way, explaining what's happening, and promising a client update tonight. The announcement has
the following details on the game and Early Access:
Collective® is delighted to announce that Battalion 1944™, the old-school WW2
FPS from Derby based studio Bulkhead Interactive™, has entered Early Access on
The shooter - which is designed to replicate the feel of the best FPS games from
the 1990s - albeit with all the extra grunt and gloss of a modern day game –
recently enjoyed a successful beta weekend as a sign off before its Early Access
debut. Now, however, is when things ramp up.
“It’s no exaggeration that Battalion 1944 is the game I’ve always wanted to
make,” says Joe Brammer - Studio Lead at Bulkhead Interactive. “We’ve enjoyed
success at Bulkhead before, but we’re all gamers who grew up playing the best
FPS games, so the idea of making one that stripped things back to the
competitive nature of the shooters of old has been a dream come true.
“What’s even better is seeing the reaction of the gamers who have been able to
play it so far - it seems they’re as excited as we are.”
Bulkhead Interactive previously worked on The Turing Test™ back in 2016, a
celebrated puzzler also published by Square Enix Collective.
