'Batalj' Closed Beta Extended Until End Of January

by Rainier on Jan. 3, 2019 @ 7:00 a.m. PST

Batalj is a fierce online turn-based action strategy game where you face other players in one vs one battles with your own custom-built squad.

Skill and smart plays decides who comes out victorious. With several unique mechanics and an action packed art style, Batalj is a fresh addition to the strategic turn based genre. The title means "Combat" in Swedish, a nod to the Fall Damage founders' background in AAA First Person Shooters. With three factions, multiple heroes and units you can try out different combinations, discover synergies and explore strategies that fits your playstyle. Your custom-made squad consists of unique units with a wide range of versatile abilities that can change the tide of battle.

Batalj has a completely new take on simultaneous turns and brings new mechanics to the genre. Each round consists of a planning phase and an action phase where you schedule your squad’s actions and watch them execute your orders. Your ability to strategize, and outsmart your opponent will be crucial. Batalj will challenge you with its depth and fast gameplay.

The Batalj community keeps growing and Fall Damage Studio has decided to extend the beta into January following the Closed Beta success during the end of 2018.

“Shutting down the Closed Beta at New Year’s Eve didn’t feel like the right thing to do considering our active dialogue with our community that keeps getting better and better. Instead, extending the Closed Beta to the end of the month with a huge update coming in the second week of January including a new map, new units and new heroes. We’re excited to see how the meta changes.” said Dan Vaderlind, Chief Operations Officer at Fall Damage.

Batalj is in Closed Beta for PC, but still welcomes new players; go to the official website and sign up.
