We’re doing a mass giveaway of beta keys for new turn-based action strategy game, BATALJ.

Looking to try your hand at a new type of PvP action game? Of course you are — that’s why you’re here.

A former founder of DICE branched out on his own to form a new development team with other industry veterans, resulting in Fall Damage. Their newest game, BATALJ, just entered a beta period, and they’ve given Dtoid/Enthusiast Gaming 15,000 keys to distribute. So come one, come all, and help us get rid of these keys!

BATALJ is a turn-based action strategy game that pits individual players against one another in squad-based, tactical combat. The name of the game is strategy: Choose between one of three factions of soldiers, choose your heroes and individual units, and plan out your attacks. Featuring an inventive simultaneous turn system, players will plan out their attacks, defenses, buffs, and everything in between at the same time. Then once the maneuvers are entered, the action phase takes over where the results of your hard work are either rewarded — or punished.

Your actions, strategies, and back-up plans are altered by your squad loadouts. With several hero characters and individual units to select, you’ll find multiple strategies to suit even the most deliberate playstyles. Play aggressively and stay on the attack; play defensively and plan for full-on assault; find somewhere in the middle and ride the ebb and flow of battle. Whichever you choose, you’ll have to find your perfect squad to be successful.

Key game features include:

  • BUILD YOUR OWN SQUAD – Base your squads on one of the three factions in BATALJ; Rusters, Re-Linked or Splicers. Choose one of the nine different heroes. Each one with their own strengths and weaknesses. Mix and match between the 54 distinctly different units to create the perfect squad.
  • SIMULTANEOUS TURNSBATALJ offers a unique take on simultaneous turns where your skill in finding the best plays is key. Lock in your actions, then watch how your strategy plays out. Will it be you or your opponent who is the strategic mastermind, who outsmarted and outplayed the other.
  • FAST PACED STRATEGY – Thanks to the simultaneous turn system you will have minimum downtime with almost no waiting time between turns.
  • HEAD TO HEAD – Play against an online opponent or matchmake against one of your Steam friends.
