From the developers of Age of Empires II: The Forgotten and Age of Mythology Extended Edition, SkyBox Labs presents Lethal Tactics.

Lethal Tactics is a turn-based tactics game in which player turns are submitted asynchronously but the turn results are resolved simultaneously. Take control of a squad of armed units, each with their own specialized weapons and strategic advantages, and watch the epic gunfights play out based on the tactical movements and orders you issue.

Matches play out on visually stunning maps that are custom designed for tense showdowns, surprise attacks and quick getaways. Randomized map elements mean that every match is different as strategies that were successful in one match may not be in the next. and Learn the different character types and special abilities to formulate traps and coordinated attacks – use The Shotgunner to breach walls to launch a sneak attack, or choose the The Gunman’s Scout ability to track opponents behind walls to avoid an ambush.

Predict, plan and execute orders to outwit your opponent.
