'Forged Battalion' Available On Steam Early Access Date - Screens & Trailer

Forged Battalion is a real-time strategy game where 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.


Forged Battalion is now available on Steam Early Access ($19.99 with a 15% launch week discount) and contains the following:

  • Campaign missions comprising the first act of a multi-act storyline
  • Skirmish maps supporting up to eight players
  • Multiple Skirmish game modes including HQ Destruction and Annihilation
  • Dedicated servers to support multiplayer
  • Five customisable archetypes of vehicles (infantry, light vehicle, heavy vehicle, air and turrets)
  • Resource management of tech tree points earned in tactical battles

The Early Access period for Forged Battalion is planned to run for several months, during which there will be regular content updates and players are encouraged to give vital feedback to the development team. “We want fans to truly help forge what the game becomes…” Said Chuck Kroegel, CEO of Petroglyph.

Key Features:

  • Forge Your Faction - Modify every unit chassis (Infantry, Light Vehicle, Heavy Vehicle, Aircraft) with a host of weapons, support and locomotor types. Add regenerative armour to your light vehicle, or add an anti-tank gun to your aircraft. Adapt to every situation, and every opponent.
  • Persistent Tech tree - Each battle you fight, in each mode, contributes towards your faction’s technology upgrades with different science paths; advancing the tech tree unlocks blueprints.
  • A dynamic story campaign - The Resistance needs you to forge a new force to be reckoned with. Play through an exciting story campaign that will test your ability to react and adapt to the increasing threat of the “The Collective”.
  • Online multiplayer - Join up to seven other players in a variety of online multiplayer modes for intense tactical co-operative and versus action on dedicated servers.
  • Steam Workshop support
