It’s the year 1985. The tensions between the two superpowers nearly escalate when rogue Soviet forces invade the NATO controlled island of Malden. David Armstrong is a soldier fresh out of bootcamp when he is sent to the front lines, and it quickly becomes apparent that war rarely goes as planned. Indeed, there is little time for heroics as the first few missions are all about trying to stay alive.

Careful attention to detail makes all the difference, and Warhorse managed to create a believable reinterpretation of medieval Bohemia. What the game lacks in the supernatural, it makes up for with fierce political intrigue, interesting characters and wonderful quest design.
