M4 Tank Brigade Classic Now Available on Steam Early Access

logo_iEntertainment_NetworkiEntertainment Network Inc. has announced that M4 Tank Brigade Classic is now available on Steam Early Access.

M4 Tank Brigade, a World War II tank simulation for Windows PCs, is the only game on Steam to focus exclusively on commanding multiple WWII armored vehicles in real time, with combat that takes place on 3D battlefields spread over hundreds of square miles. Tank commanders control their own platoon (four tanks) and up to a full battlegroup of 20 armored vehicles — coordinating both air and artillery support. In a split second, players can jump into any vehicle in their command net to turn the tide of battle!

logo_M4_Tank_BrigadeThe M4 Tank Brigade Steam package includes thousands of single-player missions and free massively multiplayer online (MMO) combat for up to 300 tankers in the same battle. Both single-player and multiplayer modes will be updated on a monthly basis with new features and functions based on player feedback and suggestions from the M4 Tank Brigade Steam Community.

In order to include the updated version improvements in the same package as the classic game, IENT is leveraging Steam Early Access so that M4 Tank Brigade can be continuously updated. The Steam package includes the popular, finished “classic” version that has been played online and offline for years. The first new features for M4 Tank Brigade are expected in September 2015.

Unlike most MMOs, where the community is limited to existing players, M4 Tank Brigade embraces all 100 million Steam users. The community will help guide future M4 Tank Brigade updates — from user interface to vehicle selection to monetization.

Key Features

  • World War II armored combat simulation
  • Large, realistic 3D terrains
  • Play against thousands of tank enthusiasts
  • Command a platoon of armored vehicles and control four tanks at once
  • Jump between tanks to be part of the action
  • Use maneuver tactics to manage your tanks with a tactical map
  • Air power features and artillery barrage options
  • MMO combat for players who want to challenge others

M4 Tank Brigade Classic joins another IENT product now on Steam: WarBirds: World War II Combat Aviation, where players can enjoy both single-player and multiplayer WWII aerial combat.

M4 Tank Brigade is available on Steam Early Access. It can be purchased for $14.99 and runs on Windows PCs.
