Been looking to scratch that turn-based tactics itch lately? Frozen Synapse 2 might be your thing.
Tagged With frozen synapse 2
Mode 7 games popped up a little while ago with a trailer showing some very Frozen Synapsey combat for Frozen Synapse 2, and showed off a large city that you could do missions in. We had also previously known that it would be an "open world" game -- but now we have the first in a series of developer updates, and we can finally see what the game is going to be like.
2011's Frozen Synapse was a very good turn-based tactics game, one of the pioneers of the genre's current Golden Age. Now we're getting a very big sequel.
It's been given away in countless Humble Bundles, plays excellently on mobiles and probably echoes the vibe of Counter-Strike in a turn-based format better than some of those browser games out there.
Mode7 Games hasn't been talking about Frozen Synapse for a while though, having spent the last couple of years focusing on Frozen Cortex. But the more tactical shooter is getting a sequel, and it's due out this year.
