Door Kickers 2 – Task Force North

The sequel to the critic and public-acclaimed Door Kickers moves the action to the Middle East and puts the player in control of military Special Operations Teams fighting an elusive Terrorist Network.

Gone are the SWAT shields and tazers, enter the beltfeds and frag grenades. Door Kickers 2 casts the player as leader of the eponymous Task Force, handling units such as the US Rangers and assets like drones to respond to threats, solve crises and hunt the enemy on his own turf.

Once the Tactics Phase starts, things are meatier and deadlier. Extraction and Insertion now become equally critical, but so does telling the bad guys from bystanders and innocents.

They say that great responsibility should actually come with greater power, so players can now take advantage of nighttime, darkness or even good old sneaking to surprise the enemy. New trooper classes, weapons, tools and gadgets open up the tactical options, but one thing does not change: You’ll live and you’ll die by your tactics.

And then you’ll hit Restart and try again.

To help with the challenge, Door Kickers 2 adds Cooperative Multiplayer to the existing mix of Single Player Missions and Campaign. And since you can never have too much content, the game comes with complete modding support, improved mission editor and partial source code access. Yes, we can; it’s our own custom built 3D engine. We’re cool, crazy, or most likely both.

(Special note for our fans: Adversarial Multiplayer is still in the books but will make the subject of a separate announcement later this year)

Key points to Door Kickers 2 – Task Force North:

  • Choose which unit to deploy for each mission and adjust your tactics accordingly Surgical Operations or Overwhelming Firepower – anything is possible.
  • Use Night Vision, Drone reconnaissance and other realistic gadgets
  • True freeform tactics taken to the next level: Turn off the lights and hide in the dark. Break windows and jump over ledges.
  • Go fast to the target or slow and methodical. And if you make a mistake, adapt and overcome.
  • Face new threats such as suicide bombers, booby traps and RPG launchers.
  • Use new Tactical Abilities. Group your troopers for easier movement.Establish Rules of Engagement – you name it and … we’ll talk 🙂
  • Lots of hush hush stuff we’ll announce along the way. And take that literally 😉

  1. Awesome! Entire day that I press F5, and now the announcement is here!

    Simply can’t wait to see more! The hype is raising every row I read….

    Thanks and congratulations!

    • Why is it not for IOS and Android?

      • Sepeteus Luikkarinen

        Or Windows Phone?

      • Jakub Salwin

        I think to first get the pc version done to get money for the iOS and android

      • I don’t think that it’s a question of money.

        Early access on pc allow to receive logs, feedback and pushing updates more quickly that on mobile devices.

        Also, on mobile devices, except very few beta apps, only completed games are released.

    • I can’t wait for this one to get released on the App Store!!!

    • Blackswat12

      wow… im wating for this game like for years. trust me, this is one of does, dat wont even come out kk look wat i tell u ;D

  2. Cool. First comment in this hype!

    • SniperPig9

      It would be cool if in the final campaign mission, u storm osama bin ladens stronghold

  3. It’ll be bittersweet to say goodbye to the SWAT guys. But such an awesome new direction! Kudos on the RoE (“fire when spotted” could be a good one) and group formations. New setting certainly can lead to interesting new classes (K9, sniper), also would be neat to see options on how to insert (parachute, waterborne craft, helicopter). But most of all please include a layering system, to where I can select an operator and adjust only his plan of attack and movements (so they’re not mingled with other operators). Just some ideas for a loyal fan. Excited and can’t wait!

  4. Take all my money now!!!!!!! I want it!

  5. Sounds very exciting. Considering the quality of DK I think it’s fair to say I just got a “must buy” for ’16 – best of luck to you lot.

  6. Cant wait to play it. 🙂 I already buy DK whten you have only alfa ver. …. so, now i Will buy even preALFA ver. if is possible 🙂 cuz you guys do soooo much good game/games 🙂

  7. YES! do you need beta testers?!

  8. Finally! Before, stealth was quite hard. Hiding in the dark, or going full out, the fact that you have the option is great. PLEASE make sure that the game revolves around real-time tactics if you can. I liked not having to plan anything. Also, before, firefights lasted five seconds. Either the bad guy or you’re guy won. That’s it. There was no time to flank around and catch them from behind. Maybe the firefights will last a little bit longer so you can do things like cover-fire and keep the enemy busy. Will you release the trooper classes?

