Could Battalion 1944 Be The Next Big FPS?
Here at Mods “R” Us, we always like to keep an eye out on any upcoming first person shooters that we feel have the potential be really interesting. One of these is Battalion 1944, which entered its Alpha stage back in May.
Where to start with Battalion 1944? Well, this game is being published by Square Enix, but it actually has a very interesting backstory in that it was not Square Enix who put up the cash to get this game made. Bulkhead Interactive is the development studio behind the game and they got the funding for the game through Kickstarter. It was a huge success with the game being funded in just a few days.
But what is Battalion 1944? Well, it is World War 2 based first person shooter. We know that it is going to be all about multiplayer action and so far details are a little on the thin side. But what we find very interesting about the game is the way that the developers have said that it is going to be heavily skill based.
We take this to mean that it is really going to matter when it comes to creating your character and giving them a good load out. Will you be able to run and gun, playing the game as a lone wolf? Or will you have to work with your teammates in order to have the best chance of victory?
While it is very early in the development for Battalion 1944, we are liking what we are hearing about it. Also, the fact it is coming out on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in addition to PCis really cool.
