Frozen Synapse 2 kicking in the door to August

Turn-based tactical squad shooter Frozen Synapse 2 should launch some time in August, developers Mode 7 Games announced today, seven years after the first came out. The sequel is still focused on squad-based tactical action where all units and sides play their turns out simultaneously, but now it's built into an overarching strategic level of protecting a whole procedurally-generated futurecity and placating its many factions.…

Shock! Horror! Frozen Synapse 2 delayed into 2018

While a delay has seemed clear as the year ticked down, developers Mode 7 have now made that official. Frozen Synapse 2…

Flame on: Frozen Synapse 2’s tactical weaponry

Frozen Synapse 2 [official site] continues to be one of the more exciting games on the horizon, which is a relief given that I'm quoted saying almost exactly that in the latest trailer. It's the AI factions and simulated city that acts as a backdrop to the tactical action that I'm most excited about, but the good ol' tactical combat of the original game is…

Apocalyptic Incursions: Frozen Synapse 2 Dev Video

Frozen Synapse 2 [official site] is the game I'm most looking forward to this year. Yes, there's the not insignificant matter of Civ VI out there on the horizon, but there's something about the combination of Laser Squad and X-COM Apocalypse that really gets me hot and bothered. In case the Apocalypse connection weren't already explicit enough - the simulated faction-filled city as backdrop to…

From Alpha Centauri To Apocalypse: The Design And Inspirations Behind Frozen Synapse 2

Frozen Synapse 2 [official site] is, without a doubt, one of the most exciting games I've ever seen.

The simple fact is, it ticks so many boxes in…

Frozen Synapse 2 Reveals Gorgeous Procedural Cities

We learned that Frozen Synapse 2 [official site] was in development last month and now we know what it is. Yes, it's a tactical combat game, featuring customised squads controlled using a simultaneous turn-based system. But what about this open-world malarkey that was promised? It looks like the gorgeous offspring of Syndicate Wars and Introversion's cancelled Subversion, which was set to feature procedurally generated cities…

Open World Tactics: Frozen Synapse 2 Announced

What a time to be alive. Not a moon pie in sight but 2016 is already looking like a fantastic smorgasbord of tactical treats. It's early February and yet we've already seen XCOM 2 and Darkest Dungeon. Now, to make my turn-based existence even more exciting, Mode 7 have announced a full-blown sequel to the supremely entertaining Frozen Synapse . Rather than going with Endzones…
