Following a successful Kickstarter campaign, indie developer Pathfinder Games has launched its CRYENGINE-powered World War II multiplayer shooter, Vanguard: Normandy 1944, on Steam Early Access. Vanguard: Normandy 1944 features authentic real-world battlefields which will immerse players in the intensity of close-quarters infantry combat, where teamwork and tactics are vital to success.
Set during the Allied invasion of Europe, players can choose to storm the Normandy coast as the British Commandos, play as the elite 6th Airborne, or attempt to hold back the assault in the ranks of the German Wehrmacht. Vanguard: Normandy 1944 presents a hardcore infantry combat experience where a single bullet can kill, and a careless mistake can cost both the player and their squad everything. The game has been developed in conjunction with historians to recreate authentic battlefields, weapons, and uniforms.
Pathfinder Games was formed by a group of hobbyists who wanted to create a tactical World War II game unlike any other on the market, and CRYENGINE is the technology they chose to achieve their vision.
Tom Dudley, Director/Founder of Pathfinder Games, said: “The very first thing which made CRYENGINE stand out for us was the photorealism, something that Crytek has been the leader in for well over ten years, and continues to this day. Having used other level editors, our Level Designer is a big fan of how quick, easy, and efficient it is to build large levels in the CRYENGINE sandbox.”
