Bulkhead Interactive have today announced Battalion 1944, a brand new World War 2 shooter coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
A Kickstarter campaign has been launched, where Bulkhead have also promised to invest a minimum extra of £100,000 if the project’s funding goal is reached.
Powered by the fantastic Unreal Engine 4, it will recapture the core of classic multiplayer shooters and propels WW2 into the next generation. Battalion 1944 utilizes the most advanced industry technology to create a visceral and heart-thumping multiplayer experience that has been crafted by the designers who have grown up playing Medal of Honor and Call of Duty 2. Players will fight in real locations such as the streets of Carentan, the forests of Bastogne and many more.
You can join a Battalion and fight from season to season with the games’ competition system, BattleRank. There is a wealth of stat tracking which enables Battalion 1944 to go beyond the standard mould of shooters gone by and enables players to compete globally for rewards, glory and honour. Joe Brammer, Producer at Bulkhead Interactive stated:
At Bulkhead Interactive, we’ve all grown up playing classic shooters like COD2 and Medal of Honor. It’s been a decade since we last saw a great WW2 First Person Shooter and I think the genre’s resurgence is long overdue. We’re focusing on community driven development. We want to work with passionate community of players who have a strong connection to the genre like we do.
