Seems BattleZone 98 Redux lovers are in for a treat! Fans of the original 1998 classic might remember the huge expansion DLC ‘The Red Odyssey’…well, those within North America that is, since it was never released anywhere else. Luckily, for those who missed out on it the first time around, Rebellion announced that they’re bringing the popular DLC back for everyone to enjoy! Bringing with it several new multiplayer maps, 30 new vehicle and building units, two new factions to fight with on 23 missions across two new campaigns and to top it all off, Big Boat Interactive is showing ‘The Red Odyssey’ some love with a spiffy new makeover, just as the remastered base game received before it!

If that wasn’t amazing enough, Rebellion just released a DRM-free edition of BattleZone 98 Redux with a 33% discount on while we all wait for the new expansion to be released sometime this summer, which will be simultaneously launching on both GOG and Steam services.

For more details about the upcoming DLC, please take a look at the press release below.

Looking forward to this, I never played the original back in '98, but I did power through 'Redux' and It did grow on me over time, ended up enjoying it quite a bit and now... a ton of extra stuff coming to it, pretty much an entire game being added, pretty damn sweet if you ask me.
