Rebellion announced that they are bringing back the Atari classic arcade game Battlezone (working title). Battlezone is being developed for Project Morpheus, Sony’s Virtual Reality device. Battlezone features first person tank battles in beautiful neon landscapes, and delivers a deeper tactical combat.

Battlezone is a bold homage to Atari’s classic 1980 arcade game, widely regarded as the forefather of virtual reality gaming with its distinctive periscope display. 35 years on, Rebellion directors Jason and Chris Kingsley are thrilled to reignite the beloved series for a new generation of players:

“When the original Battlezone came out in 1980 – long before we were developing games – Chris and I were among the many who made up its loyal arcade following,” said Rebellion CEO Jason Kingsley. “When we acquired the Battlezone rights two years ago we almost had to pinch ourselves! It really was a dream come true, so it’s our aim to deliver the same revolutionary thrill of the original for a whole new generation. We want to use VR to truly capture the imagination of today’s gamers, just as the original Battlezone captured ours.”
