Mindscape is pleased to announce that an exclusive agreement has been signed with Strategy First to distribute two PC CD-ROM titles, GI Combat and Dragon Throne - The Battle of Red Cliffs in the UK. Dragon Throne: Battle of Red Cliffs will be available in November and GI Combat will be available in Q1 2003, both priced £29.99.

Paul Howes, Sales Director at Mindscape, commented: "Both of these games are proof of our ambition to bring quality titles into the UK market. Strategy First is renowned for providing respected and innovative strategy games. We are delighted to be working with them."

GI Combat - Episode 1: Battle of Normandy

This tactical RTS game brings WWII action to your PC from the man behind the Close Combat series, Eric Young. GI Combat revolves around the Normandy invasion of 1941, and features fully three-dimensional environments, providing unsurpassed levels of detail, vehicle modelling and weapon effects. The game combines historical and hypothetical scenarios to create an authentic and highly replayable gaming experience. Immerse yourself in the agonising struggle to hold back enemy offensives, lead an assault to capture key objectives and charge into the fray with gritty, determined grunts! You have the chance to live that moment and rewrite history!

Dragon Throne - Battle of Red Cliffs

The Battle of Red Cliffs was regarded as one of the most important battles in Chinese history. Play the game and experience the thrill of being a heroic conqueror in the chaotic, war-ridden periods of the Three Kingdoms.

The game, developed by Object Software is the sequel to the critically acclaimed game 'Fate of the Dragon', released in 2000.

Dragon Throne - Battle of Red Cliffs uses proven RTS features and throws a number of role-playing elements into the mix; warriors can choose from more than 40 different skills, labourers can be trained as sergeants and then revert to labourers again if needed, using the special profession-transference system.

The game's multi-scenario system means that the usual tank-rush confusion is avoided and key features such as city-defense and city-attacking elevate the gameplay to a new level.
