'Door Kickers 2: Task Force North' Available On Steam Early Access - Trailer

Door Kickers 2 is a top down strategy and tactics game about using intelligence assets and controlling Special Operation Units in daring raids to neutralize and capture terrorists in the fictional country of Nowheraki, Middle East.

The long awaited sequel to the hit tactics game Door Kickers, Task Force North brings you the best portrayal of modern Close Quarters Combat and Tactics in a video game.

True to the violent and dynamic nature of combat in the region, the game models deadly threats and technologies such as booby traps, suicide bombers, RPGs and concealed insurgents - while handing you new toys such as Light Machine Guns for suppressive fire, drone reconnaissance, night vision goggles and wall breaching charges.

Adding further to the roster of improvements, you can now choose the unit to deploy for any mission. The United States Army Rangers make for the initial deployment option, but soon we will reveal other - distinct but equally cool units. The choice will not be simply one of skins and weapons, but also come with distinct playing style and abilities we will reveal further down development road.

Door Kickers 2: Task Force North is now available on Steam Early Access for $19,99.

“Door Kickers 2 is planned with a very large scope, and will be your go-to tactics/strategy game for many years to come! And after you've finished all the content we created ourselves, you'll be able to add many more years of gameplay by means of complete modding control. This comes with great complexity and a huge amount of man-hours. We're a very small team and we simply can't deliver this amount of work without your help. That's where we need you, the community, to help us prioritize features and iron out the gameplay wrinkles, just as you have done during the DK1 development.”

“The current version of the game comes with Single Missions and Coop Multiplayer and contains the following:

  • ~20 Single Missions of which 15 can be also played in Coop
  • Full Blown Mission Editor
  • 1 Playable Unit with 4 Trooper Classes
  • ~28 weapons and pieces of gear
  • ~8 Enemies and NPC types

“We intend to have the game in Early Access for 12 to 16 months. The first part of EA will be dedicated to ironing out the straightforward tactical combat part of the game while the 2nd half will be used for exotic gameplay, undercover units and missions.”

Key Features:

  • Top Down view, optimized for tactical analysis
  • Real Time gameplay with pause-at-will to analyse and change plans
  • No turns, no hexes, no action points - just freeform planning
  • Realistic but action packed
  • Non-linear levels, multiple paths and break-any*-wall kinda freedom
  • Multiple units to play with, each with their distinct playing style
  • Weapon customization
  • Destructible environment
  • Single Player & Online Cooperative Multiplayer (2 players)
  • Custom-built 3D engine, allowing for increased moddability
  • Mission editor
    *almost “any wall”

Door Kickers 2: Task Force North is coming to PC, with other OS versions to be revealed at a later time.
