Battlezone II 1.3 (typically referred to simply as 1.3 or the 1.3 patch and initially developed as 1.21) is an unofficial patch created by Nathan Mates and Ken Miller with the assistance of the 1.3 Test Team. It began development in fall 2001 and achieved its first release on February 28 2004, and has since provided major fixes, added content and, more recently, completely overhauled the graphics and multiplayer matchmaking systems.
