Today we are happy to release the newly updated Combat Mission: Shock Force demo (v1.07). This demo features many fixes, user interface updates and performance improvements over the original demo, plus it includes a third (and brand new) playable scenario. Since this demo is based on the most current v1.07 game code, you also get access to the new pop-up unit command panel, customized hotkey functionality, the new high fidelity spotting model and hundreds of other AI behavior improvements, combat tweaks and game enhancements!
This demo includes two scenarios which can be played as either US or Syrian, plus a third scenario, "Demo Training" which was designed as a tutorial to be played from the US perspective. Both Real-Time and Turn-Based gameplay are available and all multiplayer modes are active (TCP-IP, PBEM, Hotseat) and y ou can even access and play with the full Game Editor (save function disabled). The demo also includes the original full 196 page game manual in pdf format.
If you are new to Shock Force, or if you looked at it before and wanted to wait to see how it played once it matured a bit, then this is the demo for you. We feel it truly displays the ingenious gameplay, innovative design and most importantly, the FUN that has always been the hallmark of the Combat Mission games.
