Game Update - Hi UI!



The New UI is live!
It’s been a long time coming, but the new UI is here. Thank you so much to everyone who tested it out on the open beta branch and gave feedback.


The new UI is here!

It comes with a suite of customization options for your in-game HUD, allowing you to control how much information you get while fighting!


Just some of the new HUD options available.

Tutorials
We have also implemented a series of tutorials which will help new players learn how the game works. They will appear in the menus and in battles themselves to illustrate key game mechanics, how squads work, and how NCOs can use their abilities.

Along with the new system, we have also updated the Frontlines tutorial video:

Custom Match Settings
To make life easier on folks setting up custom matches, we have now added menu UI for some gameplay options which were previously only available via console commands, including bot difficulty!



Other Updates
This update also brings some other tweaks and fixes. A few key features from the full changelog:
  • Death animations are enabled again.
  • Update to Vauquois fixing sector outlines.
  • Fixed melee lock-on getting stuck when switching weapons during melee.
  • Fixed full match filtering.
Console update on the way
Reminder that there is also a big update on the way for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of Verdun. This will implement all the new content that has been added to the PC version recently, as well as bringing in the new UI and a raft of other improvements to gameplay and performance. As a nice bonus, we are also close to having full controller support in the Steam version of Verdun.

Stay sharp out there!

FRONTLINE NEWS: Updated UI has almost reached the trenches...

Did you know it was Verdun’s fourth Anniversary last April? Four years is a long time anywhere, but especially in video games. Four years on, and we still have another free update on the way - let’s take a look what will be included!

A new look!
The new UI revamps the look and feel of the game. We've shared quite a bit about the new UI already, so we'll leave you with a few new WIP screenshots today:


The new main menu.


Role loadout and squad screen.

Tutorial Hints
To help new players get the hang of things, we will be adding a new system of hints. Here are a few WIP screenshots demonstrating the concept:


The hints will highlight and describe parts of the interface.


They will appear in menus and anywhere else an explanation will be handy for new players.


The hints will explain things during the game itself as well, such as NCO commands.

...and more!
As we mentioned last time, the 32 player classic mode will be going away. Naturally you can still start your own 32 player games via private matches. For instance, check out X’s Friday events - more info here!

Finally, if you weren’t aware, we have a big console update on the way. Both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of Verdun will see the new squads and other content from the PC version implemented, plus the new UI and other improvements.

See you then!

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

The game takes place on the Western Front between 1914 and 1918, in one of the bloodiest conflicts in world history - inspired by the infamous Battle of Verdun in 1916.

Verdun is the first multiplayer FPS set in a realistic World War One setting, the game which started the WW1 Game series. The vicious close quarters nature of trench warfare means that skill with a bayonet can be as vital as good aim with a rifle.



The game offers 5 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. The dynamic Frontlines game mode features 64 players taking turns to go over the top and attempt to capture the opposing trench line.

Verdun key features include:

  • Experience World War One gameplay: Accurate weaponry with realistic bullet physics, skill based weapon handling, poisonous gas with a claustrophobic gas mask experience, horrendous gore effects, and ferocious artillery barrages
  • Tactical squad-based FPS: 15 distinctive squad types representing soldiers from 5+ countries, each with distinct weapons and equipment
  • 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 Frontlines, tactical Attrition, and skill-based Rifle Deathmatch, desperate survival in Squad Defense and epic 64 player Frontlines including bot support.

    WW1 on the Western Front


    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. 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 to contend with.

    Battle your way across no man’s land to capture the next enemy trench line, before switching to defense to protect your gains in the Frontlines game mode. 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!

    Authentic World War One Setting


    The WW1 Game Series currently includes Verdun and Tannenberg (set on the Eastern Front). These authentic 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, we 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.
