Angry Cat Studios and Firesquid, are thrilled to unveil their masterstroke, a classic tactical turn-based title, USC: Counterforce—the game’s entry into Early Access on Steam, this 25th of July, 2023. Players are invited to strategize, customize, and neutralize, stepping into the boots of elite commandos. The game promises an engaging narrative filled with alien threats and cosmic challenges.
Drawing inspiration from illustrious games like UFO/XCOM, Space Hulk, and the Aliens series, USC: Counterforce offers players the responsibility of controlling a team of armed commandos. Their mission, should they choose to accept it, is to investigate an ominous alien threat on planet M-8322. Leveraging USC: Counterforce’s sophisticated squad management interface and a versatile skill system, players are urged to master the art of combat, discover the perfect balance of skills, and stave off the alien invasion. And for those seeking shared glory, there’s an option to invite a friend to the battlefield in local co-op mode!
The Early Access version boasts four heart-stopping special operations and an endless supply of procedurally generated missions in Single Mission mode, offering enormous replayability. The developers, always attentive to their gaming community, will utilize players’ feedback as a compass, guiding continuous enhancements and updates to USC: Counterforce. They are determined to deliver a polished final version featuring an open-ended campaign mode with a gripping, non-linear storyline.
Players should gear up for the forthcoming update – the Defend the Base mode. They’ll be challenged to merge the excitement of base management with the strategic demands of a turn-based tactical defense.
