Battle more than 40 types of mutants as members of the Gemini 2 commando squad, a highly-skilled group of war veterans, commissioned to recover the missing miners. As the Gemini 2 team, you’ll explore ten different environments throughout the asteroid, traversing on-foot or via submarine, mech, shuttle, and other vehicles. Each of the eight squad members comes with unique unlockable weapons to help you survive alien monsters and vicious trap-filled corridors.
