The Red Solstice

n the year 2060 the Earth was ravaged by a virus pandemic of a magnitude greater than the Bubonic plague. The virus spread quickly, those who were infected became something less human, willing carriers of the modern-day plague. Government action came too late, and as the chaos escalated corporate agencies rushed space programs in a desperate bid to evacuate the planet, since a cure could not be found. The fledgling colonies of Mars became humanity's last bastion, and since no traces of the virus was found among the lucky few who boarded the space vessels bound for the Red Planet, it was believed the danger had been averted.

It is now the year 117 AE (After Earth) terraforming is well under way, however during an exceptionally violent storm dubbed The Red Solstice, communication lines between Tharsis, the colony referred to as The Capital and the remaining human settlements of Mars are disrupted. The Elysium Corporation deploys its elite marine task force to investigate what happened to the colony.
In The Red Solstice you control one of eight space marines trying to find out what happened to human colonies on Mars during that storm. The mix of a dark and gritty science fiction setting and addictive, adrenaline-filled gameplay – based on both advanced tactics and quick decisions – forges the game’s unforgettable atmosphere and creates a great gameplay experience.

Game main features:

  • 8 player co-op multiplayer
  • Adrenaline filled and quick tactics focused gameplay
  • 8 different classes to chose from: Assault, Heavy Support, Recon, Marksman, Demolition, Terminator, Hellfire and Medic
  • Experience based character development system
  • High replayability
  • Dark and gritty survival sci-fi story and setting
  • Unending waves of monsters during ~1 hour gaming sessions
  • Challenging Boss Fights

The Red Solstice is played in roughly hour-long gameplay sessions, during which players need to scavenge for supplies, find and fortify their base and then defend it from an almost infinite number of monsters to finally evacuate survivors. An experience-based character development system and the ability to upgrade your space marines’ equipment during a battle is another fundamental part of the gameplay.
