RAD Soldiers - (by WarChest)[Universal]




Quote:
You don't see this often. Brink developer Splash Damage is stepping into mobile, but it's doing it with a newly created in-house publisher, WarChest. Consisting of staff sliced and diced from the Splash Damage team, WarChest is primed to deliver quality free-to-play games across iPhone, iPad, and other handsets. We spoked with a Splash Damage marketing dude at the studio the other night, and he seemed revved about the opportunity and the change of pace this represents for the studio. It as a whole, however, will continue developing games in the triple A space. In fact, there's a PC-exclusive free-to-play game and a separate free-to-play console game in the works right now.

Quote:
At the moment, WarChest is buckling down on a game called RAD Soldiers. It's an asynchronous multiplayer strategy game with a beautiful look and a great premise. Set in London after an evacuation, you and a team of "collectible" mercenaries battle for control of the territory. As you play, you'll assemble your group of ruffians, as well as customize their gear, outfits, and special abilities. It's free-to-play, so you'll be using in-game currency to unlock stuff, including new soldiers, equipment, and customization.

Quote:
“Turn-based combat means there’s no rush, allowing you to ponder your next move at your leisure, and giving you ample time to unleash your inner tactical genius” WarChest CCO Richard Jolly said in a statement, “and you’ll earn valuable experience for your soldiers whenever you play, leveling up your squad commander to unlock new abilities”.

We've got the first trailer available for viewing just below, and we think it'll give you a great idea of what to expect. RAD Soldiers is slated for a June 2012 launch across iPhone and iPad. Many map, solider, and weapon updates are planned to follow. We'll be getting our hands on this soon, so stay tuned. Oh, and if that video got you jumpy to play, go ahead and register your name now.

Looks kind of like Team Fortress 2 but async TBS. I'm a bit torn as I enjoy unlockables in games, but with multiplayer, you want your opponents to be on equal footing. Still, will be free to at least try so will be interesting to see how it works out.

That it does, and yet...it's F2P, so I'm expecting an IAP fest. Hopefully, it's at least playable without it, but if online is involved -- which I'm assuming it will be -- that could also be problematic.

You took the smokin' gun right out of my pocket. Be interested to see how the 3d camera works a bit more though.
