The Red Solstice 2: Survivors is a survival strategy game developed by Ironward. It is the sequel to 2014's The Red Solstice. RS2 continues the plot of the first installment, introduces new gameplay features, and improves on the previously implemented mechanics. The game is set in the year 117 After Earth, when the mutant monsters known as STROL continues to ravage Earth. As the leader of the Cell, a special task force, the player must battle the aggressors, either in single-player or in cooperative online multiplayer. Red Solstice 2: Survivors received generally favorable reviews, in which the critics praised the game's visuals, tactical action gameplay, and the progress made in comparison to the original game.
The gameplay of RS2 blends several genres, including real-time strategies, RPG, and isometric action games. The core gameplay feature of Red Solstice 2 is the exploration of the planet and fighting the mutant invasion of the STROL. The player can use the real-time strategy controls to plan certain actions, setting traps and flanking the oncoming enemy forces. The enemy won't stay idle to the player's actions as the biomass infestation will adapt to their tactics, forcing them to employ different strategies to survive.
Missions are a-go
Red Solstice 2 features three different types of missions. In Exploration, the player traverses the game's map in search of necessary resources. Stealth missions require them to complete objectives without alerting the mutants. Survival tasks pit the player against the overwhelming enemy forces. Each mission requires the player to use different skills and tactics to succeed.
The science of survival
Researching and gathering resources is another important aspect of Red Solstice 2: Survivors. While exploring the planet, the player will gather materials that they can use to research and upgrade new tech that will help them against the mutants. The tech includes powerful weapons - stationary cannons, energy guns, armored suits, etc.
The band of survivors
Red Solstice 2 features six unique classes, each equally necessary on the battlefield. These are Assault, Heavy Support, Demolition, Marksman, Medic, and Recon. Each class has different skills, which provide an additional advantage and new strategic solutions. Thanks to the implemented cooperative multiplayer mode, the player can share responsibilities controlling each class and working together.
It is the year 117 After Earth. The spread of mutant virus STROL continues.
