Battlezone comes out on Nintendo Switch this summer, developer Rebellion has announced.
The tank shooter came out as a PlayStation VR launch title before launching on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
Battlezone Gold Edition launches 1st May on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and it's fully playable with or without a VR headset. The Switch version launches this summer, Rebellion added.
Retrotastic tank shooter Battlezone will get a PC beta next week, on Wednesday 19th April.
The beta will run for a week but only be accessible to those who sign up over on the Battlezone site. You'll need to be quick, though - registration closes on 13th April.
In other Battlezone news, HTC Vive has been added to the list of compatible VR headsets for the game, alongside Oculus Rift.
It's been a pretty interesting year in terms of hardware; with the launch of the PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro, Sony's console managed to get both thinner and thicker. Then there was PSVR, which gave people a reason to own Playstation Move controllers again.
Rebellion's PlayStation VR remake of 80's classic arcade tank shooter Battlezone is getting a retro option to mimic the vector graphics of its source material.
Arriving as a free update in v1.03 on 20th December, this "Classic Mode" will be separate from the main campaign as it's based around the original Battlezone. There will even be an option to choose the original title's two-track control scheme, should you wish to really make things oldschool.
The impending patch will add other new content like new mission types, maps and events. There will also be new cosmetic changes available, like the option to change the colour of your HUD. If you really want to get fancy, some ornaments (like a 2000 AD Judge Dredd bobblehead) will be available for purchase on the PlayStation Store.
Battlezone VR is not quite what I expected, and that's not because I didn't trust Rebellion to make a game that's simple, direct, scrappy and endlessly endearing. Battlezone VR is not quite what I expected because, as well as being a fast-paced blaster in which you knock about in tanks and pretend you're still basking in the vector glow of an arcade great, it's now also a roguelike.
Well I never, PSVR launch day has finally arrived and to celebrate, I made up a brand new word: Streampocalpyse. I think it has a nice ring to it.
Yep, I'll be streaming PSVR games today for as long as my stomach can handle it, and as always I'd be honoured if you lovely lot fancy joining me in the video below.
I've gotten hold of as many PSVR launch titles as I could manage and I'll be trying to play at least half an hour of each, hopefully more, but it all depends on whether or not I can keep my lunch down.
Back in the early 90s when I was blowing on cartridges and recording episodes of Captain N: The Game Master on VHS, the thought of being able to play video games with my friends in virtual reality was the sole preserve of science fiction. Twenty-five years later however, those childhood dreams look set to become a reality.
PlayStation VR launch title Battlezone has co-operative multiplayer for up to four players, developer Rebellion has announced.
Virtual reality, in case you didn't know, is going to be a thing in 2016. What's quite a pleasant surprise is that it's now looking like a (reasonably) affordable thing thanks to the PlayStation VR's recently announced price point. Sony's unit now looks like it's got the best chance to crack the mainstream market that Oculus and Vive have priced themselves out of, and it's got a pretty decent looking software line-up already.
Battlezone VR will contain a procedurally-generated campaign, developer Rebellion (Sniper Elite, Aliens vs. Predator) revealed.
British studio Rebellion has unveiled the first details of Battlezone 98 Redux, the new name for its previously-announced Battlezone remaster.
Earlier this month Sniper Elite and AvP developer Rebellion announced that it's remaking the old Atari Battlezone tank game into a VR shooter for PS4 (via Morpheus) and PC (Oculus Rift, HTC Vive). As it turns out, Rebellion is making not one, but two Battlezone games, with the other one being a remaster of the 1998 edition for PC.
"As our teaser trailer revealed, our VR version of Battlezone is very much a reboot of Atari's 1980 arcade classic, a game we're very fond of at Rebellion," the developer said in its announcement. "However, we also know that a number of you are fans of the 1998 and 1999 Battlezone games released by Activision that re-imagined the franchise as a groundbreaking hybrid of FPS and RTS gameplay."
As such, this remaster is coming.
Remember Battlezone, Atari's old tank combat game? It's back - as a virtual reality title.
