World War II games abound and, as of today, there is a new one to check out. Gaijin Entertainment announced that Enlisted, a World War II title developed by DarkFlow Software, has moved from closed beta to open beta, giving everyone a chance to check out the game. The open beta will air today on the Xbox Series X, PS5 and PC.
So, how do you participate in the open beta? If you are on the console, the process is quite simple, as you simply need to navigate to the store list for Enlisted on your platform of choice. On both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, the game is listed alongside several different DLC packs, but the base game itself is free.
On the PC, the process of obtaining the open beta is a little more complicated, because first you want to access the Gaijin website and sign up for a Gaijin account. If you’ve played games like War Thunder or Star Conflict in the past – two of Gaijin’s most well-known titles – you probably already have a Gaijin account, so keep that in mind before signing up for a new one. Once your account is created, all you have to do is download the Windows launcher, a link to which can be found in the Gaijin forum post announcing the open beta.
Enlisted is an FPS MMO that will put players in various historical campaigns that took place during World War II. The two campaigns that are currently in the game include the Battle of Moscow, which took place in 1941 and 1942 between the USSR and Germany, and the Normandy Invasion, which obviously took place in 1944 between the Allies and the Axis (although Enlisted puts the players in the role of German or American forces).
Players will command squads of different soldiers that they can switch between quickly, and it looks like DarkFlow is trying to balance realism with simplified gameplay in Enlisted. DarkFlow also says that more campaigns are coming in the future, noting that it wants to “substantially extend” the number of campaigns and add new missions, weapons and vehicles along the way.
