World War II shooter Enlisted is finally heading into Open Beta from 8th April across PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S & PC. Enlisted is a MMO in which players control infantry squads, tank crews or aircraft pilots that fight together in the epic battles that re-enact battles from World War II.
Battle for Moscow and Invasion of Normandy campaigns were introduced during the Closed Beta Test, which introduced dozens of air and ground military vehicles. The Open Beta brings more interesting historically accurate war machines to the game. Enlisted developers Gaijin Entertainment will gather feedback from the tests as well as adding more content to the game going forward. Looks like this is one battle that will not end soon.
