Salt War is a multiplayer, team-based game that pits two opposing anthropomorphic slug factions against once another. Gameplay will be a fusion of real-time strategy and a third-person shooter. The two teams must work together with their commanders to take over the map, and inevitably destroy the enemy headquarters, winning the game. Maps will lean towards being large scale, outdoor environments, which will allow for infantry combat combined with vehicle support. Each team must take over resource points located throughout the map in order for the commander to research upgrades, use abilities like calling in airstrikes, and build vehicles such as tanks to turn the tide of battle.
