History is being made today! Battlefront.com is thrilled to announce that pre-orders are now open for our new flagship wargame Combat Mission: Battle for Normandy. What started 11 years ago with the release of multiple Wargame of the Year "Combat Mission Beyond Overlord" (still on PC Gamer's list of Best Games of All Time) is now coming full circle, and finally returning to the beaches and bocage fields of Normandy, France, 1944.
Combat Mission: Battle for Normandy (CM:BN) faithfully recreates the experience of tactical land warfare in Western France during World War Two. Using the unique Turn-Based (WeGo)/Real-Time hybrid game system of our proprietary CMx2 battle engine, the first installment in this new series covers the three months after the Allied D-Day landings in Normandy in June 1944, from Operation Overlord in June through the Cobra Breakout in August.
Combat Mission: Battle for Normandy is now available for pre-order in a special SteelBook TM Limited Collector Edition! The metal SteelBook TM is a high-quality retail-style package, fitting up to 4 discs inside (the game disc as well as up to three future modules) as well as the full printed 200(!) page manual. If you want to find out more about this exclusive box, check out the Interactive Online Viewer ( *Windows only, Internet Explorer required) courtesy of Scanavo, or the SteelBox TM YouTube video.
This SteelBook TM edition is limited, and only available as long as supplies last. Orders will be fulfilled in the order they are placed.
If you pre-order now f or only $60 plus S&H, you secure your SteelBook TM Limited Collector Edition copy today!
But wait, there is more:
- <*>you will be able to also download the game immediately on release day. So you get both the digital download right away AND the collector's box by mail.*> <*>unbelievably, you even save $5 on this pre-order deal in comparison to purchasing a Download&Mail Delivery for $65 + S&H after release.*>
