Multiplayer World War II shooter leaves Early Access with new content and features.
Battalion 1944 is out of Early Access today, and will available on Steam alongside a major update: Battalion 1944: Eastern Front.
When we say ‘major update’, we mean it. The new release adds a huge amount to the competitive online shooter, including the highly anticipated Russian faction, new weapons, new maps, matchmaking powered by FACEIT and more.
The game will be playable from 5pm today:
Developed by Bulkhead Interactive, Battalion 1944 is a competitive shooter that recaptures the feeling of classic World War II first person shooters. It’s a game that brings things back to basics no airstrikes, no attack dogs or god guns. To succeed, you have to rely on your guns, the impressively fluid movement system and - most importantly - your own skill.
The full release packs in plenty game modes, including 5v5 infantry battles, Capture the Flag, Lone Wolves and Domination, as well as era-appropriate weapons, and a host of maps inspired by different theatres of war.
The new update expands the Battalion 1944 experience dramatically. Here are just some of the new features included in the update:
Competitive matchmaking powered by FACEIT
8 new weapons
3 new maps
New game mode: Free for all - lone wolves rejoice! This mode has no squads, no teams - it’s just everyone vs everyone else.
Improvements to existing game modes
Replays and match history
Challenges, medals and leaderboards
Battalion 1944 is available to buy now on Steam. Simply head over there to pick up the game and get started.
We’ll see you on the Eastern Front!