    …..could we…. maybe….. have RPGs? ….everyone wants RPGs….

  9. Other than the obvious, I’m liking how the art directions is going. It’s a nice blend of 2D and 3D elements. Subtle but effective.

  10. Nice ! Looking forward to it !
    Can you implement a “All-clear” button ? (Works like a standard go-code but for everybody combined with the no bad guy in sight)
    Can you also implement shortcut ?
    With this two things i think it will be easier to stage completely an assault : put your first order for everybody – hit “All-clear” button (it will put a go-code for everybody on the screen so each character will wait for the other to finish his actions – give your second set of order – hit “All clear” button, etc…)

    Thank you

  11. Weapon customize?

  12. Over-excited

    I jizzed my pants, but that is okay, because when this game hits the shelves I will be crapping myself in them.

  13. Reaper 3-1

    My body is ready for DK2

  14. Looking forward to DK2. sold. and glad to hear it will be released for both pc and handhelds. I’ll get it for both of them like DK1. Can’t kick enough doors.

  15. I hope you will add smoke grenades and maybe also incendiary grenades because they can be very useful.

  16. When will this be on iOS?

  17. The better player

    When will this be on iOS this year or the next?

  18. iOS no sooner than 2017 for sure.

    • The better player

      Thanks I am really looking forward to it because I’m maxed out player for level and I got all the good guns.

    • Thank goodness! I’m going into hibernation. Someone let me know when DK2 is released.

    • The better player

      BTW is this going to be the Austrlian Army or American Army or a Middle East army that your soldiers are based on and who you play as?
      P.S. Make it Australian Army

      • or wouldn’t it be cool if you could choose the military your soldiers are from or have the characters all from different countries like rainbow six ( the old ones)

  19. The better player


  20. Im so hyped right now it looks awesome keep up up the good work guys

  21. Not My Real Name

    Looks amazing but I just purchased Door Kickers and now 2 is coming out… I’m so annoyed with myself

  22. Liked da first 1 can’t wait to check dis 1 out

  23. If first game was successor of R6, it seems the second will reignite spirit of good old “Alfa:Antiterror”


  25. Launch by mobile first

  26. Instabuy 🙂

  27. good news! it would be great if there will be PMC (Private Mill Contractors) type of operators\missions\style 🙂

  28. aanonamous

    i hope if u have door kickers 1 u get dorr kickers 2 4 free

    • no cos then they will have to make in-game purchases and they ruin everything. Without them the game couldn’t be funded so it would be better if the game was just a ‘buy it and play’.

    • did you get csgo for free if you got cs? did you get cod black ops 2 for free if you got cod black ops? did you get rainbow six siege for free if you got rainbow six? did you get minecraft story mode for free if you got minecraft? did you get super mario maker for free if you got super mario bros wii u? did you get loz skyward sword for free if you got loz twilight princess? did you get the sims 4 for free if you got sims 3? did you get fallout 4 for free if you got fallout 3? did you get nba2k16 for free if you got nba2k15? did you get farcry primal for free if you got farcry 4? did you get assassin’s creed syndicate for free if you got assassin’s creed unity? did you get anno 2205 for free if you got anno 2070? did you get lego harry potter years 5-8 for free if you got lego harry potter years 1-4? did you get shelter 2 for free if you got shelter?

  29. lei yunxing

    It will be interesting if we can DIY the squad blade!And can we use RPGs?It will be exciting !

  30. Can I pleaseee be a beta tester? I did not expect much from Door Kickers 1 as I snagged it off of steam for 2.25 close to a year ago but WOW. How I have missed this kind of entry planning preparation from games like Rainbow Six Raven Shield.

  31. I`d love this game! I`m waiting for DoorKickers 2!

  32. you have to release it sooner, the hype is too strong!

  33. More mods for DK2 please. 🙁

  34. I hope you implement a “Formation” mechanic where you can select 2 or more guys and instruct them to move as one in formation. This will make the shields so much more useful as I think what makes them too hard to utilize in door kickers is that they require this specific mechanic to work well (or atleast easier to use).

