Battlezone is a first-person arcade tank combat game originally developed by Atari back in 1980. It's regarded as a cult franchise by many gamers around the world. Many months ago, a new installment was released by Rebellion, but it was exclusive to PC and PlayStation VR. Luckily, that's about to change very soon!
Today, Rebellion announced that Battlezone: Gold Edition was coming to Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 on May 1, 2018. This version will be fully playable without a virtual reality headset so that more gamers can enjoy it. Even though virtual reality is a widespread technology, it hasn't been adopted by the majority of gamers. In order to increase the game's appeal — and encourage more sales — the team decided to go another route. Lastly, a Nintendo Switch edition is planned for later this summer.
According to the developer, Battlezone offers hours of exhilarating, futuristic tank warfare in stunning first-person view. The game features a procedurally-generated campaign for up to four players, ensuring no two playthroughs are ever the same. There's also drop-in and drop-out online co-op!
For £29.99, Battlezone: Gold Edition includes the game and all of the additional content ever released for it. That means all of the tank skins, bobbleheads, horns, and "Classic Mode" will be part of the package. If you already own Battlezone, then the game will automatically upgrade to the Gold Edition on launch day. You'll get all of the additional content without having to purchase a separate add-on.
