Representatives of Gaijin Entertainment and Darkflow Software studio announced the start of the WWII shooter’s open beta tests, Enlisted.
There is currently a closed paid beta that will be open to all players on April 8, 2021. This title will then be available to the owners of PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X. Simultaneously, the game will include new game modes, new missions, new vehicles, and new weapons.
Enlisted allows players to control the infantry, tanks, and aircraft from World War II. The gameplay is divided into campaigns. The first of them, made available to players, covers Moscow’s fierce defense in late 1941 and early 1942.
Enlisted battles take place both on the ground and in the air. The players act as the commander of an infantry unit, an armored crew, or an airplane pilot. Each unit consists of several soldiers trained, equipped with new equipment and weapons, and sent to combat. It is possible to switch freely between them to be in the most interesting place of the battle all the time, even if some of the soldiers in the team have already died.
Enlisted is divided into campaigns, each one covering a specific, key battle of World War II. The available factions, troops, weapons, equipment, ground vehicles, and planes depend on the specific warfare’s historical realities. It provides a unique experience related to a given campaign. In the beginning, players will be able to participate in the “Battle for Moscow,” which recreates the tough battles between German and Soviet troops on the Russian capital’s outskirts in the winter of 1941-1942. The next campaign to appear as part of the Game Preview will be “The Channel Invasion,” covering D-Day and subsequent battles. More campaigns are already under preparation, including “Battle for Berlin.”
The game uses a new version of the Dagor engine known on War Thunder and Cuisine Royale. Enlisted’s global lighting system makes the light in the game look natural, reacts to explosions or destruction of objects, and will work even better on the Xbox Series X | S console thanks to hardware ray tracing support. The Enlisted on Xbox will play in the Series X 4K resolution, while the Xbox S Series 1440p. In both cases, the title hits a stable 60 frames per second.
