Classic sim to be updated monthly based on player feedback
CARY, N.C. – Aug. 17, 2015 – iEntertainment Network Inc. (OTCBB:IENT) is proud to announce 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!
The 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.
The M4 Tank Brigade team is led by IENT’s Director of Game Design, 32-year industry veteran Arnold Hendrick. His first computer tank sim design was the successful and famous M1 Tank Platoon, published in 1989. Mr. Hendrik has more than two dozen other published computer games to his credit, including other famous MicroProse titles such as Gunship, Silent Service II, F-19 Stealth Fighter, Red Storm Rising, Darklands, and co-design of Pirates! with Sid Meier. He has also worked on a number of virtual world training simulations for the US Army. Mr. Hendrick is an academically trained historian specializing in military history. Players can expect Arnold to regularly participate in M4 Tank Brigade design forums on Steam.
