“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.

I seriously recommend this game. Very similar to Red Orchestra 2 in vision, and it pulls it off.

-Amazing performance
-Amazing sounds
-Incredible visuals
-Very polished
-Gore is grotesque and stunning
-Battle screams and death is horrifyingly realistic

-Animations are sometimes weird
-Ragdolls can sometimes be very funny
-Sounds like breathing get weirdly cut off

Overall, really amazing.

I started playing Verdun over three years ago back in it's infancy in the browser version. I picked the game up in December of 2013 on steam. A few months after it's initial release on steam. I was instantly hooked. The gunplay, maps, and everything was an enjoyable and amazing experience. It was a beta and as expected it had bugs and issues.

Fast forward to April 28th 2015. The game was released out of it's early access and was no longer in any form of beta. Surely if the game was being released from beta it would mean the bugs had been fixed? The game had been polished? Unfortunately no. It's not really understood why the devs decided to release the game out of early access so fast. A quick playthrough would have shown that it wasn't ready upon release and was still a game that played like it was in early access. It still does to this day. Although this isn't where my actual sentiment with Verdun comes from. While the game still had issues at release it was indeed as bug free as it had ever been. I still commend the devs for what was probably the smoothest major update ever in the games history. Basically no new issues to be heard of and we got a fantastic new map Aisne. Release was an optimistic time as the game was in the most polished state it had ever been, while still buggy and playing like a beta, it was still playing better than ever before. Many new players came to check out the game, as did returning players from the early access, and things looked to be on the up and up.

The real issues begin at the end of August in 2015. This first major update after Verdun’s release in April. This update was known as the attrition update. It introduced a new gamemode which known as ‘’attrition’’ hence why it was the ‘’attrition’’ update, but furthermore it also introduced clutter to the maps. Clutter consisted of random trash and crap scattered all over the map. Things like bullets, gear from soldiers, and dead bodies. Admittedly it does make the maps feel more lively and more authentic, but this update was the beginning of trouble with Verdun. It was very clear in the test branch for this update that the clutter added mainly to Flanders and Artois was absolutely destroying the FPS performance. Despite very clear warnings to the devs the update was released. As a result the performance of 2 of the 6 maps in the game at the time had been majorly compromised. Logically you would have expected the devs to rollback the update with no immediate fix to the performance problems in sight. Unfortunately they chose to keep this update in the game and as a result performance of the maps was ruined. People with medium to high end PC’s struggled to run the maps above 60FPS even on lower end settings. This nightmare continued on for four entire months. During this four month period the devs actually made performance worse on other maps, and continued to break the game further. Despite what this added clutter had done to Artois and Flanders the devs still felt it was a good idea to continue on adding it to other maps.

After this four month struggle had ended the player base had seen significant drops and losses, the competitive scene was all but dead after it had been cancelled due to the performance problems, and the game had been through hell. Despite this it was still alive and I was still playing. It was in December of 2015 when performance was fixed finally and I thought we had been through the worst. Going back to a few months before this in September the devs started a campaign known as weapon wednesday. Every week they would tease images/gifs of new weapons and features coming in the future. This would last well beyond December and into March of 2016. This was a rather questionable decision as it really annoyed more people than it hyped as it lasted too long and people became frustrated and impatient. In November they released a new map Fort Douaumont. The map had basically no testing or feedback and it was released in the middle of the games performance issues. To this day the map has never been reworked and is incredibly unbalanced and an unenjoyable experience.

After the performance had been smoothed out the game was gearing up for the biggest content drop it had ever seen. The beta for Horrors of war came out in January of 2016. You would have thought that I would have been excited for this, but I wasn’t. Back when they released the game in April of 2015 they had planned for individual DLC releases. All of them had their own name and were all nicely packaged. I believed that this would keep the game content supplied for years to come and as was advertised with their roadmap they would be split up and released at different times. So what did they do? They decided to release almost the entirety of the content in one go. Rather than split it up so there would be several major content drops over time everything was being pushed out at once. This made it impossible to beta test everything and give this update any chance of coming out smoothly. Furthermore they decided to change core game mechanics for no apparent reason. This would go on to drive veterans away from the game as Verdun was no longer they game they were used to playing. Despite very clear warnings from players that the beta for Horrors of war was still buggy and not ready for release it went through anyway. As a result on the 23rd of March 2016 we got a very buggy and broken update known as Horrors of war.

