Enlisted, A Squad Based MMO Shooter, Coming to Xbox One Game Preview
Although I watched Microsofts E3 Stream, I think I missed this, but god bless those PR folk who remind of of such things. Darkflow Software and Gaijin Entertainment announced that their upcoming squad based MMO shooter Enlisted will release on Xbox Game Preview in 2018.
Those who choose to enlist (see what we did there?) will be able to strap on the boots of American, Soviet, and German soldiers, and jump into massive WWII battles with hundreds of soldiers and thousands of bullets flying everywhere. Enlisted’s game mechanics of an AI controlled squad transforms the traditional military multiplayer FPS game into a more realistic and chaotic warfare experience, making battles dynamic and massive. Enlisted offers several game modes for all tastes, from extended comprehensive battles through more fast-paced action to Battle Royale.
The Xbox Game Preview version of Enlisted will allow players to test out and enjoy several game modes: Invasion, Offensive, City Battle, and Battle Royale.
“Invasion” will offer battles with asymmetrical gameplay, where two teams will need to complete different tasks: one will be capturing and holding a large territory, while the second will try to liquidate all the invaders. The mode will throw players right into the heart of the battle. Each player will form and lead a squad of AI controlled soldiers. Squad members will follow players commands and provide them with additional lives – every time the main character dies, the player will get full control of the nearest soldier from their squad. This will help a player get back to the battle in a blink and participate in the combat longer.
Those who prefer a more consistent and thoughtful battle will enjoy “Offensive” mode. Here players will be able to build fortifications, drive vehicles, and use large caliber guns. The distances on the map will be greater than in “Invasion”, so the value of each decision and action will be higher. Players can also expect city battles for multiple numbers of participants.
The game will also feature a Battle Royale mode. This mode will include unique Team Battle Royale, where each of two teams will be representing one of the nations that fought in WW2. Players will be able to use heavy vehicles like tanks.
