Mode 7, the studio behind Frozen Synapse, today announced a new title with a sports twist: Frozen Endzone. The strategy game has two teams attempt to use the randomly-generated stadium terrain to their advantage to run the ball into their opponents' endzone. It's like football, played by robots, with random elements.
The announcement boasts a full single-player (Skirmish and Season) along with multiplayer, customization options, and a trance soundtrack. It's aiming to launch in 2014, but a beta is "almost certainly" coming this year. It's planned for PC, Mac, and Linux, with a hint that other platforms could be added. It utilizes a simultaneous turn-based system, which Mode 7 says it feels is a "massively under-used mechanical structure."
The game is attempting to get on Steam Greenlight, but the announcement mentions that Mode 7 won't be using Kickstarter to fund it. Check out the trailer below.
