Independent developer Fall Damage Studio today announced that its turn based action strategy game BATALJ will be launching on February 21st. Having extended its closed Beta by a whole month the development team has utilized the time to process crucial player feedback on units, squad combinations and different maps.
BATALJ allows players to custom build their own squads from one of three available factions in the game, Rusters, Re-Linked or Splicers, all providing a unique set of different skills and abilities. BATALJ players create squads with one of nine different heroes and a selection from 54 different units to explore a myriad of tactical options, allowing them to engage in different strategies against their opponent.
The simultaneous turn based nature of BATALJ means that there’s very little downtime between turns providing players with a fast paced strategy game as they attempt to outwit each other with a combination of units and heroes in the ultimate turn based head to head experience.
“We’ve been hard at work getting the game as polished and stable as we can. The team set out to deliver three factions, nine heroes and 54 units – and that’s what we’re doing. Ultimately giving players millions of squad variants to play around with and ‘break the meta’. We are super excited to announce that the release date for BATALJ will be the 21st of February.”Anders Gyllenberg, CEO at Fall Damage
