Offworld Industries has announced that their realistic military shooter Squad will be arriving on Steam Early Access on 15 December 2015, with pre-orders starting now through 30 November 2015.
The Steam Early Access launch will include two massive maps that are the equivalent of a 16km square region, one set in Afghanistan and the other in a firing range/close quarter combat training map, which the developers call "rehabilitation of gamers who are unaccustomed to proper tactical squad based CQB gaming." The Early Access build will include two new factions and four gameplay modes which include Advance and Secure, Conquest, Insurgency, and Territory control.
The Squad Leader Tier pre-order pack is part of the game's Founders program, and will include the following perks:
- Founder Patch in-game on your soldier (Delivery date TBD)
- Founder Tag in the Community Forums
- Exclusive Alternate Weapon Skins (AK74 and M4)
- Digital copy of the Squad soundtrack
- In-game name in Credits
Squad completed a successful Kickstarter crowdfunding back in June 2015, and gamers interested in checking out the game can visit the official site here.
