Reviews

“Generously stuffed with player-made emergent moments on the battlefield and an incredible sense of place, Verdun is not just a great take on one of history’s more marginalised wars, it also happens to be a resoundingly solid shooter in its own right too.”
9.0 – Gamewatchers - John-Paul Jones

“I became immersed in its careful pacing and focus on squad movement.”
Gamespot - Cameron Woolsey

“Verdun's given me an excellent understanding of what a mess World War I was. Verdun's Frontlines mode really is sort of ingenious—and I think this is definitely one worth checking out, especially if you're already interested in the subject matter.”
PCWorld - Hayden Dingman

About This Game

Verdun is the first multiplayer FPS set in a realistic World War One setting. The merciless trench warfare offers a unique battlefield experience, immersing you and your squad into intense battles of attack and defense.
The game takes place on the western front between 1914 and 1918, in one of the bloodiest conflicts in world history. The developers were inspired by the infamous Battle of Verdun France in 1916. The game offers 4 distinct game-modes; Frontlines, Attrition, Rifle Deathmatch and Squad Defense. Also many historically accurate features are included such as realistic WW1 weaponry, authentic uniforms, gore and maps based on the real battlefields of France and Belgium.

The Frontlines game mode is unique in its tactical complexity. The realistic trenches are challenging to fight in and require tactical cunning to capture and defend. The Entente and Central Powers strive to gain control of frontline sectors. One battle you’re rushing the enemy trenches during an offensive battle in order to gain ground. In another battle you might be defending your recently conquered ground against an enemy counter-attack.

Players can choose to be part of one of the many squad-types in the game, each of whom have their own distinct tactical role. By working together with your friends, you can earn experience that improves the power and versatility of your squad. As you gain more experience fighting and get promoted in rank, you also earn Career Points which you can use to unlock specializations, weapons and equipment.

In the Attrition game mode, the Entente and the Central Powers are pitted against each other in a single battle. Each side has a number of tickets which represents the amount of manpower they have. When a player is killed and respawns, a ticket is deducted from the side who the player belonged to. When a side has no more tickets, players of that side cannot respawn.

The Rifle Deathmatch is a free-for-all game mode, where all players are pitted against each other in a thrilling contest of skill using only bolt-action rifles.

In the Squad Defense mode, the player with his squad-mates will have to defend a position as long as they can against endless waves of AI controlled attackers.

Verdun key features include:
Realistic World War 1 gameplay: Authentic weaponry with realistic bullet physics, skill based weapon handling, gore, poisonous gas with a claustrophobic gas mask experience, gore and artillery barrages
Tactical squad-based FPS: Unique squad leveling system, distinct squad types and roles, voice chat
True trench warfare: Real-time dynamic frontline with momentum-based attack and counter-attack gameplay
Authentic World War 1 setting: Typical WW1 music and style, historical battlefields set on the Western Front
Challenging game modes: Team-based Frontline, tactical Attrition, skill-based Rifle Deathmatch and desperate survival in Squad Defense



The gameplay is as immersive and gritty as it can get with elements such as realistic gore that portrays the true horror of the 1st World War Battlefield. This feature can naturally be disable if preferred. The authentic weapons need to be handled with skill, as they each feel differently and there are no floating crosshairs to aid your aim. Also, the realistic bullet physics require you to lead your shots when firing on a moving target at long range. In the event of a gas attack, you need to put on your gas mask, which impairs your view and gives you a very claustrophobic experience. And if getting shot or gassed isn’t enough, sudden artillery barrages that are called in by NCO’s can pin you down if you’re caught in the open and might obliterate your entire squad. This unforgiving war isn’t for the faint hearted!


Team play is what lies at the heart of Verdun. When you start a game, your first choice is to fight for either the Entente or the Central Powers. You can form one of the different squad types available to that side with up to three of your friends. Each squad has a specific tactic that is based on the historical units of that time. Depending on your squad’s type, players can choose a specific role within the squad, complete with historically accurate attire, weapons and special abilities. The more Co-op experience you and your squad mates earn together, the more powerful your squad will become and the better abilities will be unlocked. This progression is also shown visually as you and your squad get more advanced uniforms. You will also earn Career Points, which can be spent to unlock specializations, weapons and equipment.


