Novarama, the developers behind Killsquad, have recently announced their latest multiplayer FPS game, United 1944. This game combines shooting, strategy and crafting, and it’s set to have its first Steam Closed Beta on the weekend of May 19th-21st. The beta phase will be playable for 4 hours per day, allowing players to have a sneak peek at the game before the full commercial launch on PC later this year.
In United 1944, players will squad up in 16v16 base conquest matches set in the WW2 theaters of North Africa, with more maps, such as France and Russia, coming soon. The beta will let players experience the thrilling Domination mode, where you must scavenge for resources, craft weapons, find enemy intel documents, establish outposts, and destroy all enemy bases.
There are no predetermined classes in United 1944, so players will have to evolve their play style to their team’s needs through an open-ended skill tree during each match. With over 40 abilities across skill trees for engineer, recon, sharpshooter, explorer, and support roles, players can create their own fighter to help turn the tide of war.
The game also offers a dynamic day/night cycle, dense cities where every building is traversable and offers unique lines of sight, and 18 weapons ranging from improvised rifles and makeshift shotguns, to classics such as M1 Garand, MP40, Kar98k, and many more period appropriate firearms. With all these features, United 1944 aims to offer the most immersive take on WWII battles yet.
Players can now request access to the beta on the United 1944 Steam page. However, note that submitting a request does not guarantee access to the beta, as players will be selected randomly. If you don’t get in this time, don’t worry, as more beta tests will follow in the coming months.
To add to the excitement, Novarama also unveiled an all-new video of United 1944, in which Game Director Dani Sanchez-Crespo goes over the Player Journey, the different phases the player will engage in during the battle: exploration, conquest, consolidation and final assault.
In conclusion, if you’re a fan of FPS games and are eager to try out United 1944, make sure to request access to the beta on the Steam page or join the game’s Discord to keep up to date on future beta tests. United 1944 offers a unique and immersive take on WWII battles and is definitely worth checking out. What would you do if you were really there, in 1944?
