Squad 44 is a World War 2 themed tactical first-person shooter game, focusing on historical accuracy, large scale battles, a steep learning curve and an intense need for communication, cohesion and teamwork to achieve victory. 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!
With each significant location being accurately recreated from archival references that range from street level photographs to aerial images, we hope to deliver a rare opportunity to experience these intense battlefields with a real emphasis on authenticity.
With a future release series, we will explore the conflict across the war’s theaters with each new chapter bringing new game modes, battlefields and factions, including their associated weaponry and vehicles
Squad 44 Chapter 1 – ‘The Bloody Seventh’
Our initial release follows the struggles the British and American paratroopers had to endure while waiting for their army counterpart to establish a link through the Lower Rhine in Operation Market Garden. The allies, consisting of the British 1st Airborne Division and its Polish brigade, British Army XXX Corps, the American 82nd and 101st Airborne divisions fought against several branches of the German Army, including the Wehrmacht and the Waffen SS across multiple significant bridge crossings through the Netherlands.
Squad 44 – ‘Armored’
New ‘Armored’ game mode will give players the chance to battle it out in brutal, multiple crew 12v12 vehicle warfare. From armored recon vehicles to several different types of tanks, pick yourself a role and vehicle to help your team seize territory and advance across huge battlefields. In armored crews, your mission is to capture objectives and work with your team to exploit the weaknesses’ of your enemies. To achieve victory, teams will need to preserve tickets by controlling the majority of objective areas and destroying the enemy. Heavier vehicles play a vital role as they are able to capture objectives much faster than lighter vehicles. This requires players to organize the distribution of different vehicle classes strategically over the battlefield.

– Objective-based capture zones
– Multi-crew (3 to 4 players in each tank)
