You might not be immediately familiar with the “Enlisted” name, but it’s a pretty great looking online-FPS. And now it’s a part of the Series X’s launch.
The battlefields of WWII are the setting for a promising looking squad-based MMO called Enlisted. The game, from Gaijin Entertainment, revisits some of the most famous battles of the second Great War, in a few different ways.
Players will be able to take up rifles as a squad of infantryman, drive a tank, or even pilot a fighter high above the fight. That’s not a typo there either, you can play as an entire squad, which sounds particularly interesting. So even though this is an MMO, you can take command of a group all by yourself, switching between them at will. Pretty cool.
Enlisted is divided into campaigns, each of them covering a specific key battle of World War II. Available factions, squads, weapons, gear, ground vehicles and aircraft depend on the gear that was really present in the specific theater of operations, leading to a unique experience provided by each campaign. At first, players will be able to fight in the “Battle for Moscow” that recreates the heavy clashes between German and Soviet troops in the outskirts of the Russian capital during the winter of 1941-1942. The next campaign to arrive in the Game Preview will be the “Normandy Invasion” covering D-Day landing and following battles. There are more campaigns already in development including the “Battle for Berlin” and others.Enlisted press release
Enlisted uses the Dagor Engine, witch was last seen in War Thunder and Cuisine Royale. Gaijin says that, combined with a “Proprietary Ray Traced Global Illumination system”, will provide some spectacular visuals. Expect a bump too on the Xbox Series X, where the game will be making use of the console’s ray tracing support.
Enlisted will be a timed console-exclusive for the Xbox Series X|S, and will be available for the system’s launch on November 10th. The Battle for Moscow will be the first campaign, according to the developer, with Normandy “to follow”.
