After a year in Steam’s Early Access program, The Red Solstice has launched with a full single-player campaign, UI improvements, a tutorial, skirmish mode, tactical mode, and more.
Developed by Ironward and published by Nkidu Games, The Red Solstice has quite a few features including:
Take the Lead: Issue commands and set waypoints and objectives for your friends as you outsmart and outgun your way through the derelict domiciles of Tharsis.
Play Your Way, Together: With support for 8-player co-op, play as one of 8 distinct, customizable classes, each with unique abilities and traits.
Odd Jobs: Tackle an onslaught of randomly generated events with just one hour to make your mark. From zone defense to supply retrieval, you’re never short of enemies to kill and objectives to complete.
Earn and Learn: Kill to earn experience points and unlock new abilities and classes. Heal allies, deploy turrets, launch grenades, set traps and much, much more.
Tactical Single-Player: Play on your own and lead a squad through a satisfying single-player campaign, and lead your squad through a wide variety of levels using The Red Solstice’s Tactical Mode, which lets you issue commands while slowing down the action.
Game NOT Over, Man: Killing ain’t easy. Drive back untold Martian horrors in multiple modes, maps and difficulties and get stronger every time. Even if you perish.
We’ve had our hands on a review copy for a few days now and so far it’s shaping up to be a fun, if sometimes hectic, tactical survival game – both in single player and 8 player co-op modes. Check back early next week for our full review.
