 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!

Hey guys,

We have identified a crash on the PS4 Pro where if you try and run the game before enabling the headset while using a 4k TV it will crash.

Please start your PSVR headset before running the game. (A fix is in the works)

Thanks.

Please take a look at this post.

Regarding the options button. You need to hold it down a couple of it seconds for it to re calibrate to your position.

 Hey guys,

Thank you for the feedback. Rest assured we are keeping an eye on the difficulty level concerns. I will pass this on to the dev team.

Some extra tips to help you progress.

1. Have a player that upgrades their heal.

2. Use your cover and time it for when the tanks are firing (its easy to see when you get used to it).

3. Dont rush (Unless its a timed mission).


Me and some other team members just completed the campaign on normal. We struggled towards the end but we got there!

We plan to do some open servers with Rebellion staff members soon. Lets see how we all do. Keep an eye on the Battlezone Game Hub!

 6. HOOVER UP DATA

Destroying enemies is not the only way you can accrue data. Look out for data stores to hack and data crystals to destroy, and also keep an eye out for the UFO – this guy sucks up data lying around the battleground, so it’s well worth taking it out to grab all that data back.


7. BOOST YOUR DATA INCOME

As you destroy enemies, you’ll see a scattering of blue and yellow polygonal drops emerge from the wreckage. This is data – and it’s vital you grab it from enemies when you can, as it’s absolutely critical for progressing through the Battlezone campaign. You can spend data in the main hub both to upgrade your tank and buy more lives, and at supply points to improve your arsenal. 


8. TAKE DOWN SHIELD GENERATORS

See those beacons of light on the hexagonal campaign map? These are shield generators, and taking them out will greatly help your chances in the final showdown at the volcano. It will also reduce the amount of objectives your need to complete towards the later stages of your campaign.


9. SAVE SPECIAL EQUIPMENT  FOR WHEN YOU’RE SURROUNDED

Use special equipment wisely. Activating your special equipment [L1] is a great way to change the tide in your favour. Feeling overwhelmed by a swarm of nearby aggressors? Deploy an EMP to leave them temporarily offline. Low on health? Use Vampire to drain health from enemies to you and your teammates!


10. PURCHASE EXTRA LIVES

Make sure to purchase additional lives as you progress along the campaign. It’ll be very tempting to spend all your data on a sweet weapon upgrade, but if you run out of lives then that’s game over for your campaign run, and you’ll have to start all the way at the beginning.
