While small campaigns in BBs would be great - they are highly unlikely, as team struggles with development in terms of pushing release date.
I am all for it - in later expansion packs. Even if they would develop STORY further and bring gameplay.
As always, I remind people how laser squad had 7 quite different stories + 12 unofficial ones:
(watch out ZX Speccy downloads)
“The Assassins” - The mission’s objective is to assassinate weapons manufacturer Sterner Regnix. The player will lead a small squad of troops on an infiltration mission, dealing with droid patrols.
“Moonbase Assault” - A small squad must penetrate the Omni Corporation moon base, via the airlocks, and destroy their computer systems.
“Rescue from the Mines” - After a routine mission goes badly wrong, three members of a squad are held prisoner in the Metallix Corp mines. A squad of troops must negotiate the mine complex, free all three prisoners and escape.
“The Cyber Hordes” - A small squad must defend a station from the attack of an advancing droid squad invasion. The base holds seven stabilizer cores vital to the planet’s stability and the droids have focused their efforts on these targets.
“Paradise Valley” - Following on from “The Cyber Hordes”, the destruction of the stabilizer cores has left the colony in ruins and assault ships hover above waiting for the time of attack. To prevent capture of the blueprints for an advanced starfighter, the data has been transferred onto a portable security device and a squad is given the task of escaping from the colony with the device.
“The Stardrive” - A group of mercenaries have captured a stardrive controller. A squad must go to their hidden base and retrieve the device.
“Laser Platoon” - A free for all deathmatch as equal teams are pitted against each other. Large (10-man) squads, with reinforcements arriving frequently, hunt down the equally equipped opposition.
- Blue Planet
- Rescue Rangers
- The Aliens
- Coal Corp
- Dead City
- The Melter Squad
- The Assasins 2
- Hostile Takeover
- Return To The Moonbase
Similarly, they could also be UNRELATED to main course.
Or even “Laser Squad reboots”
Would buy em! But much, much later!
