WarChest unveils new Splash Damage game RAD SOLDIERS
Brand new high-quality 3D iOS title to deliver ‘Guns with Friends’ gameplay, and it’s free!
London, England – April 2012 - Brand-new British Publisher WarChest™ and award-winning AAA developer Splash Damage®, today announce RAD SOLDIERS™, a turn-based multiplayer strategy title for smartphones and tablets. RAD Soldiers will be first released exclusively on iOS in June 2012.
RAD Soldiers is set in London shortly after mysterious McGuffin Rockets land, leading to a city-wide evacuation. Teams of mercenaries hired by shadowy figures now battle for control of the Rockets and reap their mysterious rewards. Building on Splash Damage’s decade of experience in creating multiplayer games enjoyed by more than 20 million fans, in RAD Soldiers you assemble a unique squad of collectible mercenaries with customizable weapons, outfits, and abilities, then take your squad into hilarious tactical combat on a turn-based battlefield, either offline against AI opponents, or online against your friends.
“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” said Game Director Richard Jolly, CCO of WarChest. “And you’ll earn valuable experience for your soldiers whenever you play, leveling up your squad commander to unlock new abilities”.
“You’ll also earn coins while you play and use them to unlock brand new soldiers, customization options and equipment in the ever expanding in-game store” said WarChest’s CEO Paul Wedgwood. “And use Game Center and Facebook to connect with friends and make new ones.”
RAD Soldiers will be released in June 2012 for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, and will be free. A constant stream of updates, including new maps, soldiers, weapons, and abilities is already in development. RAD Soldiers will leverage the power of online service provider FIRETEAM™ to deliver an immersive cross-platform connected experience.
