Verdun is the first
commercial world war one shooter on the market. We have done extensive research in the field, and are advised by experienced historians to make the game as true to historical facts as possible.
Verdun is a co-operative game in its very core. The game is build around squads consisting out of 4 players. Central to the co-operative gameplay is the so called co-op xp which is earned whenever you play together with another player. The more co-op xp you have with the squad members, the more powerful the squad will be.
A squad has a certain type, each squad type is distinct and based on a historical unit. As a result a squad type has plenty of unique characteristics that result in different strategies on the battlefield. In Verdun you fight in a squad under the banner of Alliances Entente or the Central powers. The beta will feature Poilus & Landsers
(rifle squads) and Chasseurs Alpin & AlpenJaeger
Within each squad type, there are 4 unique roles to choose from which are specific to that squad and the role it has on the battlefield. Each role gets an attire, weapons and abilities based on the nation the squad is fighting for and its historical unit.
