Iron Wolf Studio has entered a publishing partnership with the acclaimed German developer and publisher Daedalic Entertainment to launch Destroyer: The U-Boat Hunter. The title’s development will continue to be helmed by the Katowice (Poland) – based studio. However, Destroyer will now be featured as a part of Daedalic’s publishing line-up and will see the light of day on September 28th when it becomes available on Windows PC through Steam Early Access.

In Destroyer: The U-Boat Hunter, get ready to immerse yourself in a comprehensive World War II simulator that will have you take on the role of a Fletcher-class destroyer captain. This means that you will be tasked with all the crucial responsibilities of an anti-submarine destroyer attack team. You can choose to automate certain tasks to focus more on the operational side of things, but you can also do it all yourself, from identifying enemy vessels in the distance and plotting their projected inbound trajectories to positioning and commanding allied forces to intercept and attack enemy hostiles. Take complete control of your destroyer and engage in combat in any way you believe is necessary to protect the allied convoy entrusted to you.

Destroyer: The U-Boat Hunter is tailor-made for experienced simulator veterans that are looking for the most realistic experience in the market. The game will have you jumping on the controls of a fully-equipped battleship with limited battlefield awareness, using authentic instruments and naval attack procedures to locate and eliminate enemy U-Boats. The intricacy and attention to detail present in each navigation tool, plotting table, radar, battle-station, etc. Will provide you with a level of immersion rarely seen in the genre.

Main Features:

  • Blast from the past: The most realistic and comprehensive WW2 anti-submarine warfare simulation available
  • Impressive realism: Take full control of a Fletcher-class destroyer, using authentic instruments and attack procedures
  • Find your bearings: Learn to track U-boats and analyze their maneuvers with the help of painstakingly recreated plot tables and specialized displays
