There is something in the history of World War II that fascinates people…perhaps it’s the history, perhaps it’s the old school weapons or maybe they want a peek at that period without any danger coming to them, or maybe it’s all of that.
Games that depict WWII always had large fan base of players. I personally started with WWII Shooters and always loved that type of games.
We didn’t get any good WWII Shooters in a while now. Call of Duty ditched WWII games, and started focusing on modern shooters and futuristic theme(not the best move). Battlefield and Medal of Honor did the same thing. Battlefield had success, unlike Medal of Honor. Then a few months ago Battlefield1 came out ,it is an amazing game placed on the battlefields of WWI. Similar, but still not WWII.
This year we are finally going to receive some WWII games…Battalion1944, Days of War, Enlisted, RAID: World War II.
Battalion1944 is WWII First Person Shooter made by Bulkhead Interactive studios. Game makers say that they were spending days and days playing classic WWII Shooters like CoD2 and Medal of Honor and they tried to recreate that. Like they said, to win exo-suits of any kind won’t matter or kill streaks or anything like that, only your pure skill and good tactics. Game will have BattleRank Competitions in which you can take part alone or with your friends. UnrealEngine4 is responsible for our visual experience. As stated the game will be impacted by CoD2 and CoD4 also many say that the game will be like CoD2 with movements of CoD4 ProMod. Game releases in May, 2017.
Days of War
Days of War is one more WWII First Person Shooter as Battalion1944 made by Driven Arts studio. Game will be fast paced and class based so every solider will have different role on the battlefield. Game looks pretty good thanks to the UnrealEngine4. Release date is 26th of January… so soon.
Enlisted is MMO squad based Shooter placed on some of the most important and famous battlefronts of World War II. Players will have the ability of playing in first or in third person mode. As in a real war, in Enlisted you won´t see two of the same weapon, because every weapon will have its features and history. Famous WWII battles will be separated in different campaigns as they are separately developed. DagorEngine is responsible for the visuals and it offers dynamic water and sky movements and lots and lots of details. Release is scheduled for second half of 2017.
RAID: World War II
RAID: World War II is the first game from Lion Game Lion studio. Lion Game Lion is Croatian game developing studio placed in Zagreb. Game will be action-packed four player co-op shooter. Players will be placed in WWII as raiders fighting on the side of Allies in different undercover missions while stealing Nazi treasures. The game is made in DieselEngine while the release is scheduled for summer of 2017.
These four games are bringing back Word War II. Are they worth of our time and money is for us to decide, but they seem pretty good.
Is WWII era coming back to PCs and consoles…I think I’m saying this for all of us, I hope so…
