Publisher Super.com and PortaPlay have announced a release date of Q1 2020 for the upcoming alternate-history WWII Broken Lines on Nintendo Switch and PC. Broken Lines is a narrative driven tactics game where a group of soldiers ends up behind enemy lines following a plane crash.
In this alternative version of WWII, Broken Lines combines tactical RPG with a “pause and play” format. This offers a more fluid and realistic gameplay, the action automatically pauses when new danger appears allowing you to respond to the new tactical situation.
Hans von Knut Skovfoged, Creative Director at PortaPlay, said, “We partnered with Super.com because we knew they would help us bring Broken Lines to completion and showcase it to a wider audience, and today, we are pleased to announce that partnership is coming to fruition. We believe traditional turn-based strategy gamers will tremendously enjoy Broken Lines, and there’s plenty to love for those that crave a rich story-driven experience and a look at the impact that war has on the human psyche.”

It’s a special game that we expect players will appreciate as something new, and it’s exciting to be part of the product’s launch, ongoing development, and release.”
