Freedom Fighters is based on an alternate history in which the Soviet Union has won the Cold War and invaded America. You will take on the role of an average New Yorker named Christopher Stone and evolve into a fearless patriot who recruits and leads an army. Players will fight through the streets of New York City with seamless urban battles that take place outside as well as indoors. Because wars are not won alone, a key component of the game is the player's ability to recruit and lead fellow New Yorkers in the battle against the Red Menace. An intuitive recruiting command system allows him to give orders to his fellow soldiers and execute critical missions at the touch of a single button.
The Freedom Fighters demo features one mission in which players must capture a Post Office that has been overrun by Soviets and is now being used as an operations base.
