Absolutely Games’ WWII strategy epic has landed on PC, PlayStation®5, and Xbox Series X|S.

Absolutely Games and Team17 Digital have today launched WWII-based strategy epic Classified: France ‘44 on PC1, PlayStation®5, and Xbox Series X|S. An original take on the turn-based tactics genre, Classified: France ’44 authentically captures the challenges of World War II firefights, shining a light on a lesser known story. Players will take charge of the Jedburghs: a group of special forces dropped deep in the heart of Nazi-occupied France, working with the Resistance to disrupt and sabotage enemy forces in the lead up to D-Day.

Strike from the shadows, don’t let them see you coming:

James Brooksby, CEO, Absolutely Games, said: “The whole team at Absolutely Games are thrilled to finally share Classified: France ’44 with the world. We set out to create our own unique take on the turn-based tactical genre, one that told the story of the nascent special forces and brave resistance fighters working heroically behind enemy lines, causing as much disruption and mayhem in the lead up to D-Day as possible. Our hope is that we achieved that and more – that what we created in Classified: France ’44 is an ambitious game that authentically mixes tactical stealth, intense firefights, strategic campaign, a wide range of characters, and unique mechanics for players to enjoy for years to come”.
