Battlezone Gets New E3 Trailer and Screenshots

News Bits


Rebellion have released a new trailer and a set of new screens for their forthcoming reboot of the classic 1980 Atari arcade shooter Battlezone, and here they are.

It’s been a little while since we’ve seen anything new from Rebellion on their made-for-VR hover tank shooter Battlezone. Here now is a brand new trailer which Rebellion claims demonstrates progress and improvements since the last time you clapped eyes on it.

The trailer showcases “many changes and improvements we’ve made to Battlezone since we announced it at last year’s E3″ and for those eagle-eyed comic geeks out there, there’s a 2000 AD trivia featured in the trailer.

To go along with the trailer, here are 4 new screenshots, which highlight the colourful, neon gameworld and reminds us what we liked so much about the game when we played it at E3 last year.

Battlezone is to arrive for PlayStation VR first later this year with Oculus Rift and HTC Vive versions to follow after.

Having followed and been disappointed by the original VR explosion of the 90s, he then founded to follow the new and exciting prospect of the rebirth of VR in products like the Oculus Rift. Paul joined forces with Ben to help build the new Road to VR in preparation for what he sees as VR’s coming of age over the next few years.
