Catalyst Game Labs AnnouncesÂ Classic
BattleTech: Strategic OperationsÂ Â
Lake Stevens, Washington (May 23, 2008)Â – Catalyst Game Labs (An InMediaRes Productions, LLC company) is pleased to announce the latest title in the Core Rule book series for Classic BattleTech: Strategic Operations.Â
Randall Bills, Managing Developer for Catalyst Games Labs said, "This newest title will bring a level of detail and depth of play the fan base has been demanding for ages. In fact, when weÂ originallyÂ scheduled Classic BattleTech Tactical Operations, we had envisioned it being a single book. As weÂ began to compile the information and rules, we quicklyÂ realizedÂ that we had written enough for twoÂ volumes! With StrategicÂ Operations, players will now have the ability to create on-goingÂ campaignsÂ using the rules for combat across an entire solar system, link-scenarios and repair, maintenance, salvage, and customization of individual â€™Mechs and other units. Heck, that barely just scratches the surface of everything that is in this beefy new rules book! For even more added value, weâ€™ve included a series of rules that will allow you to use the miniatures you already have to represent large-scale actions such as planetary invasions, in the same amount of time as you would play a regular game! Weâ€™ve really pulled out all the stops on this one."
David Stansel-Garner, Operations Manager for Catalyst Games Labs said, "VeteranÂ and new players alike will love these companion volumes we are adding to our Core Rules line-up. Fans have already enjoyed Classic BattleTech Total Warfare (our main rules book) and Classic BattleTech TechManual (our "gear" book). With Classic BattleTech Tactical Operations releasing this summer, and theÂ announcementÂ of Classic BattleTechÂ StrategicÂ Operations, I am really excited about how well rounded the game will be. The newest books are going to be incredibly wellÂ receivedÂ amongst the ever-growing Classic BattleTech playerÂ community.â€
Classic BattleTech Strategic Operations will be released in Q4 of 2008, with a MSRP of $49.99. You will be able to find it at your favorite Game Store, or through http://www.battlecorps.comÂ
