Rebellion Are Remastering That Other Battlezone, Too

Posted on Jun 29, 2015

Rebellion are not content with simply rebooting the old green-and-black Battlezone [official site] from 1980. They?ve put out an open letter to fans of the series today letting them know that they will also be working on a ?remaster? of Battlezone 1998. I guess now no one can moan at them for remaking the ?wrong? one.

Battlezone 1998 was a risky mix of FPS and RTS elements which is still well-remembered, exciting for letting you jump around from unit to unit to control them yourself, so fans will no doubt be delighted to hear that Rebellion are working on a remake. It almost sounds like the decision to make this game was a response to the fans who were asking about it after their announcement at E3. If that?s the case, don?t expect to see any more info about it for a little while.

>So now we know that Battlezones are like buses. Wait around for 16 years for one and two come along at once. I?m ignoring the XBLA version for obvious reasons.

Link … relief
