Starbreeze and Lion Game Lion’s RAID: World War II has officially launched on Steam. The multiplayer heist game sees players attempting to raid Nazi stashes for loot during World War II.
The announcement about the game’s availability was accompanied by a press release chock full of basic gameplay details. Surprisingly there was no fancy launch trailer that is usually attached at the hip of big releases like this.
The game is a spin-off of the Payday 2 formula perfected by Overkill Software. In the game players will have four different starting classes to choose from, including Assault, Recon, Assault, Insurgent and Demolitions. I’m genuinely shocked that Lion Game Lion actually focused on just making some characters instead of trying to cater toward the whole multiculturalism agenda being pushed by the Soros types. It’s even more astonishing given that Starbreeze is a Swedish publisher.
Just like with Payday 2, it’s also possible to modify the weapons using attachments that were present during World War II. You can upgrade and modify the barrels, stocks, fore grips, optic sights, and loadout.
The game’s locations are based around real-world locales, including Berlin, Elbe, and various other regions across Reich-occupied Europe. The objective is quite straightforward: break into Nazi-occupied territories, kill the Nazis, steal their loot, make an escape. If you’ve played Payday 2 then you know how the gameplay loop works.
The base game is available for $39.99 but the special edition is $64.99, which comes with a special Apple Red Kübelwagen car, a digital comic book, a decorative bomb for the camp, the OST, four special jackets, a digital art book, a game logo, two special in-game melee weapons, and four wallpapers.
The reviews haven’t been very kind to the game, many calling it a poor clone of Payday 2 with less guns. Others claim it’s little more than nationalistic propaganda versus Nazism, a common thread in many games released these days.
