XCOM Where French Fight Nazis; Here's Classified: France '44

British studio Absolutely Games has revealed its first project, Classified: France '44, a game set during World War II. The game draws from the solutions known from the XCOM series.

Absolutely Games has revealed its latest work, Classified: France '44, via a trailer. Tha game is set to debut this year.

The upcoming game from the British developer is a representative of the tactical turn-based strategy genre and is set during the Second World War, specifically in France in 1944, on the eve of the Allied operation Neptune.

In Classified: France '44 players will take control of a special team of Allied commandos and French resistance members, who together will take part in both high-profile actions and diversionary operations against the German occupiers.


Product card on Steam reveals that Absolutely Games' work will offer isometric perspective, which will switch to a view from behind the protagonist's back when taking action - similar to the XCOM series. However, this is not where the similarities between the two games end.

  • Classified: France '44 will enable you to select a small team to take part in a given operation.
  • Like in XCOM, the locations will be separate skirmish arenas, within which you will have to complete mission objectives.
  • As the developers assure, the campaign will be playable in different ways, and the game will offer a total of 45 unique missions and several endings..
  • In addition to open combat, players will also be able to eliminate opponents silently.
