Lead a squad of angry New Yorkers as they defend the streets against a communist invasion in this action-packed game.
In an alternate universe in which the Soviet Union won the Cold War, ordinary citizens have begun to take up arms against the Red Menace. You are Christopher Stone, an average New Yorker who knows his way around his hometown subway system and packs serious firepower.
Heavy weapons like machine guns, rocket-propelled grenades and Molotov cocktails become tools of democracy as you form a squad of freedom fighters.
As a born leader, you will recruit and guide as many as 12 like-minded soldiers. Recruiting is done using a charisma-based point system. When you rescue freedom fighters, capture vital installations or perform heroic deeds, you will earn Charisma Points that are used to recruit more men.
Fierce fighting rages in subways, buildings and out on the streets. As time passes and the seasons change, New York City will look more and more like a war zone. You will also witness weather effects, smoke and detailed lighting effects.
Publisher Electronic Arts promises intuitive controls that allow you to execute critical tasks with the touch of a button. Multiplayer split-screen support is planned for up to four players.
Freedom Fighters sounds like an exciting mix of squad-based combat and intense guerrilla warfare. Check back for more info as the release date approaches.
