Update V159 improved a lot of existing features but we also added new features: An advanced ballistics system. This systems removes the old gun lasers and bullets now act like real life bullets. This means the bullet will drop based on distance and that it takes the bullet time to travel to it's destination. Also bullets will now penetrate the body; arms in front of a head will no longer block a bullet but will kill as intended. We also improved some of the networking issues and reduced memory to prevent crashes. For more details please see the changelog below. Now get to the frontline soldier!

I’ve been harboring a desire to return to Red Orchestra 2 for a month now, but perhaps I might be derailed for duty on another muddy frontline. Verdun is a multiplayer first-person shooter set in World War 1, about trench warfare, slowly shifting frontlines and squad tactics. It’s currently in alpha, and there’s a new trailer showing the game’s impressive progress below.

A major update has been made to the game Verdun, after receiving your valuable feedback. This update is one step closer to a full release announced for upcoming summer!

The game received a fancy new graphical user interface which will make it easier to play together in a squad. Another improvement is the addition of distinctive German and French voices, which greatly strengthens the World War 1 atmosphere of the game.
Most exciting will be the introduction of a whole new map, inspired by the battle of Ypres; Flanders! Probably the muddiest battlefield you’ve ever fought in and a real challenge due to its scale. Also, some enhancements are made on the Vosges map and the balancing of the weapons. And lastly but not least, Verdun integrated the Steam Trade Card feature for a full Steam experience. Enjoy!

Version 133 just went live with great improvements in performance. We don't dare to claim we're there just yet, but this should be a game changer already.

Network usage -50% : Last week we've halved the network traffic that is being sent/received. This should address quite some random disconnects and network lag.

Memory usage -40%: When loading, playing or unloading the level Picardie some users experienced game crashes. This was caused by too much memory usage. We've greatly reduced memory usage of Verdun, Picardie now uses +/- 750mb memory where it used 1200mb before.

Graphics performance (X2?): By making use of more Level of detail(LOD) states for objects we've greatly reduced the graphics costs. (For one specific position the 'render costs' are reduced to only 25% of what it was before, however, this gain greatly varies per level and exact camera position!)

While all of the above combined should greatly improve your experience, we will do our best keep polish the performance. We want to iron out even the smallest lag spikes. Please do let us know if you notice better performance, we'd love to hear!
