We are getting a HD update to the original Battlezone game from Rebellion :)

No idea on price so far.

Battlezone II was my shit back then and had some of the most impressive graphics around thanks to Pandemic. The base building was great too. Yes to new Battlezone. Yes to Rebellion.

Won't someone bring back Heavy Gear now?

FYI:
There's two new Battlezone games coming out. The one Lee posted is a "remaster" of the 1998 strategy game Battlezone.
The one Prey posted is a new game based on the arcade original that's designed around VR.

Just putting that out there.

It's telling that I get more excited about past games being redone than most releases.

Prey I would love a HD of BZ2 but you can still play it on windows 10 from the disc.As I have been :) But here is hoping that Rebellion get on with doing likewise to it and adding in steam support for modding and mp through steam.

And Heavy Gears 2 I would love as well. Been hoping for ages that GOG would get it on their site to rebuy as I don't own the game anymore from losing the box :(

Urgh, debating whether I should buy this or not. It's not the price, it's the fact that it's one of the best games I ever played, and I'm not sure if playing it now that it's old enough to drink (new lick of paint or not) will tarnish that memory.

I would say leave it, better not to run the risk and tarnish those memories.

I bought it last night but not got round to playing it yet. I can't recall playing it originally (damn my bloody memory) but will do a quick write up on my experience of it after some hours of it at the weekend :)

But it is getting well received so far on steam.
