GDC 2014: Up close and personal with Frontline Commando 2

We met up with the folks from Glu at GDC 2014 to talk about their recent release, Frontline Commando 2. The original was a fantastic finger-friendly shooter where players dove between bits of cover and strategically pop their heads out to take out aggressors, and for the sequel they've added a whole bunch of new features. This time you're not alone, and have a wide range of AI allies that you can call in for supportive fire. There's also a competitive PVP mode where players can take the fight online. As usual, there's a massive armory of weapons and equipment to purchase and customize as you progress through the campaign, but the graphics on everything have been seriously amped up compared to the original.
