'Gray Zone' Leaving On Steam Early Access, Full Launch Next Week

by Rainier on Dec. 6, 2022 @ 4:40 p.m. PST

Gray Zone is a narrative driven tactical RTS game, combining the best elements of classic RTS titles as well as incorporating RPG aspects.

Gray Zone is an odyssey of a slave who turned against his masters, set in our galaxy hundreds of years from now. Expect memorable characters, fun dialogs and lots of action!

Gray Zone combines the best elements from classic strategy games of the past, whilst adding in extra elements such as tactical mode, new physics, hero customization and many more.

Travel many years into the future and embark on the great adventure of Valern, a slave in the hands of a corrupt government who's destined for great things. Explore colonized planets of our galaxy, worlds rich in animals, creatures and characters. Help Valern face his foes who stand between him and the truth. Both in-game and cutscene dialogs are fully voiced in English.

In Gray Zone you command your heroes and other friendly units to avoid or defeat the enemy, to complete story objectives, mandatory or optional. You build fire teams, use machines, vehicles and weapons, collect and distribute items. Your goal is to choose the right combat strategy to minimize your losses whilst achieving a result. The game allows you to freeze time in "tactic mode", which gives you unlimited time to re-think your strategy and issue different orders to multiple units at one moment.

Available through Steam Early Access since April 30, 2020, Gray Zone will roll out its full release on December 16, 2022.

The new features contained in the final version of the game will consist of four episodic chapters with approximately twenty-five missions in total. 

If a player purchases a later chapter of the game without first purchasing the previous one, they will be able to watch a brief introduction comic story. Each episodic chapter can be played separately without requiring ownership of the preceding chapter.

Key Features:

  • unique mixture of some old school and fresh new mechanics
  • Unique enemies and boss encounters
  • Partially destructible environments
  • Eye-catching fauna and flora
  • Custom vision & elevation system
  • Stealth and cover-ups
  • Expect diversity in units, weapons, vehicles and machines
  • full real-time battles with a 'tactical pause' at your service.
  • Experience even more in the world of Gray Zone!

Gray Zone will be available for PC (Steam) on December 16, 2022.
