Almost there….
Almost there….

So it’s nearly time – we’re going through final testing and QA ahead of our release of out of Early Access. There are going to be a few changes as we do this, and I wanted to give you all a heads-up about it now, so you know what’s happening and why.

First of all, the price is going to go up. This was something we promised from the start – that Early Access players would get the game at a lower price than we planned to sell the release version for. And we’re keeping that promise. Over the past 14 months or so, the community for this game has helped to make Battalion what we always hoped it could be when it fully released; and we’ve always wanted to show our appreciation for that.

The retail price on Steam will increase to $19.99 and local currency equivalents, on Monday the 22nd of April. This brings it in line with where we feel the right value lies in terms of what we’ve added in the past year or so (see the list below!).

However, we know the importance of getting new players in at launch, so we will be offering a solid launch discount – although, even this won’t bring it below the price our Early Access players paid for the game.

Here are some highlights from Battalion’s time on Steam so far:

  • New Map – Derailed
  • New Map – Coastal
  • New Map – Invasion
  • New Map – Savoia
  • New Weapon – Grease Gun
  • New Weapon – MP28
  • New Characters– US Forces
  • New Charactersl – German Forces
  • All Maps Revamped– Multiple Improvements
  • Added Battlerank Progression & Rewards
  • Added High Quality VOIP Voice Communication
  • Audio Overhaul
  • Animation Overhaul
  • Wartide Overhaul
  • Spectator Mode Overhaul
  • Multiple Matchmaking Improvements
  • Added XP & Progression
  • Added Competitive Ranking
  • Added Weapon Skins
  • Massive Networking & Hitreg Improvements
  • Massive System Performance Improvements
  • New HD Renderer – Significant Visual Improvement
  • New 3D Audio Implementation
  • Added AI & Bots
  • Added Match Replay System
  • Added Strat Mode
  • Reworked Character/Level Scale and sizing
  • Released Dedicated Server Files
  • Continuous Movement Improvements
  • Continuous Weapon Balance & Penetration Improvements
  • Massive Number of Bugs Crushed
  • Massively reduced the viability of the ‘corner jumping’ meta

For those of you who have seen the rumblings and teases on the Official Discord and participated in the closed betas, you’ll have heard rumors of the huge quality of life improvements and mountains of content coming along with this coming release.

Battalion 1944’s move out of early access brings with it the game’s biggest update to date. It won’t be too long before we can start delving into the details so stay tuned. Thank you for your continued support to get us to this point.

It’s been a long journey but for us we’ve only just reached the beginning of Battalion’s life – and on that note, it just remains to say that the actual release date will be announced very soon!