The fact is that the devs were continuing on this path of bad decisions and shortcomings. It wouldn’t take long for the next bad decision and questionable move to come out. In early June they announced the console port. Why would they do this? Hard to say when the PC version was more buggy than it had been in a year, there was still PC content that needed to be released, and the game was nowhere near stable enough to be ported over to consoles. Over of the course of this summer essentially nothing happened. The PC community was left out to hang and dry while the devs focused all their efforts onto the console port of the game. Days before the consoles were set to release they actually postponed the Xbox release. Their rushed console port which was supposed to cash in on BF1 was amusingly being delayed because it straight up wasn’t ready. The PS4 was released on time and initial feedback from players was relatively unpositive. Despite less graphical fidelity the game was locked to 30 FPS and was very buggy. The PC owners were being left out for a buggy and broken console port only being made to cash in on the new interest in WW1 following BF1 being announced. Recently it was discovered that the devs had intentionally added a distance where bullets would be deleted from the map. This was added to help solve performance issues. The distance was 150m and 150m is a relatively common engagement distance on several of Verdun’s maps. As a result players could not take long range engagements simply because the game no longer allowed them to. As opposed to removing pointless clutter, our ability to engage long distance was removed. While Verdun has hit detection that is abysmal, the game is being ported to consoles, Verdun has netcode that makes the early BF4 netcode look decent, but we get gamemodes people never asked for and clutter which ruins the FPS. We might have gotten lots of content with Horrors of war but ultimately when it comes out buggy and is released all at once as opposed to splitting it up to allow sufficient testing and to keep players coming back for more frequent major content drops we get it all at once. It’s been a year since the game first came out on steam and it’s still a buggy game which feels like it’s still in beta. The devs do not seem to want to ever address and fix some of the biggest issues plaguing the game and I myself cannot run out of bad things to say about Verdun at this point.

Where do I begin, there's so much to say about this game. I may as well state that I am one of the veteran players of this game, been playing this game in the early beta stages and have seen a lot of progress. A lot of progress indeed. A lot of players like me would probably look back when the uniforms were low res and any explosives did zero damage and say "ahh those were the good days". I've had this game for two years and I plan to keep it.

This game as I said, has been through so many changes. New beligerants to the war and new regiments. Chemical warfare and an accurate suppression system that throws off your aim. Also, time accurate weaponry, along with the amount of usage of these guns. It's not Battlefield 1 where everyone is running around with a machine gun. There's few machine guns but mostly bolt action rifles, just like the real war. Plus the tactics used to play the game and win are just as accurate. Certain regiments play certain roles such as reconnisance or offensive regiments or defensive. Fire support and support in general is just as accurate. No "killstreak" ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t, they can only be called in by your regiments NCO who leads your squad, and it's all timer based so use wisely. You also don't get many MLG dumbasses in the game, so that's also a perk. I mean, I am not saying there isn't any period, there are some but not as many like in COD. The community for the most part is mature, you are going to come across some rude or obnoxious people which is expected. In all of my two years I have only seen one person exploit hacks into the game and they have been permanently banned from the game I believe. Plus that was way back in beta days. So hackers are not an issue at all. The game CAN get laggy. Just adjust the graphics settings to where it runs the smoothest and you should be alright. This is also a game that is best played with friends too, so either make friends or play with friends who currently own the game. Playing with friends builds team xp and can provide your squad with better perks and support.

