Battalion 1944 hits Steam Early Access next month

Battalion 1944 prepares for early access, dev believes it can become 'one of the best competitive FPS games ever'

Built upon the technology of Unreal Engine 4, Battalion 1944 is focused on "skill based gameplay" - meaning that pay to win mechanics and some of the comforts we've come to expect like auto-aim and movement assists aren't present.

The game was already a success on Kickstarter with 10,096 backers pledging £317,281, far in excess of the game's £100,000 target, back in 2016.

It feels good to get Battalion 1944 into the hands of gamers after working on it so hard. But now the studio is letting its Kickstarter and Humble backers, along with a select few who register for the beta, test Battalion and its servers before the shooter's Early Access debut. Map-wise, there are two competitive maps due to be released within one and three months of the game's Early Access debut. Players can try Domination matches on the "Manorhouse" map or Wartide matches (the game's competitive mode) on Liberation.

Getting to grips with the intense nature of the Second World War is something that's been key to our process.

The Early Access release of DUSK includes Episode 1, which has received fan praise and media acclaim for its quick action and unapologetic homages to the mid-nineties FPS genre, and introduces Episode 2 for the first time. "We've looked to bed the play down in maps that are both competitive and authentic, for which our trips to Normandy proved immensely useful". This phase of development has been estimated by Bulkhead Interactive to last roughly a year; as for the price, it will be 14.99 dollars/euros or 11.99 pounds if you're in the UK.

The Early Access version will launch with six modes, though Bulkhead has yet to reveal what they are.

Check out the trailer for Battalion 1944's early access.
