Streaming the Closed Alpha/Beta?

The closed alpha/beta sessions aren't glorified marketing tools for us, they’ll be used exactly as intended; for bug testing and balancing the game. There will be unresolved issues/bugs to be fixed before release. We will not be allowing players to stream the Battalion 1944 closed alpha in May 2017. However, we’re totally cool with the community streaming the Closed Beta/Early Access versions, as long as content creators link viewers directly to our site and strictly inform their viewers that the game is in an early pre-release state and that bugs/balancing issues are to be expected.

Disable Text/Voice Chat?

Text chat is turned on by default but you have an option to disable all messages. We want to encourage team play but for those players who would rather lone wolf, we're fine with players toggling off text chat. We've played enough Counter Strike against flamers and trolls to know how important it is to have this option. We will look into reports of abusive behavior.

AntiCheat/Reporting System?

The Bulkhead Interactive team have been in many talks with multiple anti cheat providers to get the best support possible for Battalion 1944. We aren't just relying on VAC, we aim to keep the game as cheat free as possible with extra persistent anti-cheat systems to help keep the community friendly and competitive.
