What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

M4 Tank Brigade is already a fully playable solo and online tank command game. It is the only game to concentrate exclusively on commanding MULTIPLE armored vehicles in real time on the battlefield. You command one platoon (4 tanks) to a company battlegroup (15-20 armored vehicles), plus air and artillery support. You can jump into any vehicle on your side at just the right time to turn the tide of battle. However, this great gameplay lacks some "polish" and certain features.

iEntertainment is working on making M4 an even better game. One update is already released that improves the user interface during battle. More are in progress.

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

This depends on what players want most. Right now we expect a year or more of gradual development and improvement. There is a good deal we want to improve!

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

We have already delivered an update with streamlined tank controls to this classic game! More are planned for 3D and UI graphics, a better advancement system, a review of vehicles stats and data for greater realism, bug fixes, and of course more tanks!

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

The early access game is the entire, fully playable classic game. It includes a variety of scenarios and deep gameplay in multiple regions both offline (solo) and online (multiplayer).

The first update has introduced a new in-battle user interface. It also has variable gun loading rates and turret rotation rates for different tanks. Additional updates addressing overall gameplay, out-of-battle UI, and the 3D graphics engine are in progress.

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

As more content and features are added to the game, the price could increase. There was no price change with the first update, but this could change in future updates.

Currently online play is free of charge. However, at some later point that will change - we'll have to start monetizing the online part of the game at some point.

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

We want and need community input to help us guide development of this game. We'll be active in the Steam community forums, from explaining upcoming ideas to Q&A sessions between our leadership and interested players. We also have a Facebook site that summarizes current development.

M4 Tank Brigade Updated

M4 Tank Brigade has received its first update. It overhauls how players control tanks in battle. Viewing the battlefield, driving tanks, and firing the main gun has never been easier. The classic point-drag-click map controls are easier to access, and still allow you to command units of multiple tanks. Varying turret rotation speeds and main gun reload rates have been added. Both are based on the historical characteristics of each tank.

About This Game

M4 Tank Brigade is a classic game of single player World War II Armored combat simulation game with thousands of unique combat missions in solo play!

M4 Tank Brigade also allows players to go online for FREE and play armored combat against other players while commanding not one but four armored vehicles at the same time!

M4 Tank Brigade takes strategy and tactical maneuvering to position your armored vehicles to capture territory and defeat enemy forces. You can send your vehicles on separate missions. You can jump into any vehicle at a critical time and place to insure victory. Your skill driving and shooting from that vehicle could insure victory! You can also call in artillery barrages and air strikes to smash enemy positions. The map shows friendly and enemy forces over a very large area, including other friendly and enemy players in the online game. Coordinate with friends to position your forces for victory!

M4 Tank Brigade is a simulation based on World War II Armored warfare. M4 Tank Brigade is not an arcade game but a simulation game that takes some real learning, great tactics, and forward thinking to play and win!

Solo & Online Versions

M4 Tank Brigade includes both online and offline games.

The offline "campaign" game for solo play includes various regions that gradually "unlock" as you play. Within each region, each battle has randomly generated forces, objectives and starting positions to insure each fight is new and different.

The online game is set in a virtual battlespace where the overall tide of war ebbs and flows between two fictional nations, "Gold" and "Purple." The warfare is continuous, until one side or the other conquers the dozens of objectives across the battlespace. If either side is short of players, the game "fills in" with AI tank units to help. Even if there are no other players, the AI for each side picks objectives, attacks and defends. There is always a fight somewhere, and you as a player can make a difference in the battle.

During the first few release phases of this Early Access game, the online game has no extra charge.

If you love tanks definately try this one. its easy to get into, and once you know the controls its great fun. i suggest playing in hard mode if your playing single player mode. Its at its best when you are playing the Soviet and German missions.
I would love to see the Tiger, King Tiger, and IS-2 tanks in this game.
I dont play games for the multiplayer mode so i wont comment on that aspect.
The graphics are nothing special, but they certainly do the job here. you can easily tell who your guys are, and who the enemy even from great distances.
The first person fighting is really quite fun, its simplified but fast paced and a feeling of ugency is really there if your in hard mode.
the strategy map that you have is easy to use, and extremely helpful to see exactly whats out there and what to use against a particular enemy. theres even air strikes and artillery available and its great to use.
I would like to see the graphics improve, and more tanks to use.
The combination of the stategy map and everything running in real time, with the fun 1st person action is awesome and
it allows you to play the game in different ways. If you want to stick to the strategy aspect and avoid the first person stuff you can if you like. you can also play largely from the first person mode as well.
I find its best to use both at appropriate moments, you will soon know when to be using which for best effect.
Good luck to the Devs on this title, I love tank games in general and this is a true gem to me personally.

