Classified France '44 Gameplay

Players will be thrown into the roles of leaders, guiding a special-ops team composed of Allied commandos and French resistance fighters. They’ll have to recruit elite operatives to form a powerful squad, then engage in a wide-reaching campaign of sabotage and destruction. Amidst this, they must balance interactions with competing factions to grow the resistance network and strike at German targets embedded deeply within occupied territory. However, players must be cautious, as the more chaos they cause, the more they risk attracting the ruthless attention of the Gestapo secret police.

The game provides players with a plethora of exciting missions, each inspired by the real-world exploits of the Allies and French resistance. Expanding upon the turn-based tactical concepts, Classified: France ‘44 brings the authentic World War 2 combat experience to life. Each campaign playthrough promises a unique experience, while the comprehensive Mission Creator tool presents players with the challenge to create, share, and download custom missions.

Players can train, customize, and equip their team with a growing arsenal of skills and weapons. Raising the team’s morale becomes a key strategy, allowing players to delve into the lives of their characters as they battle across the war-ravaged fields of occupied France.
