Zachtronics Reveals Turn-Based Wargame Mobius Front '83

October 26, 2020

Zachtronics has revealed Mobius Front '83, a brand-new wargame featuring tactical, turn-based battles utilizing the cutting edge military technology of the early '80s.

Mobius Front '83 will put players in command of the United States military. You'll soon discover yourself under assault from a somewhat unusual enemy: yourself. To be more specific, an American army from an alternative universe has invaded our reality and begun an assault on the nation. The motivation behind this mysterious attack (and where the attackers came from) will likely be revealed as part of the single-player campaign.

Check out the Mobius Front '83 reveal trailer to get a taste of Zachtronics' next upcoming game!

Players will take command of infantry and armored units on a hex-based map. As is typical with this style of game, each unit has a certain number of hit points and different styles of combat. Properly positioning your units and using their advantages against your opponent will be the key to victory.


Aside from an "extensive" single-player campaign, a press release from Zachtronics notes that it will also feature fully-voiced cutscenes, Zachtronics-style puzzles, and a "new kind of solitaire." Players will also be able to read the US military manuals that formed the basis for the soldiers, armor, and aircraft that feature in this game.
