1971 Project Helios, Madrid-based developer RecoTechnology’s upcoming turn-based strategy title that combines modern warfare military tactics and close-quarters combat, will be making its way to PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC on June 9th.

The game, which takes place in a frozen dystopian world, allows players to take control of eight unique characters who’ve come together to rescue a kidnapped scientist who holds the key to saving the planet from the clutches of a powerful paramilitary group. Throughout their journey, they’ll battle a variety of enemies ranging from elite soldiers to savage scavengers, investigate military outposts and secretive cults, and manage limited resources in an icy wasteland.

You can find the game’s key features below courtesy of the developer:


  • Fight in turn-based tactical combats against three different factions, each one with their own units, strengths, and weaknesses.
  • Explore the vast world of 1971 Project Helios. From military facilities to medieval dungeons, each one of them is full of secrets awaiting to be discovered.
  • Improve your character´s skill trees: unlock, improve and match different skills to create the perfect character.
