6:00 AM | Jesse Brauning | Comment on this story
Battlefront.com, the game company known for popular war games such Combat Mission, has announced that it will be publishing DropTeam for the Mac and PC this fall. The game is being developed by TBG Software and is described as a multiplayer capable, real-time, tactical simulation of mechanized ground combat set in the far future.
Here's a bit more info about the game:
You’ll battle for control of objectives on a broad variety of planets ranging from verdant Earth-like worlds to desolate, radioactive wastelands. You will use Dropship's to land fighting vehicles and other deployable assets like sensors, mines and automated turrets on planetary surfaces. You will take direct control of various types of armored fighting vehicles while also coordinating your team, including AI, other human players, artillery support and more. Vast, exotic landscapes rendered in real-time with detailed, accurate physics and ballistics systems and true line-of-sight provide realistic combat. There are no “hit points”, limited view distances, unrealistically short weapon ranges, or other gross simplifications that are typical of many other sci-fi games. DropTeam can be played online on a public server with up to 16 players, or it can be played privately with as few as 2 players, as well as single-player vs. AI opponents. AI opponents can also be mixed in with human players in order to make the teams any size you like.We will keep you posted on new developments as this game progresses. You can find a link to the game's website below.
