Indie development studio Bulkhead Interactive has announced its shooter game Battalion 1944 will be free to play this weekend. The game will also be getting the Autumn update tomorrow.


Battalion 1944 aims to bring back the classic World War II multiplayer shooter experience found in early Call of Duty games. Its main focus is on 5v5 infantry combat, where precise flick shots with your Kar98, covering fire with your Thompson and fluid movement are key to clutching every round for your team.

The game currently features the competitive Wartide mode powered by FaceIt matchmaking, several Arcade modes for casual play, and an unranked Wartide mode to experience it without competitive pressure.

The game's upcoming Autumn update is expected to be released tomorrow. The update will introduce the sixth BattleRank season, bringing new weapon skins to unlock and a level reset to work through all reward tiers again.

The Battalion 1944 free weekend will be available on Steam between October 3, 2019, and October 7, 2019. The exact times are available on our Events Calendar. A 50% off sale will also be available for the duration of the event.