As someone that has played countless hours of this game, I do feel like I know what I'm talking about. There is surely a lot of potential in Verdun yet the developers somehow manage to bury that with their own choices. Starting from a bunch of recently added clutter to maps which then couldn't be optimised (and still isn't), to the addition of a field-of-view and movement update that discouraged aggressive objective gameplay all the way to ridiculous features like a maximum bullet travel distance, Verdun just has too many setbacks to make me recommend this in the current state that it's in. The optimisation is still completely hit-and-miss, and system requirements are just excessive given the final product. Don't even get me started on the hit detection which never seems to improve and numerous bugs, many game breaking. The anti-cheat system was also troubled recently with an influx of hackers, although it seems it is unable to ban anything besides just testing if you have CheatEngine running or not. Don't get me wrong, there are still great parts to the game and the setting is something I absolutely love. If you ignore the negative aspects it is pretty damn amazing. Sure, give the game a go if you want to try, the refund button is always nearby if you find the same issues that I have. I really can't give a positive review with the current state of the game, maybe one day. #bringbackoldverdun

After playing 149 hrs, i would like to share my opinion about this game.

Right now, this is the best WW 1 Multiplayer Shooter avaible. A lot has been written about the good parts of the game, things i do not need to repeat. I do agree with them though.

And yet i do not recommend it, here is why:

1) The netcode is simply the worst. The server trusts the client, this means: Client A says "I hit Client B" and the server informs Client B that he has been hit and is dead. That Client B allready had his head down in the trench is of no interest. See the problem there ? People with high pings will ♥♥♥♥ you good, especially if you are on a very good connection. Because your information where you move reaches them faster, than their movement info reaches you.
Also this kind of client-trust makes the game very vunerable for "hacking-tools" - something that had The Divison loose a lot of players. But in all my play time, i never really experienced obvious skript kiddies and i dont consider it a problem.

2) The game randomly disconnects you upon map change, or when you try to join with a squad. If youre lucky and on of your squad-mates made it through the map-change progress you have to join him quick via steam overlay. Otherwise some other player might take your spot ...

3) The maps are filled with stupid bugs that make you fly up in the air or randomly for example.

4) All the above problems are not new. They exist for long. And yet what do the devs do ? They work on a silly console version which will fail hard because of Battlefield 1.

Verdun is a great game, which is marvelous to enjoy with three friends. But if your not a hardcore fan of Simulator like WW1 with friends: Dont buy!

War never changes.

I've lost count on how many times I died. I died from clubs, shovels, knives to a bayonet. With grenades, pistols, rifles or machine guns. Being gassed, smoked out or mortar shelled. Hell, even cooked by a flamethrower.

Yet somehow I always come back alive. Surrounded by my squadmates, we wait for the enemy to come. We can hear the whistles, the battlecries the sound of boots running through mud, over half buried who knows what it was. It's coming closer. For a second everything is silent. And then all hell breaks loose.

The machine guns start firing, officers shouting something and the sound of your squadmate reloading his rifle.

You seem something moving in the corner of your eye, you turn and see your squadmate falling on the floor. His rifle laying empty beside him.
You feel yourself fill with rage as you charge the enemy who killed him with your bayonet, killing him instantly. And silence once again.

The fear creeps back into your heart as you know what's coming next.
And then you hear it. Officers shouting the order, loud and clear:

Over the top boys! Charge!

You get up, start running from cover to crater to cover. You're almost there and then it starts.

That dreadfull sound of machine guns firing.

First of all, this is my first full length review so take what you want from it. I personally love this game. I have always found the World War 1 era very interesting and this game sure does bring a lot of that to the table. Everyone is so hyped about battlefield 1 that many people glance over this WW1 FPS thinking its a rip off. From what I've played of the beta of bf1, I can say that this game does a much better job at representing WW1. Although I do find this game extremely fun, there are a few cons.

-Is very accurate to the time period
-Has a great variety of weapons and squads
-Has fluent gameplay
-New and interesting leveling up system
-Portrays trench warfare correctly

-Spawn camping is very abundant
-Not the best looking game
-Can't just pick-up and play

Extreamly difficult game to play, there basicly is nobody playing it. The handful of players that do play on pve servers against bots, the few that do deathmatch or team deathmatch are in servers with like 2v2 on large trench warfare style maps. Everyone camps and waits for a head to pop up. Every game i played I was top of the team, the game was better when it was in develpment then it is now.

