The battle in the Pacific is on!
09/27/2022 - Gaijin Entertainment and Darkflow Software today announced the release of the "Pacific War" content update for the online shooter Enlisted. The new campaign faithfully recreates the battles in the Pacific theater of World War II.
Risky island landings using amphibious tanks and air support from aircraft carriers, fierce battles of infantry and armored vehicles in a lush tropical jungle with a variety of water barriers. For the first time, the Japanese army is represented in Enlisted, and players can use many unique weapons and vehicles from their arsenal, from Arisaka rifle modifications and kick mines to Zero fighters and Ha-Go light tanks. Also, more than half of the U.S. equipment in this campaign has never been seen before in Enlisted - such as the Australian Owen Mk.1-42 submachine gun and the M13 MGMC flak half-track. Also, a new tactical option has been added to the game - assault with melee weapons, reminiscent of the famous Banzai assaults. Another spectacular addition to the game's arsenal arephosphorus grenades. All these weapons are used in new missions that take place on the famous Guadalcanal coasts and also on the island of Gavutu.
Aircraft carriers were the main military force in the Pacific theater of World War II and are now used for the first time in Enlisted, just like seaplanes, which were also used by both sides. Aircraft carriers are where players providing air support take off from in the new campaign. They can also return here to make repairs or reload ammunition. The anti-aircraft artillery of the ships protects them from enemy attacks during landing. Japan is represented in the game by the aircraft carrier Shokaku, while the United States uses the Saratoga. The seaplanes take off and land directly from the water.
The update also significantly optimizes the game's performance. Enlisted now runs at a stable 120 FPS in native 4K resolution on Xbox Series X in High Performance mode, and Variable Frame Rate (VRR) support makes it possible to play as comfortably as possible (at more than 60 FPS) in High Quality mode on all new generationm consoles on TVs that support VRR. In addition, it is planned to achieve stable 60 FPS on previous generation consoles as well. All these improvements are achieved through optimized algorithms and more efficient use of hardware resources. The game's performance has also been improved accordingly on the PC.
In addition, the update brings numerous visual optimizations, the appearance of vegetation in the distance is now even more spectacular and a fog effect in the distance has been added. The rendering of water surfaces, reflections and light refraction has been improved. Water ripples, foam effect, reaction to rain, new reflections - all this can already be seen on the waters of all Enlisted campaigns.
