Battlezone 98 Redux – The Red Odyssey (1999)

About This Game

Battlezone is a first-person shooter strategy video game developed and published by Activision.

Side from the name and presence of tanks, this game bears little resemblance to the original. Activision remade it into a hybrid of a tank simulation game, a first-person shooter and a real-time strategy game. Battlezone is played like any other real time strategy, but the main difference is that in Battlezone the player is controlling everything on the battlefield from the first person view.

With war escalating in the wide reaches of space, the Americans take to Jupiter and its moons in pursuit of the Russians and powerful technology. On the previously quiet satellite of Ganymede, the US forces discover an unexpected threat, with the power to carve its own place in history.

Featuring new campaigns, factions, multiplayer maps and more, THE RED ODYSSEY content has been much sought-after by Battlezone fans as the original expansion never saw a release outside of North America. Like the base game, this expansion is receiving the same loving remaster treatment courtesy of Big Boat Interactive.


  • Two new factions: The NDSF Black Dogs and the Chinese Red Army
  • 23 missions across two new campaigns
  • 30 powerful new vehicle and building units
  • New achievements
