Today marks the Steam Early Access release of the tactical co-op survival game Red Solstice by developer Ironward. The game, which takes place in the distant future on the planet Mars during a dangerous storm known as the “Red Solstice,” places the players in the shoes of a member of an eight-man team trying to survive on the rough, Martian surface. Each part of the team takes on a different role defined by one of eight different, customizable classes, each with its own unique traits and skills. In addition, there are twenty-five ranks that the player can obtain as they play through the game.
The battle for survival is waged across a number of huge, randomized maps, each carrying a variety of objectives and events for the player to overcome and with which to interact. Along the way, the player will fight, gain experience, and customize their weapons and skills, all in an attempt to survive the storm and live to see another day.
