What is Battalion 1944?

Battalion 1944 recaptures 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.

Fight in real world locations such as the streets of Carentan, the forests of Bastogne and many more in our spiritual successor to the great multiplayer shooters of the past. Precise aim with your Kar98, covering fire with your M1 Garand and quick thinking with your Thompson are key to your success, all packaged into a competitive multiplayer environment. In short, Battalion 1944 is an infantry based first person shooter with an emphasis on raw skill. No grinding, no 'exosuits', just you and your skill as a player.

Join a Battalion and compete season to season with BattleRank, our global competition system. Contribute to your Battalion's season objective to earn cosmetic rewards for your character, weapons and accessories within our realistic art style. Flaunt your success through your player profile to become a renowned player within the community. BattleRank’s highly tuned stat tracking system enables Battalion 1944 to go beyond the standard mould of shooters gone by and enables players to compete globally for rewards, glory and honour.

Fuelled by the power of Unreal Engine 4, Battalion 1944 resurges World War 2 back into the modern gaming spotlight in our spiritual successor to the great multiplayer shooters of the past such as Call of Duty 2 and Enemy Territory. On BattleRank, it’s down to skilled soldiers like you to fight for your battalion.

Key Features
  • Raw skill based gameplay. We believe your skill should be determined by your play, not through unfair overpowered unlocks & abilities. Battalion learns from the skill based gameplay of classic competitive shooters and merges it with the stunning visuals that our team can produce, utilizing next-gen techniques such as motion capture, physically based rendering and photogrammetry to make Battalion a truly next gen competitive shooter.

  • Tight, Focused, Competitive Maps. Battalion's maps will be designed around our team based infantry combat. The map locations are inspired by real world battlegrounds of the allied campaign that we visited and then blended with competitive layouts that focus on balance and competitiveness.

  • Define your soldier's identity. Your character is unique to you. Change how other players see you and become recognizable within the Battalion community. Use cosmetic unlocks to define your characters identity and build your own unique arsenal of weaponry.

Global Competition with BattleRank

BattleRank is our global competition system which will bring raise the bar of competitive multiplayer shooters. Go lone wolf or team up alongside friends as a platoon to contribute to your Battalion's season objective, receiving rewards for team and individual efforts. Players will be able to compete globally in regular challenges ranging from seasonal to quick fire hourly objectives to earn rewards and XP, encouraging team play and friendly competition.

Community Driven Development

Battalion is a game by the players for the players, we all own this genre. The community needs to be a huge part of the key design decisions in Battalion. To keep the community involved in development, we will stream design meetings from our studio where players can actively participate meetings. Public play tests will regularly take place as well as other community aimed events focused on player feedback and player design participation. Players can gain access to our Alpha and Beta playtests and become involved with development by backing our Kickstarter campaign.
