About S.O.A.

It's 2014. 10 years ago, a near apocalypse forced you and a group of military veterans underground. Now, you emerge to free humanity from its new oppressors. Controlling a fully-customizable squad of soldiers, you must capture modern military weapons, including tanks, helicopters and jets and battle the enemy while protecting your limited resources. Play through 13 missions in this non-linear campaign, where your choices affect the game's outcome.

S.O.A.'s missions require players to think tactically. Use the cover of night or snow to infiltrate enemy installations, and have your soldiers crouch to shoot more accurately. Your soldiers can use any working vehicle in the game, and you can even call in airstrikes against fortified positions. Use brute force, or be sneaky, so long as you complete your objectives.

S.O.A. also offers multiplayer for up to 8 players, using the maps which ship with the game as well as user-created maps posted on the website. S.O.A. ships with the developer's editor used to create the missions and maps for the game so you can use actual game tools to build new single and multiplayer maps, even new movies and cut-scenes.

S.O.A.'s powerful 3D engine offers destructible environments, 23 different units, the ability to customize vehicles, weather effects such as rain, snow and wind, and day and night missions. Spend endless hours exploring the non-linear campaign and building new worlds within the game.
