Meet the Armored Train update!
We're wrapping up this year with a major update in Enlisted and in the spirit of the upcoming holiday season. Engineers can now raise a New Year Tree and radio operators can call in holiday artillery fireworks.
Meet the new unique mode "Armored train escort" - you will be able to try it in the "Battle of Berlin" campaign. Even if you play on previous-generation consoles - because in this update the campaign is available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One!
More missions have been added to other Enlisted campaigns. And in the new campaign levels you will be welcomed by 12 squads and 18 models of weapons and vehicles.
Plus, the upgraded Battle Pass also deserves your attention.
Above all, you're once again invited to check out the entire list of new features in the major update. Put bayonets on weapons, take cover in dynamic bomb craters, ride on armored vehicles, give orders to improved AI soldiers, and enjoy the dozens of other cool upgrades we've prepared just for you.
Happy New Year, my friends, and good luck!
By the way, in case you missed it, you'll find the new Enlisted Custom Games in the modes section. You'll be able to create your own battles there with your own rules.
