Description

Freedom Force return in this sequel to 2002’s original superhero strategy game. Fighting Nuclear Winter’s menace in *snowy* Cuba, Freedom Force unwittingly allows the conquered Timemaster to fall into the wrong hands. The resulting time crisis twists reality around Freedom Force, plunging them into an alternate 1963 where the “original Axis of Evil” won WWII.

Now Freedom Force must set things straight. Traveling through time and taking on the Axis stretches the team to its limits, but the Golden Age was a time of heroes as well as villains. Blackjack, Tricolour, and the Sky King are just some of the new heroes available to combat the combined menace of Fortissimo, Blitzkrieg, and Red Sun. Plus a revamped character creation module makes it easier to send homemade heroes into the fray.

Retaining the original game's superhero squad-based strategy set-up, this sequel features cutting edge graphics, more characters, story-based multiplayer missions, and a Rumble Room where players can jump straight to the action.
