My heart, like many other gamers has been empty of late due to the fact there hasn’t been a stand out WW2 FPS in a long time. We have been overfed the futuristic and space age shooters and running up walls or being in a mech suit can only be done so much.
But fear not as Bulkhead Interactive have announced Battalion 1944, a new WW2 based first person via Kickstarter.
Bulkhead are aiming for a more authentic World War 2 feel to the game, and as a result has stripped out all stat enhancement modifications from the game. Battalion 1944 will instead feature upgrades like clan insignia on uniforms, weapon inscriptions, etc. So that they stay as true to the base experience of a World War 2 game as possible without losing the core essence of gameplay such as in games like Medal of Honor and Call Of Duty.
The team also had the chance to visit the real world locations which are included in the game. Similar to how many games are doing now, Battalion 1944 will utilize motion capture technology in Unreal Engine 4 and true to life sound.
You can team up with friends and create a platoon within your chosen Battalion. Become a recognized platoon within your Battalion. Make your platoon known for being the deadliest, most effective, or the most active platoon, receiving unique rewards and raising the bar of competition.
The studio is seeking $142,577 to bring the game to life for its expected delivery of May 2017. As of now, it is in development for both Xbox One and PS4 as well as PC.
Could this be the WW2 First-person shooter we have been waiting for? So far I believe it to be as the studio seems dedicated to deliver a game that for so long as been lost in next – gen gaming.
