KillHouse Games have now re-announced Door Kickers 2: Task Force North, the sequel to their excellent 2014 tactics game.
Originally announced in 2016, with it due out cross-platform that same year. Sadly it seemed to just sort of vanish for some time—but it's back! KillHouse freshly announced it yesterday with a brand new trailer:
- Top Down view, optimized for tactical analysis
- Real Time gameplay with pause-at-will to analyse and change plans
- No turns, no hexes, no action points - just freeform planning
- Realistic but action packed
- Non-linear levels, multiple paths and break-any*-wall kinda freedom
- Multiple units to play with, each with their distinct playing style
- Weapon customization
- Destructible environment
- Single Player & Online Cooperative Multiplayer (2 players)
- Custom-built 3D engine, allowing for increased moddability
- Mission editor
In regards to Linux support, it's still going to happen and it has not been dropped from their plans. They said that "Task Force North is planned to release on Steam Early Access (Windows) in Q2 2020, with other OS versions coming later once development stabilizes". Checking in with the developer, they clarified to us on Twitter that does mean Linux just not right away. They also mentioned this on their Steam forum post.
