Frozen Synapse 'Red' DLC arrives on iPad

Frozen Synapse's Red expansion is now available on iPad and Mode 7 is celebrating by offering the base game for 99 cents.


Mode 7 may be preparing to hit the gridiron, but they haven't forgotten their original top-down strategy game, Frozen Synapse. The developer is bringing the game's Red DLC to the iPad version today, adding in co-op play and a slew of other additions.

The Red expansion offers a new 15-mission single-player campaign, 10 single-player challenge missions, a new Upload multiplayer mode, a new riot shield unit, three mutator modifiers, and six new music tracks. If you want some mood lighting, the DLC will also include a new 'Red' mode that changes the game's color scheme into a completely different color. I want to say it turns the screen into some sort of chartreuse, but I don't think that's right. All single-player campaign missions will be playable in co-op, regardless of whether an expansion owner's partner has the Red DLC or not.

The Red DLC is available now for $2. To celebrate, Mode 7 has reduced the base game price to $0.99 on the App Store.

If PC is more your thing, Mode 7 is also offering a deep discount on Frozen Synapse's Steam version. Not only is it 80% off, but players can also try it out for free this weekend.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      Is the community still active for this game? I kinda regret not playing it that much back when it came out

        Seems pretty active. I turned on "looking for game" for 10 seconds yesterday and it put me in 3 matches.
