Forged Battalion has been announced

17 October 2017 - 02:03 AM

Petroglyph Studios has announced a new RTS game for Steam known as Forged Battalion. Here's the trailer:



In this game, you're part of a resistance group, taking the world back from a military force called The Collective at the end of the 21st century.

It should come with the following features:

- Strong focus on unit customisation and building your own faction. You can alter every unit's chassis with different weapons, locomotor types and regenerative armor.
- There will be a 'persistent tech tree', meaning that each battle will contribute to your overall progress, helping to unlock new blueprints.
- There'll also be co-op and competitive multiplayer for up to eight players, also something that is being called a 'dynamic story campaign' and Steam Workshop support.
- Expect superweapons.
- The first early access version should include at least five campaign missions, different multiplayer modes and five multiplayer maps.

Forged Battalion will launch in 2018 on Steam Early Access. Thanks to Plokite_Wolf for the news tip.
