Special Forces: Team X (STX) is a team centric 3rd Person cover based shooter, featuring brutal firefights between elite squads of special force operatives. STX takes place in tomorrow’s world, one that is infested with conflicts amongst the geo-political power brokers. A world in which conventional warfare is dead, diplomacy is an affront to the hidden agenda of national objectives, and global strategy is accomplished using clandestine military power.
Initially revealed at by G4 at Gamescom in July, it has since won two show awards at the Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle in August for “Best Surprise Reveal” and runner up for “Best Shooter”.
Created by world renowned independent developer Zombie Studios, STX puts you in the role of an elite soldier in a Special Forces squad. The game features a unique map selection system, enabling players to shape the battlefield by selecting individual environmental pieces, resulting in over 100 combinations of combat zone. STX allows players to vault, mantle and traverse through the environment with the game’s intuitive cover and clambering system.

STX supports asymmetric game play with 2-4 teams and 5 frenetic game types. Cooperative play between team members is richly rewarded, giving small coordinated teams an advantage in the battle. Players also can choose to take dogs into the firefight with them. Use the dogs of war to guard your back or eliminate the enemy.
