Pathfinder Games announced Vanguard: Normandy 1944, a hardcore multiplayer FPS where players fight for historic D-Day objectives on real-world battlefields. The game will be releasing on Steam Early Access in Q4 2018.
The game is set in the 2nd World War, during the Allied Invasion of Europe. Players will be able to storm the Normandy coast as the revered British Commandos, take and hold pivotal objectives in the elite 6th Airborne, or hold the line as the fierce German Wehrmacht in this tactical multiplayer shooter. L. With its real-world battlefields and painstakingly recreated weapons, equipment and uniforms all rendered in the stunning CRYENGINE, Vanguard: Normandy 1944 challenges players to fight and secure historic WWII objectives during the most ferocious and intense battle of modern history: D-Day.
Vanguard: Normandy 1944 immerses players into the intensity of close-quarters infantry combat. In the Raid gamemode, every life matters; players will have to hold the line as the defenders, take up ambush positions with thier squad, and critically stay alive to hold the objective. Alternatively, they assault the objective as the attacking team by advancing with your squad, suppressing the enemy, and wiping out the defenders to capture the objective.
The development team’s passion for historical accuracy has been underpinned with extensive research and working closely with historians. Uniforms and equipment have been recreated to intense detail, weapon ballistics use accurate data corresponding to real-world behaviour, genuine audio recordings were used to model precise distance fall-offs with immersive 3D positioning, and levels based on historical locations have been recreated from maps, aerial photographs and site visits to ensure faithful representations of these hard-fought and bloodied battlefields that decisively turned the course of the war.
