Derby, UK (9th Aug, 2022), BULKHEAD is pleased to announce their new chapter after formally ending their relationship with Square Enix and the subsequent release of Battalion: Legacy on 16th August 2022. The updated, overhauled, final update to Battalion will be released for free alongside the cancellation of Battalion 1944’s console port. Consequently, BULKHEAD will be refunding all console backers of the Kickstarter.

 

BATTALION: Legacy is the culmination of all of the work previously put into Battalion 1944 and its console version. We will be releasing a stable game for free with a server browser, an added faction, new weapons, classic Search & Destroy game mode, and visual overhaul. We are focusing on the core of what was great about Battalion: old school search and destroys, team deathmatches, and a rifles only mode. 

 

We will be pursuing our goal of designing and releasing ‘AAA’ quality first person shooters across multiple platforms for the players. With this in mind, BULKHEAD has multiple announcements coming this year featuring new projects alongside other exciting news. 

 

AVAILABILITY: 

BATTALION: Legacy will be available on Steam for free on 16th August 2022.
