Do you fear the cold? When 1971 Project Helios launches on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC in Q2 2020, you should.
A turn-based strategy game 1971 Project Helios looks set to hit Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC – both on Steam and GOG – later this year, with the team at Reco Technology aiming for a Q2 release.
Combining modern warfare military tactics and close combat, 1971 Project Helios tells of a time when firearms and vehicles are scarce, conflicts and hostilities have no end, and the terrible freezing cold annihilates friends and foes in its path. It’s up to you to make a change.
Thankfully eight characters have joined forces for a common cause: find an important scientist kidnapped by a massive stratocracy. Along their way they will have to avoid raider attacks, investigate military headquarters, and infiltrate into the territory of a dangerous anti-technological religious sect. The problem is, each of these characters has their own problems and interests at hand, and so even though the alliance is temporary, you can be sure it’ll be something to keep you on your toes throughout, guiding the group to one of three possible endings.
Features of 1971 Project Helios on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC will include:
- Tactical Combat – Fight against three different factions, each one with its unique units, strategy and advantages. Soldiers, snipers, slippery bandits, knights immune to cold… Study your enemies, plan out every move and adapt to all confrontations!
- Exploration – Travel through various locations, from military enclaves to medieval dungeons. There you can search for fulgor, new equipment for your characters, and pieces of information of the world you are in and the factions you face.
- Skill Trees – As you find equipment compatible with each character, you can unlock and upgrade new skills, and combine them to make the perfect builds for your strategy.
- Resource Management – Use all the fulgor you can find to defreeze your HP, decrease the cooldowns, and reanimate your fallen units.
