News: Battlefront.com and 1C dedicated to making the game bigger and better.



Yesterday, Battlefront.com and 1C released a major patch for their WWII combat simulation Theatre of War. Weighing in at 234 megabytes, the patch not only fixes a number of gameplay issues and bugs, it also adds a new campaign, the Battle For Moscow. As the name suggests, the new campaign takes place on the Russian front, adding ten new missions to the lineup. Battlefront promises to keep up this level of support for the game, saying, ?[This] is the first patch for Theatre of War but we are planning on more content and improvements in the future.?

In addition to the new content, the patch also fixes a number of issues that players have reported with the original release. There are the usual bug fixes and gameplay tweaks to the original campaign, including an improvement to the line of sight mechanic, an area that had been a sore point for some players. The patch also adds a few new features, like a waypoint function that allows players to give a more complex string of movement orders to their units. It also adds a speed control that can be used to increase or decrease the pace of the action during play.

Theatre of War is Battlefront.com and 1C's latest entry into the RTS-for-grognards market. It's set in WWII and features five different campaigns with over forty single-player missions. Theatre of War stands out among the RTS crowd with its intense dedication to detail: it tracks many variables for every shot fired in the game in order to give the most accurate ballistics simulations possible. It also expands the battlefield and ranges of engagement, making it possible for tanks and AT guns to reach out and touch one another at real-world distances.
