Aeria Games currently publishes the original Soldier Front, which has garnered a very large and active community since its inception. Soldier Front 2 aims to build on that even more, featuring gorgeous graphics running on the Unreal Engine 3, a diversity of strategic team combat modes, and an unprecedented level of realism. The game also has an expertly designed learning curve, making it easy for beginners to learn while maintaining a high level of competition for veteran players.
One of Soldier Front 2’s defining characteristics is the sheer amount of variety in gameplay, progression, and customization. A large amount of team combat modes, including a unique MOBA-style scenario, provide many options for players to mix up their experiences between matches. There is also an intense co-op mode pitting players against waves of encroaching aliens.
Aeria Games has revealed the details of the Challenge and weapon upgrade systems in Soldier Front 2. The upcoming First-Person Shooter (FPS) features a robust path of progression that allows players to control their long-term development.
It all begins with the Challenge system, which sets many milestones as goals for players to work towards as they gun down opponents. These can widely vary, from simply playing for a certain number of hours to scoring a multitude of headshots. A handy tracker in the game lobby allows players to see their progress and pick out which challenges to chase.
In addition to bragging rights, challenges are key to growing out a player’s arsenal of weapons. Each completed challenge unlocks a modified version of a particular gun, which can then be purchased with points earned from playing matches. Each new version of a gun does not replace previous versions, so that players can freely switch between them according to their style of play.
An achievement system is built into the game for the players who love completing optional objectives to rack up achievement points. In addition, weapons and gear can be customized as players progress further in the game to alter their appearance, allowing players to further distinguish themselves on the battlefield.
