Verdun is a squad-based multiplayer FPS set in First World War (WW1) . The game is inspired by the infamous battle of Verdun in 1916.

The team has done extensive research in the field at Verdun and has been advised by knowledgeable historians to make sure Verdun is historically accurate. Uniforms have been recreated to the tiniest details, weapons modeled to exact references and maps created from real-life elements.
Teamplay is what lies at the heart of Verdun. You fight for either the Entente or the Central Powers. Within each side up to 4 players can form 1 of the different squad types available to that side. These squads each have a specific tactic, and are based on real historical units of that time. Depending on your squad’s type, players can choose a specific role within the squad, complete with the historical attire, weapons and abilities. The more experience (XP) you and your squad mates earn together, the more powerful your squad will become..
The true experience of the battlefields of WW1 have been captured in a real-time high level dynamic frontline. This frontline map is compromised out of multiple sectors that can be captured by either side. Staying true to the seemingly hopeless situation of that time, both sides attack and counter-attack each other in turn, so you will be forced to defend each captured sector of trenches!
Everything in the game has been tailored to really reinforce that grim atmosphere so typical of WW1. Gloomy clouded skies, an immersive interface combined with realistic sounds and accurate French, English or German voices evoke the feeling of actually being there, mud covered in the trenches whilst peering over your rifle to spot the enemy.
