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. Here’s word:

Fight on the frontlines of World War 2 in this stylized tactical shooter. Engage in large open environments with a variety of weapons and equipment during the pinnacle of World War 2. Make smart decisions, and lead your team to victory.

Warfare 1944 focuses on tactical gameplay. Bullets are deadly, one shot can kill. Team communication is essential and Warfare 1944 features robust proximity voice communication which allows you to communicate with your fellow soldiers alongside you. Wield a wide variety of weapons and equipment while you attempt to survive the chaos of war. Rally your friends to your team, and fight in massive battles across vast open landscapes. Keep your wits, and defeat your enemies. Warfare is unforgiving.

Independent UK developer Rebellion has promised a significant announcement in the coming week for its award-winning World War II shooter series, Sniper Elite.

With Sniper Elite 3 releasing June 27th, gamers might be surprised to hear that the upcoming announcement is not about its forthcoming title, while the teaser artwork released only features the series iconic eagle motif.

Rebellion’s CEO and Creative Director Jason Kingsley explains:

“We couldn’t be more excited about Sniper Elite 3’s launch on June 27th. Naturally, being on five platforms – including the new consoles – means it’s had more attention than anything we’ve made before. We’ve been taken aback with the interest and reception so far.”

“But there’s always more work to be done getting the Sniper Elite name in the hearts and minds of gamers who are new to the IP, or aren’t aware of the stealth and emergent gameplay that surrounds the core sniping mechanics”

“Next week’s news will be a huge step towards this goal.”
