Frozen Synapse: Red Adds Co-op, Way More Content

Frozen Synapse is a very cool indie strategy title that came out last year, but developer Mode 7 wasn’t satisfied with its extensively complex and rewarding office firefight gameplay. Instead, it just plopped out Frozen Synapse: Red, a DLC pack that reshuffles the whole game to include cooperative play.

That means you can attack all of Frozen Synapse’s complex and brainy missions with a friend, and on top of that, the DLC pack includes another 15 levels for your enjoyment. Oh, and there are a bunch of other new things — like mutators, multipalyer modes, the addition of riot shields (Oh s–t, you’ll be saying when you realize how that’s going to screw with you in-game) and deployable cover, and a recasting of the whole game in red rather than blue. It’s cooler than you think.

But even if you don’t purchase the Red DLC — it’s $9.99, currently on sale slightly on Steam — and you own Frozen Synapse, you still get something for free care of Mode 7. That’s the local Hotseat multiplayer mode, plus the ability to use non-randomized multiplayer maps and set timed turns (because those can go on a bit).

AND — Mode 7 says that DLC owners and non-DLC owners will be able to play with each other in multiplayer without any divisions, including in co-op. Which is basically the coolest thing ever.

You can grab Frozen Synapse and its DLC on Steam right here. It’s on sale. Check out our review for more.
