Battallion 1944
« on: 04 February 2016, 01:09: PM »


Currently a kickstarter project.

It's a WWII scenario shooter and they reference Normandy.  They seem to want to create a classic type MOH, CoD gameplay using an Unreal 4 engine without kill streak type perks.  There is even reference to LAN servers, although online servers may only be partnered with Multiplay.

One to keep an eye on.

I've just backed it. 85k out of 100k target already pledged, and 27 days left on the campaign - they should smash the target easily.

I've gone for closed alpha access - which may come in just a few months, so I will report back with more details as and when.

And THIS:

Oh shit.  :P

I had high hopes for this game but now know I'm going to die, a lot, even more than I do at the moment, indeed perhaps they can design a cemetery instead of the usual campsites into the maps, because I won't be pitching tents I'll be looking for a coffin.

YES!! This is what I've been waiting for! WW2 shooter with no poncy perks, fingers and toes crossed.

How do you pull the trigger with crossed fingers, or run for cover with crossed toes?

Video quality on the trailer is poor. I'll get on their website/forums at some point and see if there's anything better to look at.

I'd suggest that as that is a trailer, to demonstrate the concept, they will want to be doing a lot more work on video stuff.  You can see glimpses of real beauty when then start to show some of the foliage on the ground referring to Direct-X 12 stuff. 

If you visit their forum their initial post gives a dropbox link to a 1440p version of the trailer.  It's taking forever to download.

Oooh some of that is stunning. :drool: The YouTube stuff is far to compressed to do it justice.

Closed alpha for me as well. We'll be able to try it with TS running :tu:
They are now up to £101,212

I can't wait. It looks like it could be fantastic! Ols school gameplay with modern graphics :tu:

This could be the game we have been looking for - big lumps of kudos to MGP for finding it.

Fingers crossed they do it right.

Time to join their forums and influence the development :D

For those who don't want / can't back it this early on the devs have already indicated they will be happy for some streaming of the alpha stuff (subject to people making it clear that it's alpha so can have issues).  So I expect there will be stuff on the web that will genuinely show how the game is taking shape.

The Kickstarter dates show March 2017 as a timescale, so the final game is still a long long way off.  Don't get too excited just yet ;)
