New World War II First Person Shooter Game in Development – Watch The Trailer

A new first-person shooter game for the PC was announced by Gaijin Entertainment. The game is set in World War II and is called “Enlisted.” It’s a squad-based online multiplayer game that also comes with a campaign mode based on real historical battles.

The game is being developed by Latvian-based Darkflow Software.  It will run on Gaijin Entertainment’s Dagor Engine. The online multiplayer portion of the game will have large-scale battles of up to 100 players on incredibly detailed maps with destructible elements.

Unlike many other shooters on the market, “Enlisted” will force players to stick to their objectives.  One squad will be tasked with defending an objective while another must stop the enemy from entering a zone.  According to Darkflow, this is something that has been available in single-player games but not multiplayer.

The campaigns will work as stand-alone games. Two are already ready for pre-order.  The Battle of Moscow and the Invasion of Normandy are available now for pre-order at $22 each or both for $50.  Pre-ordering both campaigns gets you access to three weapons and early access to the beta version of the game. The beta version is expected to be out in the second half of 2017, International Business Times reported.

Darkflow intends to continue updating the game based on feedback from the players. “It will be a first-person shooter decided by the fans, for the fans,” according to producer Alexander Nagorny.  “They will have direct input into what we create including things like campaigns, game modes, even which platforms after PC we support.”

A crowdfunding campaign has been set up on the official website.  Fans can back the project and get special in-game items. They are currently seeking $250,000 to complete a Tunisia campaign. The next two goals will be determined after fans have a chance to vote.  The final goal of $1 million is set for developing “Enlisted” for consoles.
