The beta version of the PC tactical military shooter includes the 20 km² island of Stratis, 20 weapons, 18 vehicles, three factions, eight showcase missions, four multiplayer scenarios, four challenges, the scenario editor and modding support.
The full game will include a massive Mediterranean sandbox of over 290 km², over 40 weapons and over 20 vehicles.
