Frontline News – Extended look at K.u.K. Trooper

For this latest edition of Frontline News we wanted to give the stage to our recently revealed Austro-Hungarian soldier, and showcase some of the details of his equipment and weaponry we’ve been working on.



Early war officer and squad in Pike-Grey (Hechtgrau)

As is always the case during our development of both Verdun and Tannenberg, we greatly value realism. Not only when it comes to gameplay, but also in visual details of any size. Maps, characters, or gear, we want it all to look authentic. This also holds true in regards to the recently revealed K.u.K. Trooper. And now that our Austro-Hungarian cat is out of the bag, so to speak, we wanted to highlight some of the realistic weapons and gear we have fitted him with.



Late-war squad in Field-Grey (Feldgrau)

Some troopers are wearing the Austrian M1917 helmet. This was a domestically made update to the well-known German M16 helmet, of which the Austro-Hungarian forces initially received 500.000 units. At the end of the war, another 500.000 local versions were added, which differed in colour, chinstrap, and placement of rivets.



Late-war KUK squad Equipment

The M1910 Entrenching tool’s main difference to its predecessor is the pointed tip. By the end of 1915 this model ruled them all, and replaced all previous models in the field. It was so sturdy, some were even reissued to the Wehrmacht in WWII. All shovels came with a carrier and were traditionally carried on the left hip, often strapped together with a bayonet (appropriately called the ‘German manner’). The most commonly encountered bayonet is the M1895 Mannlicher rifle version, which originally came with a black painted scabbard. Some scabbards were repainted however at a later stage of the war.

The unofficially named M1888/15 canteen came from different manufacturers, which was only reflected in name and date stamps. When it comes to weapons, Many Steyr-Mannlicher rifles saw use. But as shown by our recent Facebook poll, the M95 is amongst the most popular.

So there you have it. The K.u.K. Trooper in all his glory. What do you think? No, seriously, what do you think? We are always looking for constructive feedback. Everything we have shown so far is work in progress, so we genuinely value your feedback if you feel a certain model could be improved. Thanks and we hope you enjoyed this edition of Frontline News!

And if you can’t get enough of the Steyr-Mannlicher rifles, check out the video’s from C&Rsenal, who helped us with getting the in-game audio sounding as realistic as possible.

FRONTLINE NEWS - East Prussia Map Extended Preview

East Prussia Map - Extended Preview



More news from the Front! This latest edition of Frontline News focusses on the East Prussia map, giving you a closer look and inside information. For the occasion level designer Sjors Janssen takes to the stand, to share his experience in recreating this area for Tannenberg:



‘’East Prussia is the first map we developed with Tannenberg's new 32 vs 32 playstyle in mind. Its setting is inspired by the area of northern Poland. What really sets this map apart is the vast amount of forest. The forest offers a lot of variation, with its bordering managed woodlands, meadows, lakes, simple country roads and the odd farm. Following the frontline of the depicted scenario, there are heavily guarded and partially overrun positions of the Central Powers, heavily bombarded sectors with torn up trees, and collapsed trenches.




What's been really new to the development of this map within the 1914-1918 WW1 game series are the open ranges and the scale of the environment. We've spent a lot of time improving the look and feel of the natural environment with the creation of indigenous vegetation and new rendering tech.



We always look closely at the photo sources available from that time, to try and recreate the types of defensive structures that were designed during WW1. What has been really exciting to me personally is our stride to include recognisable elements of local culture close to the front line. We've been careful to select building styles, ways of harvesting grass, livestock, hedges and styles of fencing to provide a more authentic feel to what the cultural landscape would have been like historically.’’ - Sjors Janssen, Level Designer



We hope you enjoy these posts with our personal stories and experiences, from different members within our team. Frontline news will return early next month with a brand new extended preview, focussing on another aspect of our upcoming Tannenberg release.

Informazioni sul gioco

Tannenberg is the latest entry in the 1914-1918 WW1 Game Series that started with WW1 FPS Verdun, expanding the focus to encompass the Eastern Front. Warfare on the border of the Russian Empire offers a fresh experience for new and veteran players alike, with new squads and weapons, open maps that give players tactical freedom, and a whole new 64 player game mode!

This historical game takes place across the lakes, forests, and snowy plains of the Eastern Front - it was inspired by the Battle of Tannenberg in 1914 where the Russian Second Army was dealt a heavy blow by the Germans. Tannenberg offers a range of game modes - including the exciting new mode reflecting the different nature of war on the Eastern Front - and a wealth of historical detail: realistic WW1 weaponry, authentic uniforms, horrendous gore, and maps based on real battlefields, this time in the forests, plains and mountains along the border between the Russian Empire and the Central Powers.

Tannenberg key features include:
  • Realistic World War 1 gameplay
  • Tactical squad-based FPS
  • Warfare on the Eastern Front
  • Majestic backdrops and map detail
  • Variety of game modes for player counts of up to 64

Experience World War One on the Eastern Front
It’s all-out war on the Eastern Front! From artillery barrages and poison gas to the deadly machinegun and humble rifle, there are many weapons to master. The battlefield is a dangerous place, and a little thought will help you stay alive – lead your shots, keep your eyes open, and be ready to engage in ferocious close combat at any moment.

Authentic Eastern Front Warfare
The development team is aiming to recreate the atmosphere of the Eastern Front with the same level of accuracy as in Verdun. Uniforms have been recreated to the tiniest detail, the weapons are modeled to exact references and the maps use realistic props and terrain layouts.