The true WW1 battlefield experience has been captured in a real-time dynamic frontline, set in historically accurate locations of the Western Front. These frontline maps are comprised out of multiple sectors that can be captured by either side. Staying true to the typical attrition warfare of that time, both sides attack and counter-attack each other in turn, compelling you to defend each captured sector of trenches!


The development team has done extensive field research at Verdun and has been advised by knowledgeable historians to make sure Verdun is as historically accurate as it can get. Uniforms have been recreated to the tiniest details, the weapons are modeled to exact references and the maps use realistic World War 1 props and terrain layouts. Also, everything in the game has been tailored to recreate the grim atmosphere that is so typical of WW1; Gloomy clouded skies, an immersive interface combined with realistic sounds, accurate native voices that evoke the feeling of actually being there in the trenches, mud covered - trenches whilst peering over your rifle to spot the enemy.

People saying... you get killed lots.... you are dead in 30 seconds etc.

that said, its perfectly accurate and realistic to the horrors of WW1. To make it an easy COD style FPS would be insulting to all those that gave their lives. For once we have a historically accurate game, yes you will die many many times.... but that was the reality of war, the game and devs haven't shyed away from that and should be praised for it IMHO.

Verdun is an amazing FPS shooter with beautiful graphics that goes back to warfare as it used to be and focuses on cooperative squad play.

Verdun takes you away from what you seem to find in modern shooters and puts you back in good old trench warfare where you must rely on your squad-mates and teamwork to survive. Rather than gathering kill streaks for care packages and loading yourself up with perks you'll simply pick a position in a squad, adjust your loadout accordingly and you're thrown right into the trenches. Instead of an every-man-for-himself approach to things Verdun keeps the focus on teamwork and it achieves this by appointing an NCO (essentially a captain) to every squad who can issue orders throughout the game.

The main gamemode of Verdun (and my personal favourite) is Frontlines where you'll find yourself and your squaddies playing tug-o-war for a long stretch of land, periodically pushing and attacking or retreating and defending. You'll find yourself dug into your trenches when you start and your first objective will either be repelling the enemies attack or attacking their trenches yourself. The attacking team will have strategic points along the enemy trenches which they must assault (the other team will be defending these points during this time). Your job as the attacker is to clear out the enemy trench claiming the land for yourself and once you do your enemies will be forced to retreat to a trench further back and hold that ground instead. On the other hand if the defenders succeed at repelling the attack they will keep hold of their land and immediately be able to launch an assault on the opposing team. This will continue back and forth until one team has taken all the land from the opponents and captured their HQ or until the time runs out in which case the win goes to the team holding the most land.
Instead of rushing forward you'll have to plan your attack carefully, following any helpful commands your NCO may issue you along the way. Frontlines (like the rest of Verdun) rewards you for taking your time and scouting out your enemies and if you try to take a kamikaze approach to things you'll likely find yourself dying quickly and repeatedly. This is a major advantage to the game over many other FPSs as you'll find yourself learning to play properly and focus rather than hoping that a huge amount of luck will be on your side.

There are other game modes besides Frontlines and these include: Attrition which is a team deathmatch style mode where you each have tickets which are lost upon someone dying. Once a teams tickets have been depleted the opposing team wins. Rifle Deathmatch is a free-for-all upon which you choose your weapons when you enter the game and can level those up by killing other players unlocking things such as bayonet attachments. The player with the most kills at the end is victorious. The last game mode is Squad Defense where you play single player in a squad and must defend against waves of oncoming AI enemies until you are eventually wiped out. Each game mode has it own allure but Frontlines is the most popular and you'll find the majority of players spend their time in that mode though you'll not have trouble finding games in the other modes.

