'Tooth and Tail' (ALL) Gets Release Date, Multiplayer Details - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on July 14, 2017 @ 9:05 a.m. PDT

Tooth and Tail is a real-time strategy game where you lead the revolution with an army of flamethrowing Boars, mustard gas-lobbing Skunks, and paratrooper-puking Owls.

Tooth and Tail features an extensive Single Player Campaign, Online Competitive Play, Split Screen, Replays, and more. Build a base, lead your army, eat your enemies!

“A Modern Animal eats his meat”, as they say in Vyeshal. Ever since the Blight, animals have taken to feeding upon each other through a ritual called the Harvest, when the Civilized choose members of the populace to be cooked and served at the feasting table.

Set in an era of industrial revolution, and filled with characters like the acorn-brewing Distillery Brothers and the thuggish chameleons of the Trench Gang, a story of political revolution and personal vengeance unravels.

Explore the Warrens as the flagbearers of the four factions: the Longcoats, the Commonfolk, the KSR, and the Civilized. Each character’s campaign contains unique rules, settings, and strategies. And with procedurally generated maps, the Story Mode is endlessly replayable.

After you’ve gotten your feet wet in Story Mode (or sunk many hours into all four characters’ arcs), maybe you’ll have an appetite for multiplayer. Tooth and Tail’s multiplayer has been tested with a three-year long private alpha, which has spawned a fan-run tournament scene, called Clash of Comrades. We patch the game frequently with balance changes and new features, and we plan to do so after launch as well.

The competitive mode in Tooth and Tail is called the Arena. Here, players can compete versus players of similar rank to vie for their place in the standings. In the Arena, every game matters.

Since matches only last 5 to 12 minutes, players feel more at ease experimenting with new strategies, or trying crazy stuff to catch their opponents off guard. As with single-player, all maps are procedurally generated, and players can customize their hidden army before the start of the match, so no two games are exactly alike!

Of course, if online competitive play is too intimidating, you can always play Split Screen with up to four players. Or if you’ve got a buddy that you like to play couch-co-op games with, you can play mixed Split Screen and Online in 2v2 matches as well.

 


Key Features

  • The War for Meat -- The Longcoats, the Commonfolk, the KSR, and the Civilized are in the midst of a Civil War over who gets to eat, and who has to be the meat. A darkly humorous tale of riots and revolution is told through an extensive Single Player campaign.
  • Endless Replayability -- With procedurally generated maps and customizable factions, no two conflicts will be the same, forcing players to strategize rather than memorize.
  • Pick-up-and-Play -- With matches lasting from 5-12 minutes, split-screen couch play, and controls designed for controllers or keyboard/mouse, Tooth and Tail is a popcorn RTS for veterans and newcomers alike."

Tooth and Tail will be available on PS4 and PC (Steam & GOG) on Sept. 12, 2017, with pre-orders available on all platforms this Tuesday, July 18th!
