Battle Islands Launches Today on PS4

Battle Islands

Hi. My name is Rory Jackson. I’m the Studio Head at DR Studios in the UK, the developers of the free-to-play strategy combat game Battle Islands, which is launching on PS4 today! Battle Islands is set in the South Pacific in 1942. A platoon of soldiers land on a tropical island and your task is to defeat enemy forces, build a garrison to defend your island, and go out guns blazing to attack other islands with the huge array of air, sea and land forces you have at your disposal — tanks, jeeps, gunboats, and fighter planes to name but a few!

We’re absolutely delighted to bring our game to PS4 today — it’s a major achievement for us, and the culmination of a huge amount of work and effort from everyone here. Battle Islands started life as a game on mobile devices, where it’s been really popular. However, it’s really important to stress it isn’t simply a mobile game, as our PS4 launch clearly shows.

We’ve rebuilt it from ground up to make sure it’s up to scratch for a next gen console like the PS4. We’ve built brand new, higher-resolution assets that we believe look stunning, and built a completely new user interface that really capitalizes on DualShock 4.

We hope you love the WW2 theme — we strive to keep the game authentic to the era, and you can often find us in development meetings debating about whether a certain tank was used in that era, and in that field of battle!

One final thing I wanted you to know is we have lots of great new stuff already in the pipeline that will be coming to the game in future months, so keep an eye out for the regular updates.

All that’s left to say is we really hope you enjoy our game, and its time for you to head out into battle, soldier!

  • Looks great, THANX. Don’t listen to the haters. Im sure someone asked them to not be a jerk >>>>.

  • Indie games take a long time to make, too. It isn’t about the GAMES. It’s about the marketing. It’s about Sony losing market share to casual gaming apps on Android and iOS. It’s about indie games finding a home on Steam and Humble Bundle, and Sony recognizing that gamers are buying games for completely different reasons now than ten years ago.

    The Big Three have been bleeding customers to Apple and Google for years now. So, what’s the solution? Port Angry Birds to the PS3 and charge forty bucks for it, when it’s free on Android.

    Makes PERFECT sense.

    Nintendo did it, too. Sony isn’t the only company desperate to retain its casual customer base. But, the solution isn’t to port old Steam games to its most powerful console in history. That’s like hooking up a U-Haul trailer to a Ferrari.

  • What’s with all of the hate? I hate this, I hate that, this sucks… said someone who has never produced a video game.

    Not every studio can start out with a AAA title. Big things have small beginnings. Support the indies and one day you could go from playing Joe Danger to No Man’s Sky.

    The GTA San Andreas remaster comment was just stupid btw. Wrong studio, wrong thread, wrong audience. Might as well start complaining that Star Wars VII isn’t out yet on this thread while you’re at it. GTA V is around the corner, be happy with that and move on.

  • Is it free for PSN users? Thank you.

  • @vincent
    all free to play games are free for all PS4 users.

  • Hi guys. Love the game by the way. Kills so much time. However I have reached a point were I’m not doing so great and wish to reset my progress. 1. Is there a way of doing this and 1b. How would I do so if possible. Reply as soon as possible. Thanks. P.s. I was sceptical about this game . All other sceptics should give it a go

  • The game would be really good if it weren’t for the microtransactions. I’ve hit a point where I can’t really do anything. And waiting hours to progress is just boring to me. If I could progress with gameplay and not relying heavily on microtransactions, it would be a fantastic game.

  • I agree with you. These ridiculously long waiting times kinda ruin it. I am at the point where it takes DAYS ! ! Thats just a bit much .

  • Hello “Battle Islands Team”!!!!

    I am a 35 year old man from Venezuela, gamer since the beginning of the 90´ts (a level 15 on the PSN history these days) now living in Colombia.

    I had many years waiting to experience the fun and thrill of a strategy game like this. I would like to thank you for a game that I started yesterday, but I am certain that will be playing for a really long time.

    I there is an improvement I can advice, I would have to say it should be obvious by now. As many have comment before on this Blog, you need to get trophy support for this tittle, and its very important that it will recognize all the hard work we have done already by the time you finally add this to the tittle.

    One of the main reasons I would say this is important is because you are asking every player to play for very long periods of time and set long term goals, this should be rewarded and that is what the game lacks at this time.

    I would like to get a reply to this comment if this is possible for the “Battle Islands Team”.

    Have a great week.
