Phantom Doctrine makes a game out of espionage
Gunfights and spying are par for the course during the height of the Cold War.
If you recognize the team at CreativeForge Games, that's likely thanks to the team's work on Hard Case. But there's a new game in town, and that game--called Phantom Doctrine--is available for PlayStation 4 and PC starting today.
Billed as a "Cold War thriller strategy game," Phantom Doctrine is a turn-based espionage game that lets players lead a covert organization facing off against a global conspiracy. Operating in the shadows, your well-trained agents will investigate cases, research new technology, infiltrate enemy facilities, and overcome their foes using stealth or even brute force.
Phantom Doctrine features a single-player campaign that should last somewhere in the vicinity of 40 hours, by the developer's estimate. You'll see the action from two perspectives: a KGB counterintelligence operative or a renegade CIA commando. There's also a New Game Plus mode, in case you're still thirsting for more as you reach the closing credits.
