OverviewOverview

Enlisted is an online shooting game set in historically accurate World War II battle. You play a squad of soldiers and can switch between them as you take on other players doing the same in large online battles. It's unusual not only for its historical settings but because you work with a computer controlled squad competing against a mix of other human and computer controlled players.

You can play as infantry, ground vehicles and aircraft. Generally though, you control a squad of 4–9 soldiers of various classes, equipped with historically accurate weapons (rifles, submachine guns, sniper rifles, mortars, anti-tank weapons, and flamethrowers). While you are not controlling them, the other members of your squad use their initiative and advance in co-ordination with your orders.

This set-up is used to create battles in large maps that can take over an hour to complete. The objectives differ and are based on major World War II battles on the Eastern and Western Front. You play as the Red Army, the Wehrmacht, or the United States Army and the British Army. The scenarios you can choose include the Battle of Moscow, the Battle of Normandy, the Battle of Tunisia and the Battle of Berlin.

In spite of the scale of these battles the result is significantly defined by the performance of each player. You must work towards tactical advantages with allies, while also carefully upgrading your characters between battles to suit you play style with perks and enhancements.
