Frozen Cortex is a simultaneous #turnbased #strategy game from Mode 7, the creators of Frozen Synapse. #Mode7 have just announced a major singleplayer update, however, transforming the tactical futuresport strategy into more intense gameplay. You can play the beta version right now by opting using the instructions below.
In order to run the game on Steam, activate the beta. Right-click the game’s title, choose Properties, then Betas and select ‘staging2′. Once in the game “choose the middle Single player option (Global Cortex League) and then either choose Manager Easy or Manager from the next menu. Right now easy only allows you to see AI plans in matches”.
Also, when you purchase Frozen Cortex you get a free key for a friend with every purchase. A great deal for a competitive multiplayer, complex single player with three different league modes (including large-scale randomly generated league) meaning that you can experience your own brand of glory on the randomly-generated playfield.
“It’s pretty big – it has full AI simming of other matches, a salary cap, player bidding, injuries, player stats, AI strategy stettings, a 90 team college league with players leaving for a GCL draft, and more.”
Mode 7 are looking for lots of feedback to polish the game for proper release, so mention your comments on the Mode 7 forums. It’s great to see this level of post-release support – Cortex seemed like a game in search of an ideal mode and this may well be the answer.
