Battalion 1944 revamps and fixes much in ‘major’ update

"TOTAL REWORK," declares a trailer for Battalion 1944's new free update. "THE COMMUNITY HAS BEEN HEARD." Bulkhead Interactive's World War 2 multiplayer FPS got off to a rocky start in early access, see. Our Alec admired what he played, even if his clicking finger has grown slow and preoccupied in his old age, but he did note a number of problems - and players did…

Steam Charts: Mystery No. 9 Edition

Battalion 1944 is bringing the fight to EGX Rezzed

Battalion 1944 [official site] managed to get onto my good side within seconds of poring over the website for details. It does that by dispensing with buffs and unlocks, in an attempt to deliver a purely skill-based multiplayer shooter. It looks cracking too, with tight maps based on actual WWII locations. The proof, as ever, will be in the pudding though, and you'll be able…

The mewling pup that goes by the name 2017 will come into the world soon and we must prepare ourselves for its arrival. Here at RPS, our preparations come in the form of this enormous preview feature,…
