'Post Scriptum' IP Acquired By Offworld Industries, New Update And Content Roadmap Planned

United 1944 is a multiplayer FPS that combines shooter, strategy and crafting to offer an immersive war experience.

Players will relive the events of ‘Operation Market Garden’ across the fields and towns of Holland.

This massive Allied assault consisted of a coordination of the British and American Airborne to capture key bridges while the British XXXth Corps moved to reinforce them through Highway 69. However, consecutive delays in consolidating ground from the north of Belgium through Nijmegen forced the 1st British Airborne Division in Arnhem to make a stand much longer than anticipated. With no successful link between the XXXth Corps and the Airborne in sight, the seventh and final bridge in Arnhem was considered lost.

In a 40 vs. 40 multiplayer setting, players will be given the option to fight with the British Airborne Division and its Polish brigade, British XXX Corps, US Airborne (Post-Release) or several branches of the German Army, such as the Wehrmacht or the Waffen SS. It’s a rare opportunity to experience the intense battlefield that was the Battle of Arnhem, which stretched across farms, woods, villages and city areas. Each area is being accurately recreated from archival references that range from street level to aerial images. Whether you’re jumping out of a plane, resupplying friendlies or operating a tank you will find multiple reasons to drop back into the battlefield in this grand scaled representation of a WW2 setting never explored in a large multiplayer environment.

Offworld Industries is proud to announce the successful purchase of Post Scriptum, the WWII tactical FPS that began as a mod to their military shooter Squad and later became a standalone title developed by Periscope Games. Post Scriptum will be brought  under the Offworld umbrella with the acquisition completed.

Offworld Industries will collaborate with Mercury Arts on the title and is working on a new update and 2024 roadmap with internal Offworld staff. Offworld will also be reaching out to the community server hosts who have continued to support the game and will directly support them in recognition of their ongoing efforts. The goal is to grow the player community and re-establish Post Scriptum as the premier WWII tactical FPS.

After its humble beginnings as a breakout, community-built mod for Squad, Post Scriptum was officially released as its own standalone title in August 2018 by Periscope Games. With an emphasis on authentic immersion and collaborative, tactical gameplay, Post Scriptum quickly became celebrated for its impressive arsenal of period-appropriate weapons and vehicles, as well as detailed maps that effectively recreate the real-life battlefields of the Second World War.
