Raid: World War II is releasing in summer 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, publisher Starbreeze announced today. Starbreeze CEO Bo Andersson-Klint said:

We’re excitedly following the development progress of RAID and have recently premiered the game to consumers at PAX West in September. The team received great feedback and we are psyched to further preview the game at Reboot in Croatia in November. Bringing in our longstanding partner 505 Games felt natural when we decided to take RAID to retail for consoles and we’re looking forward to working together again on yet another great title.

Developed by Lion Game Lion, Raid: World War II is a four-player co-op shooter set in the second World War-era where you play as a raider, doing undercover missions for the allies while stealing Nazi gold. The description adds:

Some wars require a new breed of soldiers…

With no choice but to comply, soldiers from different parts of the war are brought together. They do not pursue a higher cause and their recklessness makes them ideal for these kind of missions. Raiding and death becomes their new way of military life as they do what they can to seek redemption – one gold bar for every life they take.

The Nazi’s have developed an advanced radar – codenamed “Heimdall”. It is mounted on the roof of a fortified tower in Berlin, and is protected by anti-air guns and Nazi troopers. Allied bombers are drawing close and seek assistance. Mrs White sends her team to break into the massive tower, fight their way to the roof and deal with Heimdall once and for all.

The above trailer debuted back at E3, before the PS4 and Xbox One versions were announced.
