Combat Mission Shock Force MARINES has gone gold!

Thursday, 11 September 2008

ImageBattlefront.com is thrilled to announce that the first Module to the Combat Mission Shock Force tactical ground combat simulation - titled MARINES - has just gone gold! This first expansion module adds the units, weapons and equipment of the United States Marines Corps to the game, as well as many additional Syrian forces, such as Syrian Airborne units. A completely new campaign, many standalone missions and dozens of brand new Quick Battle maps round out what CMSF: MARINES has to offer!

What does "gone gold" mean? Well, the game won't be released tomorrow if that's what you were thinking! We will now spend a few days building the final installers, testing them, and preparing the CDs and printed materials for production. All of this will take a few additional days.

You still have the opportunity to PRE-ORDER Combat Mission Shock Force: Marines and profit from the $10 discount on the "Download&Hardgoods Delivery" option! But hurry! The offer expires as soon as the game is released!

Once the game switches from Pre-Order to Release status later this month, you will be able to choose from three delivery options: Download Only ($25), Hardgoods Only (via mail - $25 plus S&H), and Download&Hardgoods ($35 plus S&H).

In all cases, ownership of the base game - Combat Mission Shock Force - is required. It doesn't matter which version you own (retail, Battlefront.com etc.) - MARINES will work with all game versions. If you don't own CMSF, no worries - we offer a special Bundle version of the base game + the Marines Module for just $45 as well!

All pre-order customers will be notified by email a few hours before the official release announcement and will be able to download the game immediately AND will receive the hardgoods by mail when available. We are expecting Hardgoods (specifically consisting of: DVD case, CD, and printed MARINES Manual, including a hotkey chart printed on the inside cover) to be available 2-4 weeks after the official download release.

While the MARINES module is being prepared for release, we are also going to finalise a large - no, make that HUGE - v1.10 patch for the base game CMSF. This v1.10 patch literally brings the game to another level. It is already fully INCLUDED inthe Marines Module (i.e. Marines module owners will NOT have to patch). The v1.10 is expected to be released within a few days after the launch of the Marines module and will be free to all owners of Combat Mission Shock Force, adding many new features, improvements and even some new units to the game. Watch www.battlefront.com for more news about the patch, and the release of the MARINES module!
