For the first time in ten years, Combat Mission returns to the Eastern Front, and with a vengeance
Battlefront.com has announced the development of Combat Mission: Red Thunder, a major new title in its series of tactical WW2 combat simulations. 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.
CM Red Thunder is an all new standalone game and does not require any of the other titles. The game engine features include backpack and vehicle flamethrowers, tank riders, hit decals and more.
Those who pre-order Combat Mission: Red Thunder will get immediate download upon release including early notification by email, a Tin Case Special Edition and DVD by mail (the tin case holds up to 4 discs, great for all the follow-up modules), two printed manuals (the East Front manual, and a 3.0 Engine manual), and a saving of $10 for the "Download&Mail" option vs. ordering after release.
