TEAM17 AND PETROGLYPH REVEAL FORGED BATTALION
Announcement teaser trailer CLICK HERE
16th October 2017, UK – Award-winning international games label Team17 today announced that it has partnered with Westwood Studios and Command & Conquer veterans Petroglyph Games to bring Forged Battalion, an innovative and dynamic take on the classic genre, to Steam Early Access in early 2018.
In Forged Battalion players will build and customise their own unique faction as they fight in a variety of skirmish, solo, and multiplayer battles. The players are not only commanders, but also engineers – so they have ultimate control over their faction’s units, factories, superweapons and economy.
Towards the end of the 21st century, the effects of climate change have devastated the world and a military force called “The Collective” has spread across the globe. As part of the resistance group against this aggressive enemy, it’s time for you to join the fight!
Create, customise, and develop the blueprints of your emerging faction to create ever-evolving factories and units. Using resources gained from each battle, you will unlock new options through the metagame tech tree allowing you to choose the archetype, and an array of armours, locomotors, weapons, and special abilities such as stealth and regeneration that will make your faction one of a kind. As more technology is unlocked, your designs become more advanced. Ultimately, you will have access to the most powerful options, including an array of deadly superweapons to launch against your foes.
