Red Solstice 2: Survivors is built on the themes of the original action strategy game and upping the mood, gameplay, and strategy elements to new levels.

Red Solstice 2: Survivors blends real-time tactical action with in-depth strategy and planning in a world where humanity’s last survivors are beset on every front. Join up to 7 friends in online co-op mode and struggle to survive as part of squad-based battles that mix the fast-paced action of Helldivers with the thoughtful strategy of games like X-COM.

Earth is destroyed but life still lingers and the player’s goal is simple... Make it out alive and help humanity survive.

It’s the year 117 After Earth, and corporations rush to secure dominance over the last remnants of humanity. It’s up to you to take command of your squad, fight the powers that be, and find a cure to the virus that threatens to end mankind.

Across both a deep strategy layer and engaging real-time combat missions, players need to think on their feet to survive in this hostile world and determine the fate of the planet. Choose your mission, design your load-out, then take to the battlefield and lead your squad to victory. Red Solstice 2: Survivors is playable in single-player or with up to seven friends where you plan your strategy to infiltrate a real-time tactical battlefield. 

Can you show cunning in combat to stay alive, and fight for the future of humankind?

Take a free trip to Mars and fight for the planet in Red Solstice 2: Survivors’ real-time tactical combat with today's new demo, available for a limited period of time on Steam. 

This new demo includes all updates, the game’s opening, three single-player missions (“The Awakening”, “Emergency Extraction” and “New War”), and a taste of Red Solstice 2’s Strategy Layer.

Ironward’s focus with The Red Solstice 2: Survivors is iterating on the tight corridor combat of the original further to create what they truly believe is a great leap in claustrophobic isometric gameplay. Coupled with a focus on improved combat is the deep mood set by the sci-fi alien homage prevalent in design and a completely new layer of the strategy tools players will use in-game; adding technology development, resource collection, and world map combat mission choices.

Key Features:
