[prMac.com] Dover-Foxcroft, Maine - Combat Mission: Battle for Normandy, critically acclaimed to be the most realistic ground combat simulation of WW2 warfare, is now available in Apple's AppStore for Mac OS X Snowleopard and Lion. (...or coming soon, depending on your timezone; if it's not available in your country's AppStore yet, check out a sneak preview of the New Zealand AppStore entry.)
The AppStore version of CM:BN is identical to the original version released by Battlefront.com, and already includes the latest v1.10 updates and improvements. Future patches to this version are available through AppStore updates exclusively (the Battlefront.com patches are NOT compatible with the AppStore version). The Commonwealth module for CM:BN is NOT compatible with the AppStore version of the game. "Commonwealth Forces" will be released through the AppStore in the near future.
This latest release through the AppStore follows Battlefront.com's successful debut on the AppStore earlier this month with a special version of Combat Mission for the iPad (Combat Mission Touch), and marks the beginning of an increased focus on the Mac OS and iOS markets by Battlefront in the future, soon to be followed by a release of its modern ground warfare simulation "Combat Mission: Shock Force".