The graphics are decent, the shooting is alright but every player i encountered told me to quit and go play call of duty, I think they prefer playing against ♥♥♥♥ ai players with no skill

The guns need to be leveled up and unlocked and playing against just a few oponents the one guy who decideds to make this game is life has a clear advantage.

It was fun running threw trentchs avoiding barb wire destroying whoever plays this game but its hard to put in any game time as there is just nobody playing it.

This game is one of the biggest disapointments

1/10 the 1 is for the good looking world war 1 style combat that fails

I really want to like this game:I am a fan of Red Orchestra and WWI trench warfare is a setting that is relatively untouched.But honestly,it is for a good reason:it is not very fun,the game consists of a lot of camping,interrupted by occasional firefights in the trenches.
Add to that a small playerbase,the unity engine and controls relatively clunky aswell as getting dominated by veterans who have more experience and better artillary people with simply better weapons than you *cough*MP18i*cough*Shotgun*cough*Flamethrower*cough*.

Nontheless,i like this game,and i recommended if you want a rather authentic WWI trench warfare experience.

Verdun is great. If you want a slower paced, more authentic (i.e. pistols and bolt action rifles for 90% of players, and actual trench warfare) tactical shooter and don't mind a few rough edges I would heartily recommend this.

Once you get used to the ebb and flow of the battles, and the fact that you die so easily, you can quickly have a good time. Picking off a few enemies in a row, or storming a trench successfully is satisfying and feels earned.

If you're interested in WW1 and FPS games, then you should probably get this seeing as there isn't much else. Apart from BF1 obviously, which I loved, but won't be to everyone's taste.

A big monitor helps.

So I just recently bought this game and after hearing a few positives about it especially after Battlefield 1 Beta got released I was looking forward to it.
What is bad about it:
The game is incredibly dark, both me and my friends have brightness turned to max and even then it hardly helps, it's really hard to make out enemies on some maps and you might say this is realistic and meant to be, but it just feels clunky. If you're watching the short videos here on steam, the game is nothing like it in terms of brightness.
Who is your ally and who is your foe? Well you have to aim at the centermass to really know, unless you are steady on the uniforms. And even when you aim at your ally all you really get is tiny white text that can be really hard to make out amongst everything. Thank god there's no friendly fire. There is no form of outlineing on your enemies so coupled with a dark corridor you have only the muzzleflash to guide you.
The attack on a trench. The only indicator to how close you are to taking the trench is a red circle slowly filling up. It took me 2 hours to understand this, there is no mentioning that you are now taking over the trench, just a sudden red circly. Wouldn't have figured it out if my friend didn't tell me, I thought it was my healthbar slowly filling up again.
Where is the front? When you spawn you get no indicator as to where you enemies are. You have a hovermarker saying Attack or Defend, but it's fairly vague and I usually had to spend some time to figure out where I was supposed to expect enemies from.
The map? Useless. Shows you where you are within the confinements of the map, but apart from that it's basically useless, hard to make out trenches and routes.
Wanna add a friend through steam on the ingame friendslist? Good luck figuring that out, I had to join my friend through the steam function and then add him once we were in the same game using the ingame list. Typing your friends name or just getting him from your steamlist is apparantly to hard to program.
Pointsystem? My friend told me we were down 3-0, how he knew I have no idea, I just noticed the switches from attack to defend without thinking to much about it.
Cheaters, like with every game, they are here too.

So to the good parts, the game got potential. It have the potential to be a good game, but for me it's to many flaws that ruined the experience. It might be realistic, but that's really not a plus when the realism just makes the game feel clunky and unneccesarily punishing.
The guns are good and realistic, there's a progression system available to improve your classes within the various countries. You'll also unlock new weapons fairly quickly which for me was a big plus as I really only found joy playing with a scope on my weapon.
Each country offers small differences to each of the classes, not to big to make them unfair or unbalanced in comparison to another, but just enough to make the experience refreshing.

Now why don't I recommend this game? Because I feel that the game at the current state is not worth the asking price. It is to unpolished and should be labeled early access to avoid confusion. This does not feel like a finished game, but more as an alpha or beta release.
