The second co-op campaign map released by Zero Point Software expands the game universe even further by adding stealth gameplay element. Players are tasked to infiltrate Starcrown Aerospace industrial-military base and steal important research data.
In Starcrown it is all about brain over brawn. Going all guns crazy will not work in this scenario. The Interstellar Marine s will have to perform a sneaky surgical strike to retrieve research whose contents are unknown and will have importance in the upcoming missions.
Inspired by Half-Life, System Shock 2 and Rainbow Six, Interstellar Marines will offer a mix of cooperative, roleplaying and tactical first person shooter gameplay. Players take on roles of elite soldiers that have joined Project IM, a top secret military program whose goal is to protect humanity from forces outside of our solar system.
Starcrown, a second co-op campaign map released by Zero Point Software, along with five additional challenge-style maps brings the number of already released co-op maps to seven in a few months.
