The Red Solstice 2: Survivors opens sign-ups for Alpha today

From Press Release:

SEPTEMBER 24TH, 2019 – Developer Ironward today announce that alpha sign-ups for their sequel to the best-selling original, The Red Solstice 2: Survivors are now open.

Accompanying the announcement comes the second in a planned series of trailers exploring the gritty sci-fi world and its emboldened survivors who stand as the last bastion against an unfathomable alien menace.

To join the fight players 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 your 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.

The Red Solstice 2: Survivors lead developer, Hrvoje Horvatek said: “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.

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 3Night of the Dead: Special Ops, which became hugely popular at the time and ultimately led to the creation of The Red Solstice franchise.”

Alpha sign-ups are open now. You can check out the previous gameplay teaser trailer on YouTube to get a greater sense of the atmosphere the sequel is looking to invoke.
