In addition to the core game, Battalion 1944: First to Fight Edition adds a digital soundtrack and 5 War Chests. It also features a weapon skin exclusive to the pack.
Battalion recaptures the core of classic competitive shooters & refines the ‘classic’ FPS feel for the next generation. Focusing on 5v5 infantry combat, where precise flick shots with your Kar98, covering fire with your Thompson and fluid movement are key to clutching every round for your team.
Classic WWII FPS Roots – Skill Is King
Strike with speed, strength and precision as Battalion’s swift and smooth infantry combat paves the way for a skill ceiling competitive gamers will die for. You won’t find any airstrikes, attack dogs or overpowered god guns here. In Battalion 1944, you, your skill and your rifle reign supreme.
Wartide – Game Mode
Two teams. Two weapon armouries to be fed with the blood of your enemies. Two objectives to defend or blow to smithereens. Five players per team. Thirteen rounds to secure victory.
Wartide is created with competitive players in mind. Every weapon matters and every round counts. Loot corpses to gather weapons for your team to use in later rounds. Then, focus on the map objectives to achieve victory.
Capture the Flag, Domination, Team Deathmatch and Free For All
In addition to Wartide, Battalion 1944 allows you to wage war across Capture the Flag, Domination, Team Deathmatch and Free for All game modes.
Skill Based Matchmaking
Skill based matchmaking rates your performance level and matches you against players who’ll put your skills to the test.
Earned by levelling up as well as from the store, these entirely cosmetic chests allow you to wear your favourite weapon colours with pride when you take to the battlefield.
Dedicated Server & LAN Support
Whether you want to host a mod, run a private competitive match; or ramp the player count well above the recommended settings; Battalion 1944 allows you to host your own dedicated servers.

BATTALION 1944: First To Fight Edition is another great and fun WWII FPS and when you play the game, simply it reminds you of big titles in the genre, like Call of Duty WWII and Battlefield 1 somehow. the gameplay is fast paced and the action are designed pretty well, with balanced matchmaking, varied and challenging modes to play, also it provides dedicated server option which games like COD WWII does not support yet and so you get a better chance to find a good server fit for you connection and ping to play with the least latency possible to get the best experience out of it. BATTALION 1944: First To Fight Edition have some extra addons along with the base game, such as soundtrack which i like it personally and Warchests that come as a micro-transaction prize which you can find them almost on every games now on the market :) the game is still on Early Access phase so keep it mind before you are gonna buy this one, and know there's still works needed to be done for the game :)
BATTALION 1944 is a multiplayer only fast paced, more arcade like, shooter than something like BF1 or Call of Duty WWII. You will use the weapons of the WWII era but recoil is low, bunny hopping is a tactic, and jumping around corners to quick scope with a sniper rifle is a perfectly usable tactic. Game modes are a domination game, capture the flag, deathmatch modes, and a 5 vs 5 objective based mode with one life for each round.Maps and the art style are simple and likely designed to avoid clutter. These design elements and not using anything like kill streak bonuses, vehicles, destructible environments, heroes, etc give you a game more in line with the simpler times of Call of Duty 2. In the current form they will also need to get more servers online which does seem like something they are likely to do soon with the high sales. If you were missing the feel of some older FPS games this will likely appeal to you. The First to Fight Edition includes a soundtrack, five war chests, and a weapon skin. The war chests are chests that you earn from playing the game that will just include cosmetics. None of this is that interesting but if you wanted to support the developer and you like what they are doing then this version might interest you.
Battalion 1944 is yet another Early Access game that tries to revolutionise FPS genre but it fails. This game doesn't have much future in front of it, especially considering they plan to keep it in early access for at least a year. In the state this game is now, it's just unplayable. Serious matchmaking issues, resulting in 10-20 minute wait for a match are a no joke and it's a big fail on devs part to release a game this bad. As for the gameplay itself, it's pretty much what you played years ago in multiplayer - Call of Duty 2, maybe with some influence from 4. First to Fight edition gives you soundtrack that is rather boring to listen and stock. It also gives you loot chests, showing what priorities developers have with this underbaked, unbalanced and buggy game. The biggest issue is the gameplay, because it doesn't bring much new to the table. Sure, old modes coming back like Team Deathmatch is awesome, but when the game is just safe FPS, it won't live for long in day and age where you're either battleroyale or out. It lacks balance or anything making it even slightly interesting. Overall, underdeveloped game that got out of the oven to early. If it would be in early access next year, maybe then it woule be better and more balanced, but for now it's better to pick up Red Orchestra if you want WWII setting or Enemy Teritory.
