Today’s Spotlight is Freeman: Guerrilla Warfare, a game by KK Game Studio that is a combination of an FPS, RTS, and management sim.
In the game, you play as a fledgling warlord in a small nation that has been divided up by rival factions of bandits, mercenaries, insurgents, and revolutionaries. You can check out the launch trailer above.
Freeman: Guerrilla Warfare features a strategic layer where you recruit and outfit soldiers, improve your bases, and attack and defend territory. When your armies engage in combat, Freeman enters a real-time tactics phase where you can direct your troops around large maps like in an RTS, or directly participate in the battle from an FPS view.
Freeman: Guerrilla Warfare is available on Windows PC via Steam for $24.99.
Here’s a rundown of the game:
Freeman: Guerrilla Warfare is set in a chaos filled world occupied by battling factions, bandits and warlords who seek to rule the world.
The game is about your career as a faction leader: Start with minimal assets, you need to make money, build an army, wage wars against other factions and eliminate your rival forces with thoughtful strategies and fine marksmanship and eventually conquer the world. The game provides a completely different shooter experience which strikes a balance between intense first-person action and general strategy.
The game’s innovative combat system blends tactical FPS with real-time strategy, allowing you to command an army, plan for tactics in the God view, while immersing in the intense firefight as a foot soldier, in the first person perspective.
- FPS meets Sandbox Strategy Game
Start your career with almost nothing, you must make money, recruit soldiers, loot villages, fight bandits, attack territories and dominate the world. The game is a combination of challenging action and a wider strategic theater.
- Shooter and Real-Time Strategy
Experience the unique combat system which blends real-time strategy with tactical first-person shooter. You are expected to strategically plan the movements and tactics of multiple squads in addition to having to be an eagle-eyed sharpshooter and possessing catlike reactions.
- Realistic Combat Simulation
The game is about realism. Killing 100 enemies with only a pistol is not possible. You will be challenged by highly intelligent AI that is capable of advanced tactical maneuvers such as flanking, surrounding and even fake retreating, almost like what you would experience in real combat. Only carefully planned tactics, equipment and cooperation between squads can bring you victory. Are you up to the challenge?
- High Re-playability
The random nature of starting points, enemy AI and objectives will make every battle feel different and challenging. There is no linear gameplay: You have the freedom to decide how to progress in the game, who to fight, what equipment and squads to use and how to dominate the world.
