More On: Batalj

Developer Fall Damage has announced that the closed beta for their action strategy title Batalj has been more successful than anticipated. As a result, they are extending the beta to January 31st. This will allow them to build an even greater relationship with their community, and get vital feedback ahead of the game's next major update.

Batalj, which means "combat" in Fall Damage's native Swedish, is a 1v1 turn-based strategy game where you build a custom squad out of one of three factions. The studio was founded by former first-person-shooter developers, so they wanted to translate the action-focused gameplay and striking art style of the FPS to the strategy genre. If you'd like to get in on Batalj, you can claim a closed beta key here.



Following the Closed Beta success, Fall Damage Studio to extend the Closed Beta into January ahead of major update

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN – January 3, 2019. The BATALJ community keeps growing and Fall Damage Studio has decided to extend the beta into January following the Closed Beta success during the end of 2018.

Shutting down the Closed Beta at New Year’s Eve didn’t feel like the right thing to do considering our active dialogue with our community that keeps getting better and better. Instead, extending the Closed Beta to the end of the month with a huge update coming in the second week of January including a new map, new units and new heroes. We’re excited to see how the meta changes.” said Dan Vaderlind, Chief Operations Officer at Fall Damage.

BATALJ is a fierce online turn-based action strategy game where you face other players in one vs one battles with your own custom-built squad. Skill and smart plays decides who comes out victorious. With several unique mechanics and an action packed art style, BATALJ is a fresh addition to the strategic turn based genre. The title means "Combat" in Swedish, a nod to the Fall Damage founders' background in AAA First Person Shooters. With three factions, multiple heroes and units you can try out different combinations, discover synergies and explore strategies that fits your play style.
