Enlisted Closed Beta Now Available on PS5; Normandy Campaign Now Live


Gaijin Entertainment have released the closed beta for their upcoming multiplayer WWII shooter, Enlisted, on PlayStation 5.

The game’s beta was previously only available on Windows PC and Xbox Series X. All platforms also have access to two new Founder’s Packs, each of which are $29.99 USD and include premium squads with unique weapons.

The Invasion of Normandy: US squad Founder bundle includes the 83rd Infantry Division of the 330th US Army Infantry Regiment unit, with the M2 Hyde submachine gun. While the Invasion of Normandy: German squad Founder bundle includes the 77th Infantry Division of the 177th Regiment of the Wehrmacht Field Gendarme, with the MP 28 submachine gun with an extended magazine.

There is also the Armed to the Teeth bundle, which includes both the new packs and the Soviet equivalent at a 25% discount.

The PlayStation 5 release coincides with the big Invasion of Normandy update, which adds new missions and 18 campaign levels themed around Operation Overlord. There are also tons of new weapons and vehicles, including the Beretta M1918 submachine gun, the Lee Enfield No.4 Mk I rifle, the MP 34(ö) submachine gun, the Sd.Kfz.234/2 armored car, the M5A1 light tank, and the Ju.188 A-2 bomber.

You can find a trailer for the PlayStation 5 release, and the Invasion of Normandy update, below.

You can find the rundown (via the official website) below:

Lead your squad of soldiers in large-scale combat, with infantry, armored vehicles and aircraft fighting together on the most famous battlefields of World War II.

There are hundreds of soldiers, armoured vehicles and aircraft in every battle, reflecting the scale of historical battles such as the landing at Omaha Beach etc.

The game gives a feeling of participating in a real military battle, re-creates the atmosphere of the Second World War and is careful with details.

In the same battle you can clear a trench with a flamethrower, play as a mortar gunner, break through defenses in a tank and cover allies from the air in an aircraft.

Every campaign is a new experience!
Opposing nations, as well as the available squads, weaponry, equipment, armoured vehicles and aircraft correspond to what has actually been presented in this war theatre scenario, so that each campaign, for example the defence of Moscow in 1941-1942 or storming of the Reich Chancellery in 1945 – offers a unique gaming experience.

Your personal army
Each squad consists of several soldiers who can be trained, equipped with new weapons and items and then taken into battle. You control one soldier personally while others will be handled by AI and obey your orders. You can switch between soldiers and stay in the most interesting point in a battle even after some of your soldiers are defeated.

In addition to infantry units there is also an extensive collection of ground vehicles and aircraft that look and feel the same in battle as they did in reality. During work on the vehicles in the game, development used their experience with the military online simulator War Thunder.

Enlisted is in closed beta for Windows PC (via the official website), PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X.
