Back from 2001 is N-Fusion’s classic squad-based WWII title. This time from Ziggurat Interactive, Deadly Dozen Reloaded is coming up this year.
Deadly, not Dirty
Along with the redone looks, Deadly Dozen will also feature a host of improvements for the Reloaded edition. Those include:
- Reimagined for the Modern Era: Graphics and audio aren’t the only things that have been updated. Enemy AI is now more sophisticated, making fights more engaging, and reworked vehicle physics make driving to objectives more fun and realistic.
- 10 Giant Missions: Large, faithfully recreated maps containing objectives that can be tackled in any order at the player’s discretion. Each mission will typically take over one hour to complete on normal difficulty.
- Customizable Loadouts: Eleven different weapons — six American and five German — and seven types of equipment, including first aid kits, binoculars, and a variety of explosives, allow players to customize squad members to suit their play style and the mission at hand
- No More Permadeath: Players can experience heart-pounding escapes with half of their team, and fallen squad-mates will recuperate for the next mission. No more reloading save files!
The above is from the press release.
There’s no launch date just yet for Deadly Dozen Reloaded, but we do know to expect it some time this spring. And when it does arrive, it’ll be for both consoles and the PC.
Personally I hope permadeath is an option rather than it just being removed. I’d rather all the choices and consequences each mission matter.
