Description from the packaging.

Ground Combat- 21st Century.

With the break up of the Superpower blocks, colonial wars ravage the world. The development of powerful beam weapons and defensive energy shields have revolutionized ground warfare giving a new lease of life to the concept of the Armored Fighting Vehicle.

Propulsion systems have advanced beyond recognition. The development of the GRAV engine means tanks can skim across a battlefield of todays helicopter gunships.

Firezone simulates this new style of combat. It can be played as a solo game against a tough computer opponent or as a two player game. The player can control either of the two main protagonists- the European League or the Pacific Combine- in any of the set scenarios. Victory is yours when the opposing forces are either wiped from the map or forced into mass retreat. Also incorporated is a scenario editor program allowing the player to design his own battles.

Firezone is a phased game and incorporates the latest in Artificial Intelligence techniques.
