“There aren’t many first-person shooters combining or strongly focus on strategy and role-playing elements. In Freeman: Guerrilla Warfare, we managed to marry the essence of first-person shooter. Along with grand strategy and role-playing games. All into one unique hybrid game. We want to give players the freedom and challenge. While they choose their equipment, troops, tactics, enemies, and play-style.
Our goal is to provide our players with the first sandbox FPS. And a grand strategy hybrid game. Since this allows a player to experience shooters from an exciting new angle.
The game is not just a shooter; it is about taking the role of an army commander and every action that players make will influence the next steps of their career.” – says, Lead developer, Hai Ren
