Tin Man Games Announces June Launch of NEON Squad Tactics for Meta Quest

Indie developer Tin Man Games has announced the impending launch of its new tactical turn-based VR experience, NEON Squad Tactics. The game will be available on Meta Quest devices via the Meta Store from 13 June 2024.

Set in UltraCity, a cyberpunk metropolis controlled by powerful corporations, NEON Squad Tactics invites players to become elite bounty hunters. The game features strategic battles and a dynamic storyline where players’ decisions shape the city’s destiny. The VR experience features a hyper-retro 90s aesthetic and a modern synthwave soundtrack – always a classic when done right. Players can engage in the single-player campaign or join up to four friends in online co-op mode – but regardless, strategic thinking and teamwork are essential as you coordinate your squad’s actions in turn-based tactical battles.

In NEON Squad Tactics, players assume the role of elite Operators, projecting their consciousness into a team of skilled heroes known as the NEON Squad. The game’s interface is set within a virtual bar, where a holographic table allows players to navigate key locations and undertake missions for powerful corporations under the guidance of an enigmatic Handler.

Creative Director Neil Rennison expressed excitement about the upcoming launch:

As we enter our final phase of pre-launch development for NEON Squad Tactics, we are so excited to finally confirm the release June 13 release date for NEON Squad Tactics. We have taken all of our turn-based development experience and created a really exciting, tactical VR experience. Expect whacky characters, strategic thinking and a lot of turn-based action, all set to a fantastic synthwave soundtrack composed by leading artists. Grab your VR headset and get ready to enter UltraCity!

  • Turn-based tactics action game with a compelling single-player campaign and Drop in / Drop out multiplayer missions for up to 4 players.
