Enlisted Gameplay

As well as other popular projects released by Darkflow Software and Gaijin Entertainment, the Enlisted is a military FPS. One of the most glaring features of this game is its battle system: the combat involves tanks, aircraft, naval units, and AI-controlled soldier squads. The playable character is a squad leader, which allows you to control the actions of other team members directly. The developers’ main goal is to provide players with the most immersive and colossal battles so that the match involving 20 real players would also involve up to 140 bots. As the creators say, they want to provide gamers with an opportunity to “walk in a real soldier’s boots”, which includes to complete specific tasks, control military units, and experience the real battle.

The squad soldiers have different roles, for example, snipers, riflemen, radio operators, and others. The machine crews also control the vehicles. Each time your playable character dies, you will respawn playing as one of your team members. If you’ve lost all allies, the new team will be formed. Still, you should keep your soldiers alive because they’re not just useless mannequins. The bots successfully can shoot the enemies, control the vehicles, and support you during the combat; sometimes it’s impossible to tell if you were killed by other players or by their “assistants”.

The maps and campaigns featured by Enlisted are all based on real events and places. At the moment, one of the most sophisticated locations is the “Battle for Moscow”: it recreates the harsh but beautiful Russian nature damaged by fortifications and trenches. You can join one of the sides of the conflict and fight for this land in a campaign featuring several battle arenas. The game also has a system of weather and time change; it influences not only on the realism of the graphics but also on battlefield conditions.

The realistic physics and graphics is a pride of the development team. All vehicles and guns act extremely naturally thanks to the engine used and polished on another project of the studio, the War Thunder. It has one of the most sophisticated models of damage and destruction, and it’s impressive. Another distinctive feature of Enlisted is its historical accuracy, which is quite rare nowadays. Development team recreated the events of WWII clearly and respectfully; you won’t find equipment from 1945 in 1941 battle, and all missions are based on real fights. Particular attention is also given to soldiers’ uniforms and appearance of buildings.

One of the most immersive parts of the gameplay is the customization of the squad. It’s not as dynamic as battles itself, but it allows you to set up a unique combination of upgrades, skills and equipment. The developers of Enlisted are also planning to add several unique features to improve this system; for example, they considered an opportunity to trade weapons and characters as one of the possible improvements. Since the game is still in the test stage, you can participate in playtest and share your opinion with the creators and other fans of the project.
