Recently announced World War 2 shooter ‘Battalion 1944’ has reached its initial funding goal within under 3 days of being announced. The Bulkhead Interactive team have released a new heart felt thank you trailer including clips of all the support they’ve received from content creators and press as well as new unseen footage from the work in progress pre-alpha.
The team has also announced that Battalion 1944 will be launching additional stretch goals very soon, promising to satisfy some of the biggest community requested features in line with their ethos of direct community driven development. Whilst large AAA developers are so focused on the monetization of extremely large scale shooters, it’s great to see that a tight, gritty and focused shooter like Battalion 1944 can still capture the hearts of gamers worldwide.
“Thank you for backing Battalion 1944. The team you’re investing in are ready to build the next big first person shooter. We couldn’t have done it without you, the community. We have an incredible opportunity over the next 26 days to give this game the best budget it can possibly have. All of the funds from the campaign go straight towards the making of Battalion. Please don’t hesitate to become a part of this amazing community of players and a part of Battalion’s history.” – Joe Brammer, Producer at Bulkhead Interactive
Battalion 1944 recaptures the core of classic multiplayer shooters and propels WW2 into the next generation. Battalion 1944 utilizes the most advanced industry technology to create a visceral and heart-thumping multiplayer experience that has been crafted by the designers who have grown up playing Medal of Honor and Call of Duty 2.
