D-Day is now confirmed.
World War 2 shooter Battalion 1944 has reached its goal in less than 3 days and now sits at over £140,000.
The passion for WW2 games is still alive and kicking it would seem. I'm sick of re-hashed shooters that are like painting by numbers. I can't wait for this game. May 2017 is a long way off mind.
At last! I personally have wanted a World War 2 shooter for a long time now, so much that for the first time I've put cash down on a Kickstarter project.
The game is multiplayer only at the moment but hopefully we'll see a single player game.
I remember the day when I'd jump on Call of Duty, the good games, and skill meant everything, not how many perks you'd unlocked. Players would drop to prone to make themselves a smaller target and take you out. Battalion 1944 developers seem to realise that joy of what made a great shooter.
Being an older gamer and having done the tour of Normandy and visited some of the maps that will feature in the game has left me very excited.
The only problem? We'll have to wait until May 2017 to get our hands on the game.
Sony........If your reading, get behind this project. If not Sony, just back it all the way! Good luck chaps with the game.
Take a look at this Dev diary and get excited!
