Publisher Ubisoft has announced Toy Soldiers: War Chest. It’s the successor to the 2010 Xbox Live title, which was later ported to PC as well.
Toy Soldiers: War Chest will once more be a blend of tower defense and shooter. You’ll be able to set up defenses, such as cannons, mortars and planes, but you’ll also be able to embody one of these units and take control of the battlefield.
In this iteration, however, the normal war sceneries of the Great Wars will be appended with other toys. For instance, there is the Starbright army, along with Buddy Bears, Ponies and Pixies.
There will be four armies in total, with the two not mentioned here to be revealed soon. Additionally, more gameplay modes than just the wave mechanisms of tower defense will be announced in the future as well.
Toy Soldiers made quite a name for itself as a multiplayer title on Xbox Live. Sadly, the PC port missed out on that action, causing quite the uproar upon release.
Weirdly enough, this spurred developer Signal Studios to release the game one more time, this time through Early Access, with its multiplayer and downloadable content (DLC) intact. For the sequel, Signal Studios will be at the helm once more.
Toy Soldiers: War Chest will release on PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4 in early 2015. It doesn’t have a price point so far, but the previous title was never a pricey venture, so hopefully this game will follow suit.
We must admit that blasting pseudo-Care Bears to bits is something of a hidden fantasy.
