Set in 1943, Naval Assault: The Killing Tide engages players in non-stop combat through lethal deep-sea missions in the North Atlantic. Players join the U.S. Naval submarine fleet in order to stop the spread of Axis forces and turn the killing tide of war.

To conquer the Axis forces, players confront oil tankers, cargo ships, destroyers, frigates, battleships and more. To take control of the North Atlantic, players will need a healthy dose of stealth and cunning, as well as sharp shooting deck gun and torpedo skills to successfully destroy the enemy fleet in 30 single- and multi-player missions.
