NACON and Brave Lamb Studio’s highly anticipated game, War Hospital, is set to release on January 11, 2024, for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S. This single-player management game places players in charge of a field hospital during World War I, where they must tend to wounded soldiers, manage medical staff, and allocate resources strategically.
War Hospital, developed by Brave Lamb Studio and published by NACON, is a compelling fusion of real-time strategy and survival genres. Unlike its humorous counterparts like Theme Hospital or Two Point Hospital, War Hospital delves into the seriousness of its subject matter.
Players assume the role of Major Henry Wells, who leads a British field hospital in a fictional town in northern France during the First World War. The game challenges players to make critical decisions to ensure the hospital’s success while navigating the complexities of wartime healthcare.
A deeper look into War Hospital’s gameplay
In War Hospital, players must manage every aspect of a field hospital’s operation. This involves caring for incoming wounded soldiers, strategically deploying medical staff, and efficiently allocating resources to keep the hospital running smoothly. The game’s unique blend of strategy and survival mechanics means that players will need to make choices that have far-reaching consequences, making for a truly immersive experience.
The gameplay mechanics revolve around the treatment and rehabilitation of wounded soldiers. As Major Henry Wells, players will face the challenges of limited resources, time constraints, and the ever-present dangers of war. Each decision made by the player will impact the hospital’s ability to save lives and fulfill its mission.
A delay for quality and realism
NACON’s decision to delay the release of War Hospital until January 11, 2024, was motivated by a commitment to delivering a deep and realistic gaming experience while respecting the gravity of the subject matter.

To confirm the updated release date, NACON has released an official trailer for War Hospital.