  35. The one annoying thing about Doorkickers 1 was that the interface was obviously not that much different for the PC than it was for the mobile version. I really hope we’ll be getting controls that take advantage of KB+M more for Doorkickers 2, things like being able to click to automatically add a waypoint at your mouse cursor rather than having to drag for every little thing, or being able to hotkeys select your soldiers and having them automatically point towards your cursor while being hotkey selected.

  36. This Game is sooooo cool and I love it but please do not make the new games maps looks like mosques or any religion building

  37. dark soldier

    I love stealth tactics. The movement in the shadow is so interesting, I love this idea. Can you improve the silencer because it make so much noise for a silencer (in DK). Thanks for all who read this comment and sorry for my english (i’m no an englishman or other who talk english). 😉

  38. I was surprised at how much I love the first game, although it was interesting that there was calibre differentiation beyond simply handgun, smg and rifle in the weapon descriptions but nothing implemented in game, which made dealing with armoured enemies at range difficult. A system which alters impact/penetration depending on calibre would be awesome and maybe even go as far as being able to choose ammo type for each mission

  39. I am a big fan of DK and the only flaw I ever saw was that when I had diiferent weopons for my troopers they had the same model so will there be different weopons models for the different loadouts for thr troopers?

  40. The Italian language PLEASE!!!

  41. AWESOME……!!!!! Cant wait for that…….

  42. Dairon Perez

    Cuando sale para Android por favorrrrrrr….please. gracias.

  43. I wonder if there will be destructible environment and I dont mean exploding cars or breaking barrels cardboard boxes etc I mean will there be ability to destroy walls? If RPG cannot destroy wall then what is the point? I miss good old game engine for Silent Storm and its destructible EVERYTHING 😀 I literally put whole building to flat ground! Why modern games are so pathetic and cannot make this even better?!

    • RPGs stand for rocket propelled grenade, because they’re just that, a grenade propelled by a rocket, And grenades consist of an explosion inside a sphere of shrapnel/fragmentation, a RPG is used to neutralize armored vehicles (by blowing a grenade near them and penetrate them with shrapnel killing the entire crew) or groups of infantry from long range, RPGs are NOT used to blow open walls, tho some shrapnel might penetrate the wall

  44. ooh! ooh! add noise blocks on walls!

  45. is there in IOS/Android?

  46. It would be good if sometimes when the enemy is unaware of your presence that they leave their guns on tables, so when they realise your there they have to run to them.

    Great game, you deserve the success 😉


    • As written in the news: Door Kickers 2 is expected to hit Early Access in Q4 2016 on Win/Mac/Linux, with Full Release on PC and handhelds coming later, aka “when they’re done”

  48. Ogo I love dorkikiker 100%dorkikers is is good game thensk

  49. dodow1234

  50. It will be awesome experience to take part in red tactics (medevac) during assault.Think about it and put elements of the first aid or evacuation on ission. Great job!

  51. Will there be an option to use a controller instead of keyboard/mouse?

  52. RefikCan

    Is there any news on it yet? I know you guys are a small company, and do outstanding work, but I neeeeed info on this! D;

  57. Awesome game can not Waight till the I-pad version is launched

  58. Any new information on this? I know you’re working hard, but I can barely find any information other than this announcement. A teaser, some screenshots or actual gameplay would be nice, considering this game is supposed to hit early access soon.

  59. Any new announcements? Is it still being released in Q-4? just respond to us! 🙂

    • SniperPig9

      Yeah, cmon. we need something its 8 days past its due date for early access

      • @SniperPig9 Wrong. It says Early Access version should be released in Q4, so in theory, they could release it on 31st December and still keep their plan.

  60. So, if darkness can help you, does that mean that enemys will respond to light(e.g flashlight mounted on gun) when there shouldn´t be one?

  61. Been playing the first one again regularly. It’s a fantastic game and deserves more credit in the msdia. I sincerely hope that even of this game isn’t going to make its launch window; then the developers will help manage the community expectations. And start talking to us about it.

  62. Hey guys,

    I absolutley love your game and can’t wait till the release.
    But could you please drop me an email when te release comes. That would be awsome;)

  63. SniperPig9

    what if they made it for xbox or ps?

  64. Well,When I first play the game like this(CQB) it was Breach and Clear,then I found this game,I think it is a really good game .I am in China,so when this game will be sold in china?I think it is a really good game,
