'XCOM' -like strategy game up for beta ahead of release.
From Bohemia Interactive, "Arma Tactics is a turn-based close-combat strategy game, where the player takes control of a four-member Special Forces team. There are no given strategies, rails to move on, or paths to follow; it‘s up to the player to decide how he will play through both the story-driven missions and generated missions with randomized objectives. Whether using stealth or a more direct approach, players will need to use their strategic thinking and use both basic and advanced weaponry while facing many different opponents - ranging from unorganized local militia to smart and skilled mercenaries."
The game was released on mobile/tablet platforms in May, but the PC version is due for a series of upgrades including: "Amazingly visually enhanced (high-detailed textures, post effects, high-detailed light maps, enhanced shaders and shadows). Controls optimized for PC (mouse+keyboard) and full support for gamepad."
At only the $9, the game is available to buy now ahead of its October 1st release, and buyers will get immediate access to the game's beta.
