DropTeam Update, Expansion Announced
9:07 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Battlefront.com has announced the release of DropTeam 1.1, a major update to the recently released Sci-Fi themed real-time armored vehicle combat simulation that adds infantry squads to the game. The company also announced plans on a expansion pack.

Here's more on the patch:

Presently, there are three new squad types modeled (with many more on the way) and represent lightly armored troops, with medium range jump packs and equipped with an assortment of beam, rifled and heavy weapons.
Battlefront also announced plans for a WW2 expansion for the game
The developers announced that work has begun on a WW2 expansion for DropTeam!

DropTeam - WW2 (working title) is an exciting extension of the DropTeam game system set in WWII. Players command realistically detailed WWII tanks, infantry, and guns in a detailed environment populated by up to 16 players on one of two sides.

As with the original DropTeam, each player commands a single unit at a time and coordinates his actions with teammates to achieve various victory conditions, or can play from a more strategic perspective by using the commander's interface on the overall tactical map to issue orders to units much like a traditional RTS game.

Steve Grammont, co-founder of Battlefront.com said: "Teams that know how to use complimentary units in combination with each other will likely crush those who don't. For example, one player may command an armored half track while another rides inside with an infantry team, while a third sticks close by with a heavily armored tank for protection.

DT-WW2 will evolve over time, covering different theaters of combat at different points in the war. The initial setting will be the hectic battles in Normandy during the summer of 1944. As with the previous DT, it can be experienced using Windows, Mac, and LINUX operating systems. More details to come later this summer!

And finally, the base game of DropTeam (together with many other of Battlefront's classic wargames) has been reduced in price to only $35 for the digital delivery or mail delivery version. That's a $10 savings over the original release price.
