Forged Battalion locks targets to conquer Steam Early Access on the 16th January
Forged Battalion is an innovative and dynamic new take on the RTS strategy genre from Command & Conquer veterans Petroglyph Games, heading to Steam Early Access on the 16th January.

They will create, customise, and develop the blueprints of their emerging faction to create ever-evolving factories and units.
