Description

TRS is going full release on 10 JUL, and I got my hands on the release version a bit early! The big difference is that now there's a single player campaign, which is what I delve into for this review. The systems are very innovative and cool. With some neat RPG aspects. For a video of the online co-op, check here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAP6b_A9su0 The Red Solstice is a tactical single player or 8 player co-op survival game set on Mars in the distant future. The game features hardcore survival and player interaction in dark science fiction setting. You will be able to select from one of the 8 classes, equip your marine out with your weapons of choice and co-operate with your team using advanced tactics to stay ahead of the enemy. Storm can get really bad, and you have to handle it! The game is real time with a top-down perspective and features randomized map features (items, missions, monsters) allowing for good replayability for every mission playthrough which may last up to an hour depending on your team's capabilities. This is a tactical game that involves a lot of action and shooting, but at the same time but tread carefully - ammunition and medical supplies are not unlimited and lacking in either will get you killed quickly. You must constantly manage you resources and scavenge if you have long term survival plans. As you play through your mission, the enemy swarms will get larger and harder to the point where you will be overwhelmed if you don't deal with them. You must constantly be on the move looking to accomplish your main and side objectives, as doing so successfully will reward you with ranks and medals. ___ ___ Want to help support my channel? - http://www.patreon.com/jester814 Check out my stream: http://www.twitch.tv/Jester814 Facebook(I actually check this one often): http://www.facebook.com/pages/Jester814/249522811833198 Twitter: https://twitter.com/Jester814 Steam(major stream events announced here): http://steamcommunity.com/groups/jester814 -FAQ: Q: Why is the video only in 360p? A: Because I make my videos available the instant they're done uploading, but it takes youtube time(up to several hours) to finish processing the videos in full HD. A lot of people either watch on platforms that 360p is fine, or simply don't mind the lower quality and want to watch the videos asap. Either watch in low quality or be patient. Q: What are your system specs? A: i5 Ivy Bridge 3570k; 120 gig SSD; 1tb Standard HD(for recording); 8 gigs ram; nVidia Geforce GTX 770 (I run ArmA anywhere between 20-60 FPS, on med-high settings) Q: What do you use for recording? A: Fraps for video and system audio; Audacity for personal audio. Q: Why don't you play in First Person? A: I'm a 3rd person gamer. I hate first person. It's unrealistically restricting. Please don't try to "convince" me otherwise as if I am unaware of the gaming style I prefer. Q: Were you in the Military? A: US Army 99-06, Radio Operator(25C). Non-Combat Veteran. Q: Is that AI or real people? A: If it's an ArmA Mission it's AI unless I very specifically state otherwise. The 506th doesn't PvP. Q: What ArmA 3 mods do you use? A: AiATP, RHS Escalation, CBA A3, TFAR, ACE3, cTab, FHQ Accessories, ASDG Joint Rails, DAR MAXXPROs, grace weapon sway fix, Ares, mrb A3 Voice Stop, Robert Hammer Pistols, Switch Weapons While Moving I am no longer using any iteration of JSRS due to the problems it causes on servers. It was discovered by me in Feb 2015 that all versions of JSRS for the past 4 years have been causing massive amounts of errors on dedicated servers so it has stopped being used and I don't use another sound mod. Q: Can I join your ArmA unit? A: 506th IR Realism Unit: http://www.506thIR.net (Must be 18 or older)
