Alpha sign-ups are now open for Ironward’s The Red Solstice 2: Survivors.

Those interested in participating in the alpha will need to sign-up to the mailing list to get alpha access and stand against the insidious virus that threatens to consume the universe.

The Red Solstice 2: Survivors blends real-time tactical action with in-depth strategy and planning in a world where humanity’s last survivors are beset on every front. Join with friends for up to 8-player co-op in a tense struggle for survival through squad-based battles that mix the fast-paced action of Helldivers with the thoughtful strategy of games like X-COM.

“One of my favourite movies of all time is Aliens and the idea of creating a game that embodies this, with the right feeling, is something that always inspired me,” says lead developer Hrvoje Horvatek. “After playing the Night of the Dead map mod for Warcraft 3 I first caught a glimpse of that atmosphere I had imagined, and this inspired me to create my own mod for Warcraft 3, Night of the Dead: Special Ops, which became hugely popular at the time and ultimately led to the creation of The Red Solstice franchise.”

According to developer Ironward:

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.
