Players can freely choose their route. Some mission objectives are optional as well, although the story follows a linear path.
Co-op is not confirmed yet but it's possible. No other multiplayer modes, though.

I'm not sure about this, actually. There's been some talk about it lately and I think some parts of the audio might be in 5.1.
Qraft wrote:Have you found any publisher yet?
Yup, we have found publishers for some European markets, and are closing deals as I write this. I will update the news as soon as we have a couple of deals signed.
Qraft wrote:Any plans on a level editor?
The easy answer is no... but we have talked about it and it might be released after the game.
hearts wrote:What's your inspiration for this game? Is it Alien Swarm?
Nope. Shadowgrounds has been in development since the summer 2003. I think Alien Swarm was first released in early 2004? Our inspirations are numerous but we haven't had a single inspiration source. I will detail them more in one of the upcoming developer diaries.
Qraft wrote:Any plans on release a dev diary?
Definitely. I think they're going to be more like "snippets" so we can make new entries once a week or so, instead of one large update every month...
Qraft wrote:when is the second trailer comeing?
Hard to say... we weren't planning to make another trailer until August, but since the response has been so good, we might do a new one in July.
Qraft wrote:Is there gonna be unlockeble stuff? like when you complete the game you get an extra game mode. Thats one thing i like about most comsole games.
I personally like that a lot, too. We will probably have some easter eggs you unlock when you complete the game, but probably nothing major. As a singleplayer-focused game, it's harder to make any unlockables that make sense (like new characters etc).
Qraft wrote:When is the Newsletter gonna start (i know, i have alredy got one)?
I would say next week. We had planned to do something for this week but it's been so busy that we had no time.
Qraft wrote:how many interviews have you done? i onley know of one.
There's two with the old name (cgonline.com and ggmania.com) and a few upcoming. I'll let you know (in the newsletter maybe) when the new ones are online.
Qraft wrote:How many people is there Frozenbyte? And how many of them are working on the game?
16 altogether, and all working on Shadowgrounds.

Qraft wrote:is there a limit to the destructible environment? like you cant take down a building.
You can't take down a building.
Basically we have focused on items and things that make an impact on the gameplay.
Qraft wrote:how will you find ammo? enemy drops or ammo crates?
You will find ammo laying around here and there. Most of the buildings you visit are somewhat military in nature, so it makes sense. And you will find a lot of dead soldiers, too... and some who are not dead and will help you.
A lot of questions.
