Description from the packaging.

Take Strategy to the Front Lines.

You are the high-level Commander making decisions from your own war-ravaged tank. Lead your U.S. troops on a mission to gain control of a superior alien technology in the true "space race" against the Soviets... or cross enemy lines to the Soviet side. It's all under your command.

Full-Scale 3-D Action
Pilot one of 25 anti-gravity war machines, and wield 25 devastating weapons- including mortars, mines, and the Thumper Device which triggers on-the-fly earthquakes on the morphable terrain.

Complete Strategic Control
Coordinate full-scale attacks with over 30 unique units such as tanks, infantry and mobile assault turrets. Call in artillery, deploy wingmen and manage resources- all from within your tank.

Dynamic First-Person Immersion
Lose your vehicle in battle, bail out, parachute to safety; then use your sniper rifle to take over another unit. Switch vehicles right on the battlefield of one of seven distinct moons or plants!

The Boundaries Between Action and Strategy Are Being Redrawn.

Battlezone. This Means War.

In 1980, the original Battlezone took the computer gaming universe by storm as the first 3-D game ever. In 1998, Battlezone re-invades with an unprecedented new genre that's every bit as revolutionary as the first. Battlezone- the first true real-time action-strategy war experience. Prepare to take command.

Command System:
An innovative menu system integrates troop and resource management for full control from within your vehicle.

Scrap/Pilot Meters:
Both are a resource. Gather Scrap for your unit-building factories; build Barracks to add to your supply of pilots.

Solar Array:
The Solar Array provides power to your Gun Towers and other energy-intensive units.

Send your Scavenger to collect valuable Scrap. Gather from scrapfields or destroyed units on the battlefield.

Nav Beacon Camera:
Set up Way-point navigation beacons along the battlezone to stage attacks or for surveillance purposes.

Gun Tower:
This devastating, long-range defensive unit is powered by the vulnerable Solar Array.

3-D Radar:
A topographical 3-D radar displays your base location, unit placement, field of vision and enemy position.

Grizzly Tank:
Configure a Grizzly, the key American tank, right on the battlefield.

Spend resources to reconfigure your vehicle's weaponry on-the-fly in the midst of battle.

Wage multiplayer battles in Strategy or Deathmatch modes over LAN, modem or Internet.
