'Steel Battalion: Line of Sight' (Xbox) Shuts Down

by Rainier on Sept. 6, 2005 @ 4:24 a.m. PDT | Filed under News

Capcom announced that people who paid no less than $200 for their mech game Steel Battalion: Line of Sight are out of luck, as of Friday September 30th, 10:00AM-12:00PM PST, Capcom will be ending the online services for Campaign Mode of Steel Battalion. Capcom will continue services and support for both Free Mission Mode and System Link play, but these are offline modes and results in a crippled game as SB:LoC is an online game and the campaign mode is required to unlock content. The standard mode only has 4 vehicles (of a possible 31) and 4 missions (of a possible 25). The community is quite outraged and is demanding an unlock patch, but so far no reactions, or reasons why it is being shut down, from any Capcom respresentative.
