Toy Soldiers HD is an upcoming release that has had a few date changes, and now Accelerate Games & Signal Studios Family has pinned down 21st October for its arrival. It's a re-release of an action / strategy hybrid that has given plenty of players fond memories, with this version throwing in all of the DLC of the original version.
As you can see in the walkthrough video above, it looks like it does a nice job of swapping between strategic views and some first-person action, all with the toy-like vibes you'd expect.
Explaining the latest delay, the developers say the following in the press release:
The new date is based on an issue of leaderboards displaying incorrectly, amongst some minor items we wanted to address, so instead of staggering our release, we decided it was best to hold all versions until we could release them on the same day. We are fixing the leaderboard right now. We are absolutely positive we will release them all on October 21.
We apologize for moving the date again, but we want you to fully experience the definitive edition. We want you to enjoy the improved performance, new single and multiplayer modes, and all the DLC.
Toy Soldiers HD is the digital embodiment of our childhood imagination mixed with strategy and military action. WWI era toy soldiers and military vehicles locked in strategic combat filled with authentic sights and sounds. The ability to jump between first-person POV shooter and third-person top-down strategic perspectives in both single and multiplayer battles.
This could be worth a look even for those that didn't experience Xbox Live Arcade original. Let us know in the comments if you're intrigued by Toy Soldiers HD.
