Absolutely Games’ WWII strategy epic has landed on PlayStation®5, and Xbox Series X

Absolutely Games and Team17 Digital have launched WWII-based strategy epic Classified: France ’44 on PlayStation®5, and Xbox Series X. An original take on the turn-based tactics genre, Classified: France ’44 authentically captures the challenges of World War II firefights, shining a light on a lesser known story. Players will take charge of the Jedburghs: a group of special forces dropped deep in the heart of Nazi-occupied France, working with the Resistance to disrupt and sabotage enemy forces in the lead up to D-Day.

James Brooksby, CEO, Absolutely Games, said: “The whole team at Absolutely Games are thrilled to finally share Classified: France ’44 with the world. We set out to create our own unique take on the turn-based tactical genre, one that told the story of the nascent special forces and brave resistance fighters working heroically behind enemy lines, causing as much disruption and mayhem in the lead up to D-Day as possible. Our hope is that we achieved that and more – that what we created in Classified: France ’44 is an ambitious game that authentically mixes tactical stealth, intense firefights, strategic campaign, a wide range of characters, and unique mechanics for players to enjoy for years to come”.

Key Features

  • Unique morale system: Every shot counts. Even if it misses, fire wears down enemy forces’ morale and can turn the tide in the heat of battle
  • Tactical stealth action: Infiltrate enemy positions; set up ambushes, and choose your overwatch targets wisely. Friendly fire can shape the battlefield, so position your squad and pick your marks carefully
  • Engaging and replayable campaign: Define the success of the historic ‘D-Day’ battle with a replayable campaign with 15 different endings. Form a specialist team, court the Resistance factions and aid them in building their strength, and make decisions that lead to game-changing outcomes.
  • Historically authentic gameplay: Mirroring real-world military tactics, missions are a thrilling, varied experience. Use your tactical toolbox of stealth, ambush, morale and flanking to outwit the enemy and aid the Resistance.
  • The Classified System: Built on the ‘Classified System’ players can access in-game tools to create their own missions to share with the community.
