If you happen to own a copy of of The Red Solstice, Ironward and Nkidu’s ambitious early access tactical action strategy game, you might be pleased to hear that the latest v1.78 update is live and packing a lot of new content.
Players will now be able to diversify their groups a bit more with the addition of female marines to the squadron. In addition, The Red Solstice now features 100% more gameplay due to the brand new map that is now available for seasoned players.
If you’re a fan of the classic Warcraft 3 custom maps from days past, Ironward sends along an interestng tidbit about their team.
The Red Solstice is quite strongly inspired by classic Warcraft 3 and Starcraft II custom maps like Night of the Dead. In fact, one of the lead devs at Ironward (The Red Solstice developer), Hrvoje Horvatek, helped develop Night of the Dead: Special Ops, a mod aimed at veterans of NotD2.
We recently previewed The Red Solstice on the game’s launch day and walked away very impressed with the game even in it’s initial form.
