 15th December 2016 - PATCH 1.03 -VR LIKE IT'S 1980: BATTLEZONE TO INTRODUCE CLASSIC MODE FOR FREE

FREE mission types, FREE maps, and TONS of new content, all scheduled to dock on December 20th.

 

With the holidays nearly upon us, BATTLEZONE is going back to the future! The hit PlayStation VR is introducing CLASSIC MODE - a gorgeous resurrection of the original arcade game - and it's FREE! 

 

WATCH THE NEW CLASSIC MODE TRAILER

Fans can now relive the iconic wireframe world of 1980, except this time through the power of modern VR. Harking back to the arcade cabinet's original gameplay, you can even pick between BATTLEZONE's modern control and two-track "retro" controls! Rack up high scores to top the leaderboards and prove your credentials as a true, CLASSIC arcade champion!  


FREE CAMPAIGN CONTENT! 

Classic Mode will be totally FREE when it's patched in on December 20th, and you'll find it separate from the BATTLEZONE campaign in the Extras menu. The December 20 update will also add FREE CAMPAIGN CONTENT, including new mission types, maps and a brand new "Field Manual" codex.


NEW CUSTOMIZATIONS! 

Finally, if you've been hankering for ways to customize your Cobra, we've got you covered. The new update will also bring new skin packs to the PlayStation Store, a pack of custom horns to make yourself heard with, and bobbleheads including one for 2000AD's Judge Dredd - and a snowman! 

 

And there is plenty more content on the way to BATTLEZONE over the coming weeks and months, so... stay tuned!

 I'm curious... When Battlezone was released, you guys said all future additions would be free. But now there's paid content.

How about making that content earnable  in game while playing to keep your promise of all additions being free?

Hopefully the additional levels and new game mode go someway toward keeping our promise for you. We'll be adding more new levels, weapons, tanks, etc. in the near future, all for free. 

As far as unlocking customisation options go in-game, it's something I personally would love to see in the future but I'm not aware of any plans for that at the moment.

 Nobody wants to be moist.
