'United 1944' Steam Early Access Date Set For Next Week - Trailer

by Rainier on Dec. 6, 2023 @ 6:00 a.m. PST

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

Squad up in 16v16 base conquest matches in the WW2 theaters of France & North Africa, with more coming soon.

In United 1944, soldiers and civilians will fight together to take the last stand. Domination takes more than being a good marksman, as you’ll have to work together to scavenge for supplies, fortify your HQ, defend outposts, and craft your arsenal if you’re to win the final battle. Overcome your adversaries by using the resources you gathered to build defensive walls, set mines, and block streets with barricades.

There are no predetermined classes in United 1944, so you’ll have to evolve your playstyle to your team’s needs through an open-ended skill tree during each match. Mix and match over 40 abilities across skill trees for engineer, recon, sharpshooter, explorer and support roles. Become a spy when night falls, or a sniper from the rooftop when the new day dawns. Maybe you want to stay out of the frontlines and focus on crafting medicine to heal your teammates. Create your own fighter to help turn the tide of war!

With a dynamic day/night cycle, dense cities where every building is traversable and offers unique lines of sight, and 18 weapons ranging from improvised rifles and makeshift shotguns, to classics such as M1 Garand, MP40, Kar98k, and many more period appropriate firearms, United 1944 seeks to offer the most immersive take on WWII battles yet. You’ll have to use the entirety of the war torn maps to gain a strategic advantage by skillfully traversing rooftops and tunnels while cleverly taking advantage of the time of day to gain the upper hand.

After several public betas, involving thousands of players from all around the world, United 1944 is coming to Steam Early Access on December 12, 2023 for $29.99 USD / 29.99 € / £24.99 and will have a 20% launch discount during one week.

Two large maps and two unique game modes await: fight in France, where the push inward of the Allies was at its peak after D-Day, or North Africa, where battles for control of large regions had an important effect in changing the tide of war. Enter Domination, a 16 vs 16 squad-based battle with base building and territorial control, or jump into Survivor mode, which turns you into a lone wolf at the height of WW2 and brings an extraction-based experience to the game. Any way you choose, you’ll be scavenging for resources, fortifying bases, defending outposts, crafting your gear and fighting the enemy in WWII battles that aim to be realistic yet rooted in fun gameplay. 

Novarama is happy to announce the Early Access of United 1944 will feature a third map, deploying players into the open French countryside, where they will fight for the control of farms, assault bunkers, defend hilltop fortified positions and open fields, to stop the enemy advance in a completely different setting. The Early Access launch will also feature new makeshift guns, including a semi-automatic blow back operated pistol for a mid to close range sustained fire, and an automatic submachine gun heavily inspired in the Polish Bechowiec gun with its iconic top slide. 

This brings the total content for the December 12th launch to two game modes, three large maps, more than 20 weapons, and more than 40 skills, with more on its way starting in early 2024.

A Twitch drops campaign will be happening during the launch week for exclusive rewards to Twitch viewers.

More details on these rewards will be shared soon.
