New Battalion 1944 trailer released, stretch goals updated with single-player

Bulkhead Interactive has taken to Kickstarter to announce a plethora of new stretch goals for its upcoming PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One World War II-based shooter, Battalion 1944.

Having just reached its £225,000 goal for a full-time community manager, Bulkhead has confirmed the game’s crowdfunding has now been expanded to include a single-player campaign if £1,200,000 is raised for the project.

Of course, the multiplayer is the primary focus of the shooter, and there’s a heap of other stretch goals to come before things start hitting the one million barrier. The next few goals are as follows: Enhanced Particle Effects (£250,000), Currahee Bootcamp Map (£275,000) and Competitive D-Day Map (£300,000).

In addition, there’s also country-specific weapons up for grabs as the stretch goals get more ambitious, with an Offline Behind Enemy Lines Mode available when and if £500,000 is raised for the project. 

For our larger goals we’ll be looking to make large expansions of the base game, for example at £600,000 we’ll be looking to introduce the pacific theatre to the game, allowing players to fight the Japanese across maps set in the Pacific, South-East Asia, and in China. We’ll expand on this content more if the goal is reached,” said Bulkhead.

One massive request from the larger community was to add a single player campaign. Whilst the heart of Battalion lies in the multiplayer experience (which will always be our core focus), we would consider adding a single player campaign if we reached £1,200,000. Good single player campaigns aren’t cheap to make, there’s no ‘add single player’ button for us; it would cost a lot of time and money to make, hence the large funding goal.”
