Close Combat Revisited

Close Combat to get new lease on life on GameSpot reveals plans to update the second, third, and fourth installments in Atomic Games' Close Combat series of turn-based strategy games for a new upcoming release. The article features a Q&A with David Heath from publisher Matrix Games and Shaun Wallace from developer CSO Simtek discussing the remake, here's a bit:

There are many reasons to revisit the series now, which I will try to outline here. As a series, Close Combat will be familiar to many older players, but to a large extent, many younger players will be totally unaware of it as a game. This is a game that many publications hold in high regard but many people currently playing PC games will be totally unaware of. There is a large modding community out there which will give a massive boost to the rerelease of the games. With more than 4,000 mods and maps available from full-blown total game conversions to simple data or graphic mods, the series can cover almost every major conflict in recent history.

Leave your fancy 3d stuff out of it. Some of us simply want to bask in glory of a good 'ol 2d series clawing back some attention.

I think Company of Heroes did a pretty good job of replacing Close Combat *ducks and runs*

Wait a minute, I thought Close Combat was real time, not turn-based.

You thought right, it's realtime. That was one of its strengths. One of many, in my opinion.

So they're ignoring Close Combat: First To Fight then?

Never played that, but from the reviews I read it seems like a wise decision. Thou I do not think that game had any relation to the others except in the name.

And I know fredrickson. How could I double post? How can go on after this horrible crime?

This is pretty cool. Obviously an attempt to cash in, but perhaps it'll lead to a Close Combat 6?

you can find the games out there, close combat 4 and 5 being the easiest to procure. i have 1, 2 and 3 but it took a lot of searching.

hopefully they don't screw around with the new version.

also, if you dig cc, try combat mission. another great tactical combat game.

 
The further one gets from power, the closer one gets to the Truth.

Look forward to this one. Does anyone know if they have a collection of the first games? I realize that the rights were moved around a bit so packaging the first five games would be nearly impossible...
