I played the heck out of the free version for several years.  If they charged $50 for the free version, I would have gladly payed it.  The free version was not as expansive as Steel Panthers MBT, but I am assuming they are expanding it a little to cover more than one year and a few armies.

Me too. But I can't remember now whether it modelled height.my recollection was that it was a flat world despite the relief mini map. The screenies that are there don't show that. Perhaps am mis remembering. Perhaps someone here can put me straight. :uglystupid2:

I am pretty sure the later versions had height.  Not sure on older versions.  I left that part of my brain at my last house.

Looking forward to this one as well. I just wish somebody would do a kick-ass version of Steel Panthers MBT style with great graphics, and gameplay.

Never played earlier iterations. The screen shots remind me a lot of the Close Combat series.  Is game play similar as well?

I dig it. The music was very John Carpenteresque. And something about broken Russian radio chatter is just...creepy.

I don't do many day one buys, but this is one of them.  Even if this game completely sucks, which it won't, I got so much gaming from the free version, he deserves my money.

Will it have coop?
scenario editor?
Map editor?

I enjoyed the free version way back in the day, but graphically there's not much improvement. I could get past the gfx if the game had some more features.

@Apocalypse
1. Coop - not sure
2. Yes, it has a battle maker. Check the streaming vid they did yesterday. The Guy makes two battles.
3. Sort of. The game comes with large maps and you can define a slice to play on.
