RAD Soldiers is Now Available Worldwide!

We’re really pleased to announce that RAD Soldiers is out worldwide! You can download it for free here in the App Store, and be sure to watch the brand-new Launch Trailer.

We’ll soon be releasing a RAD Soldiers Tactics Guide, also free, including player tips and techniques from the development team.

RAD Soldiers is our first mobile title, and we’re the financier, developer, publisher and operator. Because we’re in complete control, we’ve completed five months of open public testing. We’ve tested, iterated, polished, and balanced, seven builds for five months, with players helping by completing 235,000 turns and peaking at 100,000 minutes per day.

Here’s what we’ve been up to during the extensive live testing since June:

What does it all mean?!

Community Question: Create a Class

Community, many team-based multiplayer games, including Splash Damage's own, feature character classes of some sort. Be it Medics that keep people alive, Engineers throwing turrets and mines everywhere, Field Ops calling in artillery strikes, or Operatives disguising themselves as the enemy, there's a combat role for a multitude of play styles.

So is there room for anything else? That's the topic of this week's Community Question, where you have free reign to invent a few classes of your own:

If you could add a character class/combat role, what would it be?

Post your suggestions in this week's Community Question thread. Keep in mind what they might bring to the battlefield and what play styles they'd be suitable for. We look forward to your replies!

Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars Online Services Currently Offline

The data center hosting the online services for Enemy Territory: QUAKE Wars was taken out by Hurricane Sandy a few hours ago and is currently offline. That unfortunately means you won't be able to sign into your online account, and multiplayer server authentication is unavailable too. An army of engineers and technicians is working to restore power and service, but it's understandably difficult due to the on-going conditions in the area. We'll keep an eye on things and will let you know when normal service resumes.

Community Question: Multiplayer Genres of Choice

Community, there's a huge amount of choice out there when it comes to games. Being a multiplayer-focused company, we're very interested to find out what sorts of games you like to play when you're craving a bit of competitive (or cooperative) online action. So, without further word-fluff, here's this week's Community Question:

What genre(s) do you currently play the most to get your multiplayer gaming fix?

We've got a list of the most obvious choices in this week's Community Question poll for you to vote on. We'd also love to know what games you're currently into, so please mention them in your replies.
