Jump in and take command in a fight that spans six exotic worlds with diverse environments - from steaming, swampy jungles crawling with deadly creatures to rocky wastelands strewn with boiling lava pits to ruined cities half-buried in nuclear snow. Players start by building a base from which they command a force of armored vehicles, infantry, and aircraft through a series of exploratory, offensive and defensive missions. Gamers will drive a variety of tanks and walkers, pilot the scout ships, and even jump out and fight an evil and challenging alien enemy on foot. Each side will choose from an arsenal of powerful weapons including guided missiles, mortars, mines and bazookas. This revolutionary game is the sequel to 1998's Action Game of the Year (Computer Gaming World). Complete Control Over the Battlefield!
The 188.8.131.52 cumulative patch for Battlezone II. Note that this is a beta patch.
The 1.3 patch series has been in development since September/October 2001, headed by two programmers who had worked on the original Battlezone II team: Ken 'Ultraken' Miller & Nathan 'GSH' Mates.
The Battlezone II Music pack has been graciously contributed by Carey Chico, who was both the art director and composer of Battlezone II's music. From his archives at www.careyjamesmusic.com,, he's found various pieces of music that was composed for Battlezone II. Not all of his compositions could fit on the Battlezone II CD, so many had to be left out. The music pack contains 176MB of .mp3 files from Carey Chico's archives.
