Rocket tanks have arrived on the battlefield
06/03/2022 - Gaijin Entertainment and Darkflow today announced the release of the "Burning Sky" update for Enlisted, the online shooter based around the battles of World War II. The update brings rocket tanks as well as other new weapon types and equipment for all five campaigns, new weather effects, the new game mode "Confrontation", new missions and a mission editor.
The American Calliope rocket tank is based on the legendary M4 Sherman tank with an additional 114 mm rocket launcher on top. Use it to quickly turn enemy positions into a flaming hell, and a tank cannon will help you deal with enemy vehicles. The German counterpart, the Panzerwerfer 42, uses a lightly armored platform and is also equipped with a machine gun that is well suited for fighting infantry. Finally, the BM-8-24 is the familiar Katyusha, but with smaller missiles and mounted on the chassis of the T-60 light tank, which allows it to be used on the front lines.
Other new weapon types and equipment include the ABC-36 and StG-44 automatic rifles with sniper scopes, the Mosina M91/30 and Kar98k rifles with barrel-mounted grenade launcher attachments, the Suomi submachine gun, the Mosquito FB.Mk.VI and Breda 88 (P.XI) attack aircraft, and more.
In the new "Confrontation" mode, both teams actively attack and try to move the dynamic front line. You can play more defensively and calmly wear down the advancing enemy units, or you can rely on a strong frontal attack and destroy the enemy in his fortress. New missions have also been added to all campaigns - for example, the cornfield-surrounded village of "La Perelle" in Normandy and the gritty "Railway Bridge" in the Berlin suburbs.
With the release of the update, players will get access to the mission editor along with the Enlisted game client on PC (missions created by other users can also be played on consoles). It is now possible to completely redesign any location in Enlisted by changing the landscape, modifying, adding or removing objects, and then creating the mission itself. With the editor, you can not only set spawn zones, conquest points and their settings, but also change the mission rules. For example, you can create a mission on a large map where players fight their way through several cities. The self-created missions will be available on a special mod portal that will go online at the same time as the update. There, players can both exercise their own creativity and try out the missions of others.
In addition, more options for weather conditions and times of day have been added. Battles can now take place at sunset in the soft light of the setting sun, or on a clear, cloudless day, during a raging thunderstorm, blizzard or sandstorm. New rain and lightning effects and new cloud generation technology make bad weather look even more convincing.
