Players take on the role of a U.S. Marine fighting in the Iraq War during the Second Battle of Fallujah in November 2004. Through immersive gameplay and emotional storytelling, the game gives insight into the complexity and challenges faced by those who served.

The Second Battle of Fallujah

In November 2004, after Al Qaeda in Iraq had seized control of the city of Fallujah, the Second Battle of Fallujah commenced. Just six months later, the Prime Minister of Iraq ordered a military operation to retake the city. Iraqi soldiers fought alongside American and British forces. Within a mere few days, it transformed into one of the bloodiest battles across the entire globe in the last 50 years.

Six Days In Fallujah demands more than just quick reflexes. Players must employ real-life military tactics, weighing split-second decisions that can determine life or death outcomes. Features like the upcoming “Go” Command, allowing control of AI teammates, ensure an extra layer of strategic planning and coordination is needed to be successful.

With limited cover and expertly-hidden enemies, the game authentically simulates the uncertainty and tension of urban combat. New maps like Jolan Amusement Park, with long sightlines and hidden enemy tunnels, exemplify the need for tactical gameplay. Objective-based levels such as Defending “Crazy Horse” also force strategic thinking under pressure, adding to the realism.

Procedural Architecture also injects a harrowing reality into the battlefield, reconstructing each and every space anew with every single playthrough. Dynamically generated, every room and every building shifts into a new permutation for every match.

Developed By Halo and Destiny Veterans

Releasing on Major Platforms

Originally slated just for the PC, extra funding has allowed wider platform support. Six Days In Fallujah is now expected to launch in 2024 on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.

The additional development time will also allow for expansion and refinement from the early access version currently on Steam. Exciting upcoming features like single player missions and the “Go” Command for squad control will only add more tactical depth.
