  • Steel Beasts Pro PE gone gold...

    This is the "real" military simulation of armor warfare that I have posted about before... not really a "game"... cost is 125 US bucks... I already have it pre-ordered and will report on it if anyone has an interest here...


    Steel Beasts Pro PE Has Gone Gold

    Mountain View, CA, February 9, 2006 - Software developer eSim Games, LLC
    announced today that the Personal Edition of their armor simulation "Steel
    Beasts Professional" has gone gold. Shipping will begin as soon as duplication
    and printing are complete.

    "We're happy about the release and proud of the Personal Edition", said
    president and lead programmer Al Delaney. "SB Pro PE fills a gap in individual
    training and distance learning projects of some of our customers, whom we can
    now support even better with our solutions. In addition, the Personal Edition is
    available to anybody interested in contemporary armored and mechanized combat
    tactics, and can be ordered directly from our web site."

    The Personal Edition is the sum of a number of software customizations on the
    original Steel Beasts simulation game which were ordered by several armies over
    the past three years. Noticeable improvements over the original simulation game
    include support for 3D accelerator hardware (for higher screen resolutions and a
    better representation of the virtual environment), improved artwork, and the
    addition of a number of armored vehicles that were never before modeled in
    detail by any other commercially available software - including two variants of
    the Leopard 1, the Leopard 2A5, the M2/M3A2 Bradley, the FIST vehicle for
    artillery support, and various M113 and Humvee versions.

    "With these additions Steel Beasts Professional can now rightfully characterized
    as a combined arms simulation", Technical Director Nils Hinrichsen pointed out.
    "Previously we had a focus on main battle tanks, but we are broadening the
    perspective step by step without giving up our attention to detail. And there's
    even more down the road. Our concept of Steel Beasts Pro is that whenever we add
    a special feature for a certain customer, we will make it available to all other
    customers as well. We call it 'informal joint development'. For example, the
    Swedish Army has commissioned a development contract for the CV9040 IFV, one of
    the world's leading armored fighting vehicles. Once that we have finished the
    work on it, we will offer an upgrade to everybody - including our customers of
    the Personal Edition - that will include this new virtual vehicle. This extends
    the product lifetime of the Professional series for as long as there is interest
    among our customers to see improvements!"
