Expansion included?
Will this re-release include "The Red Odyssey" expansion, or will we at least see a release of it later down the line somewhere?

Please teel me there's not a rights issue happening somewhere. -_-

Rebellion owns everything Battlezone, so there's no rights issue. Maybe we'll see it as DLC if there's enough interest in the base game?

I doubt a major interest. Carrier Command Gaea Mission from Bohemia Interactive covered the same genre and was no real success for them either. I guess there are not many left who remember those old gems. Even the five or six copies I bought so far won't make a big difference. But all the more praise for reviving those great games.

There's a lot of nostalgia for this game out there and it's a unique blend of FPS and RTS that I've not seen anywhere else other than its expansions and sequel (which did it a little differntly).

I'm sure if the game does well they'll persue the expansion content, so be sure to share it around! :D:

But mate, Bohemia's Carrier Command was utter♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

This is a cracking game.

Agreeing with Blitz, bring us the Red Odyssey!

Rise of the Black Dogs would also be nice to have on PC.

I've been converting the assets from the n64 to the PC, so if they can't recover any development assets at least we have that.

+1, i would love to experience that expansion. Hopfully it'll come as part of the base game or added DLC.

I didn't find either expansion great, Red Odyssey was packed with bugs and mission design was weak (though one must admit, cloaking Chinese tanks were awesome) while Battlegrounds was a hodgepodge of random maps and not much else. Now, that being said, if they could patch Red Odyssey and make it work, that would be pretty cool.... hopefully someone will just mod in an HD version of Red Odyssey that works rendering it a moot point!

Please, I will ♥♥♥♥ing love you long time Rebellion! I will even pay for it too!

It was a community map pack that got an official release, really can't it expect it to have been much more than a mish-mash of random maps that players had made. I wouldn't expect Rebellion to re-release it themselves, the current mod community the game still has will do that before they can blink.

Red Odyssey on the other hand, seeing that cleaned up and made DLC would be a dream come true, fingers crossed!

Sad thing is it's more likely than Cataclysm getting an HD remake and being put on the Homeworld remastered edition.

If you want Rebellion to remaster The Red Odyssey, the first step is for Battlezone 98 Redux to do really well. If BZ 98 Redux does really well, and they see a large demand for Red Odyssey, I bet they'd do it! Perhaps tweet @Rebellion on Twitter? I'd also like to see RO remastered! 100% agreed.

Bro, you make it sound like Battlezone won't do well.
