Combat Mission 2 Demo Coming Soon
9:20 AM | Galen Wiley | Comment on this story

In an official press release issued yesterday afternoon, Battlefront.com, the company responsible for the real-time strategy WWII game, Combat Mission, has announced good news for fans of the series. A demo for Combat Mission's upcoming sequel Combat Mission: Barbarossa to Berlin, will be available September 1st for both PC and Mac games to enjoy. Battlefront.com reports that the demo will feature 3 of the 60 scenarios included in the final game: two battle scenarios and a tutorial for players new to the series.

Here is a short description of what the game will have to offer:

Starting with the German invasion of Russia in 1941 through the 1945 storming of Berlin, the player is able to fight with historically accurate forces and equipment of 7 nations from the Black Sea in the South to the Arctic Circle in the north.

Experience combat in a full 3D battlefield as tracers arc overhead and exploding shells shake the earth! Feel the tremendous power of the feared Russian Katyusha rocket barrage! Order a tank hunter team to assault a heavy KV-1 with Panzerfausts and magnetic mines in the ruins of a shattered city! A modern hybrid turn-based/realtime system combines with 3D lines of sight, misidentification of targets, location by sound, advanced armor penetration systems, morale and leadership, fire and smoke, wind and weather and much more to bring you unprecedented realism from the people who revolutionized the wargaming genre!

You can check out more information about Combat Mission: Barbarossa to Berlin in the official press release (link provided), and keep a look out for the demo September 1st. Please note that at this time it is expected that Battlefront will only support OS 9 due to the RAVE 3D API used in both Combat Mission games.
