“We’re stripping out unbalanced unlocks, over-powered abilities, just to try and reinstate the fun and the skill of the game,” says executive producer, Joe Brammer.
Despite the removal of modern-day unlocks, players will still be able to unlock customisation options, ranging from gun engraving, clan insignias, and different uniforms.
The game also uses real-world locations for maps, including the streets of Carentan and the forests of Bastogne.
Battalion 1944 will have multiple seasons through Battlerank – Bulkhead’s global competition system. Each season, players will be able to participate in events to earn cosmetic rewards for their avatar, weapons, or accessories (none of which have a bearing in-game).
