I'll probably have to buy a better PC to play this, but this looks to be the Holy Grail for those who want to be a U-Boat Kommandeur:

and, for the "Das Boot" feel, here it is in German:

No, this is a PC game. System requirements have yet to be announced.

I just got SH4 + U-boat missions expansion from Steam yesterday and the game is pretty cool. The graphics have improved a lot it seems from SH3. I'm looking forward to SH5 :)

I still dont think SH4 is better than SH3 with the GWX 3 mod!

Likewise, but it's well worth having both just for the different theatres. Hopefully SH5 will incorporate the best of both, plus some. It's good to see the series doing so well, although I wish more people seemed to share my particular enjoyment of modern sub-sims. Dangerous Waters is terrific, but getting just a little long in the tooth now.

I agree, and U-Boat Missions is a sham. They've taken the SH3 graphics and crammed them into SH4 to make a cheap buck. SH4 is bad, and the "mission pack" is worse.

I picked SH4 Gold for 10 bucks. Don't think it was that bad.

Yet another must-buy. Every so often I get the submarine bug and have been enjoying SH3 and SH4 in the past few years. Sometimes there's nothing quite as satisfying as watching a merchant ship being torn asunder by exploding torpedoes.

I think it's a mistake for game companies to announce games even this far in advance... by the time the games come out, they usually slide from my "must buy" list to my "I've done without it so far while wanting it" list.  Not to mention the bad press from the inevitable whining about the inevitable release delays, etc.

I'm still happy with SH3 + gobs of mods (SH4 never appealed because submarine warfare was always/only U-boats for me. *grin*) (okay, I did play the hell out of Gato & Silent Service II. But they were the only choices at the time! *grin*)
