The Red Solstice - Preview @ Game Crastinate

by Couchpotato, 2014-07-13 13:13:25

Game Crastinate has posted a short preview of Iron Ward's recently launched Early Access version of The Red Solstice.

This week, Ironward officially launched The Red Solstice, a sci-fi co-op tactical action strategy game available on Steam Early Access. Today we’re taking a look at this ambitious title to see whether or not the game can live up to the hype, even at this early stage in development. At this point, The Red Solstice is entirely an online game. This being a Early Access title, features such as single player have yet to be added. Upon loading up The Red Solstice, you’ll have the opportunity to play through a “prologue”, which is basically a short tutorial to help new players get accustomed to the movement and actions available in the game. Playing the prologue is highly recommend before jumping into mutliplayer, it’s pretty helpful. Once you’ve got a handle on the controls, it’s time to jump right into the mix with the general population.

Not every mission will be a success, even if you put an hour into it, you can still gloriously fail. It’s the panicked sense of impending doom that shines most brightly. The next room may be your last. That equipment locker might not have enough ammo to last very long. Your Medic could get caught unprepared for an ambush. The Red Solstice is absolutely glorious, and is everything PC gaming is about.
