From Press Release:
Barcelona, Spain, September 29, 2023 – A free playtest of Novarama’s upcoming WWII-themed first-person shooter begins today. Starting now and until Sunday October 1 at midnight PT, battles are waged across the French cities fighting for liberation and in the North Africa operations. You’ll need a lot more than just your shooting skills to stay standing, however, as this unique take on urban fighting features crafting and building as centerpieces of survival. And speaking of survival, let the team show you the new Survivor mode they’re debuting now:
You’ll be scavenging for resources, fortifying bases, defending outposts, crafting your gear and fighting the enemy in WWII battles that aim to be realistic yet rooted in fun gameplay. Squad up in 16v16 domination matches in the WWII theaters of a new map set in a French city, where the push inward of the Allies was at its peak after D-Day, and a revamped and improved North Africa map, with better team balancing and new landmarks. Many new features have been implemented following player feedback, including an updated day-night cycle, improved movement, and new guns.
This is your chance to prove yourself not only in action-packed domination matches, but also in an all new survivor mode! This new mode appears today for the first time and takes the scavenging and open construction approach to a whole new level of tension. It’s a dog-eat-dog world: everyone is an enemy, and your only means of staying alive is what you can find around you. Look for resources, explore the city, and set up improvised bases anywhere as you fight for survival. Build, raid, kill, steal, scavenge, and destroy as you need for survival. Play for as long as you want, do your best to stay standing, and extract with as much loot as you’re capable of. Will you become a survivor of World War II… or will your bones be buried forever in this city?
This closed beta runs uninterrupted for almost three full days starting now and ending on Sunday October 1 at midnight PT, with servers in Europe, North America, and Asia to ensure that all players in these regions get a smooth experience in the battle trenches. To request access to the beta, you can click the ‘Request access’ button on the UNITED 1944 Steam page and join the official Discord server for developer updates, feedback and technical support. Please note that while the development team has ensured that capacity is large enough, submitting a request DOES NOT guarantee that you’ll have access, so we encourage you to enlist now! If you participated in the previous beta of UNITED 1944, you don’t need to request access again, as you can download the game directly and load up straight into battle anytime during the weekend!
A Twitch drops campaign is also taking place now, creators can participate by linking their account and broadcasting the game, granting their viewers with a weapon charm and a character outfit.
