Ubisoft and Signal Studios has announced Toy Soldiers: War Chest, which will be the latest entry in the Toy Soldiers series and the first entry to come to next generation consoles, when it releases for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in early 2015.
Toy Soldiers: War Chest will have players face off against rival toy armies to see who can rule the battlefield. Four diverse armies will be available at launch, with two of those armies revealed today. Firstly, the proud and disciplined Kaiser returns to lead the German Empire with troops, weapons and turrets. While the Star Power army will be led by the whimsical yet dangerous, Starbright. Her army will include unicorn steeds, pixies, flying Pegasus and of course, laser-shooting teddy bears. Each army defends with their unique base turrets, combat and aerial vehicles and army units.
“Partnering with Ubisoft presented an opportunity to create the Toy Soldiers game we had always envisioned,” said D.R. Albright III, the Founder of Signal Studios. “Gamers of all ages can play as and face-off against toys familiar to them from their childhood to recreate the battles of their imaginations. Fans will have a great time learning how each army plays, and the individual strengths of their troops and weapons.”
“We strongly believe the universe of Toy Soldiers will offer a unique and intense gaming experience and we hope that fans will enjoy the deep game mechanics” said Thomas Painçon, EMEA Digital Publishing Director at Ubisoft. “Toy Soldiers is a unique blend of tower defense and strategy, and Toy Soldiers: War Chest makes the toy box eternal, letting gamers face off against rival toys and friends to determine which army will reign victorious.”
Toy Soldiers: War Chest will feature more heroes, missions and playable armies than any previous Toy Soldiers iteration, with additional game modes and expanded multiplayer and cooperative gameplay. Ubisoft also stated that two additional armies will be revealed closer to launch, with the trailer above ending with a small glimpse at their leaders silhouette.
