Battalion 1944 – Playable for the first time at EGX Rezzed 2017!
Battalion 1944 is an upcoming shooter set in World War 2. The game is currently in pre-alpha, but it will be available to play during EGX Rezzed 2017, next week in London. This is the first time this game will be available for play, worldwide! Additionally, the first official gameplay trailer for Battalion 1944 will be shown at the start of the show.
The infantry based multiplayer first person shooter Battalion 1944 is an homage to the classic FPS WW2 games from the turn of the century. This game places emphasis on raw skill: no grinding, no body armor, just you and your WW2 era weapons like a M1 Garand or Thompson, in actual real-world locations like the forests of Bastogne and the streets of Carentan.
Battalion 1944 is being developed by Bulkhead Interactive and has been crowd-funded via Kickstarter. The game will be published by Square Enix Collective, helping indie developers to bring their games to the market. Battalion 1944 is planned to be released on on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
