Well, if nothing else you can say they listen to their customers lol

And a review about the actual gameplay:
Posted: June 6
Preface: I'm an original kickstarter backer for the game and played in the Closed Beta.

Been awhile since I played but I feel the biggest flaw with this game was that it was CSGO made easier (jump and movement accuracy with weapons in this game is really really high compared to CSGO) but with a COD 2 skin.

Literally made no room for itself, didn't set itself apart in pretty much any meaningful way. The skill ceiling if anything was slightly lower than CSGO and slightly higher than modern CODs. Had this game been released a year or 2 before CSGO maybe it would've had a shot. But it focus so hard on being a competitive shooter that it seemingly missed developing a good casual play field as well.

Hell maybe if there was a single player story mode like the orginial COD 2 had maybe it would've done better.

"We have formally ended our relationship with Square Enix. We want to start this exciting new chapter where we began, focusing on the players.
With this in mind, we will be releasing
BATTALION: Legacy for free on Steam
.

We are deeply disappointed that Battalion 1944 never made it to console and we will be refunding all console Kickstarter backers. Thank you to everyone that backed the console version and we're sorry it has taken so long to rectify this.

We appreciate the passionate support we received from the fans of Battalion and old-school shooters. We hope you continue with us on our journey to making first person shooters that are built with the community and the players at the heart of development."

I think the idea was to save people money by giving a heads up not to buy it since it's going free. I wonder how many people that helps though compared to the number who are interested in this game right now but won't remember this post in 5 days.

I think OP was giving us heads up the deal was coming. For those who don't live on Slickdeals all day, a little notice it is coming up is a good thing. Smilie

OP, thanks for posting. The developers are probably "giving" this game away to (try) to increase player counts. When they get this low the game is effectively dead.

Before anyone gets excited about this deal, if this is a multiplayer-only game it may very well be a disappointing experience ... as you may have no one to play with. Steam has many games posted on the platform that are basically worthless "orphan" games that cannot be played because no one is playing them.

Oh, maybe he should download it for you, too?

Maybe send you a reminder? Wake you up the morning of?

C'mon now. It gives fair warning in the listing STARTS 8/16. Maybe learn to read?
