Reinforcements have arrived!
Today we’re very excited to reveal that Forged Battalion, the innovative and dynamic new take on the real-time strategy genre from Command & Conquer veterans Petroglyph will be available via Steam early access on 16th January 2018.
In Forged Battalion you’ll be tasked with building and customising your own unique faction as you fight in a variety of skirmish, solo and multiplayer battles. You will create, customise, and develop the blueprints of your own emerging faction to create ever-evolving factories and units.
Using resources earned from each and every battle, you’ll unlock new options through the tech tree allowing you to choose the archetype, and an array of armours, locomotors, weapons, and special abilities such as stealth and regeneration that will make your faction one of a kind.
Why Early Access?
“The early access release of Forged Battalion is a vital part of developing the game.” Chuck Kroegel CEO of Petroglyph said. “We want fans to truly help forge what the game becomes so it’s important to get them into the game as soon as possible and start giving us their feedback. We can’t wait to see the unique factions that the community will create. We’ll see you on the battlefield!”
Player feedback will craft Forged Battalion into a player driven game, supporting a balanced competitive environment that is fun and rewarding for both new and veteran RTS players alike.
What’s coming with the Early Access Launch?
Forged Battalion’s Early Access Launch Content will consist of:
- Campaign missions comprising the first act of a multi-act storyline
- Skirmish maps supporting up to eight players and/or AI
- Multiple Skirmish game modes including HQ Destruction and Annihilation
- Dedicated servers to support multiplayer
- Five customisable archetypes of units (infantry, light vehicle, heavy vehicle, air and turrets)

The Early Access period for Forged Battalion is planned to run for several months, during which there will be regular content drops that will be outlined via a roadmap on the Steam forum and incorporate player feedback.
