Bulkhead Interactive and Square Enix have an upcoming alpha test for their first-person shooter Battalion 1944, which will take place ahead of a separate upcoming beta. The alpha test will go live for PC players starting on January 6th at 6:00 P.M. / 18:00 GMT.
If you want more information on Battalion 1944 and the alpha test, you can head on over to battaliongame.com. If you’re unaware as to what this FPS WW2 game aims to offer, Battalion 1944 seeks to recapture the core competitive shooter scene, which is said to refine classic FPS mechanics for this generation.
The 5v5 infantry based game will be playable in an alpha state very soon, and if you want to know more about the alpha test and what is going on, a letter explaining Alpha 0.7 sits below:
“This week we’re in Alpha 0.7. Every week that goes by alpha gets more and more important. The bugs that the community find are being squashed by our programmers. The balancing issues that are brought to light are being tackled by our designers as final tweaks and fixes are being applied.”
Aside from squashing bugs, a new map named Coastal will be joining both the competitive and casual map rotations, which is joined by the Derailed map rework.
No word on the beta has been given, although the devs made mention that they are getting ready for it, but gamers who are signed-up for Battalion 1944’s alpha will be able to join on January 6th at 6:00 P.M. / 18:00 GMT.
The official change log for Alpha 0.7 can be thoroughly looked over by heading on over to the Battalion 1944 Steam Early Access news page.
Lastly, Bulkhead Interactive noted some time back that Battalion 1944 will be made available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, but it will ship through Steam Early Access as a testing phase for PC. The game will later debut for consoles when complete.
