[PC] The Red Solstice 2: Survivors

The top-down 8-player shooter returns, but this time with a brand-new XCOM-style strategy layer. If I understand this correctly, it's a dream game come true: play normal XCOM strategy and then drop into the tactical levels with seven friends where the shooting takes place in real-time. My only gripe from the released materials so far is that the graphics are mediocre, including the art direction. Not bad by any means, and there are flashes of good quality in there, but overall the aesthetics are not as attractive as they could be. Still, the mechanics sound insane, so this is a must-try at the very least when it comes out. Which may be sooner than you'd think for those who don't mind trying alphas, as the developers' alpha sign-up page has been up since September but the test hasn't happened yet so it may be coming shortly: https://mailchi.mp/theredsolstice.com/tu6lz1dh2m

It's the year 117 After Earth, and corporations rush to secure dominance over the last remnants of humanity. It's up to you to take command of your squad, fight the powers that be, and find a cure to the virus that threatens to end mankind.

Across both a deep strategy layer and engaging real-time combat missions, you'll need to think on your feet to survive in this hostile world and determine the fate of the planet. Choose your mission, design your load-out, then take to the battlefield and lead your squad to victory.

Playable in single-player or with up to seven friends, ​The Red Solstice 2: Survivors combines tense claustrophobic action with careful strategic planning to create a sci-fi experience like no other.
