Pathfinder Games Launches Kickstarter Campaign for CRYENGINE WW2 FPS Vanguard: Normandy 1944

Vanguard: Normandy 1944 is a tactical multiplayer shooter featuring authentic battlefields from D-Day, coming to Early Access on Steam later this year.

Pathfinder Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign for Vanguard: Normandy 1944, which is scheduled to arrive on Early Access on Steam in Q4 2018. Powered by CRYENGINE, Vanguard: Normandy 1944 presents authentically recreated battlefields from World War II, where players will experience the intensity of close-quarters firefights in an online multiplayer shooter which rewards teamwork and tactics.

Vanguard: Normandy 1944 will deliver infantry combat gameplay where a single bullet can kill and a careless mistake can cost the player and their squad everything. Gamers are given the freedom to complete objectives how they see fit as they take on missions where every life matters and survival is critical to success. Gamers can choose to storm the Normandy coast as the revered British Commandos, take and hold crucial objectives as the elite 6th Airborne, or hold the line as the German Wehrmacht.

Pathfinder Games has developed Vanguard: Normandy 1944 in conjunction with historians who have advised on everything from locations to weapons and uniforms. Players will take on some of the same challenges that were faced during D-Day in an authentic experience which honors, rather than glorifies, the events of World War II.

Tom Dudley, Director / Founder of Pathfinder Games, said: “Authenticity and historical accuracy have always been important themes for the team. We wanted players to become lost in the beauty of the French countryside and terrorized by the intensity of battle. CRYENGINE gave us the tools to do both without having to rely on expensive plugins or deep customization of the engine. Whether it's through quickly whiteboxing within the editor itself, generating and modifying terrain, or creating complex building structures using the Prefab system, you cannot beat the holistic toolset that is provided with CRYENGINE.”
