The first shots are being fired in Warfare 1944, which is now available in Early Access for Windows on Steam. This is a World War II tactical shooter developed by Drakeling Labs in conjunction with undead publisher MicroProse. They say this release is to help support further development of Drakeling’s Operation: Harsh Doorstop even though Warfare 1944 is still in its nascent stages: “This is a very early version of the game, an alpha demo that is primarily aimed at testing and feedback-gathering.” A Development Blog from a few weeks ago discusses the project, and the Announcement Teaser Video from the same time offers a look at gameplay.
