Battalion 1944 - Official Pre-Announcement Trailer (2018)

Hey everyone,  

Today we’re officially emerging from the dark. We have some massive things coming in 2018. It’s time to start getting hyped.

As Winston Churchill famously said after winning The Battle of Britain;
“Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.” 

From here on in Battalion is going to get even more exciting. I’m considering this the end of the beginning of this amazing project that I’ve been lucky enough to be a part of. From its inception, we have strived to create a game worthy of sharing the experience of the classic shooters that many of us grew up playing and arguably more importantly, the experience that many people are to young to have enjoyed.

This is it, Battalion has built a strong base that has time and time again received exceptionally good feedback, better feedback than we ever anticipated. We’ve listened to our community and we’ve applied changes they’ve asked for in every alpha.  

Soon, in beta, you’ll have the chance to do the same, and then again in early access. The process of this developer listening and reacting to the community won’t ever stop. Be vocal and be supportive and we’ll keep working hard to produce the real ‘back to the roots’ shooter of the year. 

Here’s our official announcement of our gameplay trailer, which is coming January 9th, 2018.

You guys have been amazingly patient these past few months. We’re still working ridiculously hard - but now is when we start gearing up for the big announcements coming in 2018. Our social media accounts are now back online - you’ll see us tweeting again from tomorrow and we’ll be more active in general.

For those of you who are participating in the alpha tests this weekend, please remember the game is under NDA still, however we would appreciate you sharing this trailer to your friends and letting people know what you think of tha game so far! We’re happy for people to discuss the alpha, but absolutely no audio, video, or image content should be shared publicly.

We’ve also updated our Steam page with our latest branding for Battalion 1944, check it out and add the game to your Steam wishlist!

      I'm very enthusiastic about Battalion and the work, effort and progress updates you guys provide. BUT: I'm really not a fan of you using a personal tragedy to promote the game - are you worried that it won't sell itself?
