Freeman: Guerrilla Warfare caught my eye a while back during its lengthy stay in Steam’s Early Access program. The promise was a combination of tactical first-person shooting action with the squad leadership elements of the Mount & Blade games. It was one I figured I’d circle back around to once it had time to bake a while longer, and suddenly, that time is now. If you’ve played Mount & Blade Warband, you’ll feel right at home with Freeman – once you get the hang of all the newfangled firearms. There are the modern guns you’d expect to find in any military-themed shooter these days, along with various camouflage accessories, body armors, helmets, and other gear. But instead of simply collecting these for yourself, in Freeman you use them to outfit a whole squad of mercenaries, who you’ll command in pitched battles. Just like in Mount & Blade, you’ll split your time between a high-level strategic map and the boots-on-the-ground first-person perspective of weapons-hot fighting. You’ll need to fight in order to secure money, supplies, gear, and access to new mercenaries to fill out your faction’s fighting force, and as its leader you’ll need both shooting skills and real-time strategy chops to survive.
