Hi Battalionites, Tuna here.

It’s time to announce our latest event!

So on November 11th, we will be holding an 8 hour livestream in aid of Operation Supply Drop (http://operationsupplydrop.org/). 8 members of our studio will be teaming up and playing the realistic tactical multiplayer FPS ”Squad” during which we’ll be fighting it out in a private server against other Developers, Youtubers and Streamers.

Squad is an online multiplayer FPS that aims to capture combat realism through communication and teamplay. You can read more about them here: http://joinsquad.com/

Their team have been super supportive of what we’re trying to do with Battalion 1944, seeing as they also work in Unreal Engine and have been working on Squad for around 2 years now, they’ve acted as trailblazers and have generously offered us technical advice and support to overcome some of the hurdles you see as a multiplayer FPS in Unreal Engine 4. 

Squad is also going to be running a free weekend commencing, the day of the livestream and running for three days. Visit: http://store.steampowered.com/... to get it!

Operation Supply Drop provides games and gaming hardware to military service personnel deployed overseas as well as working to build lasting networks with the larger community to drive mutual support for today’s active duty military, their families and the veteran population.

Operation Supply Drop is a great charity we are happy to support

We will be streaming every minute of gameplay on https://www.twitch.tv/bulkheadinteractive and this will be hosted on the charity streaming site Tiltify.com.
