War Thunder studio Gaijin announced today that it’s publishing Darkflow Software’s “fan-driven” MMO squad-based multiplayer PC shooter called Enlisted. “Gaijin Entertainment Promises to Reinvest Game Sales into the Development of Additional Content and Consoles Versions of Enlisted,” reads the press release.
“Enlisted will initially offer two massive campaigns – Battle of Moscow and the Battle of Normandy. Each campaign in the game will represent multiple phases of a battle – which during the war lasted for weeks, sometimes months, as well as specific characters and weapons suitable for the historical event recreated in a campaign. It will also offer different game modes where players will be fighting not only by themselves but also together with a platoon of soldiers in massive battles. Built using Gaijin Entertainment’s proprietary Dagor Engine, Enlisted will feature large scale battles with a 100 combatants spread over a massive and richly detailed battlefield complete with destructible landscapes.”
By “fan-driven,” the studios apparently mean “paid for,” as the official site has gone straight to crowdfunding with a big red “back the project” button that asks players to prepurchase mods and early access. The Tunisia campaign unlocks at $250,000, the next tier; players will apparently vote on the campaigns and modules unlocked beyond that. The studios promise a console release at the million-dollar mark.
