6 Co-op Missions Now Available!
We now have six co-op missions available to play, including the huge The NeuroGen Incident, which propels you into the middle of a pivotal mission in the Interstellar Marines universe. Play single-player or co-op with up to three friends in intense action with more co-op, single-player and multi-player missions coming soon!
Interstellar Marines resurrects the old school tactical FPS, offering a unique blend of co-op, role-playing and non-linear gameplay. Set in a believable future, you take on the role of an elite soldier handpicked to join Project IM, a top secret military program being assembled to protect mankind from all dangers outside our solar system.
Interstellar Marines is inspired by Half-Life, System Shock 2 and Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield. Our game is all about evolving the FPS recipe with all the inspirations we've assimilated since the birth of the genre. Our goal is an evolutionary leap forward driven by our compulsive interest in science fiction, role-playing, military realism, and respect for first person immersion.
