- Each player mans a station in the U-boat, and the crew will need to cooperate in order to succeed in their mission. Unlike other submarine simulators, Wolfpack is designed for players to procedurally manage the submarine through direct, manual interaction with valves, levers, and instruments.
- Each U-boat has up to five players: The captain, the helmsman, the dive officer, the radio man, and the navigator.
- All stations and instruments in the U-boat are carefully modeled after original pictures and sources, and kept as realistic as possible without compromising usability. The game contains a fully operational torpedo data computer, manual navigation tools, and ship recognition manual.
Wolfpack is a realistic, first person, co-op U-boat game where one or multiple crews of players man the stations of a highly detailed German type VII U-boat during the Second World War. It will appeal to people who enjoy cooperative style games and slower paced gameplay. Each player mans a station in the U-boat, and the crew will need to cooperate in order to succeed in their mission. The helmsman controls the U-boats heading and speed, and operates the torpedo data computer. The radio man operates the hydrophone, radio, radio direction finder, and Enigma machine. The navigator calculates the position of the u-boat, and determines the best route to intercept enemy convoys. The dive officer controls the depth using the dive planes, ballast and negative tanks and serves as a lookout and gunner for the deck gun and anti aircraft gun. The captain is the commander of the U-boat, and gives orders to the rest of the crew. To get the most enjoyment out of it, the recommendation is to have at least 3 people per submarine and use voice chat for coordination (although in-game chat is also supported). This game ain't for everyone, you definitly need to go on the different crew discords and find a group of guys who are willing to learn the game with you and teach you stuff. The game doesn't hold your hand at all, if you don't have some knowledge of how subs works, you will be completely lost. These kind of games normally have pretty good communities, with people just helping each others. But if you have some interests in subs, this game is a gem.
