Battlezone 98 Redux Is Out

This is a glorious day, at least for me, because Battlezone 98 Redux is finally out. The game was hell of a fun back when I was still little and now, with the power of technology, and Steam, the game is back in glorious HD, with up-rez’ed textures and reworked models, and mods support via Steam Workshop. Better yet you can have it all for a reasonable price of £14.99/$19.99 (or less if you get it during the launch window).

I have really fond memories of the good old days and seeing games that I used to love with a fresh paint of coat really warms my heart. The only thing that keeps nagging at the back of my head is can the good old games hold its own with today’s standards? After all, the HD version is exactly the way I remember the game. Nostalgia is a powerful thing.

Even with all that said I am happy to see that Rebellion are teasing yet more Redux’s. We will definitely be keeping an eye out and informing when more info comes out as well as and hoping for Battlezone 2. To get more details on all this just glance over the press release below as well as look through the screenshots in the gallery.
