Everyone who signs up for the BattleCry beta by June 18 will receive priority beta access and an exclusive in-game reward. Timing and details on the start of playtests will be provided at a later date to those who register.

Combining elements of third-person action and fast-paced shooting, BattleCry offers a new gameplay experience with team-based combat, intense tactical warfare and competitive multiplayer action.

Choose your warrior and faction – each armed with a unique suite of attacks, abilities and imaginative weapons – and battle your opponents for the glory of your nation. Find the character that best fits your gameplay style, whether that’s the Enforcer – armed with a powerful sword, who effortlessly slices his opponents in two, or the duel-wielding Infiltrator who shines in close quarter combat, or the Ranger – who excels at ranged combat.

“It’s been great to see the responses from the Alpha players in Australia and New Zealand. People are having a great time and loving the over-the-top-action, and we are receiving lots of great feedback,” said Rich Vogel, president and executive producer at BattleCry Studios. “We’re excited for players around the world to get in the game this Fall.”

The newly unveiled Han faction and Ironclad map will be playable on the E3 show floor at the Bethesda Softworks booth – #623, South Hall.

Game Description

Combining elements of third-person action and fast-paced shooting, BattleCry offers a new gameplay experience with team-based combat, intense tactical warfare and competitive multiplayer action. Choose from 15 warriors, 3 factions and 5 classes during the beta – with even more warriors and classes coming online at launch! Choose YOUR warrior – each with a meaningfully distinct suite of attacks and abilities – from one of several factions from diverse parts of the world. With strategy, brutal attacks, and unique, high-tech weapons, fight for power and glory in 24-player large battles and smaller 12-player team battles across the WarZones. This is the life of a warrior, and victory is yours for the taking!


In a reimagined 20th century, all disagreements between the most powerful empires are settled head-on by elite teams of trained warriors from all over the world, with each member specializing in either high-tech ranged gadgetry or sophisticated melee weapons. Trained and bred for battle, they meet each other in sanctioned WarZones to face off for their share of glory!

Key Features

Three Factions Vying for Dominance – Open wars are a thing of the past and brave warriors put their lives on the line in imaginative WarZones to maintain peace. Choose from the disciplined Imperial Marines, the fearless Cossack Empire, and the prestigious Han Republic. Take on the role of one of these elite warriors and engage in brutal, high-action, 12 v 12 and 6 v 6 player battles in a variety of gameplay modes and maps.

Five Fully Customizable Warrior Classes – Build and progress your chosen warrior class by earning iron and advancing through the ranks. Each rank unlocks new abilities and effects, allowing deep strategic builds for your Warrior on every level. Select from classes such as the Enforcer, who wields a massive sword that effortlessly slices his opponents in two; the Ranger who unleashes a maelstrom of arrows from afar; or the Infiltrator, using blinding speed and stealth abilities to pick off unsuspecting enemies in isolation.

Risk Life and Limb – Welcome to a world where a chosen few battle in imaginative WarZones to maintain peace. Each Zone is designed to combine positioning; spacing and verticality to redefine your core combat experience. Fight with transformative weapons that harness iron and energy and eviscerate your opponents with swords that transform into shields, bows that can punch an arrow straight through an armored skull, or electrocute your foes with high powered blades crackling with electro-static energy.

The Last Moments of your Life in Striking Detail – Witness immersive environments through third-person cameras as you fight towards life or death. The bold, expressive art style designed by Viktor Antonov (Half-Life 2, Dishonored) supplements the visceral combat and heightens the gameplay experience. Inspired by comic books and illustrations, BattleCry’s highly-stylized environments change depending on the circumstances of the fight.
