In today’s video we take a first look at an upcoming World War II turn based wargame, The Troop.

The Troop is a turn-based, platoon-level tactical game set in WW2. From the early hours of D-Day, follow the campaign of the British and Canadian forces as they struggle against their German counterparts in fighting across Normandy and beyond.

On the morning of the 6th June 1944 the Western Allies began the largest seaborne invasion in the history of warfare. D-Day would mark the start of a vicious campaign to wrestle North West Europe from German control. The following months would see the ancient fields, farms and villages serve as a battleground for new, lethal weapons that would become legendary.

The Troop follows the campaign of British and Canadian forces as they face the German Heer and SS in Normandy. Take command of infantry, motorised and armoured units in desperate tactical turn-based combat against an AI opponent that is challenging and unpredictable, but fair and fallible.

Simple, complete control – The Troop embraces the best traditions of classic tabletop war gaming combined with the interactivity and excitement the digital format affords. You have complete control over your units’ actions; tanks will not expose their weak side armour with unexpected pathing, hidden guns will not reveal their positions by firing prematurely, infantry will not flee inexplicably when victory is a few heroic paces away. Your AI opponent has no special knowledge and is subject to all the same rules and restrictions as you. You are free to take your time… but any mistakes are yours and yours alone.

Choose your difficulty, play as you want – The Troop does not have one difficulty setting. Instead players can control a variety of feature and information settings to tailor their gameplay experience for the most enjoyable challenge.

A game, not a simulation – The Troop is born from a life long passion for WW2 history and turn-based games. Our aim is to give a little glimpse of that history through an enjoyable challenge. The events depicted are set in the broad reality of the historical campaigns, the missions themselves however are fictional and geared towards an enjoyable challenge rather than a strict depiction of history. We hope only to do justice to the spirit of those countless memoirs and after action reports that survive and continue to fascinate us.

  1. Thanks for the video. I think Battlefront's Combat Mission is still the best turn based WW2 game there is even though it's somewhat dated.

  2. Nice graphics but still a bit simplistic for my taste. There seems to be no stamina, smoke, reaction fire, different AP/HEAT or HE ammunition. The LOS tool should work from and to arbitrary hexes. I hope there will also be leaders, effective armor (slope), unit carry-over and a scenario generator.

  3. Overall looks promising. The cut scenes to individual pieces of equipment are enjoyable, would like to see the infantry firing too. AI can use some work (common); will be downloading demo. More game play please, well done!

  4. Thank you! Gave me a good feel for the game as it currently plays. It's very helpful to me to see someone having problems with tactics / strategy.

  5. It has been a while since I have enjoyed a turn-based game of tactical combat like this. I like the simplicity and I like the problem-solving you do with each move learning as you go. Good job showcasing the game. Your expletives show your frustration. As real as a turn-based game can get.
