern front of World War II, and delves into the darkest parts of the human character. Check out some gameplay below.

Destructive Creations explains the premise of War Mongrels and what players can expect to experience: "The heavily history-inspired storyline guides players through the journey of two Wehrmacht soldiers as they go from deserters to hefty guerilla fighters. Their team expands as they meet new characters who support the same cause. As each character has their own set of skills and advantages, players must learn to combine them effectively to outsmart the enemy during a variety of missions in a changing environment.

"Sneaking, distraction, silent kills and using the environment are some of the main skills players will have to take to heart, but a stock of firearms will also be available and useful in completing mission objectives. And as the goal of every hero is to save others and hopefully survive, our heroes strive to prevent the deaths of innocent people instead of getting away from the war as originally intended."
