Rebellion has revealed the first details and media for its remaster of Battlezone, which is a sci-fi strategy game that was originally released for the PC back in 1998.
Battlezone 98 Redux, which is what Rebellion's calling the remaster, will be released on Steam this spring and offers first-person action and RTS gameplay blanded with remastered visuals, online multiplayer and most importantly of all, Steam Workshop for mods.
In order to keep that authentic feel, Rebellion has enlisted the developers at Big Boat Interactive, who house three developers from the 1998 Battlezone game that helped keep the “community alive for 18 years.”
"Battlezone 98 Redux represents a new chapter in this journey, the first in a series of Rebellion IP to be developed out-of-house as the studio’s internal teams continue to work on Battlezone for PlayStation VR, and more unannounced “AAA” titles." said the publisher in a statement to GameWatcher.
While we await the release of Battlezone 98 Redux, we're going to continue speculating about that unannounced AAA title; it has to be Sniper Elite 4 right?
