Battlezone: The Red Odyssey, commonly referred to as The Red Odyssey or by the initialism TRO, is the first official expansion for Battlezone. It introduced two playable factions, the Chinese Red Army and the NSDF Black Dogs, and a new campaign for each.


The Dogs of War campaign follows a Black Dog unit on Ganymede who are deployed on the Jovian moon Ganymede to gather bio-metal. Two weeks after arriving they are ambushed CRA tanks outfitted with cloaking technology. After regrouping, the Americans discover the Chinese are using a Cthonian technology, the Pegasus Device to travel between Ganymede and the extrasolar planet Elysium. Control of the portal switches hands several times until the Black Dogs finally succeed in annihilating the CRA.

Red Storm, the CRA campaign, takes place before the Black Dog missions and follows the CRA's attempts to steal the Pegasus Device from the CCA.


The Red Odyssey introduced both new factions to multiplayer, along with five new maps. The 1.5 Patch has since added both factions to Battlezone, though the new maps have yet to follow.


In 1999, the Battlezone Gold Pack was released to commemorate the launch of Battlezone II. It bundled Battlezone and The Red Odyssey with Battlezone: Battlegrounds, the Battlezone II Demo and the Battlezone Official Strategy Guide.
