Frozen Synapse 2 screenshot of the open-world city at night

Frozen Synapse 2 is a fairly challenging tactics game with a bit of an interesting twist: instead of having hand-crafted levels with somewhat predictable enemy positions and behavior, Frozen Synapse 2 is bringing the action into a vast, procedurally generated city. So in order to succeed you'll need to set up various bases and outposts, deploy your forces across the map, and naturally, engage in some good ol' tactical combat as you attempt to secure the city.

If you're wondering what all of this looks like in-game, allow me to share with you the recently posted trailer. It's fairly brief, but it should give you a pretty decent idea of what to expect from Frozen Synapse 2. Have a gander:

I haven't had the time to play it myself so take the following with a few grains of salt, but from what I've managed to learn it's a pretty good tactics game that unfortunately houses some rather nasty bugs. I've even seen a couple of complaints about the tutorial becoming impossible to complete because of crashes or UI issues, so whether you're a fan of tactics games or not, I would highly recommend you give Frozen Synapse a couple of weeks before trying it out. Chances are the developers will manage to fix most of the major issues by then, so you should get a much better picture of what it really has to offer.

If you would like to learn a little bit more about Frozen Synapse 2, as well as follow any future developer updates, you should head on over to either Steam or the official website. And just for good measure, I'll leave you with one of the latest and fairly lengthy gameplay previews. Enjoy!