Squads are one of the main features of Verdun and there are 12 of these to choose from (if I'm correct). Squads have different perks and abilities which are unique to that squad and the same goes with the 'classes' you'll find within each one. Each squad is made up of four different 'classes' some of which include the Oberjäger or Guide, Scharfschütze or Tireur d'élite, Überwacher or Observateur and the Aufklärer or Éclaireur and each of these squads and classes have their own load-outs and play-styles. For example the Scharfschütze is a marksman class and prefers lots of distance between him and his unlucky targets, whereas the Aufklärer excels at melee and needs things to be up close and personal. Choosing which squad and class you play will greatly affect how your outcome so it'd recommend giving each squad/class a try until you find what is right for you because they truly all do play very different. Each squad will also have an NCO who will appoint attack and defend orders for the rest of the squad to carry out. Attacking/Defending these targets and/or remaining within your NCO's command range will award you with extra points and will help your squad level up unlocking various different things for you such as perks and even some additional classes. Although the desire to do your own thing can be strong the gameplay really is geared towards teamwork and you'll find very few situations where going solo reaps a better outcome than going as a group but the choice is still yours and you are not forced to follow orders.

I think one of the graphics of Verdun are amazing and I find myself admiring them every time I play. The attention to detail and sparce placement of objects adds to the immersiveness in-game and together with the artillery bombing and rifles sounds going off creates a perfect war atmosphere.
Also the in-game community seems to be refreshingly nice which is a rarity in most first person shooters I've played so that was welcome. Rather than abuse there seemed to be a lot of friendly interaction between people and players were willing to help when a question was asked.

My only issue with Verdun is the fact it can be very difficult at first and some may find that offputting. It took me a good few games until I really felt comfortable and at first it was frustrating feeling like I couldn't move without being killed. This quickly changes though if you're willing to take a game or two of hardcore defeat and soon you'll find yourself playing as well as you would in any other FPS.

I can see why Verdun came highly recommended to me as it is a stand out game in the FPS genre. The gameplay, though challenging, is very rewarding and actually feels like a war game in terms of realism. Anyone looking for a realistic trench warfare experience with solid gameplay need look no further as this more than hits the spot. A must try for HARDCORE fans of the genre and those looking for a true challenge, immersive graphics and a great community.

Very solid shooter love the ww1 theme. Makes you really understand the flow of the maps and make sure you use your abilities the machine gunner should be used to make areas death zones and mortars and grenades to assault trenches and snipers to pop the head of machine gunners. Flame flowers are pretty useful as well. Over all I enjoy it I'd give it 9/10 myslef But I love it.

Oh boy,

I got this game soley because it was the first World War 1 FPS game i have ever found. I liked it because this time in history is virtually non-existant in the gaming world. Seeing this was a nice change of pace.

The best part about this game, is the community. They are helpful, and unlike most FPS fanbases, they think. When I was mulling over the idea of getting this game, I checked the reviews, like you are now. What I saw a lot of was "you are gonna die a lot, but don't let that discourage you." They were right, but I kept trucking along. I got better, and it was fun; then everything changed down the road.

With the new updates coming out, Verdun fell into the trap that nearly every FPS fell into: Catering almost exclusivly to the marksman/sniper class. I made a discussion about it on the community hub, and they told me just to keep practicing. I did, but there were still some major problems.

The biggest problems facing this game and two things: 1) spawn system is a mess. Too many times have I spawned only to IMMEDIATELY get a mortar thrown right on top of me and have my head blown out my backside. 2) As stated before, catering to the marksmen class. In some maps, like Duramount for example, I REFUSE to play that map as the allies. It is such a sniper's nest. Your game play is literally nothing but spawn, die, spawn, die, spawn...die. To test this, I had a friend watch me and time how long it took me to die when i respawned. I didn't move forward, all I did was spawn and immediately crouch down, and then died. My life time? 0.83 seconds....I WISH I was making that up.

