Battlefront has released an update to DropTeam, its real-time tactical strategy game that takes place in humanity's distant future. The update adds a new unit, infantry, and new squad types to accommodate the new soldier. The game features a combat system that allows users to deploy and manage highly scalable battles on varying planets. Game developers attempt to remove the "simplifications" found in many other sci-fi games such as "hit points," short range weapons, and a limited field of view. Last month a multiplayer demo was released and is still available for download, while the full version is available now for $35. DropTeam requires a Geforce4 or Radeon 9600 graphics card or better with 64MB of video memory and Mac OS X 10.4.5 or later.
