Brave Lamb Studio partners with Nacon to war hospital to PlayStation 5 consoles next year. The “strategy and survival” game gives players the task of managing a British field hospital during the later years of World War I, as they deal with traumatic injuries, a low budget and a location alarmingly close to the action. .
The year is 1917 and Major Henry Wells is a retired British doctor who is sent back to a field hospital on the French front to treat the wounded. There is not enough money, a lack of equipment and personnel and conditions that are not ideal for healthcare. Wells must manage emergencies as they come in, keep morale high, and try to improve the hospital’s operation despite the circumstances. He also has to make moral decisions about the “soldiers, the situation at the front and the battles” that can even inspire periods of ceasefire.
The game was developed in conjunction with the British Imperial War Museums to be as historically accurate as possible and show “a different face of war in video games”. This means that players will have to deal with authentic World War I gear, although research can evolve and develop new methods. Gameplay is a combination of real-time strategy, survival and RPG, and you can get the briefest glimpse in war hospital pre alpha teaser trailer.
Nacon’s Publishing Director Benoît Clerc said:
Nacon is extremely proud and honored to have been selected by Brave Lambs to collaborate on the success of War Hospital, a unique game in the genre, once again demonstrating, after titles such as This War of Mine and Soldats Inconnus, that our media be able to deal with complex and serious subjects while maintaining their identity.
war hospital will come to PlayStation 5, Xbox, and PC sometime in 2022.
