Raw skill based gameplay. We believe your skill should be determined by your play, not through unfair overpowered unlocks & abilities. Battalion takes design influence from classic skill based competitive shooters and merges that classic game feel with stunning next gen visuals and a fluid modern user experience.
Intense & balanced infantry combat. Our designers have played hundreds of multiplayer games to design the perfect formula for a well balanced WW2 shooter. The excitement in Battalion 1944 lies in the intense infantry combat and authentic down the barrel experience.
BattleRank. Fight as a lone wolf or team up alongside your friends. Contribute to your Battalion\'s season objective, receiving cosmetic & XP rewards for team and individual victories. Compete in regular challenges, ranging from seasonal to quick fire hourly objectives to earn rewards and extra XP. Challenges are broadcast via the main menu\'s BattleRank panel as well as the Battalion 1944 social channels.
Beautiful & realistic environments. Our incredibly talented art team are designing a visually stunning recreation of World War 2, travelling to Normandy to gather reference and research the war to make Battalion\'s weapons, buildings and environments as authentic as possible.
Cosmetic Progression System. Our progression system will not under any circumstances offer game breaking advantages to players of higher rank but instead will offer a purely cosmetic based unlock system. When you gain XP you will be rewarded with visual upgrades for your character, accessories and weapons within our realistic art style guidelines. This way players can shape their own identity and become a renowned and recognisable player within the community whilst still retaining an authentic World War 2 experience.
