Close Combat: First to Fight info
thats right, the close combat franchise has been revived. the good lads and ladies at atomic have decided to bless us with not one but two new games!!!
thats right, two!! sit down, this is exciting stuff!!!
the first game, close combat: first to fight, is a FPS which is less centralised on the shooting and more emphasis is placed on leading your team. you control a marine fireteam which consists of you (squad leader) and machine gunner, an assistan gunner and a grenadier. you team mates have been programmed so they are incredibly smart and will follow the RTFA (ready-team-fire-assist) method of action. it is going to be a doozie of a game, the graphics look clear and crisp, the AI is meant to be immpecable and oh, did i mention it has CO-op MP!!!!! YAY!!!!!!
it is due out sometime in january, although it is strongly hinted that it will be out on the 16th
the second offering, Close Combat: Red Pheonix, is a return to the CC franchises roots. thats right, traditionalists, breah a sigh of relief, its a RTS in the same mould that made CC famous. while there are no screenshots, or details, the forums have been busy and something that should be noted is that the devlopers are actually listening to what the members say and are taking it into account when creating the game, kudos to them!!! it is expected and understood that this game will not be started on until CC:FtF is released. for those of you who subscribe to the "leatherneck" magazine, you would have recieved your copy of close combat: marine in recent months. the highlight of CC:M is that it FINALLY brings MP to close combat. we have been told that this will continue into CC:RP, so get ready for some very intense fighting!!!

A friend of mine is pretty active in the Close Combat community and makes maps for mods. He betatested the previous CC-game and Atomic Games asked him to betatest this game also but unfortunately he didn't have the time. OTHO his friends at the mod-community said to him that the game pretty much rocks.

taken from gamershell:
If I am asked what we are fighting for, I can reply in two sentences. In the first place, to fulfil a solemn international obligation . . . an obligation of honor which no self-respecting man could possibly have repudiated. I say, secondly, we are fighting to vindicate the principle that small nationalities are not to be crushed in defiance of international good faith at the arbitrary will of a strong and overmastering Power.

Finally the thread I've been waiting for!!
SUCH A GREAT GAME IT LOOKS LIKE.
Really realistic game, probably even more so than Americas Army.
I just hope that the graphics and intensity of the game work well on my computer even on high settings.
Does anyone know the system requirements or what it runs best on. Also, is there a damn final release date. Its always been changing.

Loved CC 1,2,3 and still play Bridge too Far at least once a year. But I'm waiting for the reveiws before I buy any of these, got burned pretty bad in this horrid 3D CC-spinoff game released last year or the year before. By the time you got the camera in the right position to see your squad that was under attack they had already been whiped out

you talking about road to bahgdad?? on the CC forums they dont seem to like it very much, aparently it was basically just one of the other CC games with a different interface and different graphics, it was bought out to capitalise of the popularity of the war.....
eagle, have u decided what you are going to call you clan yet?vote one "The Screaming Eagles -=tS3=-
