They opted to hold all version releases over a staggered release so that everyone can enjoy the game on all formats come release day. The developers are working on the leaderboard issue at the time of writing and are “absolutely positive” about an all-formats release date of October 21st.
About Toy Soldiers HD
Fans of action strategy and third-person shooters both get to scratch their itch with Toy Soldiers HD. This award winning remake of the Xbox Live Arcade 2010 and PC 2012 original from Signal Studios sees players protecting their toy box by commanding antique WW1 toy soldiers in a whimsically presented diorama of the battlefields of Europe.
Overhauled and upgraded graphically and at its core, the game features new and improved controls, as well as new skins, content and enhanced game modes for the player. All original DLC are available, and the game comes complete with new levels.
Besides being able to seamlessly take over the heavy artillery guns and flamethrowers, you are also able to take to the skies in WW1 bombers and bi-planes such as the Sopwith Camel or the Red Baron style German fighters. Back down in the trenches you will be levelling up your artillery and soldiers to prevent the invading enemies from taking your toy box.
This unrelenting action sets Toy Soldiers HD apart from other RTS or military shooters, not least because it does it with a tongue-in-cheek you cannot help but love.
The game’s attraction is not just the nostalgia for PC gamers, and the remaining Xbox 360 gamers who remember the original XBLA game. Toy Soldiers HD has amassed a whole new army of followers and fans because the game truly is special at its heart. When a game developer makes a game for a market, you can usually tell. When a game is made from the heart, with the player’s experience in mind, you know it will be a winner. The latter is true here with Toy Soldiers HD, being made by the original studios who are the most passionate fans of the Toy Soldiers series.
Toy Soldiers HD will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC, - also playable on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S - and will be a digital only release on October 21st 2021.
