GAMERANGER ADDS SUPPORT FOR CLOSE COMBAT 1 AND 2
Perth, Western Australia -- February 3, 2000 -- Scott Kevill today announced the addition of two new game titles on GameRanger, the Macintosh multiplayer online gaming service. In addition to the 30 previous titles, gamers can now play Close Combat and Close Combat: A Bridge Too Far.
Close Combat is a World War II tactical level simulation where you command American or German squads, platoons, and companies as you fight amongst the bloodies hedgerows between the Omaha Beachhead and St. Lo. Hear the rattle of a BAR or the scream of soldiers as they are cut down by a unforgiving MG.42. At times, it won't feel like a game. These are YOUR men, each with a name, a background, a personality and every time you lose one, you feel it.
Close Combat: A Bridge Too Far is a real-time, historically accurate World War II strategy game that puts you in command of either the Allied or Axis forces during the epic Operation Market Garden battle in German controlled Holland. As the clock ticks down in the desperate fight to control five strategic bridges across the rivers Rhine, Waal and Maas, you'll see why Operation Market-Garden is easily one of the most dramatic battles of World War II.
GameRanger was first introduced for public beta testing in July 1999 with support for 11 game titles, and had already received many rave reviews, including an award of "Best Internet Gaming Achievement" by Macworld Magazine in their 1999 Hall of Fame. GameRanger now has over 17,000 members and support for 32 popular game titles.
GameRanger is available as a free download, at <http://www.GameRanger.com>.
