It seems that Bulkhead Interactive’s Battalion 1944 is not the only WWII game trying to add light to this seemingly baron landscape.
Days of War from Driven Arts is currently drafting fresh faced backers to its Kickstarter campaign, and like Battalion 1944, it aims to provide a competitive multiplayer experience with the sole aim to “revive the style of classic WWII shooters from the 2000-2010 era.”
The game has been been in development for the past 2 years, utilising the Unreal Engine 4, and values competition more than anything else, where “The only way to gain an advantage over your opponent is a more accurate shot, or a better strategic position. Sharp corners, fast movement and powerful weapons: Days of War is about cold steel and hot lead. You and your rifle, no more, no less.”
Modding communities will be able to have free reign over “Custom map creation, editable rulesets and dedicated server hosting tools. Tun[ing] Days of War to be the game you and your clanmates want it to be.”
Below is the timeline for development with milestones for Alpha, Early Access, Beta and Final Release. Make sure you check out the trailer above.
There certainly seems to be a resurgence in the development of WWII shooters, and who knows, we may even see a AAA game in the near future, fingers crossed. Click here to check out my feature about why I think it’s time to reboot WWII shooters.
