Submarines: a game will feature them this summer

Please, oh, please let Naval Assault: The Killing Tide incorporate something from Wolfgang Petersen’s Das Boot. It can be anything, really. Milky white cast members with bad teeth and equally bad VO would be huge … but we’ll settle for a Type VIIC-class U-boat, which from the sound of it at least, seems all but uber-confirmed.
 
Artech Studios and 505 Games announced Naval Assault last afternoon, calling it an “arcade style submarine title.” It’s an Xbox 360 exclusive that is set to support several four-person multiplayer modes and have a campaign offering that will have you squaring off as an Allied submarine commander against the Axis powers in World War II. It hits June 15th — the same day George Washington was named the commander-in-chief of the Continental Army in 1775.
