Door Kickers 2 Will Release In Early Access This Year

Door Kickers 2 was very briefly announced two weeks ago, but now there’s more information beyond “it exists”. The sequel to top-down breach-and-clear-‘em-up is subtitled “Task Force North” and trades urban environments for a military Special Operations team fighting in a fictional “Iraqi-like” country. It’ll be 3D, there’ll be co-op, and it’ll enter Early Access in September or October of this year. More details below.

Door Kickers 2 In Development, Switches To 3D

At the start of the Christmas holiday, I looked upon my list of installed Steam games and considered what new games I might finally have time for. Then I instantly opened up Door Kickers [Steam page], a game I’d played a dozen times before. It was the only PC game I played over the break.

Good news, then! Door Kickers 2 is in development.

Have You Played… Door Kickers

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

I don’t know when I’ll ever get another first-person experience like SWAT 4, but Door Kickers [official site] is pretty close. It’s played from above, but you command a squad of well-trained soldiers to breach and clear rooms full of criminals, and it’s every bit as smart, tactical and exciting as its inspirations.

Cruisin’ For A Brusin': Door Kickers Adds New Campaign

It seems like only yesterday that I was writing about Door Kickers, a top-down game of tactical breach and clear maneuvers. Actually it was two days ago though, when we named it our favourite tactical game of the year. Now an update for the game has been released which adds a new campaign called Terror At Sea.

Is it about being trapped on a small raft with me while I feel sea sick? I can’t be sure it’s not, as I haven’t played it yet.

The Bestest Best Tactics Of 2014: Door Kickers

Long for a tactical diversion fit for a five minute or five hour play session? Door Kickers will satisfy, by being able to meet the needs of genre-newcomers, the time-poor, as well as those who know their crisscross from their buttonhook.

Graham: Door Kickers can be simply described as being like Frozen Synapse with a lick of Rainbow Six paint, but it’s also a lesson in the power of theme and setting.

Impressions: Door Kickers

Tactics!
Screenshots are such liars. I loaded up Door Kickers with the assumption that I was about to play Frozen Synapse in riot gear. It is not that. It’s more mobile and (currently) not quite as tactical than the obvious touchstone, but closer to a fuzzy, top-down reinterpretation of SWAT 4. Somewhere in between those two tactical titan’s crossfire is where Door Kickers cowers. It’s just popped up on Steam’s Early Access and I’ve spent a few hours with it.
