Verdun Hub: Frontline News June

Welcome to the first edition of Frontline News! We wanted to include you in some of the hard work going on behind the scenes, by adding personal stories to the content that we share.

Below you’ll find a link to additional intel relating to the two most recent Tannenberg previews that we posted, provided by Jim ‘Volcol’ Chilton, lead artist and newborn youtube celebrity (thanks to the video video from The Great War)!

http://steamcommunity.com/games/tannenberg/announcements/detail/1331226238866875025
Of course we are busy improving Verdun too. We recently upgraded to Unity Engine 5.6 and would like to rally more people to help us with general testing and bug hunting in OPENTESTING (V259.6286).

To close things off we would like to point your attention to a cool Community Organized North-American championship. It’s taking place on July 15-16th and can be followed on Twitch. You can check out all the details here: http://opnoobs.com/championships/verdun-north-american-championship

Feel free to join us on Discord , if you want to chat some more about this subject (or any other subject for that matter).

Cheers!

Get ready to deploy East!



Some of you have been fighting across the virtual trenches of Verdun for almost as long as the real war lasted. There have been new maps and squads along with many other updates, and now we've decided it's time to expand the experience to include a different part of the First World War – hell is about to break loose on the Eastern Front...

https://youtu.be/sE32n9kUddU

Tannenberg will be a standalone expansion to Verdun and the second game in the 1914-1918 WW1 Game Series, this time focused on the Eastern Front! As the Russian Empire faces off against the Austro-Hungarians and their German allies, it will feature new squads, weapons and maps, along with a new 64 player game mode. Expect to fight across open fields, and adjust your tactics accordingly. While it can be bought and played without owning Verdun, Tannenberg is closely linked to Verdun (you’ll be able to easily switch from one to the other as you play). This also means that the release of Tannenberg won’t signal the end of support for Verdun, so don't worry on that front.

More details will follow as we get closer to release. For now you can read more in the FAQ.

Keep an eye on our announcements on Steam for more sneak peeks, or follow us on Facebook and Twitter. You can already add Tannenberg to your Steam wishlist!

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.”
8.0 – 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. Verdun is part of in the 1914-1918 WW1 Game Series, with the second entry Tannenberg taking players to the Eastern Front.

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 with many historically accurate features such as realistic WW1 weaponry, authentic uniforms, horrendous gore, and maps based on the real battlefields of France and Belgium.

Verdun key features include:
  • Realistic World War 1 gameplay: Authentic weaponry with realistic bullet physics, skill based weapon handling, poisonous gas with a claustrophobic gas mask experience, horrendous gore effects, and artillery barrages
  • Tactical squad-based FPS: Unique squad leveling system with distinct squad types and roles
  • 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 representing the key theaters on the Western Front
  • Challenging game modes: Team-based Frontline, tactical Attrition, skill-based Rifle Deathmatch and desperate survival in Squad Defense


    The gameplay in this true WW1 battlefield experience is as immersive and gritty as it can get, with features such as optional realistic gore which portrays the true horror of the First World War and authentic weaponry including artillery and gas. Verdun's weapons need to be handled with skill - each gun handles differently and there are no floating crosshairs to aid your aim, along with realistic bullet physics that require you to lead your shots when firing on a moving target at long range. Choose a squad and prepare to assault and defend positions in the dynamic frontlines game mode that changes as each side gains or loses ground. Keep your head down or quickly don your mask in the event of artillery strikes or gas attacks. This unforgiving war isn’t for the faint hearted!


    The 1914-1918 WW1 Game Series currently includes Verdun and Tannenberg (set on the Eastern Front). These realistic WW1 shooters let players choose from a range of squads from across the war, as they fight for control of the ever-changing frontlines.

    For Verdun, the development teams carried out extensive field research at the battlefield itself and were advised by knowledgeable historians to make sure the individual elements in Verdun are as historically accurate as it can get. Uniforms have been recreated to the tiniest detail, the weapons are modeled to exact references and the maps use realistic props and terrain layouts. Everything in the game has been tailored to recreate the grim atmosphere so typical of WW1, from the immersive interface and war torn maps to realistic sounds and voices that evoke the feeling of actually being there in the mud covered trenches, peering out over no man's land in search of the enemy.