I nearly didnt buy this game because of a negative review by somebody who only played it for 1 hour and when I did get it I wasnt too impressed and wished I'd saved my money. however after looking past the very basic graphics and getting into the gameplay I now think it is a very playable highly tactical game. One of the issues I was struggling with was the controls, everything in the control setup was reffering to aeroplanes and playing this game with keyboard and joystick wasnt right, once I managed to get the gunners station controlled by mouse things took a very different turn and the game became very good, theres nothing as satisfying as destroying an enemy tank while its moving flat out accross your front using old fashioned gunnery techniques ie, no lazer, autolay or computers to help, just get on with it. basically this game is about the gameplay. its very messy setting it up and the basic graphics and sounds can lead you to think its all crap, give it a go, take time to understand it and you will have hours of fun. If you liked M1 Tank Platoon you'll like this

A sort of modern version of the classic "M1 Tank Platoon" yet I wouldn't put it on the same high level as that brilliant sim.
In fact, "M4 Tank Brigade" feels more like a tank *game* than a tank simulation.
At the easiest level there appears to be no limit on ammunition available to the player and the gunnery capability of the enemy leaves a lot to be desired.
I also find the setting up of mouse/keyboard/joystick to be very confusing and not intuitive at all.
However, for $15, and the fact that it is under ongoing development, you probably can't expect much more - and that's a qualified recommendation.

I think this game works.
The tanks are great, the tactics and formations are great, of course I only played this on rookie so far so it seems pretty easy for my Shermans to smash Panthers and Panzer IV's, I imagine once I up the difficulty I'll feel cold sweat fighting against superior tanks.

Artillery, air strikes/recon, maneuverable tanks and somewhat realistic physics shooting the weapons. Explosions rain all over the place, over my forces and the enemies my platoon fires at. It feels like a toned down war, but once I inject myself into the world it's pretty awesome. Again, I am sure once the difficulty is up I'll be eating those words as this is all on rookie. I am sure I won't have as much artillery and airstrikes available. I am sure the enemy tanks will return ACCURATE fire. I am sure I will have to dig deep and use that terrain and set traps for the oncoming IV's and Panthers.

I feel this is a good game considering the existence of WoT.

Multiplayer too? I haven't tried that yet, but if I can play my favorite Panzer IV's and Panthers I'd gladly play more often.

From what I can tell though, not so big a player base online.

If you're a old school wargamer who likes great tank games like Steel Fury or Steel Beasts where you could prowl the battlefield and command a virtual batallion with infantry, artillery and the like, you may want to wait to see where this game is headed. This game reminds me of Panzer Elite Action where theres no tank interior or feeling of a lumbering killing machine. Just line up your shot and click the mouse. Not much by way of simulation.
The UI is a bit confusing at first, the tanks are a bit fast and hopefully the Devs will address the Line of Sight issue where tanks constantly fire at objects beyond a hill that's not even in view (sometimes the object doesn't even exist). Its not a bad game, it just feels like another Point and Click tank game where your A.I tanks just follow you around behaving like mindless guns.
Profiles also seem to vanish. I have to create a new Profile everytime I start the game. The game also crashes after I complete the first mission so I have no idea what other missions look like because they have to be unlocked. Guess its a risk you take with Early Access. Lets just hope the Devs refine and mature the gameplay.

FIN:

Tämä on tällä hetkelä ehdottomasti paras tankki simulaatio peli ja tankki peli mitä on maailmassa olemassa tällä hetkellä tai ainakin Steam:issa, jossa on moninpeli moodi ja ei ole F2P peli! Parempi kuin WOT -tankki peli.

Korkeat suositteluni! c:
