Utrecht, the Netherlands, May 2012 – ISOTX announced today that the highly-anticipated Scorched Earth expansion for the Iron Grip: Warlord multiplayer co-op game will be released on May 2. Scorched Earth will be available for Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 and can be purchased as DLC from Steam for $4.99 / £3.99 / €4.99 / 99 rubles.
Iron Grip: Warlord was one of the first games to combine elements of the massively popular genres of FPS and Tower Defense, and has sold over 75,000 copies since its release in 2008. In Scorched Earth, the small group of still defiant Atelians is under increasing pressure from the imposing Confederacy. A number of exciting weapons, enemy characters and units have been added, including airstrikes and the Deathhand Missile Launcher. Confederate spies lurk amidst the rebel ranks waiting to stab Atelians in the back, and the race is on to hunt down Confederate officers whilst defending strongholds against massed hordes of infantry and machinery. As players embark upon their objectives, they will discover new Atelian resources, including a powerful rocket launcher and a propaganda radio to incite Confederate units to indiscriminately attack everything around them.
Deathmatch Game Mode
In response to popular fan demand, an exciting new Deathmatch PvP game mode will be implemented in Scorched Earth. Player will battle against Player for supremacy on the maps where they once fought side by side. Demonstrating great skill and combat prowess by killing an opponent using weaker or more challenging weapons will award extra points. The player with the highest score at the end of the round is declared the winner. Players who battle on the official Warlord servers will have their scores added to the Deathmatch Hall of Fame at www.igwdeath.com. Top the leaderboard to win a Deathmatch Champion T-Shirt and literally wear your spoils on your sleeve!
