Description

The sequel to the original Laser Squad focuses entirely on 1vs1 tactical combat. Units from four different races can be selected: The Human Marines, the artificial Machina, the mysterious Grays and the aggressive Spawn.

At the beginning of a game, units are deployed, each with a different cost of force points. Once deployed, orders will be issued (and tested) each turn. Concluding the turns of all players, the game then "go live" for 10 seconds, wherein all orders are played out and the results determined. Each player is given a variety of movement options, such as stances and stances, such as whether to halt, retreat or continue moving when an enemy is spotted. There are options for direct fire, terrain fire and opportunity fire. The progress of the battle can be reviewed at any time using the VCR-style controls.

Laser Squad can be played as single player campaigns or a hotseat game. Internet gameplay is based on a per-month subscription, with 3 months being included out of the box.
