Combat Mission: Beyond Overlord Updated
2:52 PM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

Big Time Software has updated their turn based tactical warfare game, Combat Mission: Beyond Overlord, to version 1.12. The patch contains gameplay enhancements and bug fixes. Here are some of the gameplay tweaks that were made:

  • Tanks use better hull-rotation logic.

  • Gun accuracy is somewhat higher at long range.

  • Firing ordnance while moving is less accurate than before.

  • Quick Battles have a new "unrestricted" force type.

  • Pillboxes have slightly better 'reaction time' and are slightly less easier to spot at long range. It is also somewhat harder to hit their firing slits from longer ranges.

  • Smoke usage logic tweaked.

  • 20mm gun in Lynx cannot fire on aircraft.

  • If both sides have global morale below 25%, a battle will end immediately with an enforced cease-fire.
  • Be sure to follow the installation instruction in the readme file included with the patch. To learn more about this critically acclaimed World War II game, read our Combat Mission review.
