Battalion 1944 - Be the first to fight!

By Square Enix Team

Attention, soldiers! We are very happy to announce that Battalion 1944 is now available in Early Access on Steam.


The Bulkhead Interactive team has been working tirelessly throughout the past couple of years to provide a first person shooting experience that is worthy of the genre’s classic shooter roots - and for those of you who have been involved in any of the Kickstarter tests or, more recently the beta, your participation and patience is highly appreciated.

The reception so far has been extremely positive with over 100,000 of you enlisting for active duty in that beta and a further 70,000+ of you helping torpedo the game into fourth position in the Twitch viewership charts during its limited playtest. We salute you!

Why Early Access?

Early Access participation allows people who feel the same way about the genre to join the active development of the game so that their experiences can be utilised to make the necessary changes to the game prior to its full release. We expect that Early Access will last approximately one year, with a number of new features and maps to be added throughout this time.

What will I have access to?

Players will have access to a host of modes including old favourites such as Domination, Capture the Flag, Free-For-All, Team Deathmatch, and Wartide. This last one is a new mode which features two teams - each with five players per team, two weapon armouries and thirteen rounds to secure victory. If you would like any further information on the plans for the future of Battalion 1944, you can find the roadmap here.

Join the FPS-Revolution now for just £11.99/€14.99/$14.99 on Steam. Our forums are now open and we would love to hear your feedback so that we can ensure that you enjoy the experience.

We look forward to seeing you on the battlefield!
