I've updated the forums ranks to use rank images from Batalion 1994.


  Battalion 1944 Hits Early Access in February, Beta Announced

[Image: Battalion1944Screenshot2-747x309.jpg] Bulkhead Interactive and Square Enix Collective have announced when the crowdfunded Battalion 1944 will hit Steam Early Access.

Bulkhead pitched Battalion 1944 as a World World II shooter focused on old-school gunplay. Gamers eager to jump back into an old-school multiplayer arena shooter would find much to love in Battalion, and players will soon be able to get their hands on it. Bulkhead Interactive has announced that Battalion 1944 will be available via Steam Early Access on February 1.

Battalion 1944 first emerged back in 2016 when Derby-based Bulkhead Interactive - the studio behind Pneuma: Breath of Life, and the well-received first-person puzzler The Turing Test - launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund development of the project.

Its World War 2-flavoured first-person multiplayer focus, and the studio's stated aim to recreate the kind of action seen in early shooters like Call of Duty 2, clearly struck a chord with backers; the game reached its £100,000 target in less than three days.

Joe Brammer – Studio Lead at Bulkhead Interactive Wrote:“It feels good to get Battalion 1944 into the hands of gamers after working on it so hard,”

Quote:“We’ve been testing the game behind closed doors with our Kickstarter backers. It’s now time for us to extend our testing to Early Access to help what I believe can one of the best competitive FPS games ever.”

The developer also confirmed that they’ll be hosting an exclusive beta, which kicks off Friday, January 19 and ends Sunday, January 21. You can sign up for the beta here. Those who contributed to the game’s Kickstarter or Humble Bundle campaigns will gain automatic access to the beta.

Quote:“We’re going to be using the beta to run domination on the Manorhouse V1 map, as well as showing off our new competitive mode ‘Wartide’ on the map Liberation, It’s one last chance for us to test out our wares with FPS players before we make the leap to Early Access.”

Howard Philpott – Creative Producer at Bulkhead Interactive. Wrote:“Getting to grips with the intense nature of the Second World War is something that’s been key to our process, That’s something I also think comes across in this new reveal trailer – the action in a Battalion 1944 encounter is as feverish as it is credible. 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”.

Battalion 1944 can be purchased in Early Access for £11.99/€14.99/$14.99.

Battalion 1944 is being developed by competitive FPS players who have worked to become one of the most experienced UE4 developers in the industry.

Battalion 1944 launched it's campaign via Kickstarter on the 2nd February 2016. 
Within 3 days, Battalion 1944 was over 100% funded with 27 days left to go on the campaign. After the campaign was finished Battalion 1944 had raised £317,281 of it's initial £100k funding goal, totaling a massive 10,096 backers willing to pledge their support towards the campaign. 
FPS history was made. 
Bulkhead Interactive also pledged £100,000 of their own money upon reaching the original funding goal towards development. They are also releasing another game called 'The Turing Test' in August 2016. All profits received from that title went towards the development of Battalion 1944.
In 2017, Bulkhead Interactive announced their partnership with video game publisher, Square Enix Collective, who have since been assisting with marketing & development funds.

This is a shooter 100% being developed by enthusiasts for the shooter genre, alongside a dedicated like minded community, who yearn for a modern day retelling of multiplayer shooters gone by. No other time is better to join the growing Battalion 1944 community, talk to the devs and get involved with the game's ongoing development. 

Together we're making first person shooter history, and we want you to come along for the ride.
