Good read, and good game... Played the hell out of it back in the day.

I do hope land and armor news and articles continue here under new ownership, hate to see it fade after all the work it took to build it up.
Good Luck.

This was (and still is) an excellent game. I also enjoyed the Risk style campaigns.

Other than online matchmaking via steam, are there any gameplay enhancements over the original + Thrones and Patriots?

The average naval aviator, despite the sometimes swaggering exterior, is very much capable of such feelings as love, affection, intimacy, and caring. These feelings just don't involve anyone else.

Hey guys, this is Chris, the writer of that amazing article. Besides some enhanced textures and native widescreen support, I can't find anything specific as far as gameplay enhancements go. I think I prefer that though as it still stands up today.

That being said, I reached out to SkyBox and they directed me to Microsoft for press inquiries. They also wouldn't answer my follow up on a hard release date, though they really wanted to. Unfortunately, they wanted to keep their job more.

I'll update if I get more info soon.
