World War 2 is back, in a big way in Battalion 1944
The Square Enix collective is perhaps best know to me for publshing my dear friend Renee’s game Potions A Curious Tale. Now they are bringing Word War 2 back, in a big way. Square Enix Collective, the platform that brings diverse and quality indie titles to market, is delighted to announce that freshly-signed Battalion 1944 will be playable for the first time at EGX Rezzed 2017, starting Thursday 30th March.
Throughout the three days of the show Bulkhead Interactive will be hosting relentless matches of team deathmatch in the tight, focused and competitive Manor House map.
Battalion 1944 is an ‘old-school’ multiplayer WW2 shooter that recaptures the core action of classic multiplayer FPS games and propels WW2 into the next generation. Having grown up playing the sensational WW2 shooters from the turn of the century, the designers at Bulkhead Interactive have utilised the most up-to-date industry technology to create a visceral and heart-thumping multiplayer experience featuring raw, skill-based infantry combat. Square Enix Collective has partnered with Bulkhead Interactive to publish Battalion 1944 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
