‘Dog Duty’ Releasing This Spring

  • Expected to release this Spring on consoles.
  • Currently available on Steam Early Access.
  • Perfect for those looking for a fast-paced, and real-time tactics experience.


Developer Zanardi and Liza and publisher Soedesco have announced that their top-down action strategy title Dog Duty will be releasing this Spring on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. Dog Duty originally became playable back in August of 2019 through Steam Early Access. During its time in development, the title has revived tons of large updates, which have included new playable characters, enemies to battle, bug fixes, and more.

Dog Duty aims to put you in control of a squad of misfits. Octopus Commander is threatening the world, dead set on ending the peace many have been enjoying, and he’s got an army at his disposal to cause destruction. Players will find that Dog Duty is a fun, fast-paced, and real-time tactics title designed to put player enjoyment at the forefront. Enter into combat, and use guerrilla warfare and tactics to eliminate all of the evil Octopus Commander’s troops.

Dog Duty will take you to many locations, and have you fight across many Hollywood-style set pieces, such as fighting on top of a moving vehicle as you go from island to island. These islands have outposts that are waiting for you to liberate them, and each will have an epic and wicked boss for you to defeat. These bosses will provide interesting challenges as they maneuver within their crazy octo-inspired machines. As you move forward in your mission, players will need to beware, as enemies are well armed. Other features are as follows:

  • Assemble a three-person squad and fight in Real Time Squid combat.
  • Liberate outposts to cut-off weapon, armor and other octo-supplies.
  • Defeat epic bosses and kill your way to the Evil Octopus Commander.
  • Fight on top of your armored octo-frying vehicle while driving.
