Battalion 1944 is a first-person shooter for PC, PS4 and XONE and focusing on multiplayer matches. It has been developed by a British Bulkhead Interactive studio.
Battalion 1944 for PC, PS4 and XONE doesn’t have single player campaign, offering only multiplayer experience. Game is focused on fast-paced infantry battles, with gameplay being purely arcade, but with a huge dose of realism, visible in weapons’ behavior. It also puts an emphasis on player’s skill, as we won’t find any kind of special powers or character development system that would give us access to better skills and items. All that we will get for our victories are cosmetic additions, for example badges or option of signing weapon with our name. None of this additions has any in-game effects.
Maps are based on authentic battlefields of World War II, as we fight e.g. on streets of Carentan town or in forests nearby Bastogne. Developers made sure to visit real places and gather source material, ensuring that each location offers a high level of realism.
Battalion 1944 offers set of classic modes, like deathmatch, capture the flag or domination, as well as their team variants. Also, developers added some of their own creations. It will also be possible to set up private servers, or to play through LAN.
