In 2013 Plarium launched Soldiers Inc.™ on Facebook. Soldiers Inc. takes players to the year 2019, where a team of hired mercenaries have been recruited to claim as much of the fictional Republic of Zandia as possible.
As we look back on 2013, we see a landmark period in which Plarium brought hardcore social gaming to a new level. With over 12 million players already on board, and over 1 billion hours of gameplay already registered, Soldiers Inc. has certainly made its mark as one of the most notable games of the last 6 months.
For those who haven’t yet enlisted in Soldiers Inc. We wanted to share some of the most notable features in this RTS (Real Time Strategy) title, such as the Bunker, Resource Depots, Combines, Mining Complexes and many more.
Bunkers - This is the only safe place in Zandia! Your Base's emergency survival bunker is a reinforced subterranean shelter where you may secure your fighting forces and Resources in the event of an attack.
Resource Depots - Whoever maintains control of the Depots has a major battlefield advantage. Different Depots produce different amounts of various resources per hour, depending on their size.
Combines – This is where the magic really happens. Combines allow players to join forces as a team and operate under a well-organized command structure with one name, insignia, and hierarchy. These Combines may pool their Resources to battle their rivals for positions in the game rankings, coordinate attacks against their common enemy, and train new recruits.
Mining Complexes – These are the primary objective of the conflict in Zandia. These heavily fortified ore extraction and processing centers are the key to controlling Zandia's vast mineral wealth, and by extension, allow gamers to rise to dominance within the gameplay. Only your Combine's ability to capture, hold and expand these Mining Complexes will determine your collective territory and standing among your rivals. Mining Complexes are too valuable for a single player to ever lay claim on them. Only a Combine working as a team will have any chance of controlling them.
Combine Attacks – Players that are part of a Combine may deploy Combine Attacks against hardened targets like Mining Complexes or Depots.
Combine Bonuses - These are awarded to a Combine collectively upon the successful completion of a Combine Achievement. These Bonuses can take the form of ranking point boosts in the Combine Rankings, or Combine-wide Bonuses to Unit or Base statistics for all participating Combine Members. Combine Bonuses earned while a member of one Combine are non-transferable, and cannot be retained upon leaving that Combine. Combine Members joining a Combine after it has earned an Achievement will not enjoy the benefits of any existing Combine Bonuses.
Global Missions - Global missions are optional missions Commanders may choose to participate in, in return for free Units, Drill Instructors, special items and/or other forms of compensation. Most will usually involve engaging in Search and Destroy missions within an allotted time to recover mission items.
Special Equipment - Mobile Autonomous Recovery and Salvage (MARS) vehicles are unarmed robotic systems capable of automatically conducting battlefield repairs on Automated Artillery and Gun Turrets under combat conditions. The more MARS units deployed around your base, the faster your Turrets and Artillery can return to active duty. MARS Vehicles do not consume resources and cannot be destroyed or damaged.
This is just a brief overview of the updates Plarium has launched on Soldiers Inc. over the past six months! 2014 is looking to be an explosive year within Soldiers Inc as there’s plenty more in the works.
Soldiers Inc is now available to play for free on Facebook.
