Teaser unleashed!

https://youtu.be/E4g3hJ2-nrA

Dear people of The Red Solstice,
after months of hard work, shaping The Red Solstice 2 into a game we are all proud of, we are very excited to present you a little slice of what we have acomplished so far. Moments ago we have uploaded our first teaser trailer for the game. It should give you a bit of the feeling we are going for. We hope you like it.

Here are also some screenshots of the systems that are being worked on:





Armory is of course where you customize your marine's equipment and weapons before sending him into action. This time arround you'll have much broader scope of customization options. You'll be able to pick different firing modes for your weapons, choose to pick more passive abilities at the expense of some active skills, pick one very powerful system instead of few weaker ones, or perhaps just leave more room for ammo, explosives and other items. You'll probably die anyway, but at least you can give some monster a bit of indigestion with the right setup.



Strategy layer is a new feature in The Red Solstice 2. It allows you to choose your missions and play in a more campaign like way, capturing and loosing teritory, securing resources, and joining up with your friends in order to crack those hard missions. You are fighting for entire planet now.


We are starting to do regular mini updates on our progress on Facebook, so if you want to be updated regularly, join us at: https://www.facebook.com/TheRedSolstice/
