DLC often runs the risk of splintering a multiplayer community, but Mode 7 Games is cannily and kindly dodging that with the 'Red' expansion for Frozen Synapse. Released yesterday for $9.99, Red adds campaign co-op, more missions, a new multiplayer mode, a riot shield unit and more--which anyone can play with as long as the other player has bought the DLC.

Red adds two-player co-op for all single-player campaign missions, of which there are 15 new ones, and 10 extra challenge missions. You'll also find new music, an 'Upload' multiplayer mode, the riotous riot shield wielder, three new mutators, and, naturally, a mode to turn its blue world red.

You can buy Red direct from Mode 7 for $9.99, but it's only $8.49 on Steam for the next week. Steam's also offering 50% off the base game, making it $12.49 for two copies, plus discounts on various collections of Frozen Synapse bits and bobs.

      So awesome. I wonder if the redness can be disabled. Seems like it might be an eye strain compared to the blue.

      And for god's sakes, where is the iPad version? This game is so perfect for it.

      What ever happened to the tournament for that game that one shacker organized? I think only the first round was completed and it kind of just disappeared.

        I bloody won the first round too. I was sad that it fizzled out.

          I was sad too because he never did a recap of my replay consisting of the best replay ever in a shack Frozen Synapse tournament.

          I would love to continue the tournament (well we'd have to start it over)

          It's just hard to get people to actually play their matches on time. We'd need a policy in place for no-shows.

      Does this game still have a surprisingly long load time when you mark that your turn is over? I found this to be a huge turn off in the game...
