Splash Damage has unveiled its first project post-Brink this morning, a free-to-play title known as RAD Soldiers.

The game is a turn-based strategy action game, and is promised to be “high-quality”, with connected experiences set to be one one of the game’s key aspects. It’ll be coming soon to iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

“Turn-based combat means there’s no rush, allowing you to ponder your next move at your leisure, and giving you ample time to unleash your inner tactical genius and you’ll earn valuable experience for your soldiers whenever you play, leveling up your squad commander to unlock new abilities,” said game director Richard Jolly.

“You’ll also earn coins while you play and use them to unlock brand new soldiers, customization options and equipment in the ever expanding in-game store and use Game Center and Facebook to connect with friends and make new ones,” added Splash Damage boss Paul Wedgwood.

Splash Damage promises it will still do development for hire outside of RAD Soldiers, with two projects currently in the works: a AAA PC-only game and a title for consoles.

Splash has also announced the formation of a new digital publisher called Warchest. Wedgwood will take the reins as CEO, while Jolly will be its CCO.

The London-based studio’s last game was dystopian-based shooter Brink, published by Bethesda last May for PS3, 360 and PC.
