The new trailer offers historical context along with some gameplay footage for the new remake of the classic Close Combat: A Bridge Too Far.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said“This new trailer sets the dramatic stage for Operation Market Garden with a touch of comedy and plenty of intense gameplay from Close Combat– Last Stand Arnhem. This remake of A Bridge Too Far has been anticipated for quite some time now and we’re proud to deliver!”

This is the most ambitious and most improved of the new Close Combat releases.

As the Allies, you will carry out the world’s largest airborne operation, Operation Market Garden, to cross the Rhine and bring a swift end to the war or, as the Germans, use a hastily organized set of defense forces to prevent the Allies from reaching their ultimate goal, ArnhemBridge. Close Combat– Last Stand Arnhem comes with expanded force pools, reserve&static battlegroups, a troop point buying system, ferry and assault crossings, destructible bridges, static forces and much more!
