Foresight Games have announced Project Haven, a turn-based tactical RPG for Windows PC via Steam.
Set in the near-future dystopia of Haven City, players will be tasked with managing the Steel Dragons mercenary outfit as they accept contracts from a variety of rival factions. You can check out the announcement trailer above.
Here’s a rundown of the game:
You command the Steel Dragons, a mercenary outfit fighting for survival in the harsh, urban near-future that is Haven City. Select and control squads of mercs as they battle gangsters, rival mercs and corrupt government forces in a bid to make ends meet, and make a difference where you can. Manage your crew’s stats and gear, wrangle a diverse range of merc personalities, and conquer the deep tactical elements that make Project Haven a standalone turn-based combat experience.
- MANUAL OVERRIDE ON AIMING: Our unique free-aiming system allows you to take control of a merc and manually shoot from 3rd person view. With our modular damage feature, you can wing your enemy to reduce their accuracy, shoot them in the legs to slow their movement, or go for sweet extra damage with a headshot.
- FLEXIBLE TACTICAL COMBAT: Hunker down or lean into cover. Use stealth to avoid detection. Throw grenades or heal your mercs. Hack locks or demolish walls to get to your enemies. And all the while your mercs have free movement, navigating without restrictive square or hex grids.
- MATURE STORYTELLING: Learn the harsh realities of a seething megacity full of desperation and dark secrets. Witness the gritty lives of mercs and NPCs, and experience a story-driven campaign with fully voiced and motion-captured characters and cinematics.
- RPG CHARACTER BUILDING: Improve your mercs’ attributes and unlock new skills as they gain experience and level up.
- ADVANCED WEAPON MECHANICS: Magazine management, chambered bullets, and different types of ammo for different situations. Calibers and ammunition types affect how far and how well projectiles penetrate and damage the target.
- MANY HOURS OF GAMEPLAY: Several unique maps with diverse enemies and multiple ways to achieve your objectives, making for substantial replayability.
- CO-OP AND SKIRMISH MODE: Play with up to 3 friends in a turn-based online co-op campaign mode, or skirmish in randomly generated maps, fighting against friends or AI, either alone or in a co-op game.