This game has(had?) a lot of promise, but so far I am seeing a bunch of wasted potential. The devs are working, but are they doing the right work? This game needs a lot of polishing. As it is now, I cannot recommend it, but I hope that will change.

I think this game is very well thought out. The developers clearly took their time. They didn't charge $60.00 for their game. Also can't wait to for the update with cavalry and stuff...... Keep up the good work guys. I love the really realistic way people get shot by the way. It's awesome. I love it. GORE to the MAX!!!!

Wow, this Game has gone so far. I was introduced to the game in the Summer of 2013 it is now 2016. This game has gone through so many stages to were its unreal. The devs have added incredible content and I am glad my friend convinced me to buy this game. It is not only a realistic FPS, but it is also a PTSD simulator. Just imagine watching a fellow comrade slowly die after getting his leg blown off, or one of your squad mates drowning in his own blood. You like these features? Well than this is the game for you. Hope to see you on the Front soon.

People said the game was bad so i bought it and join a game.
Got a game after awhile of waiting for more people, with about 20 dudes.
Map is mostly trenchs surrounding it with a big open space in the middle.
Everyone is running to this one little trench.
"TRENCHRAID".
Literally 20 guys in one trench fighting with melee weapons and pistols.
funniest thing i've ever experienced in any game.
one guy pulls out a flamethrower.
everyone is dead except me with no ammo.

My experience with Verdun is:

Spawn as British machine gunner, set up at edge of Trench kill a few Germans then get horrifically beaten to death by some guy with a shovel. Or defend a trench with my British comrades only to come face to face with a flamethrower, ♥♥♥♥ myself, scream at the top of my lungs in teamspeak, hide behind my fellow comrade only to see him burned to ashes before my eyes and run like I have never run to the nearest little sleeping spot, cry, scream for my mummy before getting stapped to death like that guy in Saving Private Ryan while the enemy player was whispering shhhhh "Just let it happen." in VoIP

In conclusion this game is 9/10 but be warned it will give you PTSD

Been having a good time in this.

First.. runs great! The graphics are very nice, you feel the mud, feel the cold.. and hope your mask is on tight as you crawl through gas..
Gameplay is tough, intense and fun. Actually listening to the NCO's of your team / squad works, and important...
No crazy FPS action here, no rocket jumps, no wonder super weapons.. just digging / jumping / running / crawling in mud, woods, water.. digging deeper into the ground for just some cover.
Weapons are as they were, basic infantry rifle is a bolt action, arty is dreaded ( DUCK IN THE DUGOUT!!! ) fighting is back and forth accross the trenches... futile, dirty, horrifying.... limbs fly.. wounded fall and scream.. gas burns at your eyes..

Amazing game.
BEST PART: No one, not a single incident of toxic community. My team didnt hate me for being new and dying ( often ) the other side didnt try and turn the game into a 12 y/o hormone fit.. people didnt run and quit when we were outnumbered almost 3 - 1.. we fought it out.. and the other side even said.. cool.

I highly recommend this one.

** EDIT ** 4/25/16
Have not been able to still devote long sessions here.. but just today was my first encounter with a ... I dont even know what.. attempt to disrupt the game?? Before now I didnt even realize there was a mute button for text chat so readily available. Problem solved.

A review of the blood and gore effects in Verdun.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TKg7quLsGRQ

The verdict:
Very solid body damage & blood spilling (though not without issues), exceptional burning mechanics. The mess stays for a pretty long while, though not permanent. The best part is the exceptionally long death animations that function as a disabled state, which is a key part of the experience.
All in all the experience is exceptional.

Dearest Reader,

I write to you from the blood drenched grounds of Verdun.

The war has taken many of my friends, however my determination to see you again keeps me strong.

The sound of bombs and bullets sing in the distance, oh how I wish I was at home cradling you in my arms once more.

This might be my last letter as the Corporal has just notified me that I will be advancing through the front lines.

If this letter finds its way to you my dearest, then please know that I love and cherish you and our children.

