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 in 1916. The game offers 4 distinct game-modes: Frontlines, Attrition, Rifle Deathmatch, and Squad Defense. There are also many historically accurate features such as realistic WW1 weaponry, authentic uniforms, horrendous 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. In one battle you’ll find yourself rushing the enemy trenches during an offensive action in order to gain ground, while in another you might be defending your recently conquered ground against a fierce enemy counter-attack.

Players can choose to be part of one of the many squad types in the game, each of which have their own distinct tactical roles. 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 they belonged to. When a side has no more tickets, players of that side cannot respawn - the last side standing wins!

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 along with three 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, horrendous 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.

Honestly this game has nice graphics and would be, WOULD BE a good game. But in my opinion it just sucks, its clunky, the shooting mechancis are horrible and it doesn't really feel like you are playing with other people. I have played Singleplayer games where it feels more alive and fun than playing with people in this game. The granades suck, the flamethrower is the most horrible weapon I have seen ever in any shooter.

Would I recoomend it? No.

Just stick to the good old Red Orchestra 2 or Squad.

This is the WORST game I've ever played. It has been called a World War 1 simulator that simulates the horrors of World War 1. However, I am left with the impression that it is actually meant to simulate the horrors of an aweful game. The learning curve is always there, even after 10 hours of trying to enjoy 1 second of this game. I gave it a shot, and a few dozen more, but this game will never be touched again. I spent 13 dollars on this game, and I feel like an idiot for doing so. This game is worth nothing, the company behind it should be ashamed, and I should should be ashamed. Save yourself whatever amount of money this costs and buy something else.

Pros:
Blood, lots of blood (if you're into that kind of thing)
Death cries, lot's of them (if you're insane, you might enjoy that)
Average graphics (let's face it, they can always be worse)

Cons:
Bad English localization
Blood, death cries, other misc gross things (if you're not crazy and have an ounce of decency in you)
Average graphics (MASSIVE room for improvement
Learning curve is huge (10 hours+)
UI and Menus are horrible
Costs way more than it should
Officer mechanics (camp and fire off abilities that sound good, but are really boring)
Soldier mechanics (some classes suck)
Squad mechanics (squads are pointless and should be optional)
Squad mechanics (each squad has 4 classes, some suck, and all need to be filled with NO duplicates)
Pretty much the entire game (find another game)

Note: I have a feeling that nobody left negative reviews because it is a pain to list all this stuff (1 and a half hours of my life)

Final thoughts: 1 star out of 5. One of the worst games I have ever played. This game is a stain on my collection.

Although I've only played 9 or so hours at the time of me writing this review, I can confidently say that this is one of the best FPS games that I've ever played.

In my eyes, it is only matched by games like Insurgency. Other than that not many other games come close to the immersiveness and inventiveness that this game brings to the table.

As an amateur historian and lover of all things war history, it is really refreshing to see a very well done video game about WW1. To take that point even further, it is great to see a WW1 game be done with incredible historical accuracy, unlike a certain AAA title that is coming out in a few months...

From a technical standpoint, I'm playing this game on a ♥♥♥♥♥♥, ♥♥♥♥♥♥ laptop, and I can still get decent framerates and nice textures. So I would have to say that it is well optimized. I have yet to come across any technical difficulties as well. No glitches or bugs.

I would also like to add that the community is very nice and welcoming. Everyone is a team player. No trolls or asshats. Everyone is immersed in the game and makes it a nice experience.

Dim the lights, put on a good pair of headphones, and prepair yourself mentally to get PTSD from this realistic depiction of war that seemingly lives up to, and pays rememberence by simply existing to a collossal point in history.

“Trench fighting is the bloodiest, wildest, most brutal of all ... Of all the war's exciting moments none is so powerful as the meeting of two storm troop leaders between narrow trench walls. There's no mercy there, no going back, the blood speaks from a shrill cry of recognition that tears itself from one's breast like a nightmare.”

― Ernst Jünger, Storm of Steel

This is a damn well made indie game. While not as polished or smooth as other AAA FPS titles, this is definitely the best WW1 FPS out there, and will continue to be even after Battlefield 1's release. The squad system is well fleshed out, and doesn't leave out many major combatants(from the western front anyway), with great variety of different classes and tactics to choose from. The classes range from machine gunners, to officers that can call in artillery/gas attacks and add "buffs" to nearby team mates, to melee/ close range focused assault classes, to sniper units. The different equipment and class types make it feel like you need to "roleplay" your role, as that's what your equipment is for. Leveling up these classes through play adds a neat progression system that gives your character more weapons, more abilities, etc. In addition to class leveling, there is a very unique squad leveling system that makes it feel like you are part of an epic war, as they are persistent across matches. Teamwork is essential, and you really get the sense that your squad is its own self sufficient unit in a much larger conflict.

The variety of squad types is awesome too, ranging from U.S. Doughboys to elite Alpenjägers, to the scrappy Belgians, to the rough and tough French Poilus. As your squad levels up, your player models become better armed and tougher looking, just like a squad would in real life. The ability to name squads whatever you want, from "Donald Trump's Royal Guard" to "The Really Bad Marksmen" or something adds a lot of personality and a feeling of pride as you fight with other players on your team. It's so cool to see so many factions represented in an accurate, respectful manner, I can't believe France is out of BF1 while the Americans are in, makes no god damn sense to me.

Didn't play this much in Early Access, but now it's a fun, engaging, harrowing team based experience that anyone who has a passing interest in WW1 should try out!

- Champagne is a horrible map.
- You're going to think everyone is hacking.
- If you're good enough, everyones going to think you're hacking.
- You're going to spawn in gas.
- You're going to spawn in front of an MG.
- You're going to spawn in front of a sniper.
- You're going to spawn in the middle of an arty barrage.
- Champagne is a horrible map.
- Everyone is h4xsor
- You didn't have to fight in WW1

That feeling you get when you finally have an enemy in your sights, and then get you shot before you can even pull the trigger.
10/10

First things first: what do you need for Verdun?
1. A big computer screen so you can spot every pixel
2. A decent enough PC, although it has problems with running GTX 980`s (sometimes), the game itself is very CPU based
3. A lot of dedication and immunity to frustration

Once you played enough and leveled up, the game becomes really funny and interesting, but you have to stay on it for a while and not get frustrated by some of the veterans running around and getting 70+ kills. It is that sort of game that can waste your entire day not even realising one day began.

I am a big ol' nerd for historical accuracy in media, whether it is Video Games, Movies, or Television. So it's not a very big surprise that I like Verdun so much. With the realistic trench warfare and period-setting weaponry, this game provides a special era of atmosphere. I am a big fan of this game but it is a grueling mess to get into. Adapting from Modern Shooters with their run-and-gun mechanics to Verdun in it's Sit in a Trench and Pray they don't gas you harder than a bathroom at Taco Bell. This game is great for those who want variety in their FPS's.

Verdun is a massive multiplayer first person shooter in set in the world war one. loading into a match, you get placed into a squad and fill a specific role. The summary of this game is trench warfare because you're forced to stay in the trenches You live in the trenches and that is why I love this game. Don't trhow yourself in a open battlefield only to be a "rambo" because you will get instantly killed, this is a tactical game not cod. one thing sometimes you need to use a gas mask yeah the gas mask obsucured your vision, but it's better than choking death.

i recommend this game for lovers of World War I. vote 8/10
