Carefully recreated with weaponry, military vehicles and atmosphere of the era, Enlisted is a squad-based first person MMO shooter covering key battles from World War II. And today it has been confirmed as an Xbox Series X|S launch title, with timed console exclusivity.
Coming from those at Gaijin Entertainment and Darkflow Software studio, Enlisted will be part of the Xbox Series X|S launch line-up, initially rolling out as a Game Preview title. A timed console exclusive, the purchase of a Founders Pack will be required for you to get in on the action, with the Battle for Moscow kicking things off as the first campaign available, with the Normandy Invasion to follow further down the line.
Battles in Enlisted will take place both on the ground and in the air, while players assume the roles of an infantry squad, a tank crew commander or an aircraft pilot. Each squad consists of several soldiers that can be trained, equipped with new gear and weapons and taken into battle. With Enlisted though it’s entirely possible to freely switch between them, ensuring that when things go quiet in one part of the battlefield, you can stay in the most interesting point of the battle even when some of the soldiers in the squad have already fallen.
Enlisted will be split down into campaigns, each of them covering a specific key battle of World War II. Available factions, squads, weapons, gear, ground vehicles and aircraft depend on the gear that was really present in the specific theater of operations, leading to a unique experience provided by each campaign. At first, players will be able to fight in the “Battle for Moscow” that recreates the heavy clashes between German and Soviet troops in the outskirts of the Russian capital during the winter of 1941-1942. The next campaign to arrive in the Game Preview will be the “Normandy Invasion” covering D-Day landing and following battles. Further to that though and Darkflow and Gaijin are already working on additional options, with the Battle for Berlin and others in development.
Utilising a new version of Dagor engine – the one that War Thunder and brutal online shooter Cuisine Royale roll with – a Proprietary Ray Traced Global Illumination system will ensure that the in-game lighting is natural in appearance, reacts to game events like explosions and object destruction and will work better on the Xbox Series X|S thanks to ray tracing hardware support on the platform. The Xbox Series X version will run at 4K resolution, and Xbox Series S at 1440p, while in both cases, a stable 60 frames per second are achieved.
Xbox Series X|S Game Preview players will be among the first to try the Enlisted beta version that follows a couple of time-limited playtests and closed alpha testing.
