For the longest time we have been itching to get back to the World War era. Mainstream titles like Call of Duty and Battlefield have moved on to futuristic battles, and even though a waste majority would like to go back, EA nor Activision looks interested in the idea.
That doesn’t mean other devs can’t take up the task and create a World War II shooter worthy of our money. Being developed for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, Battalion 1944 is taking us back to WWII. The game is going to appeal to each and everyone of you who grew up playing Battalion’s forebears like Medal of Honor and Call of Duty.
Highly detailed WWII inspired maps are created using Unreal Real Engine 4 for intense online multiplayer matches.
Fight in real world locations such as the streets of Carentan, the forests of Bastogne and many more in our spiritual successor to the great multiplayer shooters of the past. Precise aim with your Kar98, covering fire with your M1 Garand and quick thinking with your Thompson are key to your success, all packaged into a competitive multiplayer environment.
Battalion 1944 uses BattleRank, the game’s online global competition system. Players will contribute to their Battalion’s season to earn cosmetic rewards. Your skills will determine how well you perform, not weapons and item unlocks. It is a raw skill-based shooter so no matter how privileged you are, if you’re not good at it, you won’t get very far in BattleRank.
The game is up on Kickstarter and is being developed by Bulkhead Interactive. You can show your support and back the project. Devs are asking for £100,000 and they have already managed to raise £30,000 at the time of this writing. With 29days to go, £100,000 seems plausible.
