Released for PC on April 11, 2017, Shock Tactics is now available for digital download on Steam and via physical copies in stores.
Shock Tactics is a turn-based strategy game developed by Point Blank Games. Differing from most strategy games of its kind, Shock Tactics uses a cover system, making the utilization of the terrain vital to achieving victory against the enemy.
The game takes place in uncharted space territory (the planet Hephæst), where players lead their allies on missions to acquire and study alien technology while combatting hostile forces (the Imperial Consortium, pirates, and aliens). Over time, players can upgrade their base and unlock better technology and abilities for their soldiers. The game was released with a brand-new launch trailer, which can be viewed below.
