"Laser Squad meets Tron" is Richard Cobbett's summary, anyway. Anyone else excited by this? Apparently an embargo is lifting today so we should be hearing more about it soon. If you're not familiar with Laser Squad, think top-down Rainbow Six, or simultaneous turn-based UFO Enemy Unknown (just the combat bits, mind).
Looks rather promising - if you pre-order you apparently get access to the beta and also a spare beta key to give to a friend so once I get paid at the weekend i'm definitely going to give it a go. Used to love having play-by-email rounds of Laser Squad Nemesis with my mates, hope this is at the same level.
Here's the most recent trailer:
