Wolfpack is a WWII submarine simulator. The project was developed by the Swedish studio Usurpator and released by Subsim.
The game revolves around co-operative gameplay and focuses primarily on realism. Players are the crewmembers of the German U-Boat VII submarine. In Wolfpack, players focus on sinking enemy convoys, protected by military units.
Each player controls a single crewmember. Navigating a submarine requires the joint action of several operators of different stations on board by manually manipulating switches, levers and other instruments, as has actually been the case.
In total, each crew consists of the master, the helmsman, the radio operator, the navigator, and the officer responsible for the draught level of the submarine. Everyone has unique tasks and competencies, and only close cooperation allows players to hope for success.
Wolfpack focuses on cooperative games, but the authors have also prepared bots to replace the missing players.
The game allows you to hunt for procedurally generated convoys or play a cooperative campaign recreating the most famous skirmishes of 1939-1945. In the latter case, players are given the opportunity to improve the ship in accordance with the technological progress that took place during the Second World War.
The game has fully 3D visuals, and its strongest point is the detailed reconstruction of the interior of the submarine.
