CLOSE COMBAT III MARCHES ONTO STORE SHELVES
January 15, 1999 -- Microsoft today announced that Close Combat III: The Russian Front, the highly anticipated new title in the award-winning Close Combat series, has started to appear on store shelves. There have been several reports of its availability at locations throughout the United States, and full domestic distribution is expected by January 28.
A free, downloadable trial version of the game is currently available on the official Close Combat III site.
Close Combat III puts players in command of a "fire brigade" of soldiers on the Eastern Front, spanning the 1941 invasion of the Soviet Union through the gates of Moscow, the factory complex of Stalingrad, and to the 1945 fall of Berlin. CC3 features real-time, historically accurate warfare at the squad level along with psychological elements for maximum authenticity. Playing either the Soviet or German side, gamers are challenged to out-think and out-fight their opponent while keeping their troops alive. They start as low ranking commanders and manage unit upgrade and maintenance as they attempt to advance in rank and acquire more troops and equipment.
Close Combat III is available domestically for around US$49.
