'Enlisted' (ALL) Battle of Berlin Alpha Playtest Weekend - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on May 8, 2020 @ 7:46 p.m. PDT

Enlisted is a squad-based MMO shooter game reconstructing the most important large scale World War II battles.

In Enlisted, players strap on the boots of American, Soviet, and German soldiers, and jump into massive WWII battles with hundreds of soldiers and thousands of bullets flying everywhere. Enlisted’s unique game mechanics of an AI controlled squad transforms the traditional military multiplayer FPS game into a more realistic and chaotic warfare experience, making battles dynamic and massive. For more information, please see the media alert below my signature.

Set in World War II, Enlisted aims to deliver a realistic, action-packed infantry and vehicle combat experience featuring authentic equipment on large battlefields scaling over multiple theaters of war.

Gaijin Entertainment and Darkflow Software studio announce the start of the second public playtest of Enlisted.

Players will try the new Battle of Berlin map for the first time and will participate in the assault on the Reich Chancellery and the Fuhrerbunker. The testing will take place this weekend to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Victory Day.

The gear and vehicles available at the Battle of Berlin are completely different from those seen a month ago, in the Battle of Moscow playtest. The scenario features new firearms like the PPS-42 and PPS-43 SMGs, RD-44 and FG 42 Model I machine guns, StG 44 and MP 43/1 assault rifles. Soviet T-43-85 and IS-2 tanks fiercely fight the German Panther G and Tiger II models, German soldiers with RPzB. 43 Panzerschreck reusable anti-tank grenade launchers hide in the narrow Berlin sidewalks, Soviets throw Molotov cocktails through suspicious-looking windows, while the completely playable mortar squads provide supporting fire to the frontline infantry – this is what a typical Enlisted gameplay session looks like.

Darkflow Software team studied the April playtest feedback closely and improved the soldiers AI, tone mapping algorithms and the semi-automatic weapons recoil. The studio also added a new game mode called Assault in which the attackers capture enemy territory by holding strategic points while the defenders not only fight back but also have a chance to take back the lost ground. 

The game client and all the information about the project are available at the official Enlisted website.

Key features of the test
  • Ground vehicles from the end of WWII.
  • New weapons, including mortars and grenade launchers.
  • A new game mode.
  • New location “Berlin” (assault of the Reich Chancellery).
  • Many other important improvements in the game mechanics.
Improvements based on your feedback

Your feedback helps us in the development! Here are the most notable changes which have been made thanks to your comments. 

  • Many improvements to the AI squads: Soldiers now overcome obstacles better, react more quickly to danger, avoid fire and extinguish themselves when on fire. We are continuing to work on developing the AI!
  • Optimized battle interface — less unnecessary messages and hints, as well as reducing some interface details.
  • The behavior of semi-automatic rifles has been improved. We have worked on this mechanic and adjusted it.
  • New missions are now more large-scaled - distances and maneuverable areas have been increased for even greater tactical possibilities.
