Good luck making sense of that trailer, it’s like someone got a fake blood machine for their birthday and just couldn’t help themselves. Not often you get a live action teaser for a new game though.

Here’s what’s actually going off: in Phantom Doctrine you’ll take charge of a secret organization called The Cabal. Your organization is fighting against a global conspiracy to control the world by pitting nations against each other.

Phantom Doctrine is a turn-based tactical espionage game set in 1983. You’ll recruit agents, research tech, deploy your agents to infiltrate places, or deploy your agents armed to the teeth and shoot your way in. There’ll also be intelligence analysis as you investigate the conspiracy and probable targets, aiding your investigation will be the ability to interrogate and brainwash enemies and allies alike to create double agents, saboteurs, and unwitting collaborators.

We love a good spy thriller, we even fancy ourselves to be international men of mystery. Sadly we’re a bit crap at it because we tell everyone everything, like the fact that Phantom Doctrine is set to release sometime in 2018 but you can always take a peek on Steam. This message will not self destruct.


Official Press Release

GOOD SHEPHERD ENTERTAINMENT REVEALS CREATIVEFORGE GAMES’ PHANTOM DOCTRINE, A TACTICAL CONSPIRACY THRILLER

The hearts and minds behind Hard West return with their most ambitious game yet, coming next year to consoles and Windows PC

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands and WARSAW, Poland – Aug. 22, 2017 – Good Shepherd Entertainment and independent developer CreativeForge Games have officially revealed Phantom Doctrine, a turn-based tactical Cold War espionage game from the creators of Hard West for consoles and Windows PC.

Set in 1983 during the Cold War, Phantom Doctrine is an alternate history thriller in which players lead The Cabal, a secret organization dedicated to fighting a global conspiracy committed to controlling the world by pitting world leaders and nations against one another. Deception is the great equalizer as players will have to operate from the shadows to exploit every vulnerability – ruthlessly interrogate and brainwash enemies and allies alike to create double agents, saboteurs or unwitting collaborators.

Develop and defend your base of operations, recruit agents from the world’s many factions, and research new tech to give your operatives the advantage. Campaign missions deliver sprawling tactical encounters that revolve around two key pillars: stealth and explosive, all-out attacks. Your team of operatives can be deployed into the field either fully armed or disguised as civilians, allowing them to infiltrate dangerous areas undetected at the expense of heavy weapons and armor.

Decode and analyze your way through immersive investigations to expose far-reaching conspiracies and elusive targets. Delve into the oppressive dark corners of the volatile 1980s with atmospheric visuals and an unnerving soundtrack by award-winning composer Marcin Przybylowicz of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt fame.

For those attending PAX West 2017, Phantom Doctrine will have a hands-on demo available by appointment at Booth #6103. If you’d like to set one up, just let us know and we’ll get it sorted.

Phantom Doctrine will launch in 2018 on Windows PC and consoles. For the latest updates as development progresses, please visit www.facebook.com/PDoctrineGame, and follow the teams on Twitter @GoodShepherdEnt and @PhantomDoctrine.
