In Sole Survivor, players select a single unit from a list of over 20 (including mammoth Tanks, Rocket bikes, Commandos, Artillery and many more.) Once selected, players command their units in a fast paced contest of combat against other live players. To gain a competitive advantage and customize their units, players race to find power-up crates scattered throughout the battlefield. The crates enhance unit characteristics, including speed and weapon strength, and provide other benefits, such as first aid and stealth capabilities. Players should be warned, however, that some crates contain booby traps that can damage or even destroy their unit.
In Sole Survivor, players are free to engage one another in battle join teams with other players. Sole Survivor will also feature a skirmish mode against computer opponents to allow players to sharpen their skills before going online. Westwood is planning to support Sole Survivor with exciting contests, competitions and promotions.
