Toy Soldiers HD

Accelerate Games and Signal Studios have announced that Toy Soldiers HD will be released this August in Europe and North America.

Here’s a trailer and some more details:

What makes Toy Soldiers HD overhauled, upgraded, and better-than-ever you ask? Well, besides improved single and multiplayer gameplay, which we look forward to revealing soon as we march toward a June release, the HD version will include never-before played content, enhanced HD graphics (hence the name), and improved camera and sound. All previously released DLC will be included in the campaign flow.

Like many tower defense games, you strategically build your defenses while plotting your counter offensives. But unlike other tower defense games, Toy Soldiers HD gives you the ability to experience the battle from both top-down perspective and third-person perspective. Watch the action unfold or jump feet first into the boots of an infantryman and race across the battlefield dodging artillery while using a flamethrower to burn your enemies to a crisp. Mount your horse and charge the enemy head on with your cavalry. Pilot bombers and drop shells that pockmark the field below or strafe your opponent using biplanes. Go hands-on howitzers and mow down the enemy. 

Toy Soldiers HD is the digital embodiment of our childhood imagination. Green plastic toy army men. First and third-person perspective. Single and multiplayer gameplay. Strategic action tower defense action. These ingredients help make Toy Soldiers HD a lot of fun to play. But I would be remiss if I didn’t mention one more thing….authenticity.

The game combines the authentic sights and sounds of WWI to create an immersive experience for you. Feel the mechanical rumble and hear the hard crunch of the ground underneath the treads of approaching tanks. Try to survive the last second scream of falling artillery bombardments. Duck behind cover when you hear the staccato of machine gun fire, or the approaching sound of biplanes.

Signal Studios has taken creative steps to add levels of authenticity and fun that will transport you back to a time when you still played with little green toy soldiers in your bedroom.

Toy Soldiers HD (Switch – eShop) comes out this August in Europe and North America.
