Microids is pleased to announce that Operation Wolf Returns: First Mission will be available on September 21st, 2023 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and PC. Discover or rediscover Operation Wolf, the cult arcade game released, developed and published by TAITO in 1987, which left its mark on a whole generation of gamers as one of the first games to feature a horizontal scrolling rail shooter.
Developed by the French studio Virtuallyz Gaming, Operation Wolf Returns: First Mission remains faithful to the spirit of the original game, while premiering a new artistic direction. Players will find themselves transported back to the world of 80s action films, thanks to a gameplay focused entirely on non-stop action.
In its solo or coop campaign, play as a special agent fighting a new criminal organisation. In addition to arms and drug trafficking, the organisation, led by the mysterious General Viper, has developed a powerful new weapon. After discovering several of its bases, you will be sent to dismantle the organisation, destroy the weapon and free the hostages held captive in surrounding camps.
