Frozen Synapse Prime heading to Steam on November 14th
Double Eleven are pleased to announce that their critically acclaimed remake of Frozen Synapse, Frozen Synapse Prime (Prime), is coming to Steam in November!
With a visual overhaul, an entirely new multiplayer suite and brand new Steam exclusive content, Prime has something for fans old and new.
For those new to the game, Prime is an asynchronous turn-based strategy game that allows players to take on multiple matches simultaneously. It also features a rich single player campaign set within a dystopian future, where players take on the role of a tactician to a resistance group attempting to prevent an evil corporation from taking over a city. Players control an elite strike team of futuristic soldiers, from shotgunners and snipers to grenadiers and machine gunners.
In Prime, players on two separate teams plot paths and issue orders to their squad members, creating a plan on a turn-by-turn basis. They can simulate the plan before committing to it but players then commit to them fully; this is called “Priming” a turn. Both plans are then played out on procedural, 3D, destructible and customizable battlefields and the resulting combat ensues!
Double Eleven have added some brand new features to help players improve their planning and performance; Prime features new 3D cameras, providing a better perspective for planning, along with dynamic cinematic replays so players can re-watch their matches, analyse their planning post-battle and enhance their strategy for future matches. They’ve also added some brand new playable tutorials, tailored to the needs of both the seasoned strategy pro and the tactics novice.
Exclusively for Steam gamers is an entirely new Arena Mode. Arena matches are designed to challenge both fans and newcomers alike; encouraging players to change the way they strategize, changing how they combine the strengths of their units and utilize the surrounding terrain like never before.
Fans of the original Frozen Synapse and newcomers also have an opportunity to determine some of the new battlefields in Arena Mode. Double Eleven have already selected a few and are inviting people to head over to Steam to vote on the rest.
Prime will be available on Steam and other PC distribution sites from November 14th; The Prime Soundtrack will also be available, both on its own and in a Prime Soundtrack Edition bundle. All Prime products will have a one week 15% launch discount to sweeten the deal.
