Featured General Battalion 1944

  1. Battalion 1944 development is moving forward, with Square Enix now signed as a publisher.



    Battalion 1944 was among the most talked about Kickstarter campaigns of last year. Developer Bulkhead Interactive pitched a WW2 multiplayer shooter in the vein of classic Call of Duty titles.

    The game remains on track for release this year, but a new development was recently announced. Square Enix will be publishing the game, which due for release this summer on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

    This is part of the Square Enix Collective, an initiative that was initially designed to help promote Kickstarter campaigns from small developers. Collective has now evolved into a publishing arm of Square Enix. Bulkhead actually worked with the Japanese publisher before on the studio’s sci-fi puzzler The Turing Test.

    Bulkhead revealed the partnership in the video above, and promised to show new gameplay footage soon.
     
  2. The anticipated indie WW2 shooter, Battalion 1944, has finally been given a proper release date.

    Just before the end of the year, Battalion 1944 developer Bulkhead revealed that the game had been pushed to 2018, and reduced its price.

    Today, Bulkhead and Square Enix Collective have announced that Battalion 1944 will be available on Steam Early Access beginning February 1. To celebrate, the developer released a new trailer with a fresh look at gameplay.

    Prior the big day in February, Battalion 1944 will host a closed beta from January 19 to January 21. All backers are guaranteed access, but everyone else can sign up for an invite at the official beta page. There’s no NDA on this particular beta, but invites are not guaranteed.



    The Early Access version will launch with six modes, though Bulkhead has yet to reveal what they are. The developer did confirm, however, that these will include domination on the Manorhouse V1 map, and the competitive Wartide mode on the map Liberation.

    Both of these maps and modes will make up the beta’s content. Battalion 1944 is priced $15/£12/€15.
