Toy Soldiers: War Chest Adds G.I. Joe, Masters of the Universe Armies

Scheduled for release this Summer on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, Toy Soldiers: War Chest will be available in a standard or Hall of Fame edition.

Here’s what you need to know about the two editions of this fast-paced tower defense action game:

Toy Soldiers: War Chest (Digital, $14.99)

  • The standard edition will include Phantom, Dark Lord, Kaiser, and Starbright armies.
  • Players will also be able to download individual Hall of Fame licensed armies for $4.99 each or all four together in the Legendary Heroes pack for $14.99.

Toy Soldiers: War Chest Hall of Fame Edition (Digital & Retail, $29.99)

  • The Hall of Fame edition includes four licensed armies and the four armies included in the standard edition.

Two of those four licensed armies were detailed today, which sees the Masters of the Universe army led by He-Man and the G.I. Joe Army led by Duke:

  • Masters of the Universe: Gifted with unimaginable strength and fearless courage, He-Man, Battle Cat and his Eternian warriors team up to protect the Eternia toy box from the forces of darkness.
  • G.I. Joe: Led by brave field commander Duke and armed with an arsenal of weapons and overflowing with fighting spirit, this team works together on the front lines to stop evil in its tracks.

The other two licensed armies will be revealed at a later date, but in the meantime, here’s what Ubisoft has to say about the four armies included in both editions:

Hailing from the future, Phantom and her Ghost Company are highly skilled in the art of guerrilla warfare and add a new dimension to the game with their use of deadly technology. Ghost Company relies on surprise, mobility and gadgets, such as drones, to overtake their opponent and liberate mankind. On the other side, Dark Lord is a villainous tactician who leads a vast army of men, monsters and dragons. His Black Dragon army overwhelms enemies with speed and supernatural powers. Completing the four armies are Kaiser, proud leader of the WWI-era German Empire forces, and Starbright, leading the adorable yet ferocious Bunny Bears, Ponies and Pixies from the Star Power army. These four armies are included in both the standard and Hall of Fame editions.

War Chest features more heroes, missions, and playable armies than any previous Toy Soldiers game.
