Following its VR-exclusive Battlezone remaster earlier this year, the fine folks at Rebellion have unveiled Battlezone Combat Commander—a modern remake of 1999’s FPS-meets-RTS Battlezone 2. Developed by Big Boat Interactive, it’s due at some point next year on Steam and GOG.
Here’s a look at the announcement trailer….
Besides bringing some nice visual upgrades to the table, Combat Commander will come with mod support – Yay! – “for the game’s two-decade old modding scene”—and will also have online multiplayer cross-play across GOG and Steam for up to 14 players. The game’s Steam variation will also include a cloud saving feature.
If you haven’t had any experience with Battlezone before, Rebellion does have this to say:
A mysterious alien force threatens humanity itself. In this galaxy-wide war, you are in command of the resistance. Leading from the front, you take to the battlefield in thrilling first-person combat, piloting futuristic, customizable war machines including hover-tanks, colossal mech walkers, lightning-fast mortar-bikes and more.
For those people who, you know, might be interested, there’s sign ups for the closed beta here.
Battlezone Combat Commander is due on Steam and GOG at some point in 2018.
