Hardcore FPS Vanguard: Normandy 1944 announced

Historically accurate shooter with real-world locations coming later this year.

Hardcore multiplayer FPS Vanguard: Normandy 1944 immerses players into the intensity of close-quarters infantry combat. In the Raid game mode, every life matters; hold the line as the defenders, take up ambush positions with your squad, and critically stay alive to hold the objective. Alternatively, assault the objective as the attacking team by advancing with your squad, suppressing the enemy, and wiping out the defenders to capture the objective.

June 6th 1944 and the Allied Invasion of Europe has begun. 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. Lead your team to victory by suppressing the enemy and using squad-based tactics to win the fight. With its real-world battlefields and painstakingly recreated weapons, equipment and uniforms, Vanguard: Normandy 1944 challenges players to fight and secure historic WWII objectives during the most ferocious and intense battle of modern history: D-Day.

The developer, Pathfinder Games stated that the 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.

Vanguard: Normandy 1944 will launch on Steam in quarter 4 of this year. There’s no more specific information on the release date, but we’ll keep you updated with anything new.