Yours truly Riio

I'm personally very fond of this game. It's become my most favored first person shooter since CoD: World at War, but I'll try to present a fair review.

This review was written following the release of the "Horrors of War" Expansion for Verdun.

Pros:

-Accurate representation of World War I
-Weapons are fitting to the era and fun!
-You start out with 1914-era uniforms and progress to 1916-era uniforms as you level up with friends.
-Fairly easy to earn medals even if you didn't play all that well.
-The frontlines game-mode really makes you feel like you're participating in the Great War
-The writhing death animations and screams will haunt my dreams for years.

Cons:

-Sometimes your body launches up into the air after being shot. It's kind've funny though.
-The community has been sort've notably infiltrated by the CoD and Battlefield community; you can spot them by their endless whining in the chat.
-Getting good at the game will require you to die at the start of your career. A lot. You'll get better at it with the more time you put into learning the gameplay. Most people tend to give up within the first ten ranks. If you're easily discouraged or prone to breaking blood vessels from high blood pressure, I don't recommend getting this game.

If you're a history buff or have an appreciation for well-made World War games, get it. If you're looking for an "MVG +420 Call of Duty sequel" keep looking.

2) likes fps games
3) likes ww1 games
4) Goes through puberty (everyone!)

10/10

Verdun is excellent WW1 FPS game and its for sure my favourite history war shooting game ever.

Graphics is very good and atmosphere is perfect.
Maps are great and for every map there is historical explanations about battle whos going on there.
Game have options for "gore", so when its On it shows the bloody picture of the war what is big plus for the game effect, and that makes body parts to be all over place after bomb or mortar explodes, when you shoot some soldier he starts screaming like in Chivarly medival warfare, here just a bit longer etc..
Game have 72 types of weapons what includes rifles, pistols, machineguns, bombs, mortars, poison gases etc.
Its based on trench warfare what gameplay makes static in some sort of Red Orchestra 2. There are 3 game mods and a co-op modes based on hold the ground against AI.
Developers are still working on the game and recently they release (for free ofc,) new pack what game makes even more exciting. Also after sometime they release updates for the game for imprvements.
Community is great, mostly nice and chill people. There is no co*ksucki*g little ♥♥♥*s who f*ck your mom every match.

Things I dont like in this game is there are still some minor bugs. Biggest issue what I experienced, but very rarely, maybe 2 times, that weapon disappears from your hands and you are disabled to do anything except walking.

But in the end game is playable and awesome.

Like I said, gameplay is statical warfare. If you are some fast jump shooting killer player guy who dont like old guns SPECIFICALLY bolt-action rifles, then its better for your wallet and your nervers to skip this beauty. In this game many dies, A LOT. But you never know, maybe when you start playing it you may like it, so besides this review play some youtube video about gameplay of the game.

True Story

- Joined a French squad called "French Fries".
- We actually play as a team.
- We start sneaking along the edge of the map toward the enemy Trench.
- Our team fails to get a foothold and we have to retreat.
- Gas kills one of my squad mates, his finals words were "HOW 2 PUT ON MASK".
- We make a mad dash across No Mans Land, trying to get back to our own Trench.
- Squad Leader is running beside me and he gets shot in the back, he falls over and writhes around screaming in pain.
- Only 2 of us left.
- I get back to our Trench.
- I see my last squadmate running toward me, he gets within arms reach of me before being shot in the back of the head.
- I feel the PTSD coursing through my veins.
- Artillery shell lands right in front of my face and blows my left arm off.

0/10 this game made me cry.

This is a really rad shooter. One of my favorites, it's indie enough to distance itself from the bad parts of big name shooters, but it's amazing enough to keep the good stuff. All the while maintaining its own flavor. Along with more updates and whatnot.

The best WW1 simulator
Very good graphics without many bugs
Teamwork
The game has all the ranks and the squads with full weaponary ( authentic)
Big maps
I will highly recommend Verdun 1914 -1918
P.s 15 min for evry battle ( that is good cause you didint tire )
