Combat Mission Red Thunder Announced

Combat Mission Red Thunder Announced

By Brian King

Battlefront has announced the long-awaited return to the Eastern Front in their Combat Mission universe and I have to say I’m excited. It would be no exaggeration to say I’ve spent months behind the wheel of the original Combat Mission games, with the conflagration in Mother Russia being the most interesting. We’ve had no look at the beta other than the screenshots posted on their site, but everything looks to be proceeding well – the screens are dubbed beta material but look quite impressive already. We will be keeping a very close eye on this one. Consider this your heads-up!

From the press release:

CM Red Thunder jumps right into the thick of the hard fought battles during Summer 1944 when Operation Bagration took the Soviet forces from the swamps of Belarus to the gates of Warsaw. Experience the most balanced period of tactical warfare on the Eastern Front, even as the Axis’ strategic ability to wage war began to collapse. Play out historical battles and campaigns or create your own customized Quick Battles. All new units, new terrain, and new features make this a must have for all Combat Mission fans.

  1. Be aware that the other CM games will be updated eventually to 3.0 – probably for $10 I think.
